New Solo Acoustic from me and @TroyBrownfield this week!
Only three more pages until the end of chapter two! Time to go get caught up with the last TWO years of Solo Acoustic in our archives.

From Troy Brownfield:

So Ben and I were talking about the fact that we've been doing Solo Acoustic for two years...



Kids, the webcomics at have been doing it a while.
Solo just turned TWO. Sparkshooter just turned THREE.
If you aren’t checking in every week, you’re missing damn good comics from me and Enkaru Other Worlds (Sparkshooter) & me and Ben (Solo) (not to mention Sarah Vaughn, who drew Sparkshooter's first two chapters. Yes, that Sarah Vaughn. Alex + Ada Sarah Vaughn. Rosy Press Fresh Romance Sarah Vaughn).
When you check out our comics and dig them, because you will, feel free to support us in their continued creation
Read. Enjoy. Share. Read again. 
Thank you!

Sparkshooter and Solo Acoustic Patreon Launched

As you may or may not have seen earlier, we launched our Patreon to support Sparkshooter and Solo Acoustic. Since then, a couple of people have told me that they don't know about Patreon.
If you aren't sure what Patreon is, it's a site that allows YOU to become a patron of the things that you enjoy, whether it's music, aspiring filmmakers, COMICS, or more. We're looking for our readers to support our ongoing series for as little as $1 a month. If you pledge your support, you get access to some fun stuff at different levels (which you can see on the page) from me and Enkaru and Ben Olson. Thanks again! - Troy Brownfield
