Welcome to the newly relaunched Black Rose site!

Those of you who’ve been with us for a while know that we’ve been self-publishing Black Rose as a print comic for the past three years. Today marks our entrance into the digital publishing realm as we relaunch Black Rose as a webcomic!

We’re going to start off posting a page every weekday, Monday through Friday. We’ll start from Black Rose’s beginning and work our way through the first six-issue arc (which is currently available in print, if you didn’t know!). After that, we’ll head into new territory with Issue #7 (and beyond), and slow things down to our normal, ongoing update schedule of every Tuesday and Thursday.

From this point forward, our “issues” will be released digitally on our site, a page at a time. In fact, we’re no longer printing copies of our first six issues. If you’ve been wanting to get your hands on a full set, pick them up before we run out!

But fear not, print lovers. We’re continuing to release Black Rose in trade paperbacks, along with our other printed stuff like art prints and limited-edition sketchbooks. We’re big book fans ourselves and really prefer reading (and producing!) trades as opposed to issues. Hopefully you do, too!

If you’re an existing reader, thanks for sticking with us.  After the initial recap of our existing material, Issue #7 will be coming out on our site later this year, kicking off our second story arc. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on — things are going to get epic.

On a more personal note, designing and coding this site has consumed a significant portion of my free time lately, and there are still a ton of improvements I want to make.  Bear with me as I get things up and running. If you find something that looks broken, chances are it’s already on my radar!

Oh, and welcome to Black Rose — the death of fantasy.
