KLC Press Week 52 Recap!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY CHAIN GANG! ⛓ Let’s recap the end of our first year on Substack, and also recap what we have announced for the coming Year 2. Shall we?
Hey there! It’s your anniversary Supple Boiz, and we’re back for an extra-romantic weekly recap! Another week of great KLC Press content has passed once again! If you missed any of the action, take a look at klcpress.com and check out the past week’s newsletters to catch up! Let’s look back at the week:
We kicked off our final week of Year 1 of the KLC Press Substack… By announcing everything that’s coming in Year 2 of the KLC Press Substack! That’s right, on Monday we dropped a huge, extra-special announcement post laying out everything we can reveal about what’s coming so far. To recap: TWO NEW MYSTERY COMICS SERIES (one written by Ryan Stegman and drawn by Tyrell Cannon, and one written by your friendly neighborhood SUPPLE BOIZ!), a new storefront where KLC subscribers will get early access to exclusives and discounts, the return of the Amazing Friends Podcast Network, the continuation of our Community Livestreams, HUGE price slashes, and digital copies of VANISH galore! There is so much more cool stuff coming your way in Year 2, and you can find all the details in the post right HERE! We truly hope you’ll join us for the continuation of this crazy journey. And if you don’t, what’s your plan? To go drop your hard-earned $5 on Chip Zdarsky’s Substack instead? Yeah, we’re sure you’ll be super happy with that decision in the cold light of day.
As this week was all about looking ahead to Year 2, Ryan and the Supples hopped on a livestream on Wednesday (though not one of our typical livestreams where the wonderful KLC Press community joins Ryan Stegman and the Supples onscreen to hang out while Stegman whips up a beautiful sketch which is then raffled off to one lucky subscriber) to take your questions about everything that’s coming up. You guys had lots to ask us in the comments, and hopefully we cleared everything up in time to get your hype trains rolling. If you still have questions, check out the livestream HERE or drop a comment below! Apologies in advance that the livestream gets completely derailed by an unsavory appearance from Chip. If it helps, here’s a screenshot of Chip being upset that Supple Boi Ethan landed a sick burn on him.
And that was about it for us this week! But before we sign off, behold…
A VERY IMPORTANT WORD FROM JOHN J. HILL
Hey everyone! I’ve spent the last year behind the scenes (for the most part) managing this insanity we built that you all know and love. It’s been fun, challenging, infuriating at times (mostly dealing with technical constraints with the platform), and ultimately a blast to keep the train rolling and make this Substack look and feel as good as it possibly can.
A huge thanks to Ryan, Donny, Ethan, and Griffin for giving their all while we stumbled through figuring out how to make this all happen. On day 1 we had zero experience with the platform, and now we have an entire year of great entertainment to look back on… as do YOU, just check out the ARCHIVE!
With all that said… between the giant load of work on my plate right now (VANISH, a handful of yet to be announced comic titles, creative direction for AMC Networks Publishing, plus a lot of other top secret projects), as well as me moving over to build out and manage STEGWORLD (Ryan’s store, also home to the KLC PRESS merch), my time is spread way too thin. Seems like the best time to hand the reins fully over to Ethan and Griffin, who are livestreaming and podcasting masterminds and way better at front facing with the community than I could ever be.
A special thank you to all you subscribers for sticking with us through it all! I hope you’ve enjoyed our antics over the last year, there’s lots more to come from KLC PRESS in year two!
See you in the funny books! ⛓⛓⛓
