About

We started this Patreon as a way to help us keep making comics! Bug has been making webcomics since she started  Messenger way back in 2004, with Delade pitching in on and off to help edit until the start of Follower, where he is now the primary script writer. We’ve usually had to work on these passion projects around jobs and with small budgets, but with your support we could devote more time and money to their creation. It would help us buy supplies, web hosting, and any necessary updated or subscription software. That would mean more and better pages, more often, and the possibility of other new creative stuff from us! Messenger, our longer-running comic, might even find its ending after 15 years!

For more information, check out the goals section, which goes into detail about some of our plans and how reaching them will benefit all our readers! You can also find out more about us and our work on our website,  Radio Chio!



Messenger is a story about a girl with a sword in a post-apocalyptic future, and the friends she makes during her adventure on the wasteland. Updates with one new page on Saturdays. Recommended for teen readers and up.

Follower is a companion story to Messenger: in the not-so-distant future, a secret military project works to genetically engineer super-obedient human-animal-hybrid soldiers. What happens when they begin to have questions and ideas of their own? Recommended for teen readers and up.

Both comics will always be free to read online! But with your support, we can do more!


When you support our Patreon at any pledge level, you’ll get access to bonus content like previews of pages in progress, early pages before they’re posted to the website, and behind the scenes material. If you pledge a little more, you can also get exclusive wallpaper downloads, custom artwork just for you, and other rewards!

About the Creators
Bug and Delade are a husband and wife creative duo. They’ve been talking about writing and creating for as long as they’ve known each other, and Follower is their first major joint project together.


Goals
$54 of $100 per month
Bigger, better pages!
If we can make it to $100/month, Bug can start to spend the extra time to update the websites to fit larger comic pages! I’ve been making webcomics since 2004, and screen resolutions have changed. It’s time to get with the times!
