Hey everyone, since I get a lot of people asking about the status of the Phantom Futa comic I wanted to give you an update. Unfortunately, things aren’t looking good right now.
As some of you may or may not know, Jam Flavored was working on the comic until she went off the grid. We had a couple false starts with her, and that should have been a sign, but her rates were too good to pass up so Rexxon and I moved forward. I payed the deposit, she started working on the comic and even went so far as to livestream the cover, but then she fell off the map. Rexxon said he tried contacting her multiple times asking if she could just give us whatever she had already worked on and we’d call it even, but he never heard back from her. Then reports started coming in from other people that had commissioned her, paid up front, and never heard back from her. It sounds like Pirate Cashoo all over again, but at least with Cashoo we got the WIP (it wasn’t worth all the money up front but at least it was something).
So here we are, back to square one. At this point I really don’t know what to do. At the price Jam quoted us I would have made the comic free for everyone and just eaten the cost, but every other artist Rexxon has gotten price quotes from is way out of my league. It would cost over a couple grand to have it done. I’m open to suggestions though. I want to see a Phantom Futa comic as much as you all do, but I don’t have that kind of money sitting around. I’ll look into some crowd funding options, but if anyone has an other ideas please let me know. I’m all ears.
Obviously, just like with Pirate Cashoo, if Jam ever pops back online be weary of commissioning work from her. I hesitate to label people as scammers, but the truth is she basically stole money from me and didn’t keep her word so I guess this is a “if the shoe fits” sort of thing. It’s a shame too because Jam’s a good artist, I hate to see her blow it like Cashoo did, but what can you do?
Anyways, that’s it. Feel free to leave a comment or email me directly if you have an ideas for the comic. The story is written and ready to go, I just need to figure out how to get it drawn.
