As some of you may already be aware of – because of the many emails I have been writing over the last 24 hours – there has been movement regarding who the next Exiern author will be.

Specifically, we’ve chosen one. As of right now everyone who applied has been sent an email thanking them for their submission, with a little note from me. Every submission had great material in it, clearly submitted by people who are passionate about this comic. Rejecting any of you was not easy, and writing those emails did not make my day go any better. Every one of you submitted something worthy of my time and I hope I was able to highlight that in my emails to you.

If, for any reason, one of my emails failed to reach its destination I’m sorry this was how the message was broken to you. Please let me know if you did not get a response from me.

I’m sure many of you are wondering who we’ve chosen, but that is an announcement I want to save for another day, once Drowemos has had the chance to begin working on the transition with the selected (and accepted) applicant.

More-so, at this time I want to acknowledge everyone who submitted. Thank you for your energy, interest, and passion for EXIERN. It is this comic’s amazing audience, whether you submitted material or have been willing to weather changes in the creative team, that keeps it going. I fully believe we will continue to write a series worthy of your readership…and I hope you will think so as well.

And don’t worry, more updates will come.
