Thank you so much for reading Further Adventures No. 1
There are four ways you can support the production of new issues
1 - Talk about the comic
I’m making this option number one because it’s so important: Would you mind telling people about Further Adventures, please? 😊
Please share the link to this first issue. And not only on social media. Why not check in with an old friend who’s hooked on animated shows? DM that colleague who loves sci-fi movies. Tell the next person you meet for lunch that you’ve discovered something new — let’s build the first community of readers!

2 - Buy a hi-res download to read offline with your favourite CBR reader
You can purchase a copy of this exact same issue on my Gumroad Store. You’ll get instant access to the issue in three DRM-free file formats: a CBR file, a CBZ file1, and a PDF. You get all three in a single purchase. These go to your Gumroad library, and you can download them as many times as you like (as long as Gumroad exists 😉). So, if you’re unsure how to view a CBR file, you can try the PDF first and still have access to the CBR version when you want to try it.
Don't know how to use a CBR file? It's easy but takes a few steps
Apps that read CBR files have navigation options especially suited to reading and saving your place in digital comic books. Moreover, CBR files can be high-resolution, so you can pinch and zoom right in when you want to see detail in a panel.
You can get these files onto your device through a direct download, or using cloud storage, or with a USB cable. Then you’ll need to install a compatible app and import the file into that.
That’s a lot of steps, and I’m sorry that I can’t provide a step-by-step guide because different devices handle files in different ways. But once you’ve done it once, you’ll find it really easy to do it again.
What app do I need?
On an Apple iOS device, you can use Panels, which is free and excellent. On Android devices, there are many options but the better ones often require a one-time purchase. I use a Kindle Fire HD and bought ComicCat from the Amazon App Store — I think Further Adventures looks excellent on it! Finally, on a computer, you can use a free desktop version of CDisplayEx (Windows) or YACReader (Mac) to read the CBR on your enormous monitor. I consider this the IMAX experience.
Why buy a comic that you just read?
You can support the production of Further Adventures and get something in return: a high-definition experience when you next want to read the issue where it all began.
3 - Buy me a coffee ☕😊
I write, plan, and create each issue of Further Adventures alongside my job as a freelance artist for indie games and social media campaigns. I also make time for other things important in my life. Coffee helps. You can make a small contribution towards my caffeine budget on my Ko-Fi page using PayPal, Stripe, or Apple Pay.
