Hello, all!

How have you all been?? I’m doing great! I hope you’re enjoying the chapter so far!

So, I wanted to announce that I am putting We Are Here Forever on WEBTOON! I noticed that there is an awesome community of creators and readers on that platform. Hopefully they will enjoy the comic!

I’m going to upload each page around one day at a time. I might skip some days, but I’ll continue until we are all caught up. Then I’ll start uploading at the same time as all my other platforms.

If you’re trying to find my comic on mobile, search “We Are Here Forever” and it should come up! The same goes for PC/MAC, but here is a link if it helps you guys out:

WHAT I WISH I'D KNOWN: FIRST BOOK TIPS FROM DEBUT AUTHORS

THU, MAR 14, 2019
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
WSCC 603


Please check out the link above for more info if you’re interested in attending! I’m so excited to discuss this topic, because as a first time author I have a lot of thoughts!

I will be at ECCC all of Thursday and possibly on Friday. If you see me walking around feel free to say hello!

I'm back! Here are some updates!

Hello, all! I wanted to come back a bit earlier, but that’s okay! I am finally back! Updates will resume just like they did before. I will post a page every Wednesday at 8pm Eastern Time.

About the Tumblr…

I wanted to quickly talk about my Tumblr site. As most of you know, Tumblr recently changed its policies regarding nudity and explicit material. A lot of content has been getting flagged. Although sometimes the algorithm will flag content that shouldn’t be a problem for their new rules. That being said, some of my posts were flagged and I had to appeal them. I know it’s kind of silly, considering that WAHF is for all ages, but a lot of artists on Tumblr have been affected by this change as well. It’s a bit unfortunate. I know that several artists moved to other platforms such as Twitter and abandoned their Tumblr. I can understand where they’re coming from, considering that it’s difficult to stay on a website that doesn’t support their content.

So, what am I going to do? I am going to stay on Tumblr for now. A lot of my readers use Tumblr and I don’t want to leave them! If any other significant changes end up happening, I may change my mind. But for now, I will use the platform.

This is one of the reasons why I created my own website! I have the freedom to post whatever I want here. I don’t have to abide by someone else’s rules or policies! If you’re an artist and you aren’t happy with Tumblr right now, I recommend making your own website. Plus there are other great platforms with big artist communities.

Book Info and Updates!

So, if you guys haven’t checked my website in a while, my book cover has been released! Please check it out if you haven’t already. I’m really excited about it!

I am FINALLY done working on the WAHF graphic novel! There were a few odds and ends I had to complete, but I am finally on the other side!! I’m super proud of how the book turned out and I think you guys will love it too. I put my heart and soul into it all last year and I’m excited that you guys will get to read it soon!

Please stay tuned! There are more announcements to come. Get ready for an exciting year!

Graphic Novel Cover Reveal!

The cover of my upcoming graphic novel has finally been revealed! I really hope you guys like it! On the front you can see that there are some of your favorite characters, such as King!

I had a lot of fun making this cover. It’s playful and whimsical, yet loud and colorful! I think this will get a lot of people excited to see what’s inside!

The cover was revealed by Women Write About Comics, followed by a short interview about the book. If you’re interested, click here!

The book will officially be released on July 30, 2019! For more info, please check out its official page on Quirk Books!

I am going on hiatus! Also, calling for all fanart!

Hello, my wonderful readers! Your magical comic creator is here to speak about things!

So, I wanted to come on here and say that We Are Here Forever is going to take another hiatus. I'd love to start working on the next chapter immediately, but I'm working to finish the graphic novel! My deadline is coming up soon and I really need to get it done, so I'm going to have to shift my focus entirely on completing the book. Once the book is done, I'll let you guys know and start working on the next chapter. My hiatus will last for approximately 2 months.

Thanks so much for your support! I'll post some fun stuff during this break.

Also! I am going to be posting some fan stuff in the meantime! If you would like to submit any fanart, fanfic, fancomics, poetry, or anything We Are Here Forever to me, I'd love to post it. If you’d like me to include your name and social media, please send all info to me. Please send to wearehereforevercomic@gmail.com and name the subject of your email “Fan Stuff”.

Here are some disclaimers: Please keep in mind that you own all forms of content that you send to me. I will not post your content in any other place other than this website and my tumblr. I will not sell your content in any way. NSFW content will not be posted.

If you would like to see what I’m up to, please follow me on social media! I’m on twitter and instagram as @michellegish

Thanks so much and I'll talk to you guys soon!
