Guys, I’m so proud that we’ve made it all the way to Part III. When I started this comic I was at the lowest point in my life: unemployed, disappointed in myself, scared and alone. Now 204 pages later I’m happy, confident, and gainfully employed at freaking Marvel Comics. I owe a lot of that to all of your support, encouragement and kindness. Thank you so much for taking this incredible journey with me, and I hope you stick around for many pages to come.

Kisses!

IT’S OFFICIALLY BEEN ONE YEAR SINCE THE START OF SUPERWHOLOCK THE COMIC: ON THE SIDE OF THE ANGELS!

Thank you everyone for your support and general awesomeness! I’ve come so far since I started this a year ago and so much of that is thanks to you!

To celebrate, let’s EXPLODE Fanwork Friday with SWL Comic shininess!! Send in gifsets of your favorite comic moments, fanart of your favorite comic pairing, fics to fill in any time gaps, posters, edits, EVERYTHING! If you can create it I want to see it!

Submit your work here or post it to your own blog with #superwholockthecomic as one of the first five tags! I’ll reblog it on Friday evening and you’ll get a teaser in your inbox for participating!

LET’S MAKE THIS THE BIGGEST CRAZIEST FANWORK FRIDAY WE’VE HAD ALL YEAR, DUCKIES!

YOUNG SHERLOCK! YOUNG MYCROFT! CASTIEL BEING UPSET! WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT???

Brand new pages of SUPERWHOLOCK THE COMIC coming on January 12, just in time for the comic’s THREE-YEAR-ANNIVERSARY!

After this update, you’ll finally know why Sherlock never became a Man of Letters like his brother. GET YOUR KIDLOCK TISSUES READY.

Also, following this update, a big change is coming to this comic–a REGULAR UPDATE SCHEDULE. The comic will now update on the first of every month, starting on March 1st. So no more angry refreshing, no more wondering if this comic is dead, no more crazy cliffhangers (okay that last one was a lie). So GET AMPED. LET’S DO THIS THING.

And for anyone wondering, “What the hell is this thing?” “Didn’t Superwholock die?” “Why won’t you let it die?” “Where can I read this monstrosity you’ve created?” Here are:

Join me in beating this horse long after it’s dead all for the sake of telling a wacky story about huge dorks arguing with each other through space and time!!!

FANWORK FRIDAY: SPREAD THE LOVE

So some of you know I was recently made very cross by a blogger who goes around telling people that their work is great but they should draw more “normal couples” instead of gay ships.

And I think, rather than sending hate to a hateful person who’s already way too far gone to reason with, I want to use this Fanwork Friday to show the full rainbow-brite spectrum of what “normal” can be.

Send me your Destiel fanart, your Jackstiel gifs, that Sally Donovan/Molly Hooper fic you’ve been tinkering with, your asexual Sherlock headcanons, your bisexual Dean metas.

This gross blogger doesn’t want you to “waste your talent” on these things, so waste ALL OF IT as a big screw-you to her. Let her hate turn into something creative and awesome and inclusive!

  1. Write fics (askbox length or full) make gifs, draw things, and generally do what you do.
  2. Submit your awesome thing here or post it to your own blog by Friday with #superwholockthecomic as one of the first five tags.
  3. Get your work featured on the blog on Friday! Teaser rewards are on hold for now until I get a little further in the story—I don’t have much left to tease without spoiling something major!

Have fun, make art, and be fabulous, my ducks!

FANWORK FRIDAY: GENDER SWAP

The theme for this week’s SuperWhoLock Fanwork Friday is Gender Swap!

What if Guns N’ Roses became Ross and Deanna instead of Rose and Dean? Or Sherlock and John were BAMF crime-solving ladies and Irene Adler was a smokin’ hot dude? Or can we just get some Captain Jackie Harkness love?

Non-binary genders are allowed too, obvi! You can also change some characters and leave others, just have fun with it and stretch your creativity!

You can use the versions of the characters that appear in the comic or just play in the general SWLverse, it’s up to you. And if you don’t dig the theme you can always send in more random askbox fics, believe me, I don’t mind! So:

  1. Write fics, make gifs, draw things, and generally do what you do.
  2. Submit your awesome thing here or post it to your own blog by Friday with #superwholockthecomic as one of the first five tags.
  3. Get your work featured on the blog on Friday and get a teaser for the comic in your inbox as a reward!

People who submitted last week got a glimpse at what’s going on with Sherlock. Who knows what you could find out this week?

Make art, have fun, and be fab! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

ANNIVERSARY FANWORK FRIDAY: IT’S BEEN TWO YEARS HOLY CRAP

Guys, SuperWhoLock the Comic will have been around for TWO WHOLE YEARS on January 12! In my opinion that means we should make a FREAKING MASSIVE Fanwork Friday on January 9 before I release new pages on January 12!

For new friends (and there are a lot of you!) Fanwork Friday is when you submit artwork, gifsets, fanfiction, basically anything you’ve made that’s creative and SuperWhoLock-related. I reblog or post it and it gets seen by all the awesome people who read this comic! It’s a great excuse to be creative and some really amazing things have come out of it over the years. You can check out previous stuff here, there’s a ton and it’s all wonderful.

The theme is this comic! Re-create your favorite moments as gifs or write a fanfic that fills in a gap in the story or draw your favorite relationship and so on. As always, you don’t have to stick to the theme, but I’d love it if you did because I’m selfish and geek out when I see people have created stuff based on the comic

How to submit:

  1. Write fics (askbox length or full) make gifs, draw things, and generally do what you do.
  2. Submit your awesome thing here or post it to your own blog by THURSDAY with #superwholockthecomic as one of the first five tags. I’ll try to reblog things submitted on Friday but that weekend is going to be a lot to deal with so by Thursday is best.
  3. Get your work featured on the blog on Friday! AND since we’ve gotten a little further in the story, people who submit will be rewarded with a teaser for Part III of the comic! (a previous teaser hinted at Craig becoming a demon so they’re legit)

I just really want to celebrate two years with you lovely people so please submit something if you have the time! Make art and be spectacular!
