It's here! The third issue of "Corinne Morgan, Corbie", The Long Way Back Home, is now available for download and online reading. This one has been a huge undertaking but the end result is (IMHO) the biggest and best issue of CMC so far. I hope you'll enjoy the first Corbiefest of 2019! readcmc.com/comics/

Hi! I'm John Porter. INFJ, enneagram 4, Transformers collector, Xennial. I'm starting an ongoing superhero webcomic for introverts and HSPs called "Corinne Morgan, Corbie". My plan for this account is to share some insights into what I've learned so far.

The tenth preview from our cast poster project. This time it's of The I.C.'s own Ruby Wood!

I have four more teasers remaining for our cast poster before I reveal the full piece. This time it's Maxine Glass, ruthless ringleader of The I.C.!

The Corbie cast poster project is now finished and available as a hi-res download for Ko-Fi donors (and will soon be available for purchase on Teespring!) Here's another of the characters from this big ensemble piece, the villanous goat goddess, Neamhain!

Headmistress Cravin is the seventh character in the Corbie cast poster series. I still have one more to work on before the poster is complete (Corbie herself) so I'll be doing a special evening stream Saturday night at 2000 BST to finish this project, for real this time!

Here's my of Phos from based on part of the opening sequence of the . It's from early 2018. I was still figuring out how shading worked (I'm STILL figuring out how shading works), but I'm very proud of the face and especially the "hair", which is made of a number of layers. It's got a very cool translucent look. I thought I'd shared it on this account already, but I guess not!

Sadie Byrd as she appears on the Corbie cast poster. On tomorrow's Club Corbie we'll be wrapping this project up as we edit and colour the art for Morrigan and Corbie herself.

Spotlighting another character from the Corbie cast poster I'm working on, this time it's Josie Steele from The I.C.! Three more to go (Ruby, Morrigan, and then the star of the show, Corbie herself)!

Not just the work involved in making the damn page, but the marketing and social media and running a website/merch shops and Kickstarter and Patreon and all 89 other jobs they need to do on top of that I just

I don't get real upset about much but whenever there's even the hint of a suggestion that webcomic creators don't bust their ass every single week putting up new pages I wanna roll up my sleeves

Macha from the cast poster that I'm very gradually working on during our daily livestreams. This project has been a real exercise in using expressions to reflect the personalities of the characters, and also in trying to make everyone visually distinct while working within the Corbie house style.

Another small portion of the cast poster we're making on this week's Club Corbie livestreams. This time it's Corinne's father, Carlton Morgan!

Another sneak peek at one of the characters appearing on the cast poster I'm colouring on our Club Corbie livestreams. This time it's Corinne's grandmother and former keeper of the Mystical Sphere of the Badb, Jennifer Morgan!

Experimenting with a more streamlined art style done entirely on Clip Studio Paint on my Surface Pro that would be a lot less fiddly and time consuming than my traditional processes. Let me know if you'd be up for seeing more art like this, perhaps in a series of daily comic strips in the future (and also if you're Team Hiii like Corinne or Team BRUH like Sadie)

Agh! The version of this art posted earlier had a weird transparency error on Corinne's face. Apologies, here's a corrected revision.

Shout-out to the long-time mutual on IG who after my most recent art post immediately unfollowed me. Ouch.

"The Corinne Morgan, Corbie Instagram account is posting pictures of Corinne Morgan again and I have HAD IT."

WIP pencil art for a panel from our ongoing Corbie mini-project. This will be inked and lettered on next week's streams (twitch.tv/johnportercmc)

Doing something a little different on this weekend - live playthroughs of both DuckTales games! Drop by at 10:00 BST Saturday to see me play the original classic, and then again at the same time on Sunday for the 1993 sequel!

Live on Twitch again this afternoon from 1400-1600 BST. On Monday's stream I was inking an upcoming page from the forthcoming daily Corbie comic strip that will recap the story so far for new readers. There's still work to do though, so on today's stream we'll try and get that page finished! If you'd like to see my process for inking comic art, please drop by and feel free to say hello!

I'll be on Twitch again today from 1400 - 1600 BST for a comic pencilling session! Trying to get five pages of art completed by the end of the week, which I think is just about doable. Will I make it? Tune in to see how it's going!

Live on Twitch in about an hour (at 1400 BST) for the Wednesday edition of Club Corbie. On today's stream I'll be lettering the art from the Monday/Tuesday shows in Clip Studio Paint (and if we have time we might work on the pencils for the next page too!)
