For three years we’ve been working to bring you a new episode of Tales from the Couch every Monday. It was a lot of fun and enriched our lives, but we can not maintain that rhythm. Factors in our non-comic life are currently requiring our attention and time, and as a result, TftC has recently felt less like a passion project and more like a stressful, very badly paid second job. We therefore decided to make some changes.
This is what the future will look like: Timo will continue to make comics for Tales from the Couch, but much more irregular and probably in a different style. There will not be a new update every Monday, the comics will appear if I think of something good and I have time to produce them. Follow Tales from the Couch on Twitter or Facebook to find out when a new comic comes out.
Caro has a lot of new, exciting projects on the horizon, you can learn more about them here, as soon as we can tell you more. Stay tuned!
We will be back at a few comic conventions this year, including the Comic Salon Erlangen (Wohow!), Where you can meet us in person and of course purchase print editions from TftC. More information regarding conventions will be posted in our social media and here on the site.
That’s it for the moment. I hope to see you again soon!
So last week we visited the MCM Hanover. In 2016 the MCM became our first con ever, and it’s nice to come back again and compare to what we have learned since: firstly, we now have a nicer, fireproof blanket for our stuff and secondly, that’s it.
Like the last time we had a lot of fun, met a bunch of cool people and also met some old friends again. Many, many thanks to all who came by! It was a great time meeting you, talking nerdy stuff and watch the cosplayers.
Also was Timo’s birthday and it was the best celebration he could have wished for
Not pictured (because timos camera phone needs thirty seconds of complete silence and a magnesium flare to produce images) but also there were: Christoph from Gucknichtso.de, Adroth from Karrakula.de, our frenemies from Nigunegu.de, and many, many more.
Last week we made the first, cautious step back into the open – at a comic con! It’s always a shock to leave your cave/apartment after a long, cold winter, but these are the things we do for comics… We’re visiting 3 cities in Germany this year. The first one was the Comic Invasion in Berlin last week, next weekend we’ll be at the MCM Comic Con Hannover and the Comic Con Germany in Stuttgart in July.
Berlin was a nice start! We made some pictures of our table, we were lucky to have a place near the stage, so we could watch or at least hear every presentation
Besides lots of Couch-Comics Timo also sold all of his own older comics that he had left. Huzzah!
We also want to make some advertising for our table buddy Joseph Nowak, who draws insanely funny cartoons on a daily basis and who contributed a lot to our entertainment. 😉 Click here to see his Instagram page
We need to pass this week – which has nothign to do with the annual Birthday Carooke Party in Berlin.
BUT! We can already announce where you might meet us this year!
If you want one of the notorious „Robby Poledancing“ scribbles, Timo’s „Business Man“ comic or our printed comic, you can find us on the following cons.
As you might have noticed we don’t post that much during the week – but that has a reason! Besides jobs, hobbies, meeting other human beings and all that crap we(which means mostly Caro, but Timo slowly descends into this madness, too) started working on a mobile game!
Escape from Innsmouth(working title which will very like change soon) is a Choose your own Adventure game. You might remember COYA books, in a time before machines took over control of our lives. It’s going to be playable in English and German for Android&iOs and I’m building it in Unity.
As you begin to play the game the story takes you to the coastal town of Innsmouth, where you are supposed to find a missing girl. Sooner or later you will realize that something’s fishy about Innsmouth (I’m really sorry, but I just had to write that).
We’re really happy that Sony joined our Alien Parasite Weeks(tm). This week they released a new trailer, so we’re just going to share it. Looking good so far, seems like a space expedition/station encounters an alien life form which has a taste for fingers and possibly more parts of the human body. The trailer doesn’t show much more than dramatically lit faces of Ryan Reynolds&Co, but it could be good.
Our Facebook followers know this already: Inktober has started!
Motivated artists ink a picture every day and share it on social media channels. This year, Timo&me were finally willing to join in! It’s only the 7th now but we’re on a good track. We’ll post a Mini-Overview in the end, until then you can see our efforts on tumble/twitter/instagram, see the links at the top right.
If some of you participate, tell us!
