When does this comic update?
Wednesdays and Saturdays, at the moment.

Your Archives page is missing the latest pages!
I have to update it manually, so I try to do it every few weeks or so.

What do you use to make the comic?
Bristol board, ink and brushes, Pigma Sensei pen, scanner, tablet, Deleter Comicworks for screentones and most sfx, and Adobe Photoshop CS2 for lettering.

What kind of tablet do you use?
A 12″ Wacom Cintiq, which is way overkill, but it does make things easier. I’ve previously used a Wacom Intuos 4, medium-size and a Wacom Graphire 3, which worked just as well for the purposes of this comic.

Is Prophecy Failed your job/primary source of income/do you make a profit off of it?
No to all three! I work 40 hours a week doing something entirely unrelated to art/comics. PF is a hobby. A very involved hobby.

How can I support this comic?
If you want to support it monetarily, the best way is to buy a volume in print. If you’re broke, that’s okay! Tell your friends about PF, tell the internet, shove it in their faces, spam it everywhere. Word of mouth is a powerful thing.

Do you attend conventions?
I try to keep the sidebar relatively current, so that’s where you’ll find info on any conventions I’m attending.

Can I critique your comic?
If it’s a particular panel that’s a little off, don’t worry about it, unless it’s pretty freaking bad. If I’m doing something consistently poorly, though, feel free to point it out (and suggesting some way to fix it would be nice).

Is Prophecy Failed an allegory for something?
While there are some superficial similarities between the setting of PF and some places in the real world, Aelmidde is Aelmidde, and not some real place in disguise. The events happen for the sake of the plot, not so I can make a point. I like to think you can take away a few messages about life/people/whatever in general, but I don’t have an actual agenda behind the events besides plot and character development.

Is this a Christian/religious comic?
UHHHHHH no. Honestly, it never crossed my mind that the title could be construed this way, until someone actually asked me.

Is this a parody comic?
It’s actually pretty hard to write a decent parody in long form without it either becoming stale or a parody of itself! So other than being one very, very extended jab at a stock fantasy trope, no, PF is not a parody.

Is any character based on a real person?
One or two characters are based on someone else, but only on a visual level (and even then, it’s kind of a stretch), and some characters intentionally (but pretty arbitrarily) share a name with another person (real or fictional). Personality-wise, though, no, the characters’ personalities are governed solely by factors pertaining to the comic.

I ship characters A and B!
Haha, you can ship whoever the heck you want. I don’t plan on having any canon pairings at the moment, but you can pretend, if you want!

I hate Character C!
I personally think one should never feel obligated to like a particular character, though I can’t think of a single PF character I personally dislike.

Your last name is a mouthful.
“McC-B” is the Sara-approved abbreviation of my surname.

How do you get good at art/I wish I had talent/etc.
Practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice practice it’s not talent it’s never talent
