Frequently Asked Questions
Why buy anything if the comic is for free on the site?
Well, aside from supporting Great y Comics and allowing us to expand in the future, the site only contains the pages of the comic, whereas physical books can be purchased from Amazon, and all sorts of goodies from posters to short stories are available on out patreon page. Also, completed chapters of the comic will be uploaded to Patreon before they are fully available on the site. We do this so everyone can enjoy our work, but those who pay get more access and lore for the Comic series.
you upload/ update?
From November 2021, we aim to update the SnakeByte comic series every Monday – and in 2022, the Yo-Ri-Oh comic series (formerly the Avaricious short stories) will be uploaded every Friday.
What projects are being worked on?
Currently, only the SnakeByte Comic series, and recently the Yo-Ri-Oh series are being worked on. As for Shallow Yarr, currently there are no plans to continue the project.
Where is Avaricious?
Avaricious was our short story series that took place in the modern SnakeByte universe. However, due to general disinterest, it has been redesigned to be a comic series, which will be uploaded to the site in 2022. It makes sense, after all we’re a comic book company that is seriously lacking in actual comic series under our belt, so I thought this would be a good move.
We used to have both a Facebook and an Instagram page, but these were deleted in October 2021 (just before the November update) as I don’t agree with the practises of the sites. To be honest I don’t like the whole scene associated with them generally, never mind all the “behind the scenes” stuff. It’s a whole different culture that simply doesn’t appeal to me anymore. I used to use them for business, but I’m sticking to just twitter as (even though it could be arguable as bad as the others) it is a good tool for reaching broader audiences.
Who is (blank)? What happened to (blank)/ Why is (blank)?
The comic focuses solely on Vipersnake and Kyrsten’s respective adventures, though if you want the broader picture, or just want to see more of the other “background characters” and other side stories, there is only one place. Novels. Everything you could ever hope to have explained, is all in the accompanying novels for each of the SnakeByte Comic chapters. You can buy the paper editions from Amazon, or get chapter specific short stories on our Patreon.
How do I properly pronounce these names?
Chances are, you can already, but if you want to be exactly sure - in all Graphic Novels will be a bonus "Pronunciation guide".
What is the tier system?
In SnakeByte, the fighters are ranked by a 5 tier system: with 5 being the lower ranks, and 1 being the best of the best. In each of the tiers fighters are ranked "E" to "A" - with A being highest. So a fighter in tier 4 with a rank of "C" would be a better class of fighter than a tier 5 with a rank of "A". This ranking system is just to provide an idea of how powerful/dangerous a certain warrior is compared to each other.
Why does X look different now?
From Chapter 11 onwards, a load of different SnakeByte characters have some redesigns based on the fact that I got better at drawing. There’s no in-comic reason for this, if we all could just pretend they always looked this way, that’d be great.
A couple of mistakes that are unfortunately now forever encased in stone, as they are part of the printed version of Book 1 (both the comic and novel).
- The printed Graphic Novel can have the edges of content cut off. This is because I had it all set up for A4 and Graphic Novels are printed in American Letter, so any mistakes are due to the cutoff size. That being said, every page is now set to American letter.
- Page 10. I cannot believe that slipped through the cracks. Unforgivable colouring mistake, but fixed for the site and collection.
- A Cape with sleeves is a Jacket. I’m aware of this, it’s just I was trying to explain that Kyrsten’s cape isn’t a jacket she could just take off – its attached to the back of her dress.
- 969? The SnakeByte Story set in the past picks up in the year 967 not 969. Just an typo in Book 1.
