Thursday Arktoons

ASCENDANT: Episode 2, Transfiguration

ALT★HERO: Q: Episode 2, Reassignment

A THRONE OF BONES: Episode 2, Our True Vocation

FLYING SPARKS: Episode 2, Secret Lives

CHUCK DIXON PRESENTS: ADVENTURE: The Frogmen: Episode 2, Dangerous Discoveries 

The dev team is also pleased to announce that the image processing time has been decreased by a factor of around 10x. If you were on mobile or a slow connection, you may have noticed that the images will pop up much faster now even though they are still high-resolution.

This is a result of switching the image display from PNG to a newer and more efficient file format that is supported by most, though not all, modern browsers. The Arktoons engine is now smart enough to determine whether your browser supports it or not, and if not, dials up either a PNG or a JPG that it can support. So, the problem some people were seeing on the first day, where no images appear in the episodes, should be resolved.

Throne of Bones is great in comic version. I've noticed that the "like" feature is present at both beginning and ending of a chapter, and you can click both, resulting in two likes. I thought that the one at the beginning was a like for the series itself, but it seems not.

Great job, team Arktoons!

Kudos to the dev team!

I'm really looking forward to seeing the artwork of the first battle in ToB. I just started listening to the audiobook on UATV, and it's getting me really pumped for the comic. Great book, great job adapting it to different formats.

It's been a lot of fun getting to work on Chuck's Adventure Classics! Very rewarding to see them so well received.

The “no image” problem has definitely been resolved. Site looks great, looking forward to the stories.

In case it's helpful, still getting missing images with Firefox, 78.3.1esr (64-bit).

I gotta use my self control to let a few weeks go by before I indulge.

Very nice! I have a slow connection, and the difference is startling.

You guys are doing an awesome job on those.

I showed arktoons to a semi-normie fren. He's already looking for content suitable for daughters. So I'll see what happens.

The world needs more all ages content but I'm not the one to be making it.

Click on the Superhero genre.

Think Ascendant might be my favourite of the Thursday lineup (though I've read AH:Q before). Nice to see American Eagle introduced this issue too (think explicitly Christian superman from Nebraska, oh and he's a white married father too, because the salt must flow). Wondering if Macris has given up on trying to avoid the cancel culture types & go full unauthorised ^^ .
