A letter from Rossie - Temporary Pause to Subscriptions

Dear Dekko Fans,

You may have noticed that we haven't had any updates about upcoming releases of new issues. This is because we have experienced some issues which have slowed down our production efforts and have seen multiple issues have their release dates pushed back.

Dekko Comics is an independently run company and this means that while our team is full of passionate and hard working people it is not always able to deal with the size of the demand that services like our monthly subscriptions require.

We want to use our team as fully as we can to allow us to expand the company and successfully scale up the work that we're already doing and this has not proven possible while focusing on creating a new comic every month.

With this in mind, we have taken the very difficult decision to temporarily pause our monthly subscriptions once Issue 12 has been released in January.

We fully intend to restart the service later in 2019 but we don't currently have a fixed idea of when that will be. In the meantime, we want to focus on selling the 12 currently available comics while also working on expanding our business. We also hope to increase the numbers of workshops and commissioned projects that we do.

We apologise for any inconveniences this may have caused as we know some people were hoping to purchase subscriptions for friends and family. We have already contacted our current subscribers to let them know about our decision.

While not an easy decision we feel it is the best way to move forward both for us and our customers and we're excited about the developments that will now be possible and will have more updates on these in the New Year.

This does not mean our other comics will not be available. In January we will have a fully stocked online shop, as well as new variations on our very popular catch-up sets, so keep an eye out for those. 

Thank you all of you for your continued support, it means so much to us and we wouldn't be where we are without your enthusiasm and willingness to share what we're doing with others. Our potential growth is made possible by word of mouth so please continue to spread our work with those you know. You guys are great!

We will back with a re-vamped monthly subscription service as soon as possible.

Kindest Regards,

Rossie Stone

It's a-LIVE!!!

Yes, for those of you not aware we have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the money to get our app - Dekko Reader - into development.

There’s lots of really great information over on the page so follow the link and please like, comment, share and (if you can) donate to the cause.

Everything that we’ve achieved so far has only been possible with your support so we hope you’ll join us now in this exciting new adventure!

If you live in the North of Glasgow and get the ngHomes News you might have seen a reference to the work that we've been doing with their Green Champions group which is a group actively interested in trying to challenge the perception of Climate Change and whose work is inspiring and actively engaging in equal measure.

We're delighted to be showing off the comic that we've created based entirely on the ideas of their members at the launch event on the 10th of September at 4:30pm in Keppoch Campus and Rossie will be there to talk about not only the comic created but the continued progress that we're intending to make in the coming year.

 

Summer Update!

Summer is here and with it comes exciting updates about the soon to be released Issue 8!
This update focuses only on Issue 8 with a cover reveal, a new character and a bit of information about when it will be with our subscribers.
Another issue without our orange colour and keeping the sporty themes that were apparent in Issue 7. Thanks to Reynaldo Leon for our cover, you should check out his twitter page.

Issue 08_018 (3).jpg

Last month we introduced Miriam the Friendly Nightmare. This month we're happy to introduce Agent Ang - a kid who acts like James Bond and is the sixth of the Dekko kids. We look forward to his adventures and how he gets on with the kids - we're sure they'll get into all sorts of trouble and I hope you're excited to read about it.

Here are just a few snippets to whet your appetite for the soon to be released Issue 8. As it's now Summer our team are taking a bit of a break which means that Issue 8 will be released later in the month. Don't worry though - Issue 9 will be released the same time as all of the others so to make up for this delay the gap between 8 and 9 will be much shorter.

We're hoping to be doing a lot this Summer and we look forward to keeping you updated on all of it as it's happening.
