[0664] Larisa’s Big Sacrifice

I plan to commission other artists to draw high-quality artwork featuring characters from Sandra and Woo for our Patreon patrons (not necessarily in a 16:10 wallpaper format).

As a first step, I’d like to ask all of our patrons for suggestions what you would like to see. You may provide as many ideas as you like and also make the descriptions as detailed as you like. In fact, I’d even prefer detailed descriptions.

  • Luna: W– what…?!
  • Jennesta: Sandra told us everything about your dire situation, Luna. So the whole class chipped in and donated all these things for your new home.
  • Benjamin: Most also didn’t find the alternative of being roasted alive by Larisa particularly compelling.
  • Sandra: … And this should cover your bills for a while.
  • Luna: Sandra, that’s…
  • Larisa: I’ve sold my flamethrower for you, Luna! My flamethrower!!
  • Larisa: I hope you’re happy now!
  • Luna: I am!
Do you like Sandra and Woo? Then spread the word with a link to our website or vote for our comic at TopWebComics: Vote for Sandra and Woo at TopWebComics!

Patreon campaign for Sandra and Woo

After all these years, the day has come where we (Novil + Powree) have to ask you to support us financially to make sure that we can continue to make our comic Sandra and Woo. Therefore we’ve decided to start a Patreon campaign for Sandra and Woo. We’ve never had any luck selling merchandising so advertising revenues are currently our only source of income from the comic. And, as you can see in the header image, those have really gone downhill during the last months. While Powree is still able to buy something to eat every day, I believe that she and I deserve a bit more than that for our hard work every month.

Patreon: Support Novil and Powree creating Sandra and Woo

You’ll also get some neat rewards in return for your monthly contribution. You can check out all available reward levels on the Patreon page and select your preferred one. To collect some of the rewards, you’ll have to create an account on this website which is already set up for that. I have also already uploaded some of the promised stuff. If you have further questions, you can find more details on our FAQ page.

Here are some of the offered rewards:

  • All ads disabled. (Bronze level)
  • See new comic strips early. (Silver level)
  • Download archives of all comics, drafts and other artwork. (Gold level)
  • Comic strips in their original size. (Diamond level)

There are also milestones for the total pledge amount. You can see them in the left sidebar of the Patreon page. If the first three milestones are reached, we’ll commit ourselves to publish a certain number of strips for a certain time period. You can pledge more than the amount given for the highest reward level to make sure that the next milestone is reached.

By the way, our new diamond patrons will immediately be able to suggest a name for a female co-worker of Sandra’s dad Richard who has a good chance to become a semi-regular character like Landon.


Interview with our reader Satsuoni

Here is a new interview about Sandra and Woo with one of the Sandra and Woo fans that received a poster package, our reader

Satsuoni

Can you please introduce yourself to our readers?

> Hi! I am Seva, aka Satsuoni, a Russian living in Japan. I like webcomics and manga, prefering them over US-style comic books, mainly because of consistency ;)

When you read Sandra and Woo for the first time, what grabbed your attention the most?

> Hmm, that was a long time ago… Drawing style, I guess? It was (and is) very nice. That, and talking raccoon :)

Is the thing you mentioned above still your favorite part of the comic, or do you like something else the most now?

> I am not very good at grading “like” :) There are some things that I enjoyed more, such as some strips with fresh-eating squirrel. I still enjoy the drawing style. I don’t have fixed “favorite parts” :>

Who is your favorite character and why?

> Depending on the mood:
– Good mood: Larisa, beacuse of her attitude (especially towards fire), which I can only aspire to!
– Normal mood: Umm… Sandra, because she is cute? I guess.
– Bad mood: Woo, for his approach to troubles.

Do you have a favorite story arc and/or a favorite single strip?

> Nothing that springs to mind right now. Maybe the hunter one? I do prefer arcs to individual strips.

You have read Sandra and Woo for many years now. Do you think the comic has changed in any way since the beginning?

> Not in any way that I noticed, which, for me, is a good thing. I dislike noticeable changes, since at best they change the thing I like into the thing I like, and at worst, make thing worse. The art is somewhat more refined if you compare the strips from different years, I guess.

Sandra and Woo is sometimes criticized for lacking focus. Is there an aspect of the comic that you’d rather get rid of?

> Get rid of? Time between updates :)

Is there a topic you’d like to see getting addressed in a longer story arc?

> Larisa/Woo relationship? Not sure.

What are your wishes for the future of Sandra and Woo?

> Let it last till I drop :D

Is there any other webcomic which you’d like to recommend to our readers?

> Well… The usual: Schlock Mercenary, Twokinds, El Goonish Shive

Do you have anything else do say? Here’s room for it:

> Already said too much <_<


Interview with our reader Greenwood Goat

Here is a new interview about Sandra and Woo with one of the Sandra and Woo fans that received a poster package, our reader

Greenwood Goat

Can you please introduce yourself to our readers?

> Hi, I’m the Greenwood Goat, and I live in Southeastern England, mingling effortlessly with the many other creatures who also live here.

When you read Sandra and Woo for the first time, what grabbed your attention the most?

> Hang on… that was back in February 2009… The overwhelming cuteness and clever gags.

Is the thing you mentioned above still your favorite part of the comic, or do you like something else the most now?

> Yes, really. The characterizations are still cute and the gags are still clever. However, I do also think the comment system is a good one, and the strips often inspire me to have fun using it. As you’ve probably noticed. >:=)>

Who is your favorite character and why?

> I don’t think I can name anyone at present. I think Larisa is spying on me, and she’ll only use my answer to cause trouble in-story.

Do you have a favorite story arc and/or a favorite single strip?

> Same answer. Perhaps I’m just being overcautious, but she is a decidedly tricky little Miss. >:=/>

You have read Sandra and Woo for many years now. Do you think the comic has changed in any way since the beginning?

> The art style has evolved, as is inevitable. The characters seem to have advanced in age a little. Et cetera. It’s all good!

Sandra and Woo is sometimes criticized for lacking focus. Is there an aspect of the comic that you’d rather get rid of?

> No. … Well, maybe stay away from static footage of sauce bottles… >:=)>

Is there a topic you’d like to see getting addressed in a longer story arc?

> Sandra et al getting transformed into various animals or acquiring animal features, possibly in a dream sequence, or possibly through the powers of the animal deities. Hang on, is that the sort of “topic” you were thinking of? If not… how about the plight of the wolves?

Wolf: Please! Save us from this crazy pine squirrel!! *whimper* It’s not fair!

What are your wishes for the future of Sandra and Woo?

> That it extend as far as it can!

Is there any other webcomic which you’d like to recommend to our readers?

> Good question… and one day I’ll get around to doing a list which I can post when it comes up. However, here is a webcomic that doesn’t usually get promoted outside deviantART, where it resides, but unlike the majority of such comics is frequently updated and has an archive of over a thousand pages (yep, full pages, folks). It is Addictive Science by Johann “Cervelet” Karpp, which starts in the sub-gallery that I’ve linked to, and continues in Cervelet’s main gallery (start at the oldest page and work back). Consisting of self-contained shorts with ongoing continuity, it centers around Celia (a mad scientist who specializes in wholesale transformation) and Lukas (her stoical artist roommate and main test subject). No schedule, but updates frequently. Rated U.

Oh, and Kaspall by Lucy Lyall, which may in fact be moving toward a conclusion now… an atmospheric and intricately-written supernatural mystery thriller, taking place in the eponymous domain of Kaspall, where magic and accidental travelers between worlds are all part of life. Lots of humor, though, and not of the pun/gag variety. Full page format, black and white line/hatch, rated PG-13 occasional cursing/conflict/blood/minor horror), read it carefully… and at least twice.

Do you have anything else do say? Here’s room for it:

> As I said in my reply to Oliver’s first email, I am blown away by his generous response to what basically amounts to me showing off and having fun in the comments section here, and will carry on doing more of the same! >:=)>
