Hello and welcome to the Official Website for "Midwinter"!

Created by Kayla Swain and Joanna Wong, "Midwinter" is an ongoing, original graphic novel that meshes science fiction and fantasy.

Feel free to take a look around the site to learn more!

9/21/15 Tapastic's Staff Pick?!

Hey, hey! Look who made the front page of Tapastic!!

We’re really excited to see one of the staff members liked us enough to feature our comic~

8/1/15 Patreon is up!

IT'S HERE! Have a look at our new trailer video and spread the news!

It's been a long time in the making, but we hope you enjoy it and will consider supporting us on Patreon. If we can manage to get our main artist working on it full time, we can get you content faster than ever! Please Like and Share to spread the word. It would mean the world to us!

7/30/15 Launching our comic on Tapastic!

Sorry for the lack of updates lately! We've been busy trying to produce more pages! In order to get more people acquainted with Midwinter, we've decided to create a place where you can read it for FREE!

The printed issues found every year on the convention circuit will still be ahead of the webcomic, but if you can't afford them, this is a nice alternative for you. We'll be updating with a small burst of pages on the 5th and 20th of every month! And here's some more good news: Our Patreon is launching in TWO DAYS! Keep your eyes peeled for that!


11/8/14 Nebraskon 2014 was a blast!

This past weekend at Nebkon 2014 was amazing! Thank you all who visited us at the booth. Because of you, we've sold twice as many issues as last year! We got to meet a lot of interesting people this year. (And Kayla even got to have some fun dressing up as Pendiah!)

We can't wait for Nebkon 2015, but until then--Next stop: O Comic Con!


10/13/14 Chapter 1 is ready!!

We've been working our butts off lately to get the pages of chapter 1 completed, and we're excited to say it's finally done!

You can purchase it here for $3.99!!

And once you read it, you can come discuss it with us in our new forum! We hope to foster a community and allow a people to have an open communication line to us. Just click the link on the sidebar to go to it!

Of course, we're still working on Kickstarter rewards, and now that we're a little less busy... we're really hope we can knock some of those out and get those to everyone. Thanks for your continued support!

5/14/14 Heading to Anime Central 2014

Hey, everyone! Just a small update on the changes to the site. With the Kickstarter over (and successfully funded thanks to everyone!), we've put up a donate button on the left side of the page for anyone who still wanted to help us out. In addition, we have a new subscribe button for our newsletter.

In convention news, is anyone going to Anime Central? Because we are! We're really excited to be going as it's the biggest anime con in the midwest. If you're planning on going amidst the expected 30,000 visitors (?!), here's a map of where we'll be!

3/8/14 Kickstarter is Live!


After working our butts off for months, it's finally here...

For contributing, you can get some pretty amazing goodies; make sure to grab one of those limited edition tiers while they last! All you need is an Amazon account to pledge. Hopefully that won't be too much trouble for everyone~


2/22/14 Kickstarter Video Approaching Completion!

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, but we promise we haven't forgotten Midwinter! We're currently working on Kickstarter (which we hope to start soon) and prepping for Naka-kon. If you're planning on going to Naka-kon, please make sure to stop by our table!

(P.S. Here's a screencap of the Kickstarter video~)


12/20/13 Happy Holidays!

Here's wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season~ Enjoy this image of Nox and Pendiah we created for the holidays!


11/13/13 We're Going to Naka-Kon!

Hey, everyone! Just letting you know that we got accepted into Naka-Kon 2014! It's going to be on March 14 - 16, 2014 in Overland Park, Kansas. If you're going, we hope to see you there!


11/05/13 Debut at Anime Nebraskon!

Our teaser booklet debuted at Anime Nebraskon (Omaha, NE)! This week passed us in the blink of an eye. Between getting all the last minute essentials for the convention together, going to the convention itself, and even dealing with some printing snags... it was a busy time.

But, it went amazingly. We saw friends and strangers alike that were interested in the artwork, the comic, and every combination of the two. We sold 65 copies of the comic this weekend, which honestly blew our expectations out of the water. For being our first convention, we're extremely pleased with it.

Thank you so much to EVERYONE that came out to see us and checked out our table. We're immensely grateful to everyone who stopped by, whether they bought something or not. It was an amazing experience we won't soon forget, and we're so excited to move forward and take this to other conventions.

And here is our lovely model (and main artist), Kayla, showing you the lovely teaser booklet:


09/20/13 Site Launch!

After a long wait, the site is officially live! We'll keep adding new content as we go on, but you can expect the forums and the store to be our next big updates. Once we get those up, we plan to work on a blog where you can keep up with the latest news, contests, and merchandise for Midwinter. (And maybe even a newsletter sign up!)

Feel free to send us feedback if there's something you'd like to see. And of course, if there are any problem areas, let us know!
