Coming through, coming through, hot news on a hot plate. Oh no! I've spilled all of the hot news all over my rippling muscles and now I have several third degree burns! Ow!
In case you haven't noticed, the comic has begun regular updates once again! It was a content barren summer because I took a very long and much needed break away from everything. There were many reasons for this, but I'm feeling much better and refreshed now. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Vast Error has always been more of a fall comic.
Alongside that, there's a few other announcements to make:
SHOP@DCRC is now LIVE! Our starting lineup consists of six products - one downloadable and five physical pre-order items - with new waves of merchandise planned to come in the future.
These items will be available for pre-order for the next 2 weeks — up until November 1st, 2021. While we will continue to accept orders past then, we are aiming to have all orders placed by that date fulfilled in time for Yulepa — uh, I mean — the holidays.
The Redbubble store will remain open for now, though all of the illustrations will become a part of the DCRC Shop as prints after this first wave. We're also looking into options to eventually create apparel and other items!
The latest solo album from the VEMT, "Empyreal Rhapsody" by Kal-la-kal-la, has been released! There's thirteen genre-crossing tracks here, all centered around the various lands that occupy Metatron's Cube within the Incipisphere.
It's absolutely one of the most interesting and unique listens in the discography, give it a spin.
Lastly, SNOWBOUND BLOOD VOL. 11: OF FUN AND PROFIT will finally be dropping on October 22nd. Bar none, this volume has the most snowbuck for your boundblood, and is nearly as long as a real ass novel.
It's taken a lot of time to put together, so we all hope you'll enjoy the climax of Secily's operation at last.
Be sure to keep eyes on our Twitter for more specific updates and release announcements!
The year of Vast Error continues.

HAPPY 3/22 AND HAPPY 10TH ANNIVERSARY!
Well, a day late.
There was so much going on yesterday that it was hard to go out of the way just to make another full post about it on here! But hey, 3/23 has all of the numbers necessary to continue talking about the subject and still be reasonable!
So here's a recap:
UPDATE- Yesterday's update featured the unfinished play manuscript written by Sova come to life on an imaginary stage, with its intended cast playing their parts. This update was conceived, outlined, designed and finalized by myself and Heather. Though the script was actually written by Agonist, and it wouldn't have been the same without her chops.
The foley used in the intro was done by SplitSuns and the animation was done by Kohilaice. Sketches, lines and colors for panels were headed by Charlie, Ciro, Eddie, Heather and Donut while Xam handled all of the clean up and texture additions.
Next update we'll be back in The Game, but don't worry, we haven't seen the end of "Upon The Twelfth Hour" just yet.
SBB VOL. 11 TEASER- As once stated before, Vol. 11 is going to be the biggest volume of Snowbound Blood there is. There's still a heavy amount of development required for it, but hopefully this trailer we released sufficiently explains that the stakes for Secily and company are quite high.
REMINDERS OF YOU- Last October, we announced a solo album by our patron saint of punk: votl. It was supposed to come out on Halloween, and that didn't work out. Then it was supposed to come out on 3/22! That also didn't work out. But instead of just announcing another delay for the big day, we decided to do something a little special instead.
There's a whole EP with five select tracks from the album in their current state out now on our Bandcamp! Think of it as a nice sample of what's to come.
PRINTS- We have some new prints in the works! Redbubble has been a little fickle about it, so they currently aren't able to be sold. We're working on getting that sorted, but for now you can look at this nice convict lineup piece done by Xam.
WALLPAPERS- For the first time in over two years, we have four new, comfy, specialty wallpapers to celebrate the comic's 10th anniversary! All of which are done by fans, and all of whom you should support!
From top to bottom: fireisstuck25, notedchampagne, conjunx, endurae and VastAlien.
You can find all of them on the sites newly refurbished Bonus Content section!
RERUNS- A new anthology series entitled "Reruns" will be coming to Deconreconstruction. We're looking to tentatively begin releasing comics in late 2021. You can read more about it here.
WARTORN TRAILS- Early pre-production has been started on the sequel to Snowbound Blood, entitled WARTORN TRAILS. You can read more about it here.
We hope you found the 10th anniversary just as special to you as it was to us! And of course, new updates coming soon!

‘Corporate Holiday Hits’ is now up on Bandcamp!
We missed the holidays last year because we were so busy... so we're making up to you all with ten new festive tracks from the VEMT!
Merry Christmas and Happy Yulepassing! Oh, and also it's Taz's wriggling day. That too!

The return of the progress bar! Bask in all that it represents. Also don't worry too much if it seems a little... different.
We're looking at give or take a bit over a month long turnaround on this animation, but as any fan will tell you, our estimates are always extremely liberal. It's going to be another whole team affair, guest artists included. It's not super long, but it is very dense and dynamic. For a majority of its runtime, there will be action happening literally every two seconds.
Speaking of artists, please welcome Charlie, Ciro and Olschu to our head art team! As of this update they are all helping Xam with panel production. They've all worked on VE projects in the past including other animations, Snowbound Blood, album art and wallpapers as well.
While we're here, I'd like to talk just a little about the direction the comic will be taking after this animation is released:
Originally there was planned to be ~50 more pages to I2S2, but that has now been changed. Instead we will have one more standard update to round out this Intermission, and after a break for planning and production, we will be jumping right into Act 3 Act 1. A3A1 has a very strong main cast focus, with a side focus on everything else that's been built up in some way affecting them and their session. Those scenes originally planned to go after this animation will be placed here instead, as they better demonstrate this facet of VE's story.
Also, this will be the final update viewable on MSPFA. To reiterate what's going to happen when the animation is ready, it will ONLY be available on Deconreconstruction, along with any new VE updates and extended content. The comic will then end after EOA1, and it will redirect the reader here to continue. Think of it like a trial version, for anyone who so happens to stumble upon our old stomping grounds.
With that in mind, please look forward to the animation! I promise the waiting will make you feel all the more happier when it's released. :)

Following its announcement in the news post last month, we've officially rolled out the promised changes to Deconreconstruction.com. Our new backend and API are functionally complete and integrated with our current frontend, which means we are fully divorced from MSPFA and are able to stop mirroring the comic there in the near future. We have a pretty specific point in the comic that we're looking to do that.
If you're reading this from MSPFA, we suggest checking out our (not-so-)new home website — it will soon be the only place you can read Vast Error past Act 1. As of the release of Thaumatrope last month, Deconreconstruction.com is the base of operations for anything and everything in the Vast Error Media Universe. The VEMU, if you will. There's probably a better name for that.
