*ChronicleChamber began life in 2006 as a humble discussions forum. It wasn’t long after that it was grown into a fully fledged website quickly becoming the on-line resource for all your Phantom needs. It was the first fan-run website to interview creators from all major Phantom publishers and in 2013 debuted X-Band, the world’s first and thus far only Phantom dedicated podcast.

If you are about supporting lovely ladies, Aussie comics, AND kickstarter campaigns (which I KNOW you are!) then do we have a pod for you!! Had a fun chat to Aussie web-comic illustrator, Jana Hoffmann, & writer, Jess Cate about creating and playing in their very own comic book universe ‘Heart of Millyera’!!

Jana & Jess at Free Comic Book Day 2017

*** Heart of Millyera is the first webcomic by Jess Cate and Jana Hoffmann. The story began in 2014, when Jana and Jess were discussing their mutual love for mystical sea-beasties. Millyera was born out of a fascination with the mysterious universe that dwells in the deepest oceans. The world of The Colonies sprung up out of our desire to create a comic with a setting that is both steam-punk, and yet proudly Australian. Milly and her friends are a team of adventurous, misfit geniuses, who we hope will win your hearts.

Heart of Millyera is an epic undertaking, which will carry you out of the depths of the ocean, across deserts, through the dusty streets of bustling towns, across the seas on trade ships, and out into the recesses of space. I am not sure that we can squeeze any more adventure in, but we will sure as hell try! Check out page 1 below, and make sure to head over to the website for more Heart of Millyera***

*many apologies for the technical difficulties (which you will hear a ding ding noise where it has been cut together and the robot voices taken out!) still learning about the audio over here!! Many thanks to the ladies for sticking with me while I figured it all out!! ~ABx
