We’re Back. But What Does That Mean?

As you can hopefully tell by the brand new image above, we’re back. Picking up literally where we left off at the end of Chapter 10. It’s been the better part of 8 months away, and even if we account for November and December being taken up by stressful Holiday shenanigans, that’s still a 6 month break. So what have we been doing for the past 6 months?

Well, the short answer is “Stuff.”

The long answer is, I can’t speak for Jimmy, but I think we needed this break to just hang out, be buds, and not worry about the comic for a little while. We love making it, but first and foremost, it’s a hobby for us. We needed some time to just be friends, and find that balance again. We’ve played a lot of Overwatch, since going on hiatus. We sat down and played all of Metal Gear Solid 4 in  single night, and just generally had brotimes. It’s been good.

But we have worked on the story. Where we want it to go, and how we can refocus it, and we hope that you’ll see that refocusing in the coming weeks and months. I’ve also been working on merchandise, all available at intheyearoftherabbit.threadless.com We’ve got t-shirts, a long-sleeve Bunny shirt (your arms are the ears!) that I love, and an assortment of phone cases. Designs will be constantly evolving, and you can expect to see more stuff about that in the future and on Instagram.

Speaking of, on the Social Media front, we’ve pretty much abandoned Twitter. It’s just kind of a dumpster fire that neither Jimmy nor I want to deal with. I’ll be posting weekly updates on the Instagram and Facebook feeds, so if you want to see what we’re doing, that’s where to go. I’ll also be using the Instagram account as more of an art account. So you’ll see everything I’ve been working on, most of which will still be stuff for the comic but with other stuff sprinkled in there too.

It feels good to be back. I’ll be 30 tomorrow, so this is like a little early birthday gift to myself. I hope you guys like it.

Thanks for everything,

We’re Not Dead.

*blows away dust and cobwebs*

*cough* Hey everyone.

Just wanted to write up a quick update letting you know that we’re not dead. The comic isn’t cancelled. we’re not quitting. Jimmy’s been working on scripts and I’ve been working on pages. We just want to get as far ahead as we can so that, even if Life..uh…[gets in the] way, we don’t wind up needing to take a hiatus like this again for awhile.

We’ve got 4 pages in the pipeline right now, for two different chapters, (one of which will be completely written and drawn by me…so that’s new,) and we’re working on creating and keeping to a timeline of events. We felt like we were getting into a bit of a “Kazuo goes to a village, gets attacked/finds bad guys/gets into fight” rut, and we wanted to get out. We really want to get into the meat of the story. We’ve had a back story, and some other ideas that we’ve been kicking around for a few years, and we think it’s time we got into them. 
There will always be fights, and bad guys, but we also want to get into some of the Why’s, and we hope you’ll enjoy them.

Thanks for sticking with us. Tell your friends.
