Hi folks, Braden here.
Prompted by our mention in a Robot 6 article, I just wanted to give you some account of what’s up with the comic.
We fell prey to some of the pitfalls many webcomics do. Mostly, it was hard to make money on an ongoing adventure webcomic, and therefore hard to justify spending so much time producing it.
As for me, I’m back in school, studying illustration, hoping to make a career out of making funnybooks. I’ve been working a little with BOOM! Kids in my spare time – I colored Muppet Snow White and the last 3 issues of Muppet Sherlock Holmes, which were all great fun. I’m also coloring my friend Zack Giallongo’s upcoming graphic novel, Broxo, for First Second books.
After I wrap up that and graduate this summer, we’d love to get back into producing Kitty Hawk, though probably in a slightly different format, and likely with a “relaunch”, giving us time to work up a really great story. So, Kitty Hawk hasn’t crashed, it’s just up in the air.
So to speak.
(Tacking on: I think 2010 was, at least for me, a categorically bad year — although the unemployment numbers seem to back me up on this. I’mma call it a late yakudoshi [although 25 wasn't great either... maybe I had 42 early? That'd be nice]. We have been doing some brainstorming, however, and I have hopes for 2011. When we come back, I want to come back so strong 2010 sends me a written apology.
Yours parenthetically, -V.)

Hi folks. Braden here. Just wanted to give you a little update on where we’re at.
There are some really cool things in store for our heroes, as you can probably tell from the cover and the last page, and we’re excited to bring it to you. We want to give you the remainder of this chapter on a regular schedule, but right now life is getting in the way of doing a webcomic. I’m going to school full-time at AIB, and Vin is without reliable internet.
You can expect color versions of the already published pages in the coming months (which should reveal an interesting detail), and we’ll see what we can put together for you in January. Stay tuned!
Hearts and bolts,

Hi, guys! Sorry for the lack of updates, Braden is starting school and I’m internetless and having day job craziness. We’re having a brief interruption of service while B. gets his class rhythm sorted out, will have more info ASAP.

Hey, guys! Just checking in again, this time from the office, after hours. Lack of reliable home internet is putting a serious dent in my website-related productivity, but happily Braden got to be in charge of the art auction for your bidding pleasure. It is, as noted, our first, but hopefully not our last. If bidding or commenting is fierce enough, we’ll consider offering up some more pages right away–supply, demand, yadda yadda.
Also, we’re working on some changes to our feedback and discussion mechanics, so watch for those soon. They are very exciting for people who, like myself, have very low standards for excitement.
Hope this finds you all well,
