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.)
