Sorry about that, everyone, I meant to have this blog post ready to coincide with the comic going up, but I ran into some internet problems. And then, kinda…fell asleep.
But no point in burying the lead any longer; Comic Critics is indeed going on hiatus. Right now we’re thinking something like a year, but it’s a “loose” year. Maybe a little less, maybe a little more, sorta depends how it goes.
You’ve no doubt noticed the comic has been updated less frequently in recent months. Just a result of real life getting in the way for both of us. And squeezing in the time to publish the twice-a-month we’ve been managing has sorta reduced the whole thing to a grind, leading to a bit of burnout. Long story short, it was tough to carve out time for the comic even when it was brand-new and we were super into it, and it’s just become that much tougher 5 years later. So we’re taking a step back, letting the creative batteries recharge a little, working on things with less of a time crunch in the meantime. The CC site will stay up for the archive, and we’ll also update the blog with any projects we find ourselves taking on. One of which may very well be a Comic Critics OGN we’ve been toying with for a while. (And feel free to yak at us on Twitter at either @ComicCritics or @SeanWhitmore…they’re kinda like the web comic, but with less text and no pictures)
For now, we just want to thank you all for reading, those of you who’ve been here from the beginning and those of you who discovered us somewhere along the way. And even those of you who didn’t discover us until after reading this! You’ve made everything worth it, because Brandon lives to entertain, and my soul is actually a black hole that feeds on adulation the way that Galactus feeds on worlds. Where even is Galactus, anyway? I haven’t seen him since…ah, never mind, I’m going off on a tangent.
One way or another, Comic Critics will be back, so we’ll see you then!
