05.24Weird Adventures in…?
As I just posted over at http://www.weirdadventures.com, I’m officially taking a break from the comic. It hasn’t been updating in a while, but I’m finally letting people know that instead of making them wait. Here’s the text of the comic I posted over there:
Hi there. I’m Brandon J. Carr, artist and writer for Weird Adventures in Unemployment. The strip hasn’t updated in a couple of months and I should have been more communicative about exactly why.
As regular readers know, I was sick and then my computer went kablooie. Then a couple trips out of town without the ability to update pushed things even further behind. However, this whole situation has painted me as more of a slacker than I really am.
For most of this break, I’ve been waiting for some things to be sorted out behind the scenes. Business stuff, not personal stuff this time. Without getting into details, what I’ve been waiting for hasn’t been sorted. And until things are taken care of, I’m making the business decision to suspend my work here.
It sucks because I love Weird Adventures and all the readers. I’ll keep you guys updated via my blog as to if or when Weird Adventures will be coming back. Miss you guys already.
And there you have it. I’ve got other stuff I’m working on while I wait to see what course everything will take. I have two projects in particular with awesome collaborators, one with me as co-writer and the other with me as artist. Both are really exciting and the writing gig is a little similar in tone to Weird Adventures. The artwork lets me get back to some fun fantasy sci-fi stuff in the vein of what I used to do on Quantum.
I spent a few minutes trimming my ear hair earlier. Again. Getting old is getting old.
