This past October, Nick and I were at a transitional period in our creative careers. We had just completed Dead of Summer, and we were ready to embark on a brand new adventure with the launch of our second webcomic, Art Fight High School. In the background, we were just testing a new live event, something that was done as a lark with good friends of ours, called Super Art Fight.
We thought then that Super Art Fight was just something that would slowly build, while we embarked on writing our “next great tale.” It seems history has had a much different outcome, as I now announce to you that Art Fight High School will be going on indefinite hiatus, effective immediately, while we focus on making Super Art Fight the best it can be.
I know, you’re probably pretty confused, and maybe a little worried about what this means, so allow me to elaborate on the what and the why on this decision.
- First, this does not mean that Nick and I are no longer working together as a cohesive unit. Infact, it means, we’re probably working together more than ever, as we move our focus toward building Super Art Fight as a live event throughout the United States into 2010 and beyond.
- This is not the end of our output in the world of webcomics. With Art Fight High School, you have a lengthy, difficult to balance extended tale that our current schedules (between real life and Super Art Fight) cannot properly do justice. However, Nick and I have a project, launching very shortly, which will allow us to continue to get content out there. If you’re familiar with our history, you may know what it’s going to be, but if not, don’t worry, we’ll be publicizing it on here ASAP.
- ArtFightHighSchool.com is not closing. Much like Dead of Summer, we will keep the archive open indefinately, so that you can read it, and we intend to, one day, hopefully continue where we left off.
- We aren’t leaving the world of conventions. If anything, we’re doubling or trippling them.
This past summer of conventions was a tough one, but it allowed us to realize where our future lies, and we cannot wait to take everything to the next level.
Nick and I greatly appreciate the outpouring of support and respect we’ve received over the years here on the web, and we also cannot wait to grow Super Art Fight to where we can meet you all in person one day.
We appreciate your understanding in this transitional period in our careers, and look forward to seeing you at the many cons and shows where Super Art Fight makes it’s appearances, plus on our new site launching very soon.
