Cottonstar is BACK!

Hey everyone! Wow, it has been A WHILE.

Life just keeps getting nuttier and nuttier and the scramble for survival never seems to get any less frantic. We were evicted about a year ago and have since found alternative accommodation in a high crime area at triple our previous rent, but it was the best compromise between being close to Ben’s work, having fibre internet and affordability. The house we live in now is really nice, but the crime has been a big issue. It’s quieter and more private, but we have to bring in our windshield wipers every time we park or they get stolen. BUT HEY! Life.

So, a development regarding Cottonstar:

We’ve decided to continue the comic in black and white, because doing full colour pages is just beyond our capacity at the moment. But we’ve both missed working on it so much that we just had to get back to it. We will still colour the pages for print, if and when it comes to that. We feel it’s better to put up b&w pages than no pages at all, and I think a lot of readers will agree.

Please watch this space. We are working on the new page currently, and it’s almost done. We’ll have it up ASAP! 🙂

Another note: We have closed down the Cottonstar Patreon page since we felt we were not offering anything of value. We instead opted to create and curate individual Patreon pages for our own art. If you are so inclined, please have a look at my Patreon, Ben’s Patreon, and my Etsy store! We apologise for the footers that still advertise our old Patreon page – they need to be removed one by one and I have yet to dive into the task.

As usual… thanks for sticking around!

  1. Awesome! Well, not the eviction or high-crime area part. People seriously steal windshield wipers there? Dang. I live in an area with high gang activity (heard somebody empty a clip one street over last night) but aside from somebody stealing the gas-can for our mower recently we haven’t had many issues with theft.
    Anyhow, black-and-white pages will be excellent! I’ve even continued reading comics that could only continue as text, getting that closure to the story-line is worth it! Though I hope Cottonstar has a good bit more to go in its story, so many questions to be answered! As you’re able of course, life/survival comes first and foremost.
    I’ll end this by saying a big Welcome Back!

    • Aw, thanks Ian! And yes… they steal anything that’s not literally one with the environment. They even yank lights, security cameras and other things off walls and take those. My nerves are a bit frazzled but we’re coping, I think.
      We’re so excited to get back to the comic, colour of no. Thanks for hanging around

    AAAAH, I’m so hyped that you’re getting back at it! I was worried when I swung by the site a few days ago and it said the license expired or something like that.

    Terribly sorry about your windshield wipers; didn’t know they were yours.
    Jokes aside, stay safe you guys and I really hope things start looking up for you guys ^^

    • IT WAS YOU! lol

      Yeah. Our tech friend forgot to renew the domain but it’s all good since no one else had snapped it up, and now it’s back! We’re so excited to get back to the comic as well!

What's on your mind?
