You should see him throw handbrake turns!



And with this, we have to announce some bad-ish news. We are faced with a rather large piece of work, which is pretty much the same type of work as Cottonstar, only much higher in volume, with a tighter deadline, and which pays. So instead of working on Cottonstar, our free time will now be going into this project, which will wrap in three months’ time. (There’s also the Grahamstown festival in between all that.) We are forced to take a break from the comic during this time, so as to give the other project our all. We will most definitely still try to get pages out for you guys, but just in case that doesn’t happen… this is why. We are very sorry, trust us, we feel really bad about this and it’s going to be difficult not working on our own comic, but work comes first.

In the meantime, please feel free to reread the previous pages, share them with your friends, make fan art, send us mail, play a tune on the kazoo, anything! We love all that stuff so please don’t be shy. 🙂 We love and appreciate all our readers. And without you guys, the comic certainly wouldn’t be as much fun to do!

Also some good news: We will be at Free Comic Book Day this year! We’ll have 100 shiny, fresh copies of Chapter 2 to sell, plus about 200 copies of Chapter 1. We’re going to the printers this Saturday to do test prints! We’re very excited! 😀 Come on down to Readers Den in Stadium-on-Main in Claremont. It’s going to be absolutely amazing. The crowd just gets bigger every year!

Here’s to you, hope to see you all again soon. Then it will be full speed ahead again!

    Don’t sweat it, get lots of monies to feed yourselves, when you get back to it, through the next hundred chapters of cotton 😀

    Vuis drives like a Sowetan Taxi driver.

    Hopefully I’ll catch you guys @ rAge again this year.

    That is if you’ll be there. Hopefully this year will have less exploding gold pens and stock theft.

    • Hehe he learnt from the best! Sadly we won’t be at rAge 2013 – financially it’s impossible, and Ben used most of his annual leave for Grahamstown. But we really really wish we could be there, and there are plans to go again next year, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. 🙂

What's on your mind?
