Kill All Monsters is taking a break, sort of

If you’ve already read this week’s installment of Kill All Monsters, you’ve seen the announcement. After six straight months of updating every single week (even on holidays), Jason and I need a little break from posting pages.

But NEVER FEAR! We aren’t taking a break from creating the comic and it will be back. It’s just that we’re starting to feel a little rushed and as we head into the second act of our story we want to make sure that it’s the best it can be. In other words, we just need a little breathing room that we haven’t been able to get on the schedule we set for ourselves.

When we come back, we plan to resume that schedule, but we’ll do so with a nice buffer and full confidence that we’re telling the story the way that it needs to be told.

In the meantime, I’ll continue updating this blog with The History of KAM, Jason’s process drawings, and any other giant monsters/robots goodies I find around the Internet. And of course this will be where we’ll announce details about KAM‘s return.

So stay tuned here, follow Jason and me on Twitter, or Like our Facebook page. However you like to stay in touch, we’re looking forward to lots more monster-killing with you.

Kill All Monsters!: The Ashcan

In this week’s Kill All Monsters! we get to see a bit of the giant robots’ base and our two scenes start to come together. I’m getting excited. Are you excited?

Know what else is exciting? We’re printing a very limited edition Kill All Monsters! ashcan. Depending on how quickly the printer works, Jason will be taking copies to ECCC in early March and I’ll have some a couple of weeks later at C2E2. If there are any still left, I’ll take some to SpringCon in May as well. If you’re not going to be at either of the March shows and don’t want to take your chances about SpringCon, the best way to get yours is to contact Jason either at j(dot)copland(at)telus(dot)net or through Twitter.

The ashcan will have 28 pages (the entire first chapter of the story) of black-and-white interior art and a full colour cover, all in a landscape format. Again, this is going to have an extremely limited print run. Once they’re gone, they’re gone and Jason’s even going to include a small KAM ink drawing if you order from him. Price is only $10, which is a steal for Copland art.

Kill All Monsters! pp 33-35

Apologies for not mentioning this on Friday (my son turned 9 over the weekend and there was much preparing to do), but another three Kill All Monsters! pages went up. And lest anyone thought we were about to launch into another, long, story-delaying fight…never fear. This one ended pretty quickly.

But who’s that in the helicopter?

Also, Jason’s continued showing some behind-the scenes process stuff at his blog.
