January is gone and we finished a few of our current comic issues. As you may have seen the last week we only updated Nightfighter with all of our other titles on break. Rather than updating just once a week we decided to take a break for all of February and return on March 1st instead. There are many reasons and upsides to this and I'd like to elaborate on them now.
First and foremost, it gives us much needed time to create more content. We do have a buffer in place to ensure a smooth update schedule but rather than plowing through that buffer and hoping that we can keep up the schedule the break allows us to work ahead once we return with our comics. Since almost all of our titles have finished their current issues it's not much different than waiting a month for your favorite comic to be released as a book anyway.
Then of course it gives us time to make improvements to the website. As you may have noticed, sometimes the site is very slow. We are working on that and while we can't guarantee that it will be noticeable faster, we can at least try to speed things up. A small overhaul of our systems will probably make everthing smoother and nicer.
Furthermore it will give us time to sort through our backlog. Every now and then we update our old comics to be published on comiXology and for that we need to go back, fix coloring mistakes and spelling errors and of course that will result in updated versions on the website. Doing those things takes time and since we all do this in our free time, time is not a thing we have to waste.
Last but not least it will help us carve out ways for more new comics which will ultimately mean you get to read more of our stuff, which is always nice. There are so many things one can accomplish in a month, even a short one, so these are the main things we want to tackle in February.
And of course, we have some things for you this month. Regularly check our facebook page as we will update it with previews and extra art all month long to give you a little tease of what's to come. We have a few nice surprises in store and I can't say too much yet but summer won't be boring this year^^
Thanks for staying with us, visit us on facebook and see you next month!
