An explanation and apology to readers

16 Oct

by Mike Hansen

After a productive first couple of months, ALL DAY COMICS has been updated in fits and starts for a while now. Why? Well, it’s all my fault. I’m the one who does all of the updating, regardless of who contributes to the site. I’d originally envisioned ADC as an Ain’t It Cool-style site about comics, with contributions from several folks supporting my schedule. For various reasons, it hasn’t quite worked out that way, so thanks for sticking with the site despite the irregular posting.

So, WHY has ADC been updated so infrequently lately? Well, the main reason is that I have less free time: after being out of comics for a decade, I’m finally doing some professional comics work again. First off, I’ve been doing freelance research work for Marvel. I’ve helped out in an unofficial capacity in the past (there are a handful of Marvel books that credit me in the Special Thanks section, most recently X-MEN: BISHOP’S CROSSING), but now I’m getting to do paid research, which is really exciting and is a great outlet for my otherwise useless nerdy comics knowledge. (Since Marvel books have a long production schedule, you won’t see my pro credits in them for a while, though.)

I’m also in the process of creating some cool comics with some amazingly talented artists, and I hope to be able to share some of that work in the next few months. I can’t say much yet, except that we think we’re creating some exciting and original work, and I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks.

In the meantime, I’ll do my best to keep ADC chugging along as best I can. I’ve got a few more things to post in the next week or two – and very soon, an amazing interview that Orion conducted down at Comic-Con.

Onward!
