Now that it’s almost the end of January, I bet a lot of you are wondering when Cleo and Khensu are coming back. As some of you know, I originally planned on Chapter 3 starting up this month. Unfortunately, as in the norm whenever plans are being made, some stuff has come along that has forced me to put a pause on working on Cleopatra in Space. I’ve recently had some publishing/freelance opportunities that I couldn’t turn down as well as fatherhood being more of a dent in my productivity than I originally anticipated. These are both GREAT things! Just not for this webcomic.
Thankfully, a few of my friends and fellow comic makers are stepping in to make sure this site does not go unupdated any longer. Starting Monday, I’m going to be posting guest strips from some of my favorite people working in comics. Just judging from the handful of strips I’ve already received, you guys are in for a treat. I don’t even think you’re going to miss me. But just in case you are, I’ve written a four page “deleted scene” from chapter two that Wes Molebash and Josh Ulrich are lending their fantastic artistic talents to. Akila fans should definitely enjoy it. I can’t express how thankful I am that all of these creators are taking time out of their own busy schedules to offer some content for this site. I hope you are as excited to see what they have in store as I am.
I want to be clear though that I am NOT ending this webcomic. This story was planned as a three chapter arc and I’m going to finish it one way or another. I even started working on it before that other stuff came along. It’s just going to take a little longer than planned is all.
