Update #8

Cantankerous on hold

1 comment

Hello Everyone,

I am sad to report that Cantankerous has lost its lead artist Chris Bivins.  Chris has decided not to continue working on the project, and we are very disappointed in his decision.  Starting today, we are officially placing the project on hold and dismantling our many web presences until a future date that will see the project relaunched with an artist who is fully committed to the completion of the story.  

We are optimistic that we will find this person soon, but you will likely not see anything new from Cantankerous until it is nearly completed.  This will shield us against another false start.   

On the bright side, Elio Guevara and I have a wonderfully illustrated graphic novel called El Grande that we have been working on since 2009 that will finally see print this year, and we will notify all of you the day we begin to market it in the Spring.  El Grande is a 105 page science fiction, soul searching, who-done-it set against the dystopian backdrop of the distant future.  If you have every wanted to see a mash-up of Leaving Los Vegas and The Fifth Element, this will be the book for you. 

Thank you all for your incredible support and we wish you all a Happy New Year!

Joe Karg and Elio Guevara


Update #7

Thank You For Your Support

Happy Holidays Everyone,

We hope you enjoy our holiday gift of not being charged.  You're welcome. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

We can't thank all of you enough for your incredible support of our project.  These last thirty days have been a real roller coaster for us on the Cantankerous team and today was one of the craziest. So many of you came out in our final hour and I really thought we might make it to the goal around the middle of the day today. 

The Kickstarter is over and our printing plans have been postponed until we can gather the finances to give it another shot, but we still have every intention of moving forward with the web-comic in the coming months.  The designs for the whole world are finished and we are ready to draw!

For any of you who are still interested in donating to the production of the web-comic without any reward besides helping us create a wonderful free adventure story, you can follow this link to our Paypal page. PAYPAL LINK.  

The more money we can raise, the faster we will be able to generate new content. Cantankerous is a 150 page story that we will be working on all of 2013 and beyond. 

We love all of you guys/gals and we hope to hear from you as we begin to roll out our story next year.  Please stop by and let us know what you think whenever you'd like. 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank You for your time, sharing, love and support,

Joe Karg, Elio Guevara and Chris Bivins

Final Push!

Hello everyone,

As many of you already know, today is the final day for Cantankerous on Kickstarter.  With only eight hours left, we wanted to extend a final battle cry for our project.  "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers..." Please take a moment out of your day and share our link with and help us reach our goal.

No matter the outcome, this has been an incredible experience and I'm forever grateful to all of you who contributed their time and money to our dream.  

Thank you for your continued support,

Joe Karg

Hey Backers,

I have just begun my IAMA on reddit.com.  For those of you who don't know, this is an event where people from anywhere in the world can come and ask me questions about whatever they'd like.  If you would like to know anything about Cantankerous, now is the time to come and ask.  You could also ask about what is was like to work on Archer or Unsupervised for FX or what size pants I purchase.  Anything you like.  I'll answer it all between the hours of 12:00pm and 4:00pm.

Hope to see you there,

Joe
