Hey everyone. I asked some friends if they’d like to do some pin ups for Bad News Kids to help the transition while I’m looking for a new artist. Bradford Waugh was kind enough to draw this awesome piece:

chapter three up NOW

Chapter three, the conclusion of the first story arc, is now available for all you lovely people to read! As always, let us know what you think through a comment or email!

updates: hillmon’s departure and future projects

It’s been quite an adventure for Hillmon and I (Jared) to create Bad News Kids. It’s been a year or two since the ideas started churning, and we’ve been creating comics together for over two years. So it’s unfortunate to say that Hillmon will be not be drawing Bad News Kids after chapter three.

It was a tough decision, but due to delays and some factors making themselves clear, I’ll now be looking for a new artist to continue the adventure after the third chapter of Bad News Kids is released. This may cause a longer delay between chapter three and four, but hopefully I can find someone soon who’s excited about this comic. If you’re interested or know someone who may be interested, feel free to email me. Of course, I’ll keep all of you in the loop as things progress.

And although Hillmon and I will not be creating comics together, we are beginning a new project yet to be announced that will be awesome. It’s definitely comic related, but it’s not a comic. Stay tuned for more on that.

And lastly, chapter three is now complete! It will be released next week on Tuesday. It’s the conclusion of the first story arc and has some big changes for our characters and the story.

Sorry for the long post, but thanks so much to all of you who are sticking around and still reading! It’s very appreciated.

chapter 3 soon, updates

Hey everyone. Bad News Kids chapter 3 is coming along really really nicely now. It should definitely be online soon, and I’m really excited about it. This is where things begin to pick up and there’s lots of action and fun. So be sure to check back around that time!

Also, some very VERY big announcements on the horizon, so stay tuned.

chapter two is now up!

That’s right, chapter two is now live! So please go check it out and let us know what you think. Thanks!!

Or if you haven’t read chapter one, start here. Thanks!

chapter two out this friday

The adventure continues this friday!! Chapter two is now completed and will be online February 17th. I just reread the chapter after finishing up some last minute lettering and I could not be more excited to see what all of you think! I know it’s been a few months since chapter one came out, so I encourage you to glance over it one more time before friday. Hope all of you enjoy it and please shoot us an email or comment and let us know what you think!

For every comic hillmon and I make, I usually pass out a pdf to a few friends for editing and their thoughts before it’s released. Here’s the cover made for that for chapter two:

fun stuff

Here’s some extra pics from the past couple of weeks. Jared actually drew the last one. Yeah, he’s an artist too. Kind of. Hillmon seems to really enjoy doing extra art and fun concepts on the comics we make. We’re still working hard on issue two, and it should be out sometime in December. But I can’t make any promises with school, work, and holidays. We’ll see. Enjoy.
