A week ago I was taking a short hike in the woods near my house and mulling over the plot for the upcoming Blade Bunny. Or lack of plot as the case may be. Granted I had ideas but they were all just sort of variations on things that I had already done in the comic. It all felt stale. Like I was putting a new paint job on the same product and calling it “new and improved”. And that’s when I realized I was done with Bunny.
Now I could just end the comic at this point, but we are making enough money to keep it running*, and this comic is pretty fun when you get right down to it. So I figure why let someone else have a shot. After all the whole point of this, of making comic online, is to have fun. I could stay on as an managing editor to coordinate things and look over the scripts to insure a smooth transition of story and just let someone else have a hand at writing this comic. Hopefully they could bring in new ideas and directions that I didn’t even think of.
Thus I am seeking a new writer for the comic. It will be a paid position, although only marginally so (I’m thinking $5 a page but I am willing to negotiate), with other benefits such as 24 comic pages drawn by Erwin to be used on your own personal projects and profit sharing if they ever materialize.
If you are interested send a copy of some writing you have done, preferably humorous writing, to email@example.com with the Title “Writer for Blade Bunny”.
Some of you may be wondering what will happen to me if I stop writing Blade Bunny and the honest truth is I will be taking probably a year off from writing just to recharge. I have been writing comics non-stop for 9 years now and I just need a bit of a break. I have some ideas but I really haven’t had any time to work on them. So I’m going to just be taking a bit of a sabbatical, I’ll still be around but in a more administrative role. I’ll talk a bit more about it when it’s time to transfer over the reigns.
* Technically we are running at a loss but I am hoping the finances will turn around
Normally I space out these rewards to have one update a month. After all, it cost money to make these silly wallpapers. If I post to many at once I eat all the possible profits. The whole point of the wallpapers it to try an make enough money to support the comic. Posting two back to back, and right before a “spend all your money on stuff” holiday, is not the best way to make money, even if we are currently running in the red.
And then A Gray Phantom had to say this:
“Dargh-blargh argh!!! JUST KISS DAMMIT!!! (º□º)”
Gahhh! Must resist urge to taunt… Even though he used capital letters and everything. Inner internet troll coming to surface… Must resit natural wise-ass nature… MUST… STAY… STRONG!
AHHHHHHH!!! No I can’t. I just can’t. So here you are. A wallpaper of exactly what A Gray Phantom ask for. Bunny and Kyoto just KISS, damnit!
As always these free wallpapers are a way to ask for support of the comic (and, perhaps, in this case , to also be a bit of an ass). As I said money is really tight right now and any support you can give is very much appreciated. Hell if we raise enough money to keep the lights on, one day, we might see Bunny and Kyoto kiss as well as KISS.
Thanks for you support.
Well it’s been a little while since I reminded you guys of the various ways you can support the comic. Of course you get a little reward for your support… or actually you get the reward for not supporting the comic either.
This comic runs on donations at this point. I ran out of money to pay for the comic on my own a couple of months ago. If you can help in any way it is much appreciated. But even if you can I appreciate you taking the time to visit me and listen to the silly stories I tell.
The reward image for this reminder is one of the most requested events that I get. Every time Bunny does a flip or a handstand people ask for Bunny to suffer a wardrobe malfunction. Well, let it not be said that I don’t give the people what they want.
So here are your buttons to support the comic.
And here is Bunny’s Wardrobe Malfunction.
It was noticed that there was a bit of a image distortion in the last page of Jin’s prologue. This is because I had to make a last minute change to the dialogue of the comic. In that I had to remove a lot of the dialog. The comic as originally scripted had a lot more talking in it. I didn’t see the flaw until I got the art back from Erwin and was confronted by the wall of words in the page.
But since you spotted my quick modifications I might as well show you the page before my self and the patreon donors (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, get it, patreon donors get special access) edited it. So yet again you get an alternate storytelling perspective. This time the art of shutting the hell up.
