We want to take a moment to give you an update on the webcomic and how that relates to some things going on behind the scenes.
As some readers may remember, there was a pause in the comic in the latter half of 2019, which was due to a sudden medical problem faced by our fearless writer and co-creator Carrie. We didn’t share many details with fans at the time, but it was a scary time involving an emergency hospitalization, and intensive surgery. She made it through like a champ, but in the process we learned that Carrie has been fighting against a destructive chronic illness known as Endometriosis. We hoped at the time that the professional care she received would be the last time the Endo would have to be dealt with that aggressively.
This unfortunately isn’t the case. The illness has rebounded, and for the better part of the last year it has pretty severely impacted Carrie’s day-to-day life, not to mention her available energy to work on Kamikaze. The good news is we have a date for a new round of treatment this fall, and Carrie is going to be treated by experts with years of experience treating Endometriosis. Because we know what we’re up against this time, there’s a much better chance of being able to put the illness on the ropes.
The upshot of this is that we are going to need some more time before we can start publishing the next episode of the main Kamikaze storyline. In the meantime, we’ll be sharing more of the stellar work of our Short Circuit anthology creators. We are also slowly finishing the last bits of polish on the animated short and working to get every Kickstarter backer their rewards. The patience and support we’ve received from everyone has been incredibly humbling, and we cannot thank you all enough.
Love to all of you,
-Alan, Carrie, and Havana
