Heya guys! I suddenly realized the past month was probably pretty confusing if you don't happen to follow my tumblr/twitter/goofy image links in the sidebar, so I decided to make a blog post here about my Patreon.

If you aren't familiar, Patreon is a system where you can basically donate a subscription amount to an artist. There's different tiers and stretch goals, kind of like kickstarter, but it's intended for regular content rather than making one big product.

You can read about the different rewards and milestone goals over at the patreon page, but the most relevant to this site is that any month the patreon hits $1000+, KB will update twice a week for the next month. Honestly, I'm amazed that it managed to hit that goal in the first month, which is why we had so many KBs in December. We fell a little short of it for January, but we're on track for another possible month of double updates in February!

So if you happen to have some bucks to spare, maybe consider becoming a KB Patremon! At $1+ you'll have access to the monthly wallpaper and backer request stream, and at $5+ you'll get early higher-res updates for both KB and Let's Speak English. Friday's KB is up there right now, in fact! I'm also doing weekly streams of various work, which you can catch most easily from my twitter or tumblr.

My content will always be here for free, and I never want anyone to feel obligated to pay me money for it. But if you happen to be so inclined, it really helps me focus my time on the work that's closest to my heart. And if you're already a backer, I seriously can't thank you enough. The fact that the patreon's been this successful so far has been a huge surprise and delight to a self-concious comic kid. Every dollar I save now buys me time in the future to pursue what's really important to me. Thank you so, so much!

Heya guys! I'm not sure how many of ya already read my Let's Speak English comics, but we just finished making a new site for it over at marycagle.com!

If you're not familiar, it's my journal comic about teaching English and Japan and what a weird person I am.

So if you haven't seen it, you can read it all easily over there! I also post 'em all to my tumblr if you're one of those TUMBLR KIDS.

That's all! Seeya next Friday for another KB!

Heya everybody, and welcome to the new Kiwi Blitz site!

It's been five years, but thanks to the good people at Hiveworks, KB finally has a new look! I'd been sitting on this design for a long time, so it feels pretty great to finally have it in practice :)

There's still a few kinks to work out and DNSes to update, but overall everything should be running smoothly! I hope everyone likes the new look, and I'm excited to start updating on this fresh site.

In other news, if you're going to be at Anime Expo, be sure to go see Nargyle there and thank her for the awesome job she's doing! She left me with quite the awesme buffer of pages before heading to LA, and I'm having so much fun working on them <3 And of course buy a little something while you're there ;3

Thanks for stopping by, and seeya again on Friday!

Heya Guys! In case you haven't already noticed, Kiwi Blitz is now a part of Hiveworks!
Some of you may already be here thanks to HW's ads, in which case welcome to my silly comic! It's super exciting to be a part of a collective company with a bunch of other cool comics, some of which are made by my friends and/or people I've admired the work of for a good while! I've been going through the different series and finding a bunch of new comics to read myself (most recently, Paranatural! Holy crap it's good!)

And of course there's also Clique Refresh, made by my good friend Amy and colored by me!

So if you're ever bored waiting for more Blitzes, you should definitely check out some of these other great comics! Meanwhile, I'll keep working towards being able to switch to twice a week. Trust me, I don't enjoy these long cliffhangers any more than you XD

And as always, thank you for stopping by and reading my comic! It's been so exciting to hear from the near readers; it's a good reminder of why I go home every night and work on comics as much as I can :) I hope you guys continue to enjoy what happens next!

Yo guys! First off, I'm so happy to be back to updating KB! For now, the comic will be updating once a week on Friday. However, we're currently working up a buffer so it can move to twice a week as soon as possible.

I say We because, as you might have noticed from the art, I've brought on a collaborator for the first time! The new penciler of KB is Grace Liu, who you might know as Nargyle! Nargyle is seriously one of my favorite artists, period, and it's a huge honor to have her working on KB with me. You are gonna flip when you see some of these upcoming pages! Her style is so animated and expressive, I can't take it! >:0

Meanwhile, I'll continue handling the writing, inks, and colors. So please don't think this in any way means I'm losing interest in working on the comic! Penciling has honestly always been the hardest part for me, so bringing on a talented collaborator to handle that part lets me focus on the stuff I feel more comfortable and skilled at. Plus, it leaves more time for more pages!

Obviously the site could use some updating, and there's also some other items of interest on their way. But for now, welcome back and Happy 5 Years of KB!

And as always, here's some links to things you might be interested in following!:
