If you follow my Tweeters, you might have already heard about some exciting news!
From now on I’ll be drawing another Tuesday/Thursday comic, The Trenches! If you aren’t already familiar with ze Traunches, it’s a comic written by the Penny Arcade guys and my comics dad Scott Kurtz! It’s about a group of game testers and the terrifying enterprise that game testing actually is.
Scott’s been the artist for the Trenches since it started, but with a lot of projects coming up he wanted someone qualified to take over art duties on this one. We’ll see if I turn out to be that person! Suffice to say I’m super excited for the opportunity to work with all these guys on a project like this.
This won’t affect KB’s update schedule in the future, as I plan to work well ahead on the Trenches. But for this week, things are just starting and I’m trying to learn a whole new style, so please bear with me! This week’s second KB update will go up tomorrow, and then we’ll return to our regular wonky schedule.
In any case, I can’t express how much I look forward to this whole enterprise! If you told me a few years ago that I’d be drawing a comic with Scott, Mike, and Jerry, I would slap you and then laugh and cry until I exploded. Life is pretty fuckin’ weird and awesome sometimes.
