Where is Blue Yonder?

So I can't stand it anymore. I have to post something about Blue Yonder, even if it is just to talk about Blue Yonder's status. So here it goes.

First of all, Blue Yonder is not dead. I'm really not sure what Blue Yonder is, but I am sure dead is not the word. The truth is, Blue Yonder, as a webcomic, has taken a financial, creative and personal toll. Don't get me wrong: I've loved every minute of it. But I still have to recognize the financial price of commissioning an artist and paying for a website alongside writing a story every week when I could be focusing on other projects. While Blue Yonder has open a few doors for me, it hasn't completely broken even either.

We're at the crossroads, now more than ever. I can't go into all the specifics, but there's some big changes coming down the pipeline, and neither Luke nor myself know how they are going to shake out. One change I can mention is that in a few months, Luke will be a father (how did we get so old?). Suffice to say, we have a lot on our plate.

This isn't to say we've completely stopped writing. Instead, we are just using the time to work on other projects. Right now, I'm revising the second draft of a mythical murder mystery. Luke is currently in the planning stages of a Western science fiction that's unlike anything I've ever seen on the screen or on the page. We're keeping busy.

Here is what is happening on Blue Yonder. We are prepping it for a Comixology release, so you'll be able to rediscover Jared Davenport's journey with Comixology's patented Guided View. There will also be a brand new cover from Diego Diaz plus concept art and scripts.

Right now we are making sure the pages meet Comixology's submission standards. That means putting every page into the proper format. That also means correcting all those spelling errors our gracious audience pointed out. We're really close to getting the pages finished. After that, it's just a matter of getting the cover, the credit's page and the logo done. And then it's four to six weeks to get through Comixology's submission process. So fingers crossed, Blue Yonder will be out on Comixology in the next two to three months.

What happens after we've released all of Blue Yonder so far on Comixology? I really wish I knew. I can only promise one thing: Blue Yonder will continue. There's more of the story to tell. I'm not sure when exactly Blue Yonder will continue. I'm not really sure how Blue Yonder will continue. I'm don't even know what form it will take - but Blue Yonder will be back!
