Hey everyone, I just wanted to briefly let you all know what exactly it is I’ve been doing for the past several months. I’m currently being paid to work on another webcomic called ‘Hoopfighter’, tied to Shaquille O’neal. The comic is only part of a bigger franchise, which will include an online animated miniseries and a game for mobile devices. I think it’s safe to say I’m feeling pretty darn good about getting paid to draw a scifi martial arts series! The comic is 100 pages long, so I’ll be working on it probably into May. I’m going to start posting pages here in the mean time, although I’m already close to 20 pages into the story. You can read the archive on the Hoopfighter website and like it on Facebook, if you’re in to that sort of thing.

There are a couple reasons why this project is good for NN4B in the long run. First is that Hoopfighter has me producing three comic pages a week. I’ve definitely found a rhythm with fast page production that I’d like to carry back over to NN4B in the hopes of increasing its update schedule to, if not three, then at least two pages a week. Second, working on someone else’s webcomic is having the effect of making me want to get back to working on my own! Still, that’s not going to be possible until the Hoopfighter project is completed. It just coincidentally happens to end at approximately the same time I’d intended to finish my NN4B comic hiatus.

Just to clarify, I had no hand in writing of creating the Hoopfighter story, I’m solely the artist in this project.
