Book Three

Hello everyone.

We're sorry that we've seemed to have dropped off the face of the planet! We never meant for it to take this long between updates. O_o We have not given up on What Birds Know, and we still have every intention of finishing it, so rest assured: the comic has just been on hiatus, and although an update comes with this post, sadly the comic will continue to be on hiatus for a while longer.

The situation is this: We're struggling to promote ourselves as professional comic artists here in Sweden, both by trying to get What Birds Know published (in Sweden, to begin with), and by making a name of ourselves by taking on commissions, participating in contests etc. This has taken up a lot of our time, and although it will be beneficial to us in the long run, WBK has suffered for it these last months.

Right now we're working on a 40-page comic about Swedish writer and Nobel prize laureate Selma Lagerlöf, commissioned by Kulturpoolen. It's going to be published, so that's great for us, but it's a lot of hard work. We try to squeeze in WBK on our schedule whenever we can, but it's very tight, and since we don't think WBK would benefit from updating with only one page at a time, we decided not to update at all until we have more completed pages.

We're sorry we haven't made an announcement about this sooner. We're very stressed out, and that's about the only excuse we have. We hope you can forgive us, and that you will find the rest of the comic worth the wait. :)

However, both of the times we have put WBK on a long hold, it has been at the end of a "volume" (if the comic had been in printed form). Just see it as the wait before the next volume comes out, of for that matter, the wait between seasons of your favorite TV show... ;P (Sooner or later, the volumes will also be reflected in the comic archive. This update marks the beginning of what will be volume 3. All in all, we aim for four volumes.)

Please have patience and bear with us. We will start updating WBK regularly again in May or sooner. Hope to see you then! :)
