ANYWAY yeah come hang out!  I am always happy to say HELLO to you lovely people, and I am always prepared for a mighty FIST-BUMP.  Hope to see you there!




(thank you so much to sayonararolling who has saved countless people this year by making that fantastic map)

HELLO FRIENDS

Will you be at Anime Expo this year?!  I WILL BE!  I am tabling in the HINTERLANDS of the Artist Alley, Table L31 to be exact.  I'll see about scarin' up a map to make it crystal clear.  Gonna have some sweet prints and shot glasses and.... PERHAPS A BIG SURPRISE OR TWO..?!  Swing on by and say hi if you're gonna be there!  I am stoked to talk to y'all :thumbsup:


ALSO, a gentle reminder: I'm getting a lot more active on TUMBLR than dA nowadays.  TAKE A GANDER

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.  This is a long one, STRAP IN AND HANG IN THERE


I am extremely pleased to finally announce A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF, all of which has been in the works for a good long time.  ENGAGE BULLET POINTS:



- FIRST, I would like to present you with THE ULTIMATE DOUBLE K READING EXPERIENCE:  DOUBLEK.CAPTAINOSAKA.COM!

A BRAND-NEW site, featuring:

- ALL FIFTY remastered pages from the Kickstarter redraw of Volume One, finally available for everyone to enjoy,
- NEW ALT-TEXT for every single page, along with revised and/or new commentary,
- Upscaled page size for spotting even more of those ridiculous background details,
- and a beautiful, quick-to-load, minimalist design that nonetheless channels the tacky neon charms of THE EIGHTIES

I hope you enjoy re-reading the comic in this new capacity, and that you enjoy the continuing story there! HIT THAT RSS! UPDATE YOUR BOOKMARKS ACCORDINGLY! (I will, of course, continue updating here and at Smackjeeves as well, but DOUBLEK.CAPTAINOSAKA.COM will always be the first stop for new pages.)


- NEXT, I am proud to finally announce the opening of CAPTAINOSHOPA!!  

THE LONG-AWAITED E-STORE, where you can find things that were previously only available at conventions or through the DOUBLE K Kickstarter campaign - including the last remaining copies of DOUBLE K: VOLUME ONE (!!!), shirts, MAX B.A.C. shot glasses, and some long-requested art prints! Go take a look!  The storefront is handled by the very-reliable STORENVY.  Everything is also in very limited quantities, so you might not want to wait TOO long!  CAPTAINOSAKA.STORENVY.COM

- THIRDLY, I have finally caved in and joined up over at TUMBLR!

Things are a little threadbare over there for now, but I'm going to be making it my go-to art blog, so ADD ME if Tumblr is your jam too.  It also serves as a hub for everything else I've got going on now, so there's that too.  So yes it is TUMBL TIME.  CAPTAINOSAKA.TUMBLR.COM or CAPTAINOSAKA.COM will get you there just fine :thumbsup:

- FINALLY, of course, ENJOY A NEW PAGE OF DOUBLE K!  Possibly over at DOUBLEK.CAPTAINOSAKA.COM?!


Thank you all SO MUCH for reading all that, and thank you DOUBLY for stickin' with me for all these years!!  I really hope you enjoy everything I've been cooking up.  And of course, I LOVE YOU GUYS, DON'T YOU EVER FORGET IT :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
I have been hush-hush for a while now, but that doesn't mean I haven't been brewin' stuff up.  SO LET'S JUST CUT TO THE CHASE - HAVE A NEW PAGE of DOUBLE K, and then, come Tuesday of next week, there will be another - along with a giant GIGATON NUKE of an announcement.

Thanks for being so cool about the protracted absence, everybody.  Big things take time, and life often gets in the way simultaneously, so it's been really awesome reading the comments from everybody being all like "take your time, duder."  (HappyAggro, shout out to you in particular, that was mucho appreciated and very kindly/hilariously worded.) Said it before and I'll say it again, you're the best bunch of readers a dude like me could possibly ask for :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

ANYWAY YEAH enjoy that new page, and I'll see you again on Tuesday.  STAY BEAUTIFUL, FRIENDOS
SO HEY a few things:


- Guys thanks so much for the great reception you gave HURRICANE JAYNE, it was a really fun change of pace and I'm really glad you liked it :thumbsup: Makes me super stoked on sharing more original stuff with y'all later on down the line :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

-DOUBLE K IS BACK! I am AMPED to get to where we're going story-wise, let me tell you :toocool:

- and speaking of DOUBLE K, holy shit check this outrageously badass gift art by maesesag.  SO VERY BOSS.  I lost my mind a little when I saw this, crazy good work my friend.  DOUBLE K fanart remains one of my favorite things to see with my eyes and this one was a DOOZY


Thanks for hangin' out and reading my stuff and for making your own awesome stuff AND for all the great feedback, you guys.  You totally are the best people :thumbsup:


CAPTAIN OUT

READ IT IMMEDIATELY

------------

Gonna hit you with a couple of - what else - BULLET POINTS

- Still can't thank y'all enough for how crazy far you guys knocked it out of the park over at Kickstarter.  THANK YOU so much.  BACKERS, stay tuned over there for all the latest developments; exciting stuff is just around the bend :thumbsup:

- On a related note ARE YOU CAUGHT UP WITH DOUBLE K???  We are heading into some mega-bananas, not-to-be-missed territory here, folks, and we're headin' there QUICK


All right that's it for the time being, it is back to CRUNCH TIME for me.  This DRAMATIC, HARD-HITTING FINALE ain't gonna draw itself :toocool:
Items of note:

- NEW PAGES continue unabated here and at doublek.thewebcomic.com.  ARE YOU CAUGHT UP?!?!

- There are just a couple short days left over at Kickstarter; if you were thinkin' you wanted to THROW DOWN, time's running short!

- Speaking of which, the PARTY PACK and EXECUTIVE PARTY PACK slots have been re-opened in a super limited number.  If you wanted to snag one of those, hop on it!  They went way faster than I thought they would have, so I don't know how long they'll be around this time.

- And of course, HOLY MOSES THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH.  You've exceeded even my most ridiculous expectations and made DOUBLE K a truly UNSTOPPABLE FORCE.  LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT'S IN STORE, it's gonna be REALLY DAMN GOOD :thumbsup:

KICK IT
You guys remember that big announcement re: DOUBLE K's future I mentioned a little while back?  WELL STRAP IN, after working many many hours on it, IT'S HERE

DOUBLE K's easily been the most fun comic I've ever worked on, both in terms of my being proud of the content and in terms of bein' able to make a seriously awesome bunch of folks happy.  BUT, I've never been able to give it the time and attention I really wanted to, given the demands of my day job and its erratic, hectic schedule.

You know what, though?  SCREW THAT.

I'm gonna go ahead and assume that you folks want what I want, which is to see DOUBLE K barrel non-stop toward its staggeringly explosive conclusion (and believe you me, it is already written and it is an outrageous, not-to-be-missed ending).  And I've tried to get that momentum going before, but work always had to come first eventually.  Not so anymore.  I'm taking a calculated (some might accurately say "insane" or "ludicrous" or perhaps "suicidal") risk here and turning down freelance work for a while to do this, because DAMMIT I believe in you wonderful folks to help this comic get DONE RIGHT.

SO WITH THAT SAID, HERE'S HOW TO HELP

KICK IT

I've set up a Kickstarter project to get THREE THINGS done, namely MORE UPDATES, a way for you guys to read the comic IN PRINT, and to set up a shop of FULL-ON LEGAL DOUBLE K-inspired goods (such as those shot glasses from way back) to support the comic until it is FINISHED.

There's a ton more info there (including important copyright info related to the book side of things) along with a totally ridiculous video that you will definitely want to watch.  

FOLKS I WANT THIS TO WORK OUT SO BAD, it is killing me.  There is so much on the horizon for this comic that is going to be SO GODDAMNED GOOD and I want to get there!!  I KNOW you do too!  Please check the Kickstarter page out, if you can, chip in (GOD BLESS YOU FOREVER), and if you can't, please help get the word out to folks who might be interested in this kind of thing.


THANK YOU SO MUCH

your captain SALUTES YOU BIG-TIME





p.s.  DOUBLE K returns this Friday, January 13!!!

p.p.s.  i'll be fielding questions as best I possibly can both here and over at Kickstarter, so ask away.
:iconfrustratedrocka: put together a video of the last few pages of DOUBLE K set to the context-appropriate soundtrack and holy MOSES it rules.

CHECK IT OUT NOWWWW and totally full-screen it, then go E-HIGH FIVE the hell out of him :thumbsup:

SO DAMN FRESH
Hope you folks had a righteous YULE-FEST, did you get everything you wanted???  NO, NOT EVERYTHING, because you haven't gotten MY present yet!

BUT (with just minutes to spare until the 26th here on the west coast) HERE IT IS



MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT


I'LL SEE YOU IN THE NEW YEAR, MY FRIENDS :thumbsup:
That's right, we're FINALLY THERE


Thanks for reading, everyone.  Seriously, I started this thing out as basically an in-joke and it's ballooned into something pretty ridiculously amazing, thanks in large part to YOU



I'm too sick to do any kind of a celebratory thing, but know you have my GRATITUDE and FIST-BUMPS into PERPETUITY.



And, as I've been mentioning lately, it would be beyond rad if you guys could keep gettin' the word out - if you've got a smackjeeves account, +add DOUBLE K to your watch list over there, do some TWEETIN', do some TUMBLIN', and so on.  I appreciate it immensely :thumbsup:



Much more to come, folks.  The best is totally on the horizon, MARK MY WORDS.  FOR NOW, though, I am going to go put myself into a medically induced coma for 24 hours/until this god damn cold skedaddles


THANK YOU ALL ONCE AGAIN, YOU ARE THE GREATEST READERS EVER!!
