Greetings! We are in the process of building a brand-spanking new website for Howling @ the Gates. We hope to have it ready for you by next week but, in the interest of not leaving folks dangling from the cliffhanger that ended our second arc, we're moving ahead this week by publishing the opener to the third arc (What Time is It?) over at Litstack.com.
This week's strip takes us back in the past and begins to answer the awful question, "What happened to Grant?" Grab your tissues and brace yourself as we come face-to-face with H@TG 3.01- The Greater Good
Well, kids, that wraps up the second arc of H@TG and we hope we've left you wondering (in the immortal words of Joss Whedon), "Where do we go from here?"
We're going to take a little break to try and up our game on a number of levels so look for the third arc (currently nameless!) to debut on November 3rd along with some other cool stuff. With a year under our belt, we know it's time to kick it up a notch and we going to come out of the corner swinging.
In the meantime, please indulge us by helping us thank a number of people without whom this strip would not be possible. They are (in no particular order) Tee Tate, Adrienne Crezo, Jennifer Messner, Johanna Draper Carlson, Cody Dracars, Matt Price, Katie Davis, Alan David Doane, Susan Miles, November Kris (at Deviant Art), Lisa Hightower, Randy Talley, Marvin Mann and Kirk Strauser. And whoever we forgot to mention because we're hardly methodical people. We love you none the lesser.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled installment of Howling @ the Gates to share this shocking new image broadcast from the Mars Rover Curiosity.
Peace, love and duckface from the Red Planet, y'all!
Surrriously though, Shayna and I have just completed a massive non-H@TG related project that has been consistently knocking us off schedule for the past few weeks. We're super proud of the work we've done but superbummed about having marred our (near) perfect record of weekly updates. The storyline that begins next week is going to be a real barnburner though--a meeting of two of the finest minds in human history and we can't wait to start sharing with you. Things is about to get cray cray up in this mug and we'll hope that you'll come back next week to enjoy it with us.
As regular followers of the strip now know, Hiro the ferret is lost! We know where he is but we'd like to know what YOU think. The best answer wins a page of original art work from the Howling @ the Gates series. Send your responses to email@example.com before Sunday, May 13 at 9 p.m.
Shayna has created a lovely t-shirt design featuring Hypatia, Grant and Hiro as part of a Retro Future contest on Deviant Art! Please consider clicking this link to view the design and help propel us into a glorious future filled with freedom and snacks.
THERE WILL BE SNACKS!
Here's a sneak peek at the design just to whet your appetite...
