'Tis the season

I know at this point it's probably old news that CAD is going animated, but it's still pretty exciting to me. Especially ever since I turned over the script/storyboards for the first episode and can watch it all come together.

I'm astonished at how many people have signed up for something two months away based on a thirty-second clip. You guys never cease to amaze. The animation doesn't start until February, but as a thank you to everyone who bought the 12-month subscription, I'm going to start releasing exclusive stuff in January. Some wallpapers, an announcement for another cool project I'm working on, and maybe even an exclusive comic.

Also, I know a lot of you are concerned about how well CAD will be making the transition to animation. A lot of you are primarily worried about the voice-acting. Rest assured, we have professional voice actors that were hand-chosen by me personally to voice our favorite gamers. But to prove it to you, come sometime in February you'll be able to buy just the first episode at a discounted price, so you can see for yourselves.

With the christmas rush upon us , this week will be extra busy for me. Friday and Saturday's comics should be up on time, but Monday's comic may come late. Just fair warning.

Dead or Alive 4 was delayed again. Santa will be bringing me no fighting game goodness for the Xbox 360. At least it should be here in time for Winter-een-mas.

If I don't manage to post again until after the holidays (it may happen), I hope everyone has a great christmas!

For easy access

Winter-een-mas shirts are avilable for order here. I know that medium and extra large hoodies are nearly sold out, and the rest is going pretty fast. Just a heads up.

And Xbox 360 Console skins are here. I'm hoping that after the holidays I'll have a little bit of free time, and I can let you guys vote on what console I skin next.

I've said this before, but I'll reiterate: The Animated series is above and beyond the regular strip. The comic will always be free to view. It started free, and it will stay that way.

CAD Premium, including the animation, is just for people who want a little bit extra CAD in their lives.

Merry Christmas!
