Usagi will be going on a much slower schedule in 2012. This will give me time to catch up on my deadlines, but mostly because I will be doing the art for an, as yet, unannounced project.
This is one reason why, after conferring with Editor Diana, we decided to publish 3 Usagi trades in 2 years, rather than the 1-a-year schedule that has been the norm for the past few years.
She also suggested that when I return to Usagi, it might be good to do so with a big storyline. So, I will probably finally do that 6-issue War of the Worlds arc that I've been wanting to do for awhile.
I am about half way through doing the art for UY 144. After that, I will be working on my Mouse Guard story, then covers for the two trades, followed by the art for 145. Hopefully, by then, I will have started on this new project.
