a few words

february has come and gone… and boy am i tired. it’s been not-stop here since about october.

my two marvel books are done and will be hitting the shelves this month;  Captain America And The First Thirteen written by Kathryn Immonen and Deadpool Team-up #883 written by Skottie Young. art chores on both are courtesy of lil’ old me. if you are inclined you can pick them up at your local comic shop!

i wrapped the last page of deadpool 883 last week and took a week off. well, when i say a week off i mean caught up on all the things i’d been pushing aside.

i am currently in the beginning stages of my next project for a small publisher. it’s a bit on the super secret side, but i feel it is the opportunity of a lifetime. it’s a graphic novel that is giving me the opportunity to work with one of my creative inspirations growing up. as soon as i can share more i will.

what does this mean overall?

it means that yes i will be busy, but it also means my schedule will not be in a state of chaos. i have the one project on my plate for the next 6 months, along side my small monthly obligation to owl kids magazine. so while my monday to friday will be devoted to contractual obligations, weekends are mine… for my own projects.

so kukuburi will be restarting very very shortly…. give me a week or two to organise my time and my schedule…

i will try and post weekly updates leading up to the stories relaunch.

thank you all for your patience.

best,

ramon.

    Moi, Ramon, after all the stuff you been throu (Landlord issues, looking for new home, busy like hell with work & work work) it’s a woder you’re still walking on two legs instead of crawling on all four.

    Take your time, and – there ain’ no shame in taking a day off ‘n just do nuffin. ^^

    stay safe

  14. Thuranor says:

    I have not been reading this since you put up the first page, but i was close. let me speak for everyone here when i say i love your comic, it is full of originality and promise. This is my first comment, so i wanted to get that out of the way. i have stayed and checked your comic since the “brief hiatus” and I never lost hope that your comic would come back better than ever.

    Take your time, i’ve waited this long, i am sure i can wait a couple weeks.

  15. Nicole says:

    Huzzah! A note from Ramon! We look forward to the new stuff, good sir!

  16. Palmetto says:

    At your convenience. Quality takes time.

  17. Dave says:

    We still love you, Ramon! I’m glad to hear that your professional endeavors are doing good things for you, and though I would like to hear from you on a more regular basis, I can forgive your absence from Kukuburi because of it.

    Around January, my daughter was diagnosed with cancer, and since she’s limited to her room due to treatment, I’ve been reading Kukuburi to her and various other comics. She really likes the artwork, so we both are anxious to see how the story continues to unfold. But, because of the increased demand on my time, I know exactly what it means to have to leave side-projects and hobbies behind, so I completely sympathize with your situation. We will continue our patient and understanding audience of Kukuburi.

    Thank you!

  18. Becky says:

    WOOOHOOO! I’ve been peeking back at this page hoping there would be a crumb of information. Please, take a breather while organizing. Sounds like you need a vacation. Oi.

  26. Lee Cherolis says:

    Can’t wait! Both Marvel books are on my list at my shop but I’m most excited about a return to Kuku. Bring it on!

  27. bon says:

    SQUEE!

    …Any fanbois or gals wanna take a wild stab at a likely “creative inspiration growing up”? :)

  28. WiddleWade says:

    You’ve contributed to the creation of Deadpool comics, I can’t believe you’re not dancing on the roofs! Ah sorry, my marvel fangirl acting out… looking forward to Kukuburi returning, it’s really one of my fave webcomics, art-wise up on top 3!

  29. Tasia says:

    This totally made my day! :D I’m so happy that you’re able to work with one of your creative inspirations, and I wish you much success.

  30. Hazelaar says:

    Good to hear. : )

  31. Juliana says:

    So happy to hear that things are going great for you in your career, Ramón!
    And also very glad to know Kukuburi will be back soon!

  32. BenNy says:

    Our little firends will return…
    A jolly good time to get rolling again. My sister was bringing new followers of your comic.

  33. maximoritz says:

    Still, the awesomeness of the comic makes up for the frequent hiatus :)

  34. Kookaburra8su says:

    I gotta love the Aussie connection.

    Great to hear how well everything is going. Cheers all round mate!

  35. Pantzar says:

    Yes! Finally! I knew if I returned every once in a while good news would soon show up ^^

  36. Jaysika says:

    This is officially my desktop wallpaper. Which does not sate my burning anticipation at all, but merely heightens it.

  37. Lazy J says:

    Ramon Fantastic Work i just found kukuburi and i love it man i hope your IRL contracts go well for youa nd wish youa llt he best man

  38. Amanda says:

    Yay soo glad more is on its way!! I really really enjoy reading Kukuburi!!! I so enjoy the art style with the the deep colors and strong lines. Its a high light to my day to read your graphic novel!!

  39. palapap says:

    Keep up doing the -good- job, and take more time if you do not have enaugh. No matter if you get to say to kukuburi: «Je partirai. Vois-tu, je sais que tu m’attends.»

  40. Fitz says:

    Ya know, I am SICK of waiting!!! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!! Oh. Wait. Riiiiight…. Ramón does this out of the kindness of his heart. Well then… I will continue to wait and repeat my daily ritual of checking both Kukuburi and BNS for updates. When it happens I’m sure I’ll faint from the pure pleasure of once again seeing my favorite web comics!!!

  41. yLanaRae says:

    Oh, Ramon!!! We’re so excited for you! Congrats on those beautiful comics. Congrats on super secret squirrel project.

    I can’t wait to see more from you. I’m just glad you’re busy!! <3
    YESS!!

  42. Ramón says:

    He’s gonna become an important player come volume 2 ;)

    Enjoy the wine and readin’ !
