After three weeks of solid work and eight days of almost sleepless nights, I am finally able to make this official announcement: Koobismo.com - the new home of Marauder Shields and other awesome stuff created by yours truly and his team - will have its official opening this Thursday evening, January 24th. Fun will be had, singing may occur, drinks allowed, but due to the virtual nature of the whole shabang, you will have to bring your own. Whether we'll show up in force or in a smaller, more intimate group, Koobismo.com is launching. I'm already wearing a party hat.

You have no idea how awesome it is to finally say all of that out loud! I promised myself to not make any announcements until I finished the postwork on the last frame of MS Episode 41, just to be sure that no further delays will be encountered on the way (as our regular readers know, I'm known as Koobs the Atrocious Delayer in at least 3 alternative universes, including the one where dolphins took over San Francisco). Alas, last bits of virtual paint have been slapped across the comic five minutes ago, leaving me to my organizational and team wrangling duties. Aside from being a generally cool addition to our little series (or so I believe), the new episode drops a few important clues about a few important things, so be sure to keep your eyes open and your minds receptive.

I don't want to say too much about the upcoming attractions, as I'm trying to leave at least a few surprises for y'all, but allow me to tell you that this is indeed a major milestone for myself, our team, Marauder Shields and... For things yet to come. We'll start on a bit more humble note, trying to get our footing first, but our long-term goals range from ambitious to arrogantly devious. Hell, if you'd told me about any of these developments a year ago, I wouldn't believe a single word. In a very twisted and almost ethereal way, Marauder Shields reignited a flame of hope in an important part of my life that was slowly drying away, crushed by, well, said life itself. There will be time to tell you all more about that, but this isn't it, not yet. Need to pour myself a glass of scotch and put on my best fluffy slippers first.

Two more quick thingies before I go and lay down my head on a pillow for the next three hours. Firstly, special thank yous to all of you who took part in our little community video project. It came out brilliantly and I will be proudly presenting it during the launch, displaying what a diverse, outspoken and relentlessly awesome community we have become. Second of all, just to remind you of the information that has been circling around these here parts for a while: even after the launch of Koobismo.com, Marauder Shields will continue to be published here as well, albeit with a small lag. You'll have to get to the site for our one-offs, comedy pieces, interviews and storytelling articles, though. The site will become our new headquarters, finally giving some space to my team members, something that operating on a DA account seriously impaired.

That's it for now, folks. Two more days before K-Day.

Love you all.

Koobs out.

So...what time is it in the US? Because I suspect this is what time zone Koobs is talking about? :)

Well I'm in Canada (EST-5), so I can't really answer that. Besides, there are different time zones in the US, and I don't know about Koob's time zone.

I can't wait to bring 2 things: One bottle of ašai berry-flavoured Fuze and a small bowl of Tostitos.

Only then will I enter Koobismo.com for the first time.

Wow I'm going to be having a pretty full next few days then; 24th Koobismo Day, 25th My Birthday (Turning 33 by the way), 26th Australia Day. Good thing I'm working other wise I'd probably be in hospital with alcohol poisoning!!!

Looking forward to the next issue and especially looking forward to the launch. I may even buy champagne.

aaaahhhhhhhh awesome!! Take your well-deserved nap! So I guess, Thursday it shall be? :) episode 41 must have been one hell of a challenge if it took even you this much time - can't wait to see the result. Also, I think it might be a good idea to link the deviantart pages to each episode on the new website, for we could then easily read through other comments and stuff ;) although koobismo.com shall be my #1 website from now on, I think it would play out nicely to be able to read what other people on deviantart say and said about a certain episode, you know, add much to the feeling of us being an open community... I'm sure the page is going to consist of pure awesomeness. I would pay to see the story of the alternative universe where dolphins took over San Francisco, though... :D
Now that you have two days of free time *coughcough* - I haven't yet figured out which timeschedule you're following ... jeff said the announcement was 'today' yesterday evening, while you posted this 1 1/2 hours ago - but don't you live in Poland? So, when IS the 24.01. in your opinion?^^ :D

He lives in Poland but works for US company. I guess "today" means "when I wake up" or "before I'm going to sleep" in such circumstances.
