When Teal needs to change electives, she joins a choir that's just as out of place as she is.

Oh, I just remembered that you guys were starting a spinoff in December. Any progress on that?
I can't believe it's over! I was pretty much screeching during the last few pages (joyful screeching, though). You have created such a (literally) colourful cast of characters, and I have fallen hopelessly in love with them. I look forward to the continuation of their story! Thank you for creating this for us.

Well, you've made it this far...
Hey everybody!

My name's Kellan, and I've done a whole lot of writing for Out of Key.

Some of you might not have even known there was another writer on this comic, unless you've been around a while and seen me post occasionally (and that one guest comic we'll just never talk about). But even though I haven't talked with you all much, I've read every single comment and want to thank you all from the bottom of my fleshy blood-pumper. Reading feedback on your work is just the best feeling in the world, and even though there aren't legions of you, it means just as much. Thank you, so very much, for engaging with us.

So, when Kim was talking about wrapping up Out of Key, I was actually super sad. Even though only a week or so had taken place in the comic, that week had been stretched over 3 years for us. That gives you a lot of time to think about and play around with the characters in your head, and frankly I just wanted to keep going. Even though Kim created the characters and setting, we've collaborated on the plot and character developments from very early on, and by now these characters feel as much mine as hers. I talked with her and she agreed: We liked the characters, and we weren't done with them yet.

Originally, we were going to just keep going with Out of Key. But the more we brainstormed, the more we realized that our ideas were outgrowing the scope of the comic. Our best ideas didn't really fit the premise, and the parts about choir were starting to feel like filler between the story we really wanted to tell.

So we're shifting focus.

Starting in December, we're going to launch a new comic focusing on Teal, Zoey, Sunny, and Perla a few years down the line from Out of Key. We aren't ready to share any details beyond that right now, because what would be the fun in spilling all the beans at once? Safe to say, we're buzzing with anticipation, and we won't just be disappearing for 6 whole months. Pretty soon, we'll start posting odds and ends over at Kim's personal blog, hopedoodles.tumblr.com, to keep your appetite whet until the end of the year.

Thanks again for reading all these years, and we'll see you soon.

@Hopelessidiot: Ah, ok, that makes sense.

@Bizkit: Hi Bizkit!!

It's illegal to lie on attendance sheets because schools receive money for each day a student attends class! And Miss Lil has been saying that her full class has been attending when they're not.

Teachers get in big trouble for this!!

@Bizkit: The morning announcements at Soggy Bottom aren't exactly well put together ;) (It's Toads!)

I'm starting to think this class isn't very well managed.

Umm, is the team Toads or Frogs?

@Hopelessidiot: That seems rather weird to me. Why couldn't the sports teams stay an hour later and/or have more practice sessions instead of starting early and making you miss class?

How is it illegal? I know it's wrong and unethical to let your students do whatever they want during your classtime, but I don't see how it's illegal. Can someone enlighten me?
@trrmanning172: I don't know how to musical, but I do know how to SAY it. XD
I LOVE ALL THESE PRECIOUS CHARACTERS, THEY WILL BE THE END OF ME
