Howdy there, Scream Freaks! This week, we think we finally gotta face facts and not be too hard on ourselves. For the first time in the history of our show, we might not get an episode out by our monthly deadline. How could somethin’ like this happen you ask? Well, most of you regular Scream Freaks who visit the site have kept up with our weekly work drama, but we’ll recap for the newbies.

When we first kicked off this animated rodeo, we were always a year ahead of what we were releasin’ to keep y’all fed with regular content on a monthly basis. While you were watchin’ episode 11, we were already animatin’ episode 21 while preparin’ the script and art for episode 31 at the same time. This routine of multitaskin’ worked liked clockwork for a talkin’ heads show with characters anchored to a table, but we got more ambitious over time and started lettin’ our ghoulish gang run wild through the Crosslands. Obviously, more action means  a lot more work animation-wise, and we dedicated many more hours designin’ and animatin’ new characters and places for them to wreak havoc in. Little bit at a time, this epic undertakin’ became more and more complicated and ate away at that year’s worth of cushion we had for any unforeseen circumstances and hiccups that might throw us behind schedule.

While our fanatic series of Bruce Campbell themed vids were the start of our schedule slips, that final fight in our Season Three finale took even more cushion away from us, and this past season with Full Moon Empire ate up the rest. Now, we’re animatin’ our episodes as we go and releasin’ them as soon as they’re done. To keep up the pace we’ve set for ourselves and meet the expectations we’ve given y’all, we’re spendin’ every second we can spare workin’ on Screaming Soup! and only want to produce a quality show that never fails to deliver comic book adventures, slapstick laughs, and insightful reviews of B-movies we think y’all should know about. It’s not like we’re paranoid y’all are gonna get riled up over this and bash us for bein’ late, but we just wanna let you know we’re always workin’ on the show and to bear with us. Never forget we’re folks doin’ this for no money while workin’ full time jobs and raisin’ families. So, the next episode with Homicidal Homemaker and the Mummy and the Monkey may be ridin’ in a little late, but we promise you it’s gonna be worth the wait, Scream Freaks!

To divert from all that melodrama, we want to thank Gori from the Horror Addicts for givin’ us this boner fan art below that now graces our fridge, and fellow horror hosts, The Angry Bros., for helpin’ scream the word around ’bout our show with an article spotlightin’ us as a true horror hostin’ gem everybody should check out. We appreciate it, partners, and encourage our fans to check out their article (HERE) as well as their YouTube channel (HERE). We also share our two cents on more horror comics that have come out recently in our Sequential Slime blog, and anyone who cares to hear us go voicebox to voicebox with a podcaster doin’ Sly Stallone impressions, be sure to visit our friends over at the Bearded Ones Podcast and give a listen at 8 minutes into their program. The judge is none other than our good buddy Jason Underwood who played Toxie this past season, and was the one who invited us to the showdown.
