The Word Won't Spread, Unless You Spread the Word:
We believe that the boundaries of narrative and illustration for webcomics can be pushed beyond what anyone currently expects.
The Radiant Ones Book 2 is currently on hiatus, while we're working to complete our other comic, Tightrope and work on delivering our Kickstarter pledges. We're sure this announcement comes as little surprise to you. It's always a shame when a webcomic goes on break, and we feel that. We have every intention of returning to TRO, and we'll let you all know when we do. In the mean time, we've got to put our efforts where we're seeing more return: We aren't quitting the comics biz, just shifting to Tightrope on a full-time basis. Thanks for understanding, Citizens. We'll be seeing you.
7•21•2014. Apologies for the neglect, Citizens... but when you see what we've been working on, we think you'll forgive us. Check out our Kickstarter, inspired by our other GN, Tightrope. And let the games begin!

6•9•2014. It's summertime and the living is... well, not so easy, to tell the truth. Citizens, we are weary over here at a recently impoverished TRO HQ, and we've decided to shift our momentum onto the breezier Tightrope for a few months until we get our steam back. So we'll be updating Mondays only for a little bit. Never fear, we're still here! And now, here's Trenches!

4•23•2014. Major plot stuff that we've been waiting to unfold is finally here. As if the war weren't a big enough deal on its own, now Conrad's getting in on the action! At last, the foundation of the politics that become a major factor in the TRO universe.

4•2•2014. Our use of letters continues in this scene, along with a little lettering fun. Real comic lettering is quite an artform (thank goodness for the expediency of fonts!) but there was no way to do this scene but by hand--Rachel's left hand that is!

3•26•2014. In Book 1, we used newspaper articles for most of our world documents. This time around, we're mixing things up with letters and propaganda posters, to capture the flavor of the wartime atmosphere. We've got a different type of document planned for each book!

2•26•2014. It's time to kick things into overdrive. The name of this scene fits too well with the title of our series for it to feel anything but, well, perfect, if we do say so ourselves. Spoiler alert: There's a flashforward in one panel coming soon that Nick couldn't stop smiling when he drew, and I couldn't stop squee-ing about finally seeing brought to life. We're in it for the long haul, Citizens!

1•27•2014. In this scene, it's back to Adamant, and in the next, who knows? We're hopping around all over the world. In the comic, that is--we're staying right here at HQ, delivering TRO straight to you!

1•6•2014. We'll admit it: Things got a little hectic last week as we came back from the holidays. We're on tracka gain now, offering up the start of a new scene in a new locale, featuring a brand new character!

12•23•2013. We'll see you next Monday with the conclusion of Feast of Eels. Merry Xmas, Citizens!
12•2•2013. Eels aren't really an animal that gets used as a sysmbol very often, and I thought that this scene title had a particularly nice ring to it. Don't just think "slippery ocean-snake", think "rich and luxurious". And if that doesn't clue you in to who this scene will feature, well...
Not to totally change the subject or anything, but in honor of Stufflust 2013/Cyber Monday, we're giving a little extra somethin' when you purchase through our store this week: A free, signed TRO poster! No purchase is too small for us to show the love. Hell, if all you want's the poster, you can just buy a tube and we'll stick it right inside! Now's a great time to stock up before the hols, so you can give the gift of Three Point Comics to your near and dear.

11•27•2013. Stop. Cover time.
Nick based this image on a famous painting of a certain Titan whose story might just offer some insight into the book's content...or at least the name of our mysterious city-lifting torch-bearer (his companion is none other than Nathaniel Stone, brave and true as ever).
We won't be going overboard with the Greek stuff, though. In fact, Aries and Atropos is about to take a multinational turn, as we hop around Asia... or what's left of it!

10•21•2013. Look to your right... now freak out! We've missed the heck out of TRO, Citizens, but it was worth it. The books look amazing (they pretty much had to, given all the work we put into their production) and APE 2013 treated us quite well. Now we're back and so is the story.
Aries and Atropos officially launches today, hooray! You'll notice that we're updating two days a week for the time being. This is so we can continue our work on Tightrope without going totally insane. Welcome back, everyone, to the world of The Radiant Ones!!

9•16•2013. Nick and I are proud to be kicking off our second long-form title, delightfully different from our work on The Radiant Ones. Not to worry, though: TRO WILL BE BACK SOON. We just want to give you enough of a taste of Tightrope to get you hooked first!
Tightrope: The Illusion of Height introduces the world of The Circus with More, a traveling show that has as many modern twists as it does dark secrets, set in pre-Depression America. If you love the circus, noir, or hey, just dig the rest of our work at Three Point Comics, then this is the story for you.
9•1•2013. We've been Wirtz+Wirtz for more than two years now, but we're getting ready to take off for our honeymoon at long last. Hope you dig this extra-big update: We'll see you next Monday (unless we get lost in the woods)!

7•8•2013. The Radiant Ones has such an epic scope that, when we first launched three years ago, we worried about how we would ever get to work on our other projects. Thus, the tradition of doing a short between volumes was born. This go-round, we've got Kaleidoscope running over at Three Point Comics (our umbrella brand). It's Nick's (unauthroized) tribute to Ray Bradbury's famous short story, done in sumi ink, acrylic paint and grease pencil, with digital effects mixed in.
Kaleidoscope will run through July, at which point we'll be back... with the launch of another fabulous project! And more TRO to come! In print! And in public! Summer's really ramping up for us, and we're glad to be providing you fine folks with a variety of titles: This is our chance to shine, without have to take a (major) break from TRO. Enjoy!
7•4•2013.It's the 4th of July, here, and we're not only celebrating that but, coincidentally enough, the completion of our first volume of The Radiant Ones. We just put up the last 2 pages, and will be back on Monday with something new.

6•12•2013.What? What was that, Citizens? We couldn't hear you over all the popping champagne corks here at HQ. Oh, "Congratulations"? Well, thanks! Yeah, we're pretty stoked to be launching the final scene of Book 1...as you may have guessed.
But, seriously, we wouldn't be here if it weren't for all of you. And so, we lift our glasses to you, Citizens-All: Here's to the road ahead, from Adamant to parts unknown.
