Four years ago today, Cranky Octopus went live. Crazy. In that time the site's been home to some incredibly talented creators and some really fun comics. Our readers have always been supportive and enthusiastic and we can't thank you enough for that. This has been a really fun ride for us. Sadly, the time has come to close this little chapter of comic niftiness and Cranky Octopus will no longer be posting new comics. But fret not, friends, the existing content will still be here and several of our comics will be continuing on with new stories on other websites.

So where can you find everyone now?

 Kostmeyer: Vigil | Rocketbot | deviantArt

 Vale: AngieCrafts on tumblr and deviantArt | Valemeister on deviantArt | Rocketbot

Gene: Rocket & Bounce | Rocketbot | deviantArt

JD: JD Makes Comics | deviantArt | tumblr | Rocketbot

Dan: The Committee Building | tumblr | deviantArt

Lee: A.D.A.M. | Rocketbot | deviantArt

Nick: Blue Blaster | Rocketbot | deviantArt

A very big, very heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported the site over the years and continues to enjoy our comics. This isn't the end, just the next chapter. We hope you'll join us.

Oh snap, you guys. New Rocket and Bounce story?

Well, kind of. "That Acrobat guy" wrote it, so it'll be a little different -- but still good, I'd like to think.

Speaking of good things, the art here is by Nick Foster, who should be familiar to the Cranky faithful by now. He drew issue 23 of Acrobat (the Plot Hole one) and a couple shorts for the Private Files of the Fowl. Dude gets around.
