Christmas is approaching! They’ve already put up the decorations in the shopping streets around here, and so it’s high time that we add a few new items to our online shops for you guys! Our first new product is this awesome t-shirt you can see on the pictures on the right. It is for the air traffic controllers among our fans and reads:
Of course you can also wear it without being an ATC. The design is quite different to all our previous t-shirts, but from what we have learned over the years, it seems when it comes to t-shirts, people prefer cool to funny and simple to complicated. So Mike and I decided to try a slightly different route with our t-shirts from now on.
Coming soon (in time for Christmas):
– A new Christmas Card
– The brand-new Martin Leeuwis book “Going Up, Sir!” including a lot of new Chicken Wings comic strips!
So stay tuned!
We’re actively working on a bunch of projects while Stefan is here with me in Vegas. One of them is to add different new shirts to the shop. But we need to get rid of some inventory first. So we decided to reduce the shirts we are thinking of not continuing to almost nothing. They’re practically free!!!
Take anvantage of this unique offer because those shirts will now be a “limited edition” item as well! The offer runs until we run out of those shirts and it’s only available for the USA shop (where we have way more shirts than in Europe)
One thing though: As we run out, not all shirts will be available in all sizes anymore. When you try to put a shirt in the cart that’s no longer in stock, you will get an indication of 3 red stars next to you order and a red/pink-ish box on top explaining we’re out. But if you ignore it, the shop will actually let you order the shirts because usually we restock as soon as we’re out. Don’t order any shirts that don’t exist anymore please!
Yay! It’s fixed! Sorry for the inconvenience!
Now go ahead and post away!!
I heard the forum is broken and I can’t get in there myself either right now.
The problem I have is that my website administrator, also known as my brother, also known as Stefan, also known as the artistic talent behind Chicken Wings, is on vacation until Sunday. I have no passwords and/or “knowledge” to even begin troubleshooting this problem. (I spent most of my life learning how to operate helicopters and neglected ever aquiring any computer skills).
So, PLEASE be patient! We’ll have the forum up again as soon as possible!
We’re having another contest!
It seems like fire season is starting to spool down for me and I might have more time for Chicken Wings yet once again. Not a new idea but an old favorite of mine is having contests and it’s been a while.
So let’s have another one!
Ok, here is what we were thinking of doing this time:
You guys come up with a great line to help sell our Chicken Wings and we pick the best line.
The winner can pick an item out of our shop.
Who’s in? Check out more details in our forum!
More great news for the iPhone wielding crowd amongst you! We proudly present the first Chicken Wings computer game! It’s available for your iPhone or iPod Touch, and you can get it in the Apps Store HERE.
It is our first dabble in computer games, so we went for a very simple game concept, which turned out to be extremely addictive! The game basically works just like “whack a mole”, but with Chicken Wings characters instead of moles. Try to hit Chuck and Hans to gain points, hit Julio to extend your time, but don’t hit Sally or she will take away your coffee (life)!
The game was developed by Patoing mobile media, the same people who helped us with the comic strip app. Unlike the comic strip sampler, the game is not free, but we set it at the lowest possible price.
Check it out! And don’t forget to give us your feedback in our forum!
Chucks quest to build his own F4U Corsair goes on. And he’s taking all the right steps.
Or is he?
Happy 4th of July for those of you who celebrate their independence today!
Check it out! You can now download Chicken Wings on your iPhone or iPod touch! Get it through the App Store at: http://itunes.com/apps/chickenwingssampler
We’ve created this free sampler with some of the strips from our website to as a sort of a test run. So if you are a fan, please download it, write us a (good) review and/or share your thoughts in our forum! We’ve teamed up with this sweet little company here and in the not-so-distant future are planning to publish some paid content, like games and our books for the iPhone. So, check it out and let us know if we’re on the right track!
I will be in Mexico until May 12th. But not to party it up, I am working. My boss has two Hueys down there and we are fighting fires with the Mexicans believe it or not. I get to fly for “The Red Team” (see my posts in the forum).
Not much should change on the Chicken Wings side. The shop will be run by my lovely assistant and Stefan will keep an eye on everything else. If you have any issues, requests, ideas, and such, please direct them to Stefan or you can email Heidi under firstname.lastname@example.org.
She’ll pass on any important infos to me as much as she can.
I’ll try to stay in touch, but if I can’t I’ll see y’all in May!
