About a month ago we had a bad DDOS attack that put all my web sites down because they share the same server. It was sort of a perfect storm, and due to some mix-ups and miss-communications, we did not have a good backup on hand. The web site was long overdue for a redesign anyway, and I really wanted to switch to a Word Press theme because I love updating Bearmageddon (my other web comic) and I like the simple layout. Axe Cop was designed in ignorance and rushed together. We have learned a lot since we first created it. Unfortunately some content will be lost forever, like the forums (which were rarely used anyway) and the comments. But we have the old site and are working on bringing back as much as we can. The important parts (the comics) are still with us, and that is what mattered to me most. Hopefully, as the TV show launched only days after the new web site, a new group of fans will be able to come in and begin new interactions and continue the community we had built before.
