He is working on the new, food and cooking-related webcomic with writer and chef Kat Vapid.
"The big thing is that I'm on the precipice of launching my first weekly free webcomic, possibly in one week," Kelly wrote on his blog. "One week I say.
"That's how serious I am. It's called Cocotte. It's a frank, humorous, and often soul-crushing look into the world of cuisine and the professional kitchen environment, as well as a love letter to life in Minneapolis.
"I'm not going to waste your time: this comic is going to be good, I promise. Good like a red wine-braised lamb shank with polenta. More VERY soon. Preview art and such."
'Cocotte' is the name of a cooking dish and also another word for 'prostitute'.
Kelly is best known for his collaboration with Brian Wood on Local, and is currently working on the forthcoming Saucer Country with Paul Cornell.
