Straw Man Issue Zero is a new project completed between issue 10 and 11 as means of getting some new work published while I'm producing issue 11. The book contains two brand new short Straw Man stories "Scene of the Crime" and "An Inside Job" that help fill in some of the back story as well as two previously published shorts "Bad Penny" and "The Last Laugh". As a bonus I'm also including a reprint of the Straw Man origin story "A Moment of Truth" which was later incorporated into the Special Edition of Straw Man #1. It's a total of 29 comic book pages, 2 essay pages, and an order form for the United Fanzine Organization.
The issue is complete and is waiting to be printed (June 15th) and will be ready for shipping shortly after that. To pre-order send 5 dollars via paypal to email@example.com. If you would like a personalized Straw Man head sketch please include an additional 5 dollars with your order. I'm ready and willing to take on larger commission pieces. Please email if interested.
Why am I not kickstarting this? This is not a major release from Dim-Light Graphics. This issue will be limited to 100 copies to it's first printing. I'm printing as many copies as I think I can move reasonably fast. I have no intention of including these stories into the graphic novel (It may eventually turn up in and Odds & Ends collection but that's way later down the line).
I'm still working on getting the Trade collections of issues 1-8 up to snuff. This will be the next release from Dim-Light Graphics, which will be available through Ka-blam. Our next major Kickstarter campaign will be for issue 11. I'm optimistic that I'll be able to get that issue done by the end of the year.
Thank you for your support.
