We hope you are all having a wonderful Fall. We are hip deep in producing the series. We're wrapping issue 3 this week. That being said, we have a few updates.
First off, thank all of you again for supporting us. Because of you spreading the word, the book has really started to gain some momentum and is going to a 3rd printing for issue 1 and 2. This is all possible because you all believed in us. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for taking a chance on us. We hope you are happy with the outcome. We wouldn't be here if not for you.
Secondly, we have decided to extend the story from 5 issues to 6 issues. The last issue was originally meant to be a bit over-sized but now we are splitting it and extending it to give Zach some room for his beautiful art and to extend on some of the scenes and character beats we love giving you.
What does that mean to all of you? Well, that depends. For those of you enjoying the series who have already received your cool rewards from us, you get to hopefully enjoy the series for a little longer. For those of you who ordered the 5 issues from us this impacts you. You will now receive all 6 issues of the initial arc. But, obviously that will cause us to have to send those once the 6th issue finally comes out. We hope that is OK.
The final thing is, we are running a bit slower than we initially anticipated. We hope you will be patient with us. Our first three issues have been over-sized which has fudged a few of our deadlines. Issue 3 is 28 pages long for goodness sake (along with a 27 in the 1st and 25 in the 2nd)! So Zach has basically drawn close to an extra issue over the course of the first 3. (Blame the writer on that one. :) ) We hope you can be patient with us as we work hard to give you the best book we can. And wait until you see the battle scene in issue 3. It is phenomenal.
We are really trying to deliver something that will stand the test of time and is our best effort. That can take time on the writing and art end. We do promise that this book is coming. Issue 3 looks to be coming in October and 4, 5 and 6 will follow bi-monthly after that. So, those waiting on the 5 issue pack will end up waiting until the Spring of next year. Hopefully the quality of the book and the extra issue will satisfy you! We promise everyone will receive their books as soon as we can send them.
Thank you all again for the support. Please stick with us as we work hard on this series that we care very much about. We're doing our best to be transparent on our end. If you have any questions for us please let us know.
We hope to have more exciting news very soon. For those paying attention, the word initial was used to describe our first arc. What's that mean? More soon.
Mike, Zach, and Austin
