To the Printer!
The files, after long, long last, are finally off to the printer. We expect the proofs back in short-order, and from there it's a matter of final checks and getting the presses running.
So, with that in mind, sharing two more images with y'all.
The Dust Jacket
This is the actual, complete, full dust jacket that adorns the basic trade:
The Annotated Process
And this is the cover to the annotated script book:
I'd be remiss if I didn't take the opportunity to mention two campaigns, one here on Kickstarter and one on Indiegogo.
The first, on Kickstarter, is for Vito Delsante's comic, STRAY. He's shooting for 8K to bring his creator-owned work to print. I've known Vito for years, now, and I'd love to see him bring this project to fruition.
The second, on Indiegoge, is for Pere Perez's SHAOLIN MUTANTS. It's a gentle, sensitive coming-of-age-story about a kung-fu fighter in a world of dinosaurs.
Yes, you heard that right. Kung-fu and dinosaurs.
Pere was the artist on Eric Trautmann's and my run on Action Comics. He's a terrific artist, a terrific guy, and Shaolin Mutants is a labor of love for him. Please consider tossing him some coin.
Those of you who follow comics may have heard about the unfortunate events in creator Steve Niles' life recently. The very quick version is that he and his wife, Monica Richards, have been flooded out of their home outside of Austin, Texas.
There are a couple of ways you can help. There's an eBay auction, the proceeds of which will go to helping Steve et al rebuild; your can also purchase some of Steve and Monica's work from their respective webstores. Steve's is here; Monica's you'll find here.
As ever, as always, thanks for your patience and support.
