Digital Editions On The Way!

Posted by Locust Moon Press (Creator)
Hey gang!

Your old friend and humble Locust Moon representative Josh O'Neill here. I come bearing gifts.

THE LOST WORK OF WILL EISNER is finished! Fully laid out, gorgeously designed by Peter and Maria Hoey of Coin-Op Studios, out of our hot little hands and being prepared by our printer to go to press shortly. Trust me when I say we spared no expense on production, with a full cloth cover and foil stamping, and the interiors printed on high grade wood-free uncoated paper. It's truly going to be a beautiful book. Thus far we're on target for our scheduled July delivery date of the print editions -- and are very pleased to be delivering the digital editions right now!

Keep an eye on your inbox -- if you have a digital edition coming to you, you should receive it tonight. You are the very first people, outside those of us working on the book, to see it in its finished version.

Please let us know what you think -- and let us know if you catch any errors or typos! There may still be a few days to catch problems before they see print.

As per usual -- thank you all for your extraordinary support, and thank you for loving great comics and great cartoonists. We literally couldn't do this stuff without you.

      Is there supposed to be a black space under the Jumbo Comics images on the pdf of page 2 of Denis Kitchen's Uncle Otto intro ?

      Hi all! If you're having trouble viewing any of the images, it's likely because they're not showing up properly in the dropbox viewer. If you've downloaded and are having the same problems, please let us know!

      Is it me or do half the photos get repeated three times, shrunken, across the top of the space they're in? Page 12 is a repeat _and_ negative. Page 11, page 4, too.

      Yay! Can't wait!
