Previews, Surveys and More
Hi there! It's me.
Just thought I'd drop a quick note as things progress on the production end for the LOST WORK OF WILL EISNER. Things are proceeding apace -- aside from a couple of tiny hiccups in the proofing process -- and we're still on track to all of the books in hand by the end of July. We're doing deep knee-bends now in preparation for receiving the shipment.
As of this week, our book is in PREVIEWS magazine, available for order by comic shops worldwide with order code JUL161747! So please, tell your local shop about the wonderful book you helped make. Print out one of these guys and bring it along! As a small press, Locust Moon is buried deep in the back of PREVIEWS, so it's very easy to miss, even for diligent shop owners. It'll be out in comic shops on September 7th, and bookstores on September 13th. But you guys should all have your copies in hand in August!
I'm sending out backer surveys tonight for all reward tiers. Remember that we're shipping throughout August, so if your address is going to change in the next couple of months, please reach out to us and let us know where you will be, and when.
Happy summer everyone! I hope you're all eating lots of popsicles and wearing plenty of sunscreen. Thanks as usual for being the book-backing rock stars that you all are. We are so eager to get these rewards into your hands.
P.S. Around the end of the month I'm planning a second pilgrimage up to Western Mass to visit Denis Kitchen, Eisner's agent, editor and publisher -- and the keeper of the entire Will Eisner archive. I'll try to dig up some more obscure Eisner goodies for your eager and discerning eyes!
