We're happy to say that Volume 2 of Leaving Megalopolis is officially on.
After a lot of discussion and thought, Gail and I decided it would be best to continue the Megalopolis story at Dark Horse Comics. Dark Horse published the retail edition of volume one and they were great to work with. You might've seen the Comic Book Resources interview with Gail and I announcing volume 2. If not, here's the link.
The interview has some info on the new book to hopefully whet your appetite. It was a decision on which we went back and forth, and the discussions with DH were not brief. In the end we knew going through a publisher would benefit the book, not the least of which is freeing us up to concentrate on getting the story done. A regular schedule will help with that, and also allow us to tell a longer, deeper story. The Kickstarter experience was wonderful. We appreciated all the support and hope it will continue as the saga of Megalopolis goes forward. And neither Gail or I are done with the Kickstarter community, I'm sure. Leaving Megalopolis Vol 2: Surviving Megalopolis will be a six issues series. We've already started work, and in fact I just finished drawing the first issue's 22 pages. It's fun, deliciously frightening stuff; Gail and I are excited to continue the story.
The book hits stands in January of 2016; please let your local comic shop know you're looking forward to it so they're sure to order it. We hope you'll stay with us on this dark ride.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL-
The last stretch goal of Volume 1, the bonus story, is done too.
It's an eight page story telling some of the sadistic speedster Fleet's backstory. It's being colored and lettered now, and when ready it'll be available at Comixology for free. And for those of you hoping for a DRM-free version (PDF,etc), that site now offers that option too. When the story is up on Comixology, there will be another update.
Lastly, another big THANK YOU from Gail and I. We've said it before but not enough, how much your support (and patience) has been appreciated. Seriously, there definitely would have been no Leaving Megalopolis without you.
