Dream-Quest Advance Copies!

1 comment

I’ve just received the first actual advance copies of The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath! It's a hefty 184 page hardcover with spot UV and smythe-sewn binding, which feels like it’ll still cause SAN loss if you find it on a dusty bookshelf thirty years from now.

I only have a few advance copies, but I’m sending the first copies out to international backers, and I’ll send the remainder out as I receive them. Everyone will get their copies before the books arrive in stores in late March. If you know someone who’s interested in ordering their own copy of the book between now and then, they can order it from their local comic store that uses Diamond Comic Distributors.

Attached are some photos of the cover, the inside-covers map, and a few pages. Thanks for all your help in making this book a reality! I'll be posting soon with more art and the long-awaited poster-map.

      Got the book in the post tonight, after the usual 2 weeks of travel-plus-customs, in perfect condition, looks just great!
      Thanks for all the work, and special note on the very careful packaging!
