Daggers Drawn Goes to Print!

Posted by Kevin Kallaugher (Creator)

Today Daggers Drawn headed to the printers! It was quite an undertaking to complete the book in time and there wasn't much sleep in the waning days, but the project is well worth it. The book contains over 300 images and looks beautiful. 

I attached a sneak peek at the cover. With luck I will have copies in hand by the end of April and will be sending them your way in early May.

Now I am preparing the iPad app, working on the book launch party and ordering prints for backers. There is still lots to do. Books will be available to the general public soon. I will keep you posted on news!

Keep well and spread the word!

      Hrrrmmm .... I wonder whether there's a significance regarding the row you have alloted your "opponents"? Should one be pleased or p***ed as politician if one were banished to the backbenches? You might want to sidestep and say "For instance, Muammar certainly wouldn't care" ... but don't I remember a certain drawing from not too long ago, where you depicted the netherworld (one of your best ever, if I may say so)? Inquiring minds want to know.

      Apart from that: Looking forward to early may !!
