It’s been a long time in the making, but today’s page marks the ending of Chapter One! It’s been a pretty exciting run so far – both for myself as a webcomics “veteran,” and Delade who is brand new to all of this. We’ve heard quite a bit of good feedback so far, and we’re really excited to bring you Chapter Two very soon!
Unlike our plans for the first issue, Chapter Two’s print release will probably happen about halfway into the online updates. I’m more eager to keep the story on track than to rush the book. The entire chapter has already been written, sketched, and inked — all that’s left is to add color. I created the cover several months ago and it’s been killing me not to post it early, but you’ll be able to view it very soon!
Lastly, I want to express my thanks to everyone for reading our story so far. We hope you’ve enjoyed it, and we can’t wait to bring you all the new stuff we’ve been working on all this time.
The issue 1 books are finally on the way! Wahoo! We received our proof copy today (after about three days of chasing people around at the post office since it got lost the first time around) and this book looks awesome, as you can clearly see in these gloriously off-color phone photos and one-handed video preview:
The ever-important front cover by which to judge a book.
The pages are super shiny and bright! Everything looks so crisp.
Even the back cover looks nice.
After fixing one very minor error and sending the files back to the printer, the book is all set! I’ve placed an order for a box of copies for those who want their books signed and sketched in, but it will also be available as an ebook and through IndyPlanet. At the moment, the estimated street date is April 15th, but this is possibly subject to change.
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for your patience and support during the whole production process. Delade and I originally intended to launch the book alongside the online launch, but due to 2013 being a neverending string of awful that didn’t quite work out as planned. We’re both extremely pleased with how the book came out, and can’t wait to share it with everyone. I hope you’ll think it was worth the wait, too.
