First Rex order came in from Diamond Distribution.
About 700 books are pre-sold already through the comic stores. We aren’t setting any sales records but you guys helped out a lot. Thanks a million to everyone who ordered. Book is due in stores in a month. I’m printing 3000 books and shipping a couple of thousand back to me in Vancouver. I’ll make sure to take photos so you can see what 2000 graphic novellas look like.
By May I’ll have 4 or 5 different ways for you to get our books and merch as I realize a hell of a lot of you don’t live near or frequent your local comic shop. We’ll have an online store up here in Canada that will ship worldwide, we’ll have another online hook up in the States as well. We’re working on Amazon. It’s all a learning process but we’re getting there. We’re opening as many channels as possible.
Out of the Gutter #4.
My favorite sleazy literature anthology, Out of the Gutter, just released a new volume. It’s a magazine that comes out in book form at 200 pages. Any niche writing journal that survives 4 issues must be doing something right.
This volume comes with MY personal endorsement.
Badass webcomic discovery.
I love finding cool new comics to read. This one found me. Literally. They had taken out an ad on our webcomic site.
The comic is called Generator Project and it can be read over at Fifth Empire Media. It’s crazy good. The artwork reminds me of a cross between 2000AD Simon Bisley, Ash Wood and Bill Sienkiewicz. It just grabbed me immediately.
The artist Simon Andrews and I started emailing back and forth. I though he was British due to the nature of the art and he thought I was American due to the hardcore gunplay in our comics. Turns out we both live in Vancouver, Canada. Weird. We’re going out for beers this Saturday.
Have a great weekend everyone. Thanks again for stopping by.
