UPDATE! – MAJOR CHANGE TO SUPERFOGEYS VOL. 1!!
As you know, I’ve been working hard on putting together the first SuperFogeys trade paperback. This week I finally got all the strips rewritten and re-edited (mostly just to make it a smoother read and not so “strippy”), and I also did some art tweaks here and there (like fixing Dr. Rocket’s hair in the flashbacks to match what T.L. is doing over in Origins).
In the process of doing all that, I discovered that I had a lot more room than I thought I did and so I’m pleased to announce that Vol. 1 now includes all of Chapter 5, “The Redemption of Dr. Rocket”, along with its accompanying bonus story “The Audition” with art by Lucas Turnbloom!
Really, this is what I should have been doing in the first place. Chapters 1-5 tell a complete story in a way that Chapters 1-4 just don’t. Looking ahead, I can also see how Chapters 6-10 will make for nice second volume as they will tell a nice, complete story as well. Later on, Chapters 11-15 will comprise the third volume and complete the trilogy. (Yes, my plans do reach that far, believe it or not.)
UH OH. DOES THIS MEAN THE PRICE JUST WENT UP?
NO! This is the best part–the price is staying the same, even with the additional pages. $19.99 for the Regular Edition, $24.99 for the Artist Edition.
OKAY, SMART GUY, HOW MANY PAGES WE TALKING HERE?
The exact count is still being worked on, but I can tell you it will be over 100 pages. But, honestly, there’s a lot more content than that number suggests. Each page has three strips, and each bonus story is printed as 1 page for every 2. You’re not gonna be breezing through this thing.
LIMITED PRINT RUN
Print run is small on this one, limited to 100 copies. If you haven’t ordered yours yet and are planning on doing so, I’d say now’s the time.
BUBBLES OF LIGHT
Ah, the bubbles of light. Do they ever get old? I think not. In the interest of helping out both the new and old fan, I give you handy links to previous Bubbles of Light appearances:
And, of course, who can forget this Bubbles of Light detour. (Follow that one through a little to find out why Swifty doesn’t have his mask on here.)
On Tuesday, a damaged Tangerine gets a little help from Uncle Sam. On Thursday we catch back up with Tangerine and his sons, the Healer and Captain Emo. (Not a good week for Tangerine haters, apparently.)
