Books are complex things ...
As many of you may know, Alien and I have been working on getting some print books out for Chasing the Sunset. About a week and a half ago, we finally got our hands on the first prints, whee!
The books we have printed now are 44 page issues containing 40 pages of the comic and 4 bonus pages, all printed in full colour in a magazine format comic (8x10.5" which is almost A4).
I was just about to link the online store page for that for everybody so anybody who wanted one could buy one and ... found out that the publisher (Ka-Blam, a comics print-on-demand service) had changed their formats.
Now, instead of the stiff cardstock covers we wanted, all of the issues will have flexible glossy covers instead (except for the ones we'd already printed).
Our original plan had been to release a number of 44 page issues and then combine each five of those into a 220 page perfect bound book. Now we want to know whether we should still make the smaller issues.
So yeah .. let us know. If enough people want the 44 page issues, we will continue making them and the first one will go on sale tomorrow with a second to follow in august. If not, we will only release the bigger books and the first one will come out next year around June.
Note: it isn't that much extra effort for us to make the 44 page ones on top of the bigger ones.
