a very very small preview of the proof, which I received in the mail today, courtesy of Sir Dylan Williams, Lord and Master of the Sparkplug Manor:
Squint your damnedest, and lemme know what you think
i think I WANNNIT!
OMG it’s a #1 Issue! I’m buying 4 of them and I’m going to poly bag them with backing boards and file them away in big white boxes along with my issue of Cable #1 and all 4 alternate covers of X-men #1 illustrated by Jim Lee
Looks fukken amazing. You’ll win a million awards!
holy shit… it’s ON!!
ps: how long did it take the printer to turn around the proofs and copies? i’m getting nervous about time running out!
Also, i couldn’t help but admire the stunning, incredibly well rendered brickwork and skillful black filling in pic #3!
awesome! i’ll never forget the reading you did for it at the oakland library where you did sound effects during the fight scene! BRILLIANT! Congrats Hellen! Looking forward to getting this.
Ryan, you better submit that shit hell of soon. The proof was a special order so it came to me much faster than is typical (I requested it for APAture and I think Dylan had to pay more for it). As for the comic, it hasn’t even been printed yet; they begin printing on Monday, and you know I turned the comic in a while ago (though, you’ve gotta factor in time for proofreading and layout and such, which you and Evan will have already completed by the time you turn Electric Ant in). But generally, I hear it takes at LEAST a month to turn around, soooooo you better hurry
Can’t wait to get my meat-hooks on this.
holy CRAP so sad I can’t make it to APE this year to chill with you and the Bang Gang…can I send you some crispy five dollar bills and get a copy of this before they’re all gone???
i want to puke with envy. she’s a beaut.
Hellz YEAH i can’t wait to have one!
me want some jin& jam. now. when can i order off sparkplug for some copies?
