Long live the king. I've received the first copies of Kings Of The Road from the printers in China. The printers always send a few copies of the final book before they pack the cases onto the container and they begin the 3 week journey to LA/Long Beach harbor.
I'm very happy with this book. There were some minor color problems with the cover, but that's about it. The size, the weight and the paper stock are all exactly as I'd wanted. They should be here soon, so look for them in San Diego next month.
Sorry for the long delay in posting. I've had a pretty demanding month. I've finished up Vernaculis and got it off to the printer and have approved the color proofs, so it looks like there's a good chance that we'll have copies at Comic Con next month. It won't actually be available for sale from the usual sources until the end of August. I think it's pretty good for a sequel. However, I think I've exhausted the material and can't really imagine revisiting the genres, so don't expect another follow up. There is quite a bit of material that didn't make the cut, a few montsers, the unfinished chimp calendar and a variety of other pieces that didn't seem to fit. I'm sure those pieces will see print at some point, but probably not in the same format as Chromaphile and Vernaculis. These are few pieces that did make it in.
