Awesome.

70 pages takes up through Chapter 3, correct?
Keep at it! :D


Also looking forward to these mysterious author notes. They going to be like the commentary hardly anyone listens to? Of course, yours is likely to draw much more attention >.>

My counting gives 72 normal pages for Prologue to including Chapter 3 (or 75 if you include any specials, like the holidays).

I wonder about the author notes, can't say I ever read them of a book before; so this would be a good opporunity to start ^^.

Keep going Tom, you're doing a great job! I'm looking forward to more updates :D .


(Still, my question earlier, can it be shipped to Belgium?)

I was rounding. 70 comic pages would exclude Holidays and fillers and whatnot, I'm guessing. Those could be bonus pages, but with any luck they'll turn out to be brand new drawings the likes no one as seen before. ^_^

Well, I'd love if Tom also included all bonus pages (redone or not). For me, they are part of the comic and his art :) . But any completely new ones, I would love to have :D .

Prologue - Chapter 3 has 3 holiday specials, the "25,000 Hits" special, and a filler.


I would like to ask though, in the other topic people asked about a signed version, and a "sketch". What is this sketch? Just a few pages of only the lineart?

For those that preorder (when I start preorders, which I don't know when that will be), I'll be signing the books on the first title page, and I might include a little hand-drawn sketch next to the signature, depending on how many there are. Perhaps the first several prorders will get the sketch along with the signature.

The book will be paperback. Hardcover would be quite expensive, you know? :grin: I might make one or two hardcovers for myself and family/friends, but I don't see it ever being released publicly as hardcover.

Bleh, looks like I won't be taking it with me outside the house, then. Paperbacks always end up trashed when I try to take them with me anywhere D:
Oh well. I'll still have it at home. :grin:


So... any idea yet on how preorders will go through? Please don't say Paypal... I dunno how or even if I can get one D:

Can you give us information on where to place our perorders for when you do open preorders?
Aero Blaze on Steam for the time being. Busy with college most the time.

I third (?) that statement. In my case, Paypal would be the best option though.

Just give me the payment options and I'll send you my order...Unless this book will reach store shelves at some point. Which I highly doubt that it will.

I'm aiming towards using a check myself.

I dont think I'll be doing a preorder though, I may just wait until One is open and then order it.
