Actually, he's BEEN doing a comic for five years, but in print rather than web. In fact, it's just coming up on the last issue.

He just doesn't promote the darn thing!

See also isocomic.

Well dammit. I only find out about it five years after he starts and now I see I can't even get issues 1-3. I stopped reading his journal not long after the end of TCM because there never seemed to be any updates about any upcoming projects, and for some reason I just haven't checked up on him since then.

Now kicking myself for missing out. Wahhhh. Oh well, thanks for the clarification.

cheers,
Phil

Oh, hey, great. What issue numbers does this collection cover? Don't want to wind up with duplicates if I order the remaining ones from MLD.

Also, d'you know if Vince gets any of the $$ from sales of this collection? I ask because it's not listed or linked anywhere on his site that I could see (otherwise I would have just picked it up).

cheers,
Phil

I don't know the exact details, but I'm sure he gets royalties.

The collection contains "Issue 0" through #4, plus a bonus story.

Re: I have plenty of issues 5-9...(grin)
Yeah, but I'd be missing out on opening story! That won't do.

Gneech, however, provided me with a link to a collection:

http://www.sofawolf.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=112

Does Vince get a cut of the $$ from sales of this? If so, I'll just pick that up and then get the remaining issues from you. (What issue numbers does the collection encompass?)

cheers,

Re: I have plenty of issues 5-9...(grin)
The graphic novel covers 1-5 plus a bonus story, and then 6-9 are in comic book form at http://www.merchandisemaven.com. Vince does get $$$.

Re: I have plenty of issues 5-9...(grin)
Is it 1-5? My bad, I thought it stopped at 4. (I haven't actually read my copy yet!)

I read the rough draft, the final draft, and the original print comic. I think I can be forgiven for not having read the collection yet. ;P

Thanks, MLD! I'll pick it up and then 6-9. Wait, is there going to be a second collection? Gneech says the series is almost over.

cheers,

Re: I have plenty of issues 5-9...(grin)
There will be a 2nd graphic novel, but the earliest I see that being completed is FC 2011 (or to be determined).

I only have a few copies of 6, and plenty of 7-9. 10 will come out at Anthrocon 2010.

Well, there WERE no solid upcoming projects! I tried to collaborate with some artists, but nothing panned out, so I started this comic in...I believe mid-2004.

I think everyone's answered all your other questions. For what it's worth, most of issues 1 - 5 (the ones in the collection) are online here
http://www.hirezfox.com/isoarchives/
The collection does contain a full-length bonus story that's not online or anything else.

Since I'd like at least a full year of sales for Issue 10, I'm thinking Volume 2 won't be ready until AC 2011 earliest, or maybe FC 2012.

I think I'll just start following your journal again so I don't miss any more updates. :)

Ordering volume 1 shortly. Once I have that in hand I'll decide whether I want to wait for a Volume 2 or just pick up 5-10. Chances are it'll be the latter; I never was very good at the whole patience thing.

cheers,
Phil
