Well that was fast! In just two nights of work, I have the initial layouts for Attack of the War-Cats complete!
Including the 9 pages that Sue is currently working on with a view towards starting on the web November 1st, and a six-page bonus story (“Thunder’s Last Stand”) drawn by our usual colormiester Richard Wyatt, it comes to a healthy 74 pages in the same double-height format we’re using for the second edition of Childproof the Unicorns.
The big question of AoWC, however, is color. Going with b/w throughout, we’re looking at a retail price somewhere around $12-$15 a book. Color, on the other hand, cranks the retail price up into the $33-$38 range, which is not a bad price for 230+ strips, but definitely tends to push it back a bit from the impulse buyer.
I’m curious to hear how readers feel: if you’re inclined to pick up a copy of Attack of the War-Cats, would full color be worth the higher price to you?
