Morning guys! I'm about to head downstairs and begin my commission work for the day. But first, I wanted to mention that the 'Code Name: Hunter' trades are now available in the RCSI Publishing store once again. I apologize for the delay. Matt and I mark the books as "sold out" while we're at a con just in case we actually do sell out and need to order a print run when we return. Since print runs can take a bit, this seems like a better option than making everyone wait up to six weeks for their books to arrive.
But, the post-con inventory count is complete and the CN:H section of the store is full and running again! If you met us at Anthrocon and weren't sure about picking up one of our books, now's a good time. We're still offering the Story So Far bundle which will get you caught up - and ahead - of the online version. The price... $50 for three trade paperbacks. Not a bad deal!
We are running very low on some of the single issues, namely Issues 12, 13, and 14. If you're interested in single issues, now's the time. Due to storage space and print cost, once a single issue sells out, that's it. We just can't afford to keep them in print.
We received a lot of questions at AC about when Issue 15 will be available. Issue 15 will begin running online on October 12th and will be available in print before that. I apologize for the delay. CN:H no longer pays me, so I need to take on paying work instead. Which, as you can guess, cuts into comic creation time. I'm still trying to find a good balance for everyone.
As for whether we'll have Volume III available at AC next year, I'm afraid the answer is no. I won't be able to complete Volume III and get it to the printer in time. But, we should have it ready for Anthrocon of 2014.
And, on that note, I need to get to work so I can finish two commissions and have a third one started by Tuesday evening. Then, it's on to CN:H work for the rest of the week. I'm feeling much better about starting the issue now. Sometimes it just takes a bit for the anxiety to go down. Thanks guys!
