You haven't missed it yet. They are working on it right now (it is with their designer). Hopfully we'll get it late Summer!

I ordered this back in the Fall. I've never read any of the grave tales comics before, but I'm really looking forward to this. The artwork is simply amazing.

The new short story by Ray Garton was the last item we needed, and it is really a great note to end the issue on! Now that everything is in place, our designer is putting everything together and we'll be ready to print this summer. Plus... we have a REALLY nice surprise for anyone who bought the Limited Edition hardcover, but I can't disclose what it is yet. Thanks for your patience!

The limited edition was sold out before I got around to ordering so I will miss out on the surprise. I am still looking forward to getting my copy when it is released!

Well, the surprise was a surprise for us, too! The paper edition is 48 pages, but the hardcover binder needed a minimum of 56 pages... It was too late to change the paper editions, but we didn't want 8 blank pages in the the hardcover, so we improvised a bit. Hopefully this feature will be something we could add to all versions of future issues if folks like it! :) Details to come soon...

Content within the pages of the limited that is not in the trade edition. I like it! Just wish I had the limited on order!

Gotta love extra material!!!

Patrick

I agree with both of you. It's always appreciated when limited editions have a little extra content. I'll have to look to the secondary market for a limited on this one.

Everything is ready for the printer, just have to get CD #66 done first, which is headed to the printer next week for an April pub date. (We use the same printer for both.)

As for plans going forward... yep, there are some BIG plans, but I can't share them just yet. The Future of Grave Tales has been a major project of mine these last few months, getting all of my ducks in a row for some big changes, and we will have a very exciting announcement this summer.

It feels like that's what I've been doing for the last 4 years since I took over production: getting ducks in a row for this, and then for that, and then for... Who knew you'd have so many ducks at a publishing company... which is really surprising when you consider how many DOGS we have here:

Oh, look at those beautiful puppy faces! Does everyone have a dog/cat voice that you use just for your animal babies?

Hey, if I lived in Maryland, I would VOLUNTEER my time to help you guys. Just to be around all those books would bliss me out.

I've tried that, to no avail. I know I'm only about 20 minutes from their offices, even though I don't know exactly where they are. I used to work as a courier, and I'm pretty sure I've made deliveries to their neighbors up there, but then again, those days were way back when Rich was still working out of his house, not at this warehouse. The offer didn't work for Borderlands Press, either, and I think they are within a couple minutes of my Mom's house.

Looking at a summer announcement for the big news -- I want all of the art in hand first since that's been the major problem, all in all. :)

Haven't received mine yet either but I was never going to be anywhere near a signing, I would Like to get my ARC of NOS4A2 signed but probably not going to happen, Have you finished reading it yet Marin?

Martin
05-17-2013, 04:11 AM
I have not finished reading it yet. I hoped to have it finished before he came to town but life keeps getting in the way. I am a little over 500 pages in and loving it. My NOS4A2 Arc is one of the things I will be getting signed. My 14 year old niece is going with me to see him tomorrow and she is excited.

I was able to see him when I came through promoting Horns and really enjoyed it. I will finish NOS4A2 this weekend.

The subscriptions that leave direct from the printer have been sent out. However if you ordered this without a subscription or this is the first issue in your subscription, they come from us, and we still have not received our copies from the printer yet.

Hey Dan, when do you expect the hardbacks?

I have absolutely no idea. I honestly don't even know when the regular ones are supposed to get here. Truthfully I thought they'd be here by now. Though truth be told, even if they came in tomorrow I don't expect to have time to ship them for another 3 weeks or so.

Edit: Though we'd probably rush the regular edition out the door ASAP as it'd only take an hour or so to ship those.

Hey Dan, when do you expect the hardbacks?

Approval copies shipped to us today, so the finished run will probably be ready in the first half of June.

I'm hoping soon. We're shipping a book that came in last week out this week and I'm hoping that our copies of Grave Tales will be here before we're done, also the Hardcovers for this should be able to ship around the same time as they arrived with the book.

I had thought about waiting until the regular copies arrived to ship them at the same time, but I'm not sure when they where getting here and the afternoon's shipping schedule opened up, and we already had the supplies to ship them. So we went ahead and got them out the door (so to speak, they don't actually leave the building till the morning).
