    By the way, I like the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe-like feel.

    If I understand the thinking on Blackwyrm's part (I'm no longer part of the company per se having left many moons ago), assuming the Kickstarter goes well, that shows the market is actually there and the series will continue on their part (which is to say, providing the funding, though there may still be future Kickstarters to help out). I certainly hope so, anyway, as I have 30 volumes planned out and 5 out-of-series proper supplements (first one being worked on now) also planned, so I'd really hate to stop publishing with only something like 5% of the entries out to the world.

    Yeah, Alex (the interior artist) and I are bigtime fans of the OHOTMU. Glad you like the affectionate homage.

    Apex

    If the first two volumes do well, who do you tentatively have scheduled for Vol. 3, and what quarter are you looking to release Juvenile Injustice? Or has that not been decided yet?

    Volume 3 = Blacksun to Cadaver
    Volume 4 = Cagliostro to Children of Diablo
    Volume 5 = Chimera to Confederate Knights

    (That's what is being worked on right now by moi and Alex...contents are actually planned up through #30)

    It's more likely that JI will be 4th quarter than 3rd, but you never know. A lot of things depend on the Kickstarter (which is something people are probably going to get tired of hearing me say).

    In other words, ladies and gents, unless we support these products (as in buy them), none of this stuff will see the light of day. So if you want to see more of the world Aaron and crew have created, get out there and promote it, and toss a few bucks in the Kickstarter. You'll blow through $5 on junk food, overpriced coffee, or some such other silliness. Why not invest in a product you will actually get some long term use out of?

    Will these books be sold in stores, should the Kickstarter be successful?

    I think that's a question you'll have to field to the Blackwyrm crew.

    I know Dave intends to have dead tree copies in the Blackwyrm booths at cons, but I'll email him your question.
