    CODENAME BABOUSHKA art preview

    Hi all,

    Some of you already know my new Image book CODENAME BABOUSHKA: THE CONCLAVE OF DEATH, which was announced at Image Expo last month, is now in Previews.

    The solicit and pre-ordering...

    It's a conversation between the creators and publisher. Ultimately the creators have final say, but that's normally made after input and suggestions from Image. A lot of it depends on the book type,...

    If 17,000 sales of a new issue #1 actually equalled a fanbase of 17,000 readers, every single book on the stands right now would be in a much healthier place. The fact is, many issue #1s go to...

    The first arc, or 'mission' as we like to think of it. Each will have a suitably pulpy name; e.g. working titles for subsequent missions currently include "Menace in Macau", "Ghost Station Zero", and...

    Amusingly, I'd never heard anyone use the word "baboushka" in such a way, ever, when you first posted; but then just yesterday I saw someone do exactly that. Weird!

    (I do know loads of people use...

    Darth, I'm going to guess you're not familiar with my work. If you were, you'd know I'm not the kind of writer to just use foreign words randomly, without understanding their meaning ;)

    CODENAME...

    Yeah, a few people said that. Ironically, other people said the first arc was "too fast" and they wanted the book to slow down and explain what was going on. You can't please everyone.

    Afraid so, yeah.

    - Here's the tumblr post in question.

    - And if you're concerned the same thing might happen to THE FUSE, don't be. Here's my answer to someone asking about that.

    You remember how I said in the reply to that letter that doing recaps for WASTELAND was a pain in the ass? If I'd had to make videos of them, selecting panels, doing a voiceover, syncing them up in...

    Thanks, all. Even bigger and better things to come in the world of THE FUSE, we promise :)

    Not common, no. Jay told me it was a simple error, won't happen again.

    Which is why I said "if possible." We know lots of people don't live anywhere near an LCS, and of course for them online shopping is easier and preferable. Don't get me wrong, if the choice is...

    I think it's great -- anything that expands the market and caters to mainstream genres is commendable, and if their model is working for them, that's brilliant. But as you say, they're (currently) a...

    Technically accurate, but you've mis-emphasised it. I was actually responding to someone asking "is it OK if I tradewait", and I said I really don't mind, but whichever format you choose to buy,...

    That is officially the weirdest criticism we've yet had. Surely "a fantasy map with too much detail" is by definition impossible? ;)

    Hey, everyone. Antony Johnston, UMBRAL writer, here.

    Just wanted to say, this is a *very* early preview of issue #7 -- it's not actually on sale till July 16 -- but we're putting it out there so...

    No, the idea is to get retailers to increase their initial orders to what they know they can sell because they keep ordering reprints.

    I've definitely contemplated the idea of doing QUEEN & COUNTRY-style shorter compendiums, with around 10 issues in each, once the series is done. Something like that might feel less daunting to new...

    Not sure, but I anticipate it being either late this year or early next. Bearing in mind there'll be 5 hardcover volumes in all, and the series will end early next year, so I don't imagine either of...
