We’re very excited that we got the proofs in so that we had physical product to show people, but the work doesn’t end here!
The proofs are practical, in that they’ve let us see a few adjustments that we have to make before going to print.
There are a few minor adjustments here and there in some of the books, a couple of tweaks and corrections; we’ll be making those in the next few days prior to putting in the order for a run to fulfill to backers.
The good news is, we are on-track for meeting our delivery goal–maybe even ahead of schedule!
Thank you for your support for Wild Stars, and we’re looking forward to getting these magnificent books in your hands!
There are only 4 days left on the Wild Stars kickstarter, so if you can, tell your friends and spread the word! The Kickstarter is about 2/3 of the way towards its goal, but will surely make it with one big push here at the end! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wild-stars-iv/cirsova-presents-wild-stars-iv-wild-star-rising
There’s only one week left to back the Kickstarter for the 35th Anniversary Editions of Michael Tierney’s Wild Stars!
The proofs arrived last week, and they look fantastic!
Here’s a sneak peek at the interiors for the new edition of Book of Circles!
The artwork is ~20% larger than originally published in individual comic form and substantially larger than when it was resized to fit the trade format of the previous collected editions. There are a lot of little details in the artwork that could’ve been missed in the smaller formats that are now more apparent, including several easter eggs and Chekov’s Guns hiding in the backgrounds.
This project is very important to the future of Cirsova Publishing. While any retail sales we get of our magazines won’t pay out for 90 days following the close of period, the money we make off Wild Stars WILL be available in time for our October acquisition period. So, the better Wild Stars does for us, the more money Cirsova Publishing will have to acquire fiction for 2020 and pay our art and editorial teams!
We’ve got the softcover proofs of Wild Stars in!
Left to Right: Book of Circles, Force Majeure, Time Warmageddon, and Wild Star Rising
Michael Tierney has been in the comic industry for about 40 years. His Little Rock location, The Comic Book Store has been in business for 30 years this year!
The Wild Stars Kickstarter is just over 1/4 of the way to our goal!
We’ve already put in the order for proof copies of both the hardcover and softcovers, and should be receiving them fairly soon!
Please be sure to back as soon as possible!
