Just so we're clear THIS IS NOT UNDERTOW #1. Although Greg Harms and I have been busting ass (mostly Greg) to finish the edits so that this issue would be available for Wizard World Austin (November 12-14) we realized we were running into some lag time with getting the issue back from the printer so we decided to stop briefly and get some things squared away for this con. Our friend Gibson Quarter threw in his two cents (Canadian) as he usually does and said I needed to do some type of advertising for the book and suggested an ashcan (small comic book) among other things. I liked the idea, and then took it way too far as I often do with things--luckily Greg was with me--we did some edits over a few days, I headed to a local printer here in Bellingham, WA (Copy Source), and just over 24 hours later get a call back that the books are done.
So what we've got here is the UNDERTOW Austin Comic Con Preview, which I affectionately refer to as the Ashcan (and some posters at the bottom left corner). The Ashcan is sixteen pages long, contains the first half from each of the four stories featured in UNDERTOW #1, along with some of the concept art from Greg and Roman Morales III. There are 250 copies of this edition, and that's all there will ever be. I've added a Paypal link for anyone that might be interested in purchasing one of these in the next week or so, but after that there are no guarantees--the rest of these books are going to Texas. So if you're interested please buy one, or buy one along with an advance purchase of UNDERTOW #1 and save some money on the shipping ($4 for the first book, $1 for each additional). I hope you like what you're seeing so far. Wish Greg and I luck in Austin if nothing else we are going to have a good time.
