I'm still here, just sorta coasting, mainly replying by email to stuff I see
that needs replying to, and wondering why on earth people are still responding
to Cronan as if a) he had anything of value to say, b) were actually a carbon
based life form, instead of a juvenile troll in need of attention....

The preview is 70% story, 30% art samples and other supporting stuff for the
book; the issue 0 is a full story. Top Cow hasn't released info on the artist

So far, everybody there is massively jazzed about the new book; the scripts

person as they come in, and read and reread. Apparently they're knocked out by
