I really enjoy posts like this, and I'm basically waiting for you to finish so you can take my money.

Thank you! We're working on being able to take your money just as soon as possible, but I won't launch a Kickstarter for pre-orders until the books are ready for the printer.

But in all seriousness, it's really good to hear it when someone appreciates what I'm doing. Poe is mostly terribly grumpy about it, and I can't say I really blame him.

I don't care what, you guys do, or whatever you guys use. Lets be realistic, as a long time reader and purchaser ( I would purchase more if I had a constant flow of money, and maybe even donate ) of Poes:roll: work, all I really care about him freely doing the comic, no differnt then the way Charles Schulz had his way with "Peanuts". Look at Sinfest, he is just riding the beggar train on subjects, showing us that his audience consists of certain characters.

I do not really care about proffency of spelling, grammer, and standards. I went to college being tramatized by crap like that. All I care about is the langauge of Poes comic that communicates with images and words ( especially the kind of heart throbbing auwsomeness of his comics ). I Just want to his freedom of expression. Not a

About CeltX. Their are tons of helper "Tools" people use for their works. I do not really care what program you folks use to make your words look like if it was painted by the robot-devil. All I care is that it is a complete work. Scanning through Poes original works, I would rather see more of what he usted to do, in whatever situations, then using the almighty power of technology. If this was 2000 what would Poe had attempt to do? If this was 2005, what would Poe had attempted to do?

Great, you guys are being proffessional to whatever standards. That is real nice, just stay true
to the original art ( story telling, etc ) style and not get too commercial. Being commercial is real nice, but don't forget originalism is what people feed on, asides for all the happy happy nook nook parts.

If your doing this to be fair, to such and such people, fine. You climb that ladder, and watch out for the snakes :ugeek: along the way.

This isn't a matter of commercialization, so much as pride of accomplishment, of doing the best work we can do. We want to print books that we'll still feel proud of a dozen years later. That kind of need really has nothing to do with our audience and what they do or don't want, it's internally-motivated and about artistic integrity.

Well said, Impy.

A widespread and therefore dangerous tendency has developed in our society to see "professionalism" and "crass commercialism" as one and the same thing. They aren't.

Absolutely Graybeard!
Impy, it looks like you are recovering well. I've been learning all about Production-ready here too. It's a PITA! I hope to hit Kindle some time this year.
Poe, keep on keeping on ;)
To everyone else: How are y'all doing? I miss you guys and Errant Story.
