Looks exactly the way I wanted it to be
Writing has a definite presence over the black/white art
Genre definitely a change from the major publishers’ superhero genre that feels the need to progress the characters
Smaller than a standard comic book (almost zine-sized)
Back cover inks look too “jagged” as opposed to the other scanned artwork (I blame digital inking)
Cost under $11 just for one printing
Trimming artwork to the bleed edge and re-stapling it would cost more and be more complicated
I’m kinda proud of this first edition considering how my last attempt at a printed comic was just reprints of some webcomics that I had done for my own amusement. This book has actual short stories in an actual universe with actual characters with actual personalities. I definitely put a lot of effort into the creation of this product, and it shows.
Next step: Re-writing the CoH universe from an original perspective with original characters of my own creation.
P.S.: If you want your own copy, let me know. Kinko’s holding the file for 30 days only.
