Digital vs Print
RSA Vol 8 No 1: the last printed anything.
Besides questions about original art/commissions/sketches, I get a lot of questions about publishing RSA Volume 8 in print. You know, on actual paper so that you can feel and lovingly caress your Ralph Snart in your actual hands. This creates a disturbing mental picture as I imagine naked fans rolling around on their issues of Snart. Anyway...
After all, Volumes 1 through 7 are all in print, plus the first issue of Volume 8 is in print. What's the deal? So, print the rest of them, DAMMIT! Well, please take note that I haven't published anything in print since 2008 -- almost a dozen years ago. Hello. This might suggest, besides other reasons, that I'm committed to digital publishing and have no inclination whatsoever to publish in print ever again.
So, those sick degenerates with a sick "paper fetish" will have to come to grips with this. Do you continue to wait? Gee, maybe Hansen will publish next year or the year after or maybe in ten years or so... maybe if I wait just a while longer...
By that time, I'll be dead and buried. Until then, I'll be cranking out new issues.
Finally, there's still plenty to collect. There's over 60 comics and trade paperbacks (including Doctor Gorpon and Weird Melvin), trading cards and posters.
In other news, Beer #47 turned out awesome. It was wet and dry hopped --great hops flavor and aroma but not overly bitter.
