Producing comics is a complex process … there are lots of elements to deal with and many people involved in the process that are out of our control … and many times out of our state. Everybody is human and mistakes can be made, and due to the nature of comic production - it’s not always easy to catch those mistakes. That is what happened with Chaser Platoon: The Collected Edition. There were two covers for this incredible trade paperback, one (the Kickstarter edition) by Tim Eldred and the standard retailer cover by Ryan Miller with colors by Zach Bassett. It’s the standard cover where the error was made - the inside credit page only gives credit to the Kickstarter edition artist and fails to single out the incredible work of Ryan Miller.
Ryan worked hard on this cover and turned in a dynamic piece, only made that much better by Zach’s colors. Ryan Miller is a great artist and deserves the credit for the cover. Instead of trying to find where the mistake was made or casting blame, I am personally apologizing for this oversight (one that will be corrected with future printings) and I encourage you to check out Ryan’s other work and if you see him at a comic convention - please let him know what a great job he did with the Chaser Platoon cover.
Sugar Boogarz Variant
By Michael "LocoDuck" Duron
The "Retailer Variant" for Sugar Boogarz issue 1 is a very limited edition version of the standard or regular version, in that the content of the comic is the same yet the cover is different. The only way to to get this cover is to buy it directly from comic book retailers. We are offering the variant to them at 5 to 1 ratio, if you want this highly limited and no doubt sought after version of Sugar Boogarz #1, you should tell your local comic book retailer right away.
Cosmic Times is excited to finally announce a new plan for PalmCon. Instead of one big event we have chosen to stretch the PalmCon experience into several different events through out the year. Think of your favorite part of PalmCon, now magnify it by ten and that is what we have planned. PalmCon: Comicfest will focus on the comics and cosplay. PalmCon: Bookfest will hone in on bringing authors and readers together, books, graphic novels and a love of reading through those things. The PalmCon Student Film Fest will highlight independent film makers and their accomplishments.
Remember how comic conventions used to be? Affordable? Personal experiences with guests? Fun that you could share with the whole family? That's what we are aiming for here. We hope you are as excited about these changes as much as we are. It will be a journey to a new kind of PalmCon … a comic and pop culture experience that is truly geared to the local community.
Stay tuned for more information including dates and venues…..
"... in life ... sometimes things are not always black and white, in those shades of grey,
the hard choices are made ..."
This is first time a Decisions book has been offered to the national comic buying market.
