I tend to over think things... I think?
David Brame has finished his line work on the fill in issue of The Hero Code.
The issue has been referred to as "issue zero", "the Hero Code special", "an annual", "issue six" etc etc etc.
Basically because I wasn't sure where to slot it in the run of things.
However, I'm trying to build, at least initially, the sense of a classic comic book from yesterday year. And, back in the day, if an issue had a delay, they would simply get a fill in artist or a fill in story, and keep the numbering the same.
So, that's what we are going to do.
David Brame's issue of Hero Code will be issue number two. It is a fill in story, stand-alone, and will give Jonathan Rector a little breather to finish his commitments on the Standard.
When we collect the book in a trade form, then I can have the debate about where to place this story, but that's another otherthought for another day!
In the meantime, here's a look at the cover for issue two, art by David Brame... coming soon!
