This leaves Department O.
|Unused Department O cover, art by Andrew MacLean|
There are two barriers that stand between us starting and finishing the book, which are money and time - namely finding a moment when Andrew is available to work on the story.
I am striving to focus on this series and really push to get it finished, so once the art for MotM is complete (and, based on how fast Agustin can work, it will not be ver long at all!) I will put that book aside to get to work on Department O.
This will leave both Hero Code series waiting coloring and some lettering, but I think pushing to get Department O done will be worth it.
My plan still remains to complete each series and then run small Kickstarter's to do print runs for the completed books. I will still be looking to publish in 6x9 and start with funding for 1000 copies, pushing to 2000 as push goals during the campaigns (the bump in cost to print 1k and 2k copies is actually so slight, that it wouldn't take much of a push to get there).
Once the first KS is complete, I can focus on finishing up Hero Code and Hero Code Theatre of War (running KS's for each of them) before getting back to work on the Black Wraith book.
ETA: If any artist friends out there want to provide fan art for Department O, please let us know, thank you!
