: "Chosen, I'm glad to say, is out next week. I finished all the scripts well before the first issue was scheduled and Peter handed in both art and colouring in plenty of time. I've no idea why Dark Horse took so long to get this out there, but each subsequent issue should be around four weeks apart.
The Unfunnies issue one and two were completely written, drawn and coloured MONTHS before Christmas, but the publisher was in charge of lettering and, on the first issue, this wasn't ready until Christmas Eve (when I proofed it). No idea why this has been the case or if issue two has even been lettered yet. We've done our bit and the book's sold like crazy so I expect issue two will be lettered and published soon. Again, it's out of our hands.
Wanted is pretty close to monthly. Issue one came out in December, issue two came out towards the end of January and issue three will be out in March. I think JG is turning these around every five or six weeks and I'm happy enough with that. The DVD edition/ gallery project will be out in April (if memory serves), btw.
Run has been cancelled because there's no art. This isn't really Ashley's fault because drawing a comic for no money upfront (the Image deal) is a big commitment and it's understandable if he has to do paying work instead. Nobody's been able to get hold of him for quite a while on this subject, but we're hoping to resolve the matter soon. As this is the first in a series of shorts, everything else has been held up until we figure out what to do about this.
Run will be out at some point over the next few months. All the other books are tied into it. We just need to speak to Ashley and figure out a plan.
Ah, the joy's of working outside the Big Two...
Then again, I wouldn't have it any other way. For all the hiccups small publishers bring, the rewards are great too. We've got three major studios fighting over Wanted (deal should be signed this week, we're told), the books have sold a shit-load and people seem to really, really like them. Plus, after being a good boy at Marvel for the last couple of years this nasty, little wave has really been a lot of fun."
