THE HEROIC BLOG
25 November 2015
Sometime this weekend, we'll be launching a new feature on the Heroic Publishing website. Once it's fully implemented, you'll be able to see Progress Reports for upcoming issues of all our Heroic Publishing titles. We'll tell you how far along we are with the stories, artwork, coloring, and lettering, which issues are ready to go to the printer, when they're expected to go to the printer, and when they're expected to go on sale. And in most cases, we'll give you some sample pages to look at! Watch for it. And when it's up, please let us know how useful you think it's going to be.

A lot of progress this past weekend. The conclusion to the "Steel Shrike" story that will appear in Flare #43 has been drawn, scripted, and sent out for coloring. The four-page Fantastic Girl mini-adventure that will appear in Heroic Spotlight #23 is drawn, scripted, and ready for coloring. The bonus Spiderbaby adventure that will appear in Sensational G-Girl #1 is colored and ready for lettering. There are only three more pages of artwork to be finished for League of Champions #16. And Black Enchantress #4 is now completely laid out, and ready for our printer. What we're trying to do is get ahead of schedule, so that when 2016 gets here we'll be able to roll new comics out on a much more regular schedule.

Only one more page left to go! And Gordon Purcell is hard at work on it. As soon as it's here, Black Enchantress #4 will be sent to the printer. Right now, we're looking at an on-sale date of late November or early December.

Billi Jayne has a new home page! We're gearing up for a February release of the super-sized first issue of The Sensational G-Girl, and in anticipation of that we've launched a brand-new look for the G-Girl's website at www.heroicmultiverse.com/ggirl. Take a look, and let us know what features you'd like us to add. We're still in the process of building it, and your input will be most welcome.

Have you noticed? We're preparing brand-new editions of classic Heroic titles. In addition to color versions of various titles that back in the 1990s were published in black and white, we're also putting together new editions of titles from the 1980s. The goal here is to keep in print, in one form or another, everything Heroic Publishing has ever published! That means new editions are on the horizon of the earliest issues of Flare and Champions, complete with a few added surprise bonus features! Check out our Previews page. If you want copies of the new editions, we'll be more than happy to send them your way.

Mark Beachum just finished a beautiful Flare piece. If you'd like to purchase the original art, you can place a bid on eBay here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/371432971028. The auction closes on September 17. But even if you don't win that, don't despair. We're about to launch series of posters available featuring high quality reproductions of Mark's classic Flare illos. As soon as that's ready to go, we'll let you know.

Our apologies for the snafu last Monday, when our website went down during the last several hours of our end-of-August sale. Our web hosting company assures us that unscheduled server migrations won't be happening again, but we still have an obligation to make up for it. So for the benefit of anyone who wanted to take advantage of that sale but couldn't (and for anyone else who might be interested in doing so) we're going to do it again this weekend. From now through the end of Labor Day, visit our back issue page and get 15% off the regular price of each and every Heroic back issue!

Today's words of wisdom from the Sensational G-Girl: "Evidently, there are some giant gorillas who don't like being referred to as monkeys."

I should add that copies of these new editions of various classic Heroic titles can be purchased not only here on the Heroic Publishing website, but at www.IndyPlanet.com

We're also preparing new editions of the early issues of FLARE! The reason is that we're running low on our inventory of titles from the 1980s and 1990s, and replacement copies are becoming more and more difficult to find. But we've always wanted to keep every Heroic Publishing back issue available for new readers for as long as we possibly can. Trade paperback collections are a help; they do make the stories available in a different format. But the only long-term solution to the question of what to do when we run out of copies of, say Flare #1, is to have a brand-new edition ready to go.
