Update:Well, it means that I'm now going to be up until dawn working on book stuff, but I managed to get the Exclusives! wallpapers finished. So I can give you a sneak peek of what you'll get if you donate/donated in April or May.
Scroll down to see the previews of the wallpapers.
Should be a moderately interesting news post today.
First of all, I have some rather exciting news concerning a project I've been working on. As those of you familiar with the game should already know, as part of the subscription benefits for City of Heroes, subscribers will be receiving a City of Heroes comic book in the mail each month. It seemed only fitting, given that it's a super hero game, right? What you may not have known, however, is that starting with issue three, it will include a full-page original City of Heroes comic strip done by me. So make sure that your mailing address is correct on your City of Heroes account.
I also wanted to make a quick mention concerning the Exclusives! for April and May. A short while back I mentioned that I would be combining April and May into one mailing. That is still the case, so if you've donated in April or May, don't worry, you'll be receiving the content soon. The problem has been, quite simply, that I've been putting nearly all of my time, outside of drawing the regular strip, into this book. We're working on a pretty tight deadline here. I'll talk about book stuff in a moment. I can tell you that the Exclusives! are going to be two sets of wallpapers featuring Player One and Player Two. The artwork is already drawn, I just need to scan it and finish them. I promise I'll get to it as soon as I can.
Now, concerning the book. As I said on Wednesday, I am going to open the door on pre-orders Monday. I originally said I was going to give you all of the details on Monday as well, but I'm now aiming on having them available by Sunday night, so you have time to read over it before the pre-orders open.
I cannot stress enough how important pre-orders are going to be for the financing of this book. I am doing as much as I can to make pre-ordering well worth it, and all of that information will be included later this weekend. Most likely I will be putting up some sort of progress bar so you can see how we're doing with the pre-orders.
I'll give you all of that information as soon as I can, like I said. I've got a ridiculously busy weekend ahead of me, so it's just a matter of when I can actually write it all up.
In closing, Thief 3 is incredible.

I thought I would point out that the City of Heroes comic book should be in comic shops as well. Or at least you could have your local comic shop order one. I'm not one hundred percent certain about this, but damn close enough.
