For those yet to see it:

Kung Fury, the complete movie in all its glory.


It's a thing of such exquisite beauty...

If Spycraft 3rd can't support this (for the PCs specifically) then it's not worth getting Grin

I don't  have to read beyond the first six words. I'm afraid you'll be disappointed on this score, my friend.

I appreciate the kind words, everyone, I really do. Thank you.

It's aggravating to have to constantly jump from project to project, keeping all those plates spinning until you can finally serve one of them up. It's the curse of the small business entrepreneur, however, and we must bear it if we're to continue makin' stuff on our own terms.

I'm close to swinging back to Spellbound but still have a few things to accomplish on the other side. Work continues on the layout end, and it's lookin' great.

I don't suppose I should keep my hopes up for the end of may?

No. Sorry. Still working. Swing back again later.

Just to make certain I understand....  You Did decide to do an Omniubs Edition?  As in a single POD option that includes all 12 of the smaller releases as 1 POD rather than having to pay for 12 PODs? If this is correct - hallelujah. The cost of printing 12 PODs would be extremely costly, assuming that at the size of each volume, I'm guessing a POD price-point of probably close to $10 each. Also kudos on including the PDF versions with the POD version as a bundle.

Yes. Both a complete Omnibus and individual releases will be available, and multiple bundle options will be available as well.

So, the Agents of SHIELD finale was a thing that happened.

It was all those words, strung together in exactly that order.

Quicksilver should have been Space, but the Scarlet Witch has Reality written all over her powers.

Of course, there is the possibility that the Mind Gem didn't grant them their powers, it just turned on some already existing Kree wackiness and they're actually Inhumans.

And the other gems may already be locked down for other purposes in the larger MCU arc.

The thing to remember at all times with movie adaptations - and especially with a series this large and interconnected, with so many moving parts and creatives coming in and out of the franchise - is that these decisions are (more often than not) made for practical reasons that have nothing to do with the actual movie or its storyline. And no, movies of this scale are not driven by their storylines. Not ever. I've worked on films this big - only at the fringes but I've been ground zero and seen how these things come together - and a certain number of decisions are made by momentum, or are taken out of your hands due to schedule conflicts, or contract issues, or as sacrifices to get the thing made in the first place.

Honestly, I think it's a minor miracle we're getting the MCU at all, let alone that it's good.

Enjoy your burrito.

Are you guys going to release each portion of the rolled out PDF once that portion has been edited/gone through lay out? Or are you going to finish the entire thing, then release it all onver the roll out period?

We won't be releasing the first one until at least 2/3 of the series is 100% done. We've learned our lesson on that the hard way.

The Flash proves you wrong.

Only because he's the only hero (regularly) on the show. It was literally my first thought during the AoU final fight sequence: "Wow, this will get really old, really fast - seeing all these other heroes doing their thing but... not quite, because we have this speedster in the mix."

My second thought was that it was really, really pretty, and also pretty awesome. Once. Smiley

As of earlier this week a big chunk of Spellbound is out of editing and into layout. Not enough for us to set a launch date, unfortunately, but a big enough chunk that I can make out the finish line.

I have to split away for a bit to deal with a couple other (comparatively small) projects with hard and fast-approaching deadlines, but I'll be back on this as soon as I can. I wanted to make sure you all knew we'd made some real progress though, and that we should have good news on this front soon.

I'll repeat: we do not have a launch date yet. We'll get you one as soon as we can.

As Alex says, we're not quite ready to talk about the next steps for Z-Corps. It's a complex situation with lots of moving parts and very few in our control at the moment. All completely unexpected and in most cases a little disappointing, but there's still room for a kick-ass product out of it all... just not for a while.

I have a vision for what this one could become, and we tentatively have the people and resources to pull it off. It's still early days yet, however, and until my person takes the vision doc over and agrees to make it real, nothing's in stone.

More as we know, but it's unlikely you'll be hearing what will become of this before the next steps for Spycraft, Mistborn, and Fantasy Craft. Not impossible, but unlikely.

So Whedon admitted he killed Quicksilver because he doesn't know how to build tension in the third act without killing a puppy?

To be fair, killing Quicksilver also saves future Avengers (and other) directors from always having to set up big battle sequences in slow motion. Wink

That would get really, really tiresome about the second time it happened.

hey pat what username do you use on the ascension app?

PM me for it, if you will. I posted it earlier and immediately received password change requests on some of my game accounts.

The world, it's filled with jokers and thieves...

Generally, the further back in the production channel something is the less reliable our dates are (even internally). Spellbound is currently in edits and still has layout after that, and I would argue that any release date given before layout is 100% complete is by definition shaky - even if everything goes according to plan.

This week alone I've had to deal with major unexpected house work with a few of half a dozen guys. Nothing I could have planned for but still something that impacts the schedule. Just how it goes.

12 files.  150,000 words.  They did it.  They actually created a book that can be classified as a blunt, 2H weapon. 

Well it would if it was printed out. At the moment, it's just something that deals subdual and stress damage for every day you wait for it.  Grin

Or work on it. I'm hip deep right now. More soon.
