Comic Geek Speak Super Show '10

Hey all, Square 1 Press will be making it's first convention appearance of the year at the Comic Geek Speak Super Show '10 in Reading, PA the weekend of March 27 & 28th with Walter and Louise Simonson. All info is HERE.
S1P will have the last few (recently discovered) copies of Volume 1 of the Walter Simonson sketchbook series.
We will also have copies of Volume 2 for sale as well.
For the first time, S1P will have a Limited Edition Walter Simonson print available as well. Limited to just 50 numbered copies, this print features an image never reproduced in print anywhere before. Featuring Walter's creator-owned "StarSlammers", this ultra-limited print (just 50 numbered copies) is the first of what we hope to be a long line of convention exclusive prints. Since Walter will be in attendance, you can get the print signed by the master himself. Any leftover copies will be available at the S1P webstore. Here's what it looks like:
So there you go, we think this is a great place to start, and we'll be having another print for the C2E2 show in April as well. Stay tuned for more info!
For all you attending the CGSSS in Reading, PA next weekend, see ya there!

WOW...has it really been THAT long?

Well, once again, I have to apologize for taking so long between updates. We have sort of hit a lull in our evolution as a publisher. This lull is known as money. There are many, many places on this internet where you can read about the difficult world of publishing and comics. I will not bore you with that here, just suffice to say that a good portion of what you read is legit. Life's tough. Wear a helmet. Move on.
So, we are. We will do what we can, when we can and hope for the best. I have been busy working on some new story ideas for both film and comics. Updates to other projects to follow:

We have all the artwork for issue #2 finished and ready to go. All the pencils for #3 are done and ready to be inked. #4 is already rolling along in the pencil stage. We are currently reviewing the possibility of printing the whole arc in one TPB rather than wait for individual issues to be printed. We'll see what comes of this plan.

Walter Simonson Studio.
Volume 1 of the sketchbook series is SOLD OUT.
Volume 2 is still available at the Square1Press webstore.
Volume 3 will premiere at C2E2 in Chicago, the weekend of April 16-18th.

That's where we're at for now. As I get other things moving along, I will write about them here. along with updates about availablity and appearances.

Thanks to any and all who stop by take a minute to care.
