So those are the stories! There’s a few surprises guests as well, but I’m keeping them a secret…no sense in spoiling the fun!
Rus Wooton’s handling production and lettering (except for the stories where the artists are doing their own lettering) and I’m editing the whole thing.
And the cover is by…one of my favorite artists in the world, and one of the most amazing colorists I’ve seen in a while. I’ll tell ya some other time. :)
