We are turning off the comments for at least the next couple of pages due to the amount of spoilers being posted. I know folks who are familiar with the original tales are excited to see them come to life. I totally understand. However, there are a lot of readers who don’t know the original story and it’s not fair to reveal forthcoming plot points.
1. PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT POST SPOILERS.
2. Don't be rude toward the artists, their work, or other readers.
3. Disagreements are fine, insults are not.
4. Joking at the fairy tales silly nature is fine, crude jokes and comments are not. This is an all-ages site. Let's keep it that way.
5. Comments can be removed at moderator's discretion.
Gina will be appearing at the Animate! Miami convention in Miami, FL this weekend, January 17-19. Gina took a year off for the pregnancy of her second baby so this is her first one back to the convention scene. She will have lots of her books, including copies of Erstwhile Vol.1 with her. Stop by her booth and pick up a copy or bring yours and she’ll sign it for you. Hope to see you there!
Thank you everyone for your support and getting us to our funding goal for ERSTWHILE VOLUME 2! Our appreciation and excitement knows no bounds! Personally, I am doing a happy dance right now! We can’t wait to print this book! Having reached the goal, the book can be printed and we are including the short bonus comic, The Three Lazy Ones, in the book.
That being said, there’s still 24 hours to go for our campaign. There’s still time to stretch! If we get to $28k before the end, everyone who ordered a print copy of Erstwhile Vol.2 will also receive a 4″ x 6″ sheet of stickers. And if we hit even higher and reach $30k everyone who pledges any amount will receive a digital copy of the Erstwhile mini-Artbook. It contains a collection of completed illustrations and concept art.
Elle Skinner will be at APE 2013 (Alternative Press Expo) in San Francisco, CA this weekend at TABLE 514. She will be selling Erstwhile books and merchandise, handing out free goodies, and meeting with readers. Buy a copy of Erstwhile or bring your copy of Erstwhile to have it signed! Elle would love to meet you!
So, a lot of readers have been asking for what’s coming up next in our fairytale lineup here at Erstwhile. Louisa, Elle, and I are so very happy you are excited about more works from us! We have a list for you (though the order of the list might not necessarily be the order of appearance). We’re still working out the details on scheduling.
+ The Singing Springing Lark –by Elle (This one is up next!)
+ Doctor Know-it-all –by Gina
+ King Thrushbeard — by Louisa
+ The Twelve Huntsmen –by Elle
+ Jorinda and Joringel –by Gina
