that was easy to read yeah why was it that it was coming
out nov8 now it is nov22
You wouldn't believe how much problem solving, extra phone calls, fed exes,
faxes, examples, and other improvisions and triple checks it takes to insure
that a book of this size and production value is printed as it is intended
There is so much margin for error and as much as you eliminate that
margin, new problems arise.
I think I sent the finished plan, dummy book, pagination sheet and new
art to the color seperator in August.
After the proper approvals, it them made it to the printer in Canada.
After reshooting films that could not be found, sending examples of
how to do certain printing techniques and embossments and reapproving the
placement of pages and solving new problems and mis-comunications that
arrive, I think it is now finally on the printing press

in Scarab? (Butchy Stubbs)
I really liked the new Scarab issue but I was disappointed to find that some of the art images that I really like in the previews ad weren't in the actual comic. I noticed this happens a lot and was wondering
if the art is going to show up eventually in another issue of scarab or is the art changed at the last minute or what the reason is for this?
Some of the and pages have been switched around, redone or recut to
best fit some of the new directions in the order the story is told in.
I love thos pages too though, and I assure you that you will see the complete
story, and for the pages that have been redone or did not make it into
the final cut of the Scarab series, we will put them into the Scarab Artbook.
I also love the idea (from Rick's above post) that we include his illustrated adventures from Japan in the Art book.
