First Previous Next Last
I'm hoping this page will appear eventually; it seems the site is
down again. Sigh.
Of course, this just had to happen on the day I planned on making
the following announcement:
Remember how I've never quite managed to get my act together and
create a WoB collection?
Well, that collection is finally underway. My plan is
to collect the first two years of the strip and publish a print
copy at some point in the spring, then to collect the next two
years and publish a print copy at some point in the fall.
Yeah, I should have done the first volume ages ago, but
procrastination is a powerful force, my friends. I'm
currently loading all the relevant image files into the main
document; it's going to take a while, since there are nearly four
hundred such files to deal with, and the colour ones need to be
switched to black and white. (If all goes well, there will
also be a special collection containing the colour comics
only...in colour, of
course.) I've got ninety-eight done now, and it's taken me
two days. After that, I'm going to have to deal with the
actual publication process, and that will take even longer.
Since I'm poor, I'll be using the print-on-demand service
Lulu. It isn't a perfect choice, especially seeing as it's
based in the US and is not always kind about international shipping
charges, but I can't exactly afford the overhead for anything
I do sort of want to get a Canadian ISBN instead of going with one
of Lulu's so that I don't have to pay American taxes (like...30% of
each sale. If I'm going to be gouged, I would like to be
gouged by Canadians. Gosh...that sounds dirty).
However, I have so far been unable to figure out how to
get a damn Canadian ISBN.
All the information online is five years out of date and
applies to a body that doesn't seem to exist any more. Any
help would be appreciated.
Anyone with advice and/or snarky comments should feel free to post
