Kontinuing With the Kaptain
I know that I said I was done talking about it, but I ain't. I am still working on putting together
the collection of my "Kaptain Keen & Kompany" comic book stories. The image at left of the good Kaptain (which will not be in the collection), pretty much sums up how the whole process of putting a book together feels to me.
First off, in order to keep the cost of the book down, I am eliminating the "bonus features" from the book. There were too many, and most of them looked crappy and amateurish. The book is better off without them. For those of you looking forward to that stuff though, I promise I will post most, if not all of it here on the blog.
As it stands now, the big selling point of the collection will be the all-new Kaptain Keen story that frames the book. The plot line was actually suggested by a reader of this blog. Fret not, he will be credited for his contribution in the book. The story, as it stands now in my frantic notebook doodles, makes me smile, so I hope that in the unlikely event anyone actually buys this book, they will not be disappointed.
By the way, the book will be called "The Komplete Kaptain Keen". My best-est buddy and co-conspirator on the book, Gary Fields, thinks that that is the best title, and since he, more than anyone else is responsible for it's existance (you can read all about it in the book's intro), we're going with that.
Now I just have to finish the thing!
