Hi Mark: I was just wondering whether you might have any further insight on the upcoming release date? (I just checked and don't see anything new about it on the Moonstone website, or on the Moonstone Blog, or on the Moonstone Facebook page.)
As you've probably deduced, the reason there's nothing new about The Justice Machine: Object of Power
, on anything Moonstone-related is because the book is no longer coming out from Moonstone.
I'll most likely make an announcement as to the particulars of what we have planned for it in the next month or so...here and on my Facebook page.
I own The Justice Machine
property so it makes sense that I'm the one to determine what happens to it and with it...I do know that relying on the obsolete Diamond/retail store dynamic to render a final decision is essentially suicide at this juncture.
I knew that years ago, so it's not a recent epiphany on my part. I just wish certain other people had come to the same realization over the last couple of years.
Anyway, between my wife Melissa and I, we probably have fifty years worth of experience in publishing. I'll expand on all of that later, if necessary.
For right now, I can state positively that the next Justice Machine project is the High Gear Edition, Volume Two
compilation--and unlike Volume One, this one is in full, digitally restored, digitally enhanced color!
It is currently in production and it looks fabulous, if I say so myself. And I do.
Volume Two leads directly to the events of Object of Power.
Although you don't need to read the one to understand the other, it's just kind of a nice lead-in.
After that, we have to plans to compile the earliest or "Classic" Justice Machine stories as TPB volumes...here's a sneak peek at the mock-up of one of the covers.
We're dedicated to The Justice Machine
...with The Avengers
movie turning out to be the blockbuster of all blockbusters, there's obviously a great market for super-teams...and I happen to consider The Justice Machine
one of the most unique, interesting and worthy of revival--in whatever form.
