If AM were to get printed...

Inquiring minds want to know, would you want a printed version of AM? (in particular, would you want to have the older archive printed?)

If you print AM then print old stuff too.
Sadly from the darkest corner of Europe I have little chance to buy it :P

Print the whole figgen thing all in one book! I'll buy ten copies and pass them on to my descendants!

I would love to see the old stuff just as much as the new stuff.
And Dreaker, why wouldn't you be able to get a copy?

Turnips!? What should I do with turnips??? I'm sitting in the Carpathian Basin. Erdély (a.k.a. Transylvania) is in spitting distance. Werewolves, vampires and who knows what. And worst of all the Copper-Penis Owl is native these parts!

And Dreaker, why wouldn't you be able to get a copy?
Unemployment.. HUF/USD rate is a nightmare.. Also the shipping price would be a sky high

Just looked up the exchange rate and I really feel sorry for you. Vampires, eh? Ok, then, we'll send garlic instead of turnips. That should help.

1 U.S. dollar = 225 Hungarian forints
BUT
Many US based corporations change 1USD for 1 EUR
1 Euro = 290 Hungarian forints
We got screw on big time.
(btw these are pretty good rates. Best in the last few years I think)

Dreaker, if it happens, maybe we will try to see what we can manage!

As nice as one big book is, keep in mind that this wouldn't be a large print run (at least in terms of print runs!), so it'd be a bit more expensive than many books you see on store shelves. Think sofawolf press prices.

Smaller books would, therefor, be more affordable... it'd still probably be $20-$25/book. Doing the whole comic as one big book might push this to $80 or more!

You're right on that one, Cal.  It would get pretty hefty.

I went over it this morning, and it's 115 pages of content, give or take a few details of added pages and footnotes for the printed version. And it won't include Nemesis (I so dearly want to complete that simple, old storyline)
After all is said and done, it will be 116 pages of comics, footnotes, a cover for that series, and pinups in the back, at 8x10.5 inches (the size and thickness of a magazine) and the cost would be about $20 for anyone to purchase, plus shipping and handling.


The plan is 100 copies of it, regardless of the type of book.  It's a huge investment, my friends and I are looking at kickstarter or indiegogo or some such places for this.  No solid decision is made yet.    I'll take suggestions if anyone has them.
