New on-line story in April
Book 4 – Something More coming in early 2011
Short non-Beanworld comic in Fractured Fables anthology
And much more, including an appearance at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. Hey, I live in Toronto…
Apparently BEANWORLD BOOK 3: REMEMBER HERE WHEN YOU ARE THERE appears on the invoices for some, but not all, comic shops getting books from Diamond this week (which probably means only one of their warehouses got it before the cut-off for pulling this weeks books). So there’s a chance you’ll be able to get it on November 25, 2009, but double check before making a special trip. Otherwise, it should be everywhere else in the direct market next week, and could show up from other booksellers at any time (it’s showing up as In Stock on Amazon as of Nov. 29).
Update, there have been a few confirmed sightings. While the rest of us are waiting, here are some preview pages and a few words from long-time Beanworld fan Scott McCloud. Oh, and I think he did a few comics himself, in addition to his Beanworld fannishness…
Should be in stores in just a few more weeks, finally continuing the story after 16 years.
As mentioned a few days back, one of Dark Horse’s offerings for Free Comic Book Day 2009 was a sampler with four stories. One side is some Star Wars thing, and if you flip it over, you get some Beans, with Beanworld characters all over the cover (along with Usagi Yojimbo, Indiana Jones and Emily the Strange). A few more Beans decorate the table of contents, and then there’s a 2-page primer on the Beanworld, introducing the main characters and quickly running through the basics of a Chow Raid.
Nothing much new for the old hands at the Beanworld concept, but hopefully it’ll be enough to spur on the curiosity of a few of the people who see it and haven’t heard of the book before.
