O Men 2.4

So finally, it's DONE!!! All thanks to my workmate and part-time music legend Bob Kelly (http://www.kellysheels.co.uk/index.cfm - turn the sound down, it's loud) who put the PDF together for me. Soooo many headaches with this one but it's done now, so I'm moving on with my life lol.
Copies going out today...when I've stapled them...

Mart said...

CONGRATS!!!

Mart said...

thanks!!
got it all done - and then my stapler was refusing to staple ANY of the copies. another anti-O Men twist of fate? well not really, i was using the wrong stapler (the old one, that doesn't work). phew

Rol Hirst said...

How do you afford to publish for a quid? You got your own printing machine?

Mart said...

okay i'll let you into my trade secrets - altho you prob know a lot of this yourself, rol, from your indie experiences.
omen only costs 5p per side, so for instance, the new issue came to 80p per copy (I print the covers up myself). The only reason i charge a higher cover price is for when I sell it in shops where they take a slice off the price. if people go to the effort to contact me or order thru my website i'm happy to charge as little as possible. so 20p profit per issue - better than nowt innit lol
As long as I don't lose money on this, that's fine, i'm happy. i'm never gonna be a millionaire on it am i.

don't say that, you never know -- Marvel might rip-off one of your storylines, and then you'll be able to sue them for a million :-)

Quids in!

Mart said...

oh marvel and dc can steal what they like - they'd only mess it up lol. a lot of comics really do suck right now.

Is the issue part of a crossover? I've been trained by Marvel and DC to only read "important" crossover tie-ins now.

JamieB said...

2.4 has arrived safely. Another cracking issue -- all the usuals: well-structured, improving art, neat plot twists :-) A completely satisfying read.

One thing: Kelly says the Vultures are out to eliminate the pop. of the world *without* drawing attention to themselves. Doesn't that make them "anti-terrorists", or some such thing? As described, creating terror seems to be the last thing on their minds (whatever they are about). "Indifference-ists", perhaps? feh-ists? :-)
