I know, I know… it’s been almost two weeks and where’s the newest update, right? Let me share a couple of things with you…
Next update is still in progress and I promise to have it up in a couple of days. The battle between Lucas-Icario and Azdruba continues, but I’m also in the middle of a tough battle as well, dealing with tons of work relating Turbo Defiant’s upcoming printed editions, both its English and Spanish version… not only doing art and dialogue adjustments (which there are still a good bunch of those pending) but also finding the best way to bring it to life and at a reasonable price.
The first thing I’ve encountered is that it’s completely impossible to put the first 80 pages in one single book for mass production. I mean it can be done, but it would be a very, VERY expensive book. As some of you know, I did a very short run of one hundred copies in 2011, but this was merely a thing done by enthusiasm that I didn’t exactly plan at the time, and as such, was not a profitable venture at all. A long run implies a considerable bigger investment, so I’ve to figure out how and where to cut the story so that we end up with a book anyone can buy. To get this done right is of ubber importance! I only got one chance to make this work.
I think the main challenge with Turbo Defiant is that I’ve always seen it as one single story that needs several books to be told. There are chapters, but those aren’t individual arcs for each book to solve separatelly, so it’s quite tough to find the best place to cut.
I’m still working on it and arranging and adaptating pages as I write this, I know many of you have been waiting for this and I can assure you that very soon you’ll be able to finally have it in your hands with a beautiful hardcover featuring entirely new, never before seen cover art. Badass Turbo HC edition.
So hang on, we’re not going anywhere and if you stick around for the following weeks, you’ll be here for pretty darn good news, as we’re going to make the impossible finally happen… I know, I’m not saying a damn thing. I can’t… but it’s gonna be AWESOME, so STAY TUNED
And Turbo ON!
