Physical Press Proofs, Paris Comic Con, and Patreon!

Paris Comic Con was a BLAST! As you can see, Paula (David's wife) and I are sporting official The Last Amazon cosplay suits! We had a truly wonderful time promoting Last Amazon in Paris. People really enjoyed the book and I know you all will feel the same. We have put so much heart and love into this epic graphic novel, and when you hold it in your hands, I know you will feel how passionate we are about this project and our growing studio!

NEAR-FINAL COVER ART!

David and I have been going back and forth both internally and with our awesome printer, Mark Vierra of onthemark.net and have near-final cover art to share!

The Last Amazon Expanding from 96 Pages to 128 Pages!

The Last Amazon Expanding from 96 Pages to 128 Pages!

Over the past two months as David Granjo and I (Jamison Stone) were finishing the final pages of TLA, we kept on having new ideas for really awesome art and story elements. Because of this, we constantly were asking ourselves, "Do we add these super cool new ideas to this book, or postpone them to book 2?" It was a really tough call, honestly. Every extra page costs us more money, especially with the super high-quality printing we are doing for The Last Amazon with "OnTheMark". And because we are using sewn signatures (head and tail bands, case bound) our pages come in bundles of 16 per section, so we can't just add only 1 page at a time!

The Last Amazon Update - Printing Details Finalized!

David and I are starting 2018 with a big update and some very exciting news! We just finalized our book specs with our printer, Mark Verria, the CEO of “Onthemark”, and sent him our down payment which secured our order, making it "official!" Yay!

Now, you might be thinking, “Finalized? What do you mean, Jamison? I thought the book specs were done before you started this Kickstarter.” And yes, they were, BUT David and I decided that The Last Amazon is too good to not be better, so we, like any sci-fi lovers, got UPGRADES!
