Thanks man, it's a bit rough around the edges but it was definitely a labour of love. The beginning of the next issue is almost finished.

Here's the first page:

This looks really interesting. I'm bookmarking it to buy it when I have a little extra cash that I'm not pouring into my own comic.

This looks dope. Grant Morrison-esque. Am I correct in assuming that the version on Comixology is a single issue, and that the paper version available on Amazon is the whole series?

Not really.

The issue on Comixology is an abridged version, without the docufiction portion of the book. That part of the book was illustrated prose and not compatible with the guided viewing feature they use and the digital file was too big. They really liked the sequential pages, so they asked me if I could re-edit the book to make it fit.

Liam, cards on the table I have always found you kind of over aggressive on these boards..... That being said I have a lot of respect for the amount of work self publishing this book takes and so I kicked you the $4 (or whatever your take after Amazon gets it bite). Art work looks good. Going to read it this week.

Gotta ask is that Bubo the owl from Clash of the Titans ? :D

Best of luck with your sales.
Pull List: MARVEL-A Force, Ultimates, Captain Marvel, Thor, Ms. Marvel, Spider-man, Spider-Gwen, Squadron Supreme, All-New Wolverine
On the Cusp: Dr. Strange
Didn't make the $5 cut and dropped before first issue: All New Avengers, Illuminati, Contest of Champions, Amazing Spider-Man, Silk, GotG, Inhumans

Other-Gotham Academy, Ragnorok, Lazarus, Providence

Finally got a chance to read this over the holidays. I really like the art style - it reminds me of wood block printing. Not necessarily a criticism, but I am curious about your intended audience. As someone familiar with the material, it was kind of entertaining to match up the "fictional" characters with their real-life counterparts, but I thought it might be too confusing for a general audience. I imagine most people could figure out the presidents, but beyond that the altered names of CIA personnel, etc. might be too confusing. Just a though. Nice work overall, though - you obviously put a lot of effort into it.
