I mentioned yesterday that the publishers of the SIX DEADLY SINS PORTFOLIO (the "missing" sin is "Lust" by the way: it wasn't yet one of Cerebus' "Acquired Tastes", the one that would prove his undoing) dropped a really ugly magenta and electric cyan onto my black and white original cover without mentioning to me that they had decided to do so. I am pleased, thirty-four years later, to present the cover as it had been originally intended.
Can I kvetch a little more?
They had been supposed to mail me the "Sloth" plates which I could sign and number at my leisure at home and then ship back to them in time for the San Diego Con. Instead, they whisked me directly from the plane to my hotel room and had me sign and number all 1750
It wasn't the best introduction to San Diego, California or Comicon.
I have to say, developing TCOP, one of the problems was "How do we make ALL of these available?" I mean, I can pick my favourite SIX DEADLY SINS plates, but all that's going to do is stress everyone out as to HOW and WHEN they can get the other four or five or whatever.
We'll be posting another DEADLY SIN as the countdown picks up steam
I think we came up with a good solution.
