MINDS update, question
A quick update on Minds:
I've completed about 240 pages of the work for the book, and all that remains are the pages sourced from negative "copydot" scans and print copies, which I'll be tackling after the layout stage.
Unfortunately, I have an incomplete set of facts (actual facts, which I prefer to alternative ones) regarding previous printings. Cerebus collector extraordinaire +Nate+, who maintains a list of printings of the different books, accounts for four printings of Minds in total.
First printing: (limited signed and numbered) June 1996
Second printing: June 1996
Third printing: June 1998
Fourth printing: August 2001
However, the copydot scans that are all that remains of the original negative, were scanned by Lebonfon and have file dates of 10/23/2008, suggesting to me that there was a Lebonfon printing of this book sometime after this date.
SO! Do any Cerebus fans out there have a copy of a (labeled on the inside) FIFTH printing of Minds? If so, does it say Lebonfon on the interior?
Edit the Second: Cerebus Volume One, the SUPER SPECIAL REMIXED REMASTERED WITH ENHANCED BASS version is at Diamond now and available to order from your local comic store! And man o man o man, does it look good. Months of work plus impeccable printing by Friesens of Manitoba plus really anal-retentive proofreading and 6,500 page afterward= the best book of this project yet. Let me know what you think once you've picked up a copy!
