Thanks for the warm welcome - I am very excited to finally be a part of the Atlas Archives Message Board!
Also, thanks for doing such a wonderful job on this site for all these years. Over the years, it has helped me in meetings and presentation as well as general research - and it is still a valuable resource today!
Hi to everybody else too! Thanks for the support, comments, questions, and for being interested in ATLAS. I look forward to getting to know you.
To Phil's opening question.....
Yes, our original release schedule has encountered many delays - causing my usually pleasant (and even) demeanor to vacillate between resigned exasperation and apoplectic rage. Thankfully, the circumstances that contributed to our lateness are largely solvable.
Many things contributed to the lateness, but the failure on my part was not to anticipate that people get sick or injured, have family obligations, have other professional obligations that compete with ATLAS for a creator's time. etc....
My plan to improve going forward is multi pronged and, now, seemingly obvious: get a few scripts and a chunk of art in the can before a story arc starts, have a more thorough understanding of my creators' other obligations, make a schedule with enough cushions built in that we can withstand a hiccup without getting far off, and, in a pinch, start writing and learn how to draw
I expect the 1st arcs to wrap up between October and year-end. GRIM GHOST finishing first with PHOENIX & WULF following. The TPB's should start before year end too.
ATLAS UNIFIED will debut at NYCC (where I hope to see many of you) this year with issue #0. We are very excited and I know you will be too!
Much, much more to follow!
All the best!
P.S. Phil, did you already post the PHX #4 B & White preview and the WULF #3 preview pages? If so, great! If not, please post, or show me how. THANKS!
