Hi Jason -
Thanks for taking the time to respond to everyone's questions! Also, I would like to thank you for the Atlas Archives ad that has appeared in all the Atlas Comics to date!
I have a few more questions for you...
How many issues will the Atlas Unified series run ?
When will the current series return after the first story arcs are done? Will the creative teams remain the same ?
Any plans to reprint the original Atlas titles? If so, What format are you considering ?
Great to be here - I'm having a blast!
ATLAS UNIFIED will be either a #0 plus 4 or a #0 plus 6 - followed by a TPB. I wouldn't normally wing it, but I am trying to strike a balance between giving the crossover enough room to flex its storytelling muscle, and not letting it get ahead of the character development in the individual series.
The second arcs will start up again in March 2012, allowing us to get both caught up (and release trades) and slightly ahead as needed. Haven't announced teams yet - shortly. No matter what, they will rock!
Considering several methods to release archived material - trades, reprinted issues, giant collected works, digital, etc... While nothing truly prevents me from doing this today, I thought I would get a bit more of the new stuff under our belts, then try to do some special things
All the best!
