Print version coming soon!
A lot of you over the last few weeks have been asking for a print version. I wish I had firmer news, but all I have for now is that we're working on it.
There is a venue where I can sell them now, and in fact I was selling the B&W edition through them, but the cost is high enough (printing and shipping) to the buyer that I don't feel rosy about using it anymore. Moreso, the cost is ridiculously too high for a colour version. I am looking into other avenues to put forward an inexpensive colour edition of each book in turn, though, and one that will make shipping much less expensive for those readers outside North America. I want to make some money from these sales, for sure, but I'm not willing to soak the people who support me to do it.
It may take a little longer, and my apologies for those who are itching to curl up with a copy, but it will happen. Before the end of this year, you should all be able to purchase Book One at the least.

And take your time, it increases the chance that I will really have the money to order ;-)
I don't know how much options you actually have to chose from, but as you are already taking the international shipping into your decision, maybe you could also have a look what the methods of payment could be.
In Europe, for example, credit cards are not that widely common as in, let's say the U.S. And, as I can tell from experience ordering a picture from an american artist, sending a check for deposit or the like comes with quite a fee.
So Paypal or a similar method for international orders would be a good idea.

You can count on me for a copy or two, heh.

Actually, I figured out how I'll be taking payment quite a while ago, and I'll be able to use it for more than just books, but when I get into merch and selling original art pages as well, and everyone may be happy to know that it is PayPal friendly indeed.
The printing is really the question right now. I have a number of options, but if anyone has a suggestion, throw it out there!

Actually, could you tell me a bit about the options you're looking into, if you don't mind?
I'm checking what's available myself before fully starting my own comic just to be sure that what I do fits with the requirements.

SBM, I'll send you a note.

I personally cannot wait for these to become available in print form.
Pictures of You reminds me of Bone, in the fact that both are taking a long time to tell their tale (which is not in any way a negative thing,) and both are masterfully crafted genre stories.
I love the artwork, the writing, every aspect of PoY is just perfect.
Plus, when it's all done, you can collect it in an omnibus edition!

This is kinda late, but you can totally count me in for a copy when you have it all ready.
