Hey Jeff,

saw on your facebook page that comic book (maybe it's not a comic though) called revelation in the wink of an eye on your new merch table thingy, is that a new comic? I don't see it on the merch page of your website, is it possible to buy it somehow?
Thanks

That's my Watchmen book, I only printed a few of them to test it out...

"A handful of limited, signed/numbered first-edition test-copies of "Revelations in the Wink of an Eye: My Insane Musings on Watchmen, from Conspiracies to Stupidities," 115 pages, 20 years in the making!"

They cost about $11 each to print, which is too expensive, I've been selling them for $15 but they are heavy to carry and ship. I have to figure out a different way to format them and print them so I can make them cheaper and sell them cheaper. I think maybe I can make a re-edited edition later in the year, if I work on it a bit more!

Sounds nice, i wish i have had got myself a first print copy, 15 bucks for a 20 years work sounds like a fair deal.

I've sent like 5 emails to Tom K at Uncivilized Books, I don't really know what's up with that... back in the spring, when i first put out my own limited edition of the book, I had a meeting with Tom and he said he'd be into publishing an official version, via his publishing company Uncivilized Books. He said if I could get him a finished/re-edited/final-formatted version of the book by the end of July, it could perhaps be put on a print schedule and be released sometime by early 2018. I did the work and sent him the finished product in time, by the end of July, and then I never really heard any more about it!
I keep emailing him every month or so, hoping that something might still happen with this.
Also, I got an email from Nina at Rough Trade Books, saying that Rough Trade Books is looking for things to publish if I have anything that might work as a book, so I was thinking maybe they'd be interested in publishing this, if Uncivilized Books is not going to do it. But I haven't heard back from Rough Trade Books either.
I'm too busy with tour-booking and other projects to really put the time into seeking a publisher, I think that would take a lot of time, contacting people and sending the book out. Maybe if I don't hear back from these people I might just go with my original plan and publish the book myself, even though it might be expensive. I think it could be a successful item; I'm not scared about it not selling, I just get scared thinking about how I don't really know anything about book distribution and publishing and formatting, it would be easier for me if a publisher just did it! But I don't want to sit on it forever. I'll just publish it myself if I have to! Hopefully it'll be out in 2018, one way or another.
