:o Wow.... amazing! I'm really going to hate to see this end, but I'm going to love the payoff. :thumb:

Three questions:

1) If it's seventeen chapters how is it going to split? Both book 1 and 2 are 5 chapters each, so is book 3 going to be 7 chapters?

2) What happened to the colored chapters? Chapter 1 sure was purdy. :D

3) Are there still plans to make more of the Bios? Those were awesome too.

Either way, great job, guys. I really hope this becomes cannon.

Love the final pannel. Was looking forward to seeing that from the end of chapter 12.

Who needs color, when colour is MUCH better.

He's a bit updated Harbinger from Faith's team (#26 on.)

I put slight mods in for updates on a lot of the secondary characters to reflect the dynamic nature of the VHU. That and I added some new ones for fodder during the upcoming battle. For example, why wouldn't Thumper have a weight-suit that could also act as plate armor? The MI-6 SW's are updated, etc . . .

Not that it does them a damn bit of good. :twisted:

COOL! so could we like, bribe you guys to kill off certain characters that we don't like?

I wish I had that power with George Lucas. I wanted Episode 3 to be titled the Gruesome Death OF JarJAr....

1. It's kind of an odd split. We could have dragged it out for a couple more chapters but I felt it was time to get some pay off. If hard copies were made I guess book 3 would be a bit larger.

2. Color doesn't look like it's going to happen anymore. It's a shame because Ed was doing a killer job but things seem to have gotten in the way.

3. I'd like to have more bios. I think they could be helpful to those readers who are not familiar with the characters. IN the end it's up to Anthony and Stu.

When I started reading comics, I only got Black and white ones. Only latter did I get colour comics ~ mainly as their is more to chose from.

I like black and white, I think people apprechiate the art and inks more. Colour can inhance a comic, but can also distract from the artists work.

Just my thoughts. ~ Look at the tower block exploadeding its amazing. Colour can hid details.

A weird example is ~

Big boy and the rustry robot (mixed example), was a fantastic colour comic. Ment to be in colour and I feel looks better in colour. But have you seen the black and white version? the amount of detail is truely amazing ( althought confussing ~ like I said was ment to be published in colour)

So it looks like this thing will be at least 18 chapters. Maybe even 19.

I just caught up on this and continuing to love it. I enjoyed the line, "Impressvie. I actually felt that." Didn't Harada say that to Pete in Harbinger #25?

You can find the answer to this a handful of posts above. Short answer is it looks like no more color. :(
