URTheory Rainbow Orchid Comp result

#1 · Posted: 5 Jul 2004 16:45
I just got an e-mail from Neill at Unified Review Theory, to say that I have won one of the three copies of “Rainbow Orchid” in their competition they just ran (Garen posted a link in the main “Orchid” thread)!
I have already got a copy of my own, so I plan to give one of my brothers a bit of a treat, and let him have the extra copy!
Has anybody else here heard from him (from Neill, not my brother)?

I went in the competition but I guess I didn't win a copy. It would have been nice, I guess I'll have to buy a copy.

Yep, I won one too! :P

And as I too already have a copy, I'll have to find someone needy...

Me (cough) I'm Australian (cough). Most honourable Paul!
(If that's not sucking up I don't know what is!)

Wow, two winners from tintinologist - that's pretty good. Well done chaps, and sorry you didn't win the third one, Tintinrulz. Wonder who did?

- Garen.

No problem Garen, I'll buy myself a copy. Thanks for keeping the price low!

I've kept the price as low as possible to cover printing and marketing and all that, but have certainly made a loss. But then I didn't do Rainbow Orchid to make a financial profit...

Orchid 1 is quite close to selling out, by the way, but you'll be okay for a couple more weeks certainly, if you want to hang on for now.

I may be doing another short print run, but that is only for prospective publishers (this time I'll do a good cover). However, who knows, a handful may sneak out!

When is Part II gonna be coming? I thoroughly enoyed Part 1!

We-ell... There's three answers to that (when is part two coming out?).

i) Episode 6 (ep. 1 of part two, the first 8 pages) will be out in September in the anthology, Fusion, from Engine Comics.

ii) A the Comics UK Festival in May I was telling people I hoped to get the collected edition of part two out around Christmas time (2004).

iii) Being realistic, I think the collected edition of part two is going to be a little longer, and I feel really bad about this, not least because I want to see it too. A more achievable release date will be for Comics 2005, around May next year. The main reasons for this include the fact that work has picked up for me (and I need the money), so I am busier, and I'm almost certainly going to be moving house around Christmas time (including all the preparation that goes into that in the months before hand). I can safely say it won't be later than that, though.

I can also say, having just finished the script for episode 6, that it will be good, at least I think so!
