Well, THAT Was Rather Unexpected

Those of you looking forward to getting a print copy of my third Doctor Whooves comic, Garden Of The Daleks?

I'm afraid there's been a wee snag.

The printer that I used has suddenly decided they don't want to do it and have cancelled my order.  I personally suspect it's because of the brony community -- after all, they can be a noxious bunch of narcissists.  They will continue to print sketchbooks (which, let's face it, are pretty much wholesale copyright infringement themselves), but not my fan comics.  I don't know if they are doing anyone else's fan comics and, if so, what they have told them, but it doesn't matter.  They have politely declined my stuff.

Now, I am not going to talk smack about them and none of you better, either.  Fan projects are a legal grey area and everyone has the right to say, "...yeah...gonna pass on this one."  They don't even have to have a reason, they can just pass.  And that is their right.  Disappointing?  Sure.  But that's the breaks.

I'm currently hunting for someone else who will print the comics on demand so I can have a few to give away at cons (anyone with suggestions, I'm listening, bonus points if they can do sketchable covers).  I'm not sure if I'll have them ready for DanCon at the end of March, though.  I'm hoping so, or at the very least, find someone to enable them from this point on.  But I've got some homework to do, and I don't know how long it will take.

And those of you with the first two issues?  Congratulations, those are now rare collectors items.  I'll be watching eBay to see what you do with them.  ;)
