After 3 long years… PC Weenies Annual #1!

It’s been almost 3 years since I have collected the PC Weenies in print. (That’s an eternity in the Internet time.)

PC Weenies Annual #1 is a 46+ page comic book that I’m planning to print in time for the Small Press Expo this September. Here are the facts on the book:

  • It will feature the complete Maude Weiner storyline with a few bonus goodies thrown into the mix.
  • The final page count will be between 45 to 50 pages.
  • It will be comic-book sized, similar to what you see on newsstands, but with a higher page count.
  • I hope to have a brand new sticker-bundle option to offer with the book as an exclusive for all pre-orders.
  • The book should ship in early September.

I will be setting up a pre-order page soon. I’m hoping to secure enough orders to be able to afford a print run of at least 100 books.

The interior layout of the book will be landscape. Unlike the previous PCW / UNcubed Samplers, I have opted to make the interiors landscape so that the art is larger and the text is much easier to read.

I’m still torn between going with a portrait or landscape-based cover. Below are rough comps for both to show you where I’m at with the design so far.

Tentatively, I’m leaning towards the landscape cover. Which ever cover I end up going with, I’ll have the other one included within the book (or as an exclusive collectible print).

portrait cover PC Weenies Annual #1 (roughs)

I’ll be finalizing both covers tomorrow, so check back in if you’d like to see how they look. And, of course, I hope to have a pre-order page up and running really soon, so you can order the book.

And as for PC Weenies Book 2 (the follow-up to PC Weenies: Rebootus Maximus), I finally have enough material to begin work on assembling all the pages together. I hope to have that book printed and available for sale before the holiday season this year.

More news as it develops…

    will you issue any special artist copies?

      Yep – I might make the comic a bundle deal. Tentatively it will automatically come with a print and sticker. Artist Editions will also include a custom sketch.

    Not a terrible idea Martin, depends on what Krishna wants to put on the back anyway :p

    I like them both, but I really prefer the landscape version. The X over Grandpa is just great.

    Mike, Mike, Mike…NONE of my ideas are terrible.
    Not as good as Krishna’s, of course, but NOT Terrible…

    As for the “X” – remember, “…the most unkindest cut of all…” ?
