They look so pretty! Don't you want one of your own?

Finally, the long-delayed official announcement:

Galaxion Book 2: First Contact is available to order! Hooray!

Book 2 collects chapters 4, 5, and 6, plus the “A Matter of Principle” short story. It also contains a section with sample scripts and pencils, so you can see a bit of my behind-the-scenes process of comic creation. Plus you get the same sort of never-seen-before bonus illustrations you got in Book 1. All for only $18.00, which includes shipping!

For those of you who have been paying close attention, this is not going to be news to you. I’ve actually had copies here for quite a while, but for various reasons I’ve put off the “order now!” announcement. Still, if you haven’t clicked on the Store Page recently, here are a few things you might not know:

• PDF or CBZ format digital books (DRM free!) are also available to order, suitable for reading on your favourite mobile device.

• If you order Book 1 and Book 2 together, you get a deal: both books for only $30, including shipping.

• And with the purchase of ANY physical book, you also get a digital copy, for FREE! I figure, hey, if you bought a copy, you should be able to read it however you want.

At this point, some of you are probably thinking, “Well, that’s just great, but I already bought a copy from you,” maybe online or at a convention or even at a comic shop. “What about my digital copy?” Yeah, I do see your point. You should be able to have your digital copies, too! I know that it can be much more enjoyable to read a paper copy and turn the pages and flip back and forth to the best parts, but maybe you’ll want the convenience of being able to load it up on your tablet, and have it with you so you can look up the name of that strange engineer (without having to wait for website load times) whenever the need strikes you.

So I think to myself, “I’d like to be able to give people who already own the book their digital copies, but it’s not like I can ask people to show their receipt. How can they show proof of purchase? Wait—I know!”

Here’s the deal! You send me, either snail mail or email, a photo of yourself with your physical copy of Galaxion Book 1 and/or Book 2, and I’ll send you a digital copy! Simple as that. Keep in mind this is for a limited time only, so take advantage of this opportunity while you can! And if you know anyone who may not visit the site very often but has a copy at home, please tell them about the offer so they don’t miss out. Pass the word around!

I know there is a small potential for abuse with this offer, but I have faith in the goodwill and honesty of my readers. J Also, please note that this offer does not apply to the older Galaxion graphic novel (or “Black Book”)! We hope to get that all scanned in and available someday, but we’re not quite there yet. Thanks so much for your continuing support!
