    For anyone who's not aware, for the last 6 or 7 months I've been working slowly but surely on a short self-published comic called Signal. There's an old progress thread here, but I've now completed the project, and am in the process of getting the first batch printed! I've already donated the first hand-made copy to The SETI Institute, and was totally jaw-dropped when it was auctioned at the first SETIcon to Robyn Asimov for $1200!!

    There are two editions:
    A paperback edition that you can pre-order now for £6 here.
    And an extremely limited run, made-to-order hardback edition that you can read more about and see samples of here.

    You can find more info on the project on the about page of the site, here, and below are a few samples if anyone didn't catch them in the earlier thread:

    Signal, page 1&2

    I ordered 2 of the paperbacks - one for me and one for my best friend who also enjoys this type of thing - thanks for making Christmas easy Paul

    unfortunately I forgot to put the note to sign the copies because, I'll send an email to see if I can fix that though.

    it looks absolutely gorgeous

    Paul - Thanks for the heads up that they are ready. I've ordered one as funds are tight at the moment, but I will probably end up ordering a few more as holiday gifts in the near future. Cheers!

    The sneak peaks have looked beautiful, I'm sure the final product is even more so.

    Ordered mine earlier this afternoon - looking forward to getting my grubby mitts on it for sure..

    Nicely done with the auction too - good work all round Paul!

    Thanks so much for the compliments and pre-orders! :) Your copies will be in the mail on or before the 1st December!
    @LBA
    No problem with the signing! I got your email, so I'll remember to send out signed copies.

    @Paul I forgot to request a signature as well, i've emailed too, if it's an inconvenience to deal with this from too many people, don't worry about it.

    Hi Paul, you're not bringing any to NYCC, correct?

    @Frekky
    Thanks, I got your email and have made a note, you'll get a signed copy when they're posted out :)

    @ales kot
    Unfortunately not. I guess there's an extreme outside chance that I'll get them in time to bring a few, but I doubt it.

    Paul:

    Thanks for letting me know!

    @Contumacy_Singh
    Yep, that's the "with international shipping" option (since I'm in the UK).
  6.  (8964.18)
    I'd not known of this till some of the frames came up in your DeviantArt the other day, mainly because I live in a bubble. I will however be buying this because I think it looks preeeetty.
  7.  (8964.19)
    For those of us who ordered but just didn't see the International Shipping option, is there a way to go back and fix this?

    Knew I shouldn't have ordered it while in a hurry.
