    I know that my opinion is biased, as Paul is a good friend of mine....

    But Little White Mouse is a really cool book. I highly recommend it.
    The book is worth it. No doubt.

    And on top of that, Paul is a great guy. He is a genuine and sincere supporter of comics and comics creators. He's a George Bailey. He treats everyone really well, and when word gets out that he needs a favor.....we should all come out and help him.

    I will be ordering this book when I hit my shop this week.

    Well, I'm pretty sure I ordered it - I gave the comics shop the info/codes and money and they said they'd call me! That feels like a step in the right direction...

    Thanks much for the nice words, Josh. You're delusional, but a hell of a guy! : )

    @jdaysy: Absolutely a step in the right direction. Much appreciated!

    OK, folks. NOW it's official at your local comics shop; The DECEMBER 2010 PREVIEWS is out and my LITTLE WHITE MOUSE OMNIBUS is re-solicited in this edition.
    Page 272 in the main catalog, under Fiery Studios (my wife Jane's publishing imprint) for reasons too long to go into...
    Order number DEC10 0959, page 17 of the order book.

    Again, thanks for all of the great support shown here in this thread. It really makes my day to know so many people have my back.

    Paul - I was drawing all day at my LCS yesterday and I saw my copy LITTLE WHITE MOUSE OMNIBUS come in :) It looks gorgeous man.
    I'm gonna leave it in a prominent place it at the shop for a wee while before I bring it home, so folks can have a chance to buy it before me (in which case I'll order another one for myself :)

    And wonderful, it looks like my comic shop hasn't even ordered it yet. Despite me placing the order two weeks ago.

    I really need to find a new place.

    *puts up his hand*

    Mr. Sizer! I have a couple of things I'm curious about, if you wouldn't mind.
    I'm almost done the 3rd chapter of this but there's been two things with numbers that I've noticed and I'm wondering what they were meant to be. (I'll be as vague as possible in order to avoid spoilers for anyone.)
    1) Right at the beginning it says that the girls have to go 3 light months away but for the rest of the series they say it's 3 light years.
    2) When the group of people from the future first leave the leader says they're 10 years in the past, later on they say 20.
    Now, I know that neither of these really matter, but I'm curious about this because, well, that's just the way I am.

    PS: Thank you for this series. I love how much Loo grows and changes over time, as well as how the stories from the past are interlaced throughout to add more layers to the characters. I hope that Diamond will offer the other stuff you've done. (Or is there a way to buy them now?)

    Good manners, Warped, I like that! Let's see if I can pull some answers out of my butt...

    1) Right at the beginning it says that the girls have to go 3 light months away but for the rest of the series they say it's 3 light years.

    Yes, The Galactic Science Academy IS 3 light months away. Where Loo and P'heng's pod crash lands is 3 light years away. My idea was that the ESCHATON was headed (at faster than light speed) towards the space quadrant where Satellite 713 is located (which is also where TransGalaxy was doing illegal military testing) from the beginning. Which I admit is a pretty flimsy answer, and could have been better answered by me saying I made a mistake and should have put 3 light YEARS in stead of 3 light MONTHS. : )
    2) When the group of people from the future first leave the leader says they're 10 years in the past, later on they say 20.

    Time travellers are always bullshitting. After a while, "10 years, 20 years, who cares? We're from TEH FUTURE!" Another continuity gaff, because I was editing myself and that's stupid! : ) Plus, comic writer Tony Isabella once told me after reading that chapter: "Paul, I love LITTLE WHITE MOUSE, but why the Hell did you willingly write time travel into your story?!?! Are you crazy?"

    Seriously, thanks for the questions. There are indeed plot holes you can fly a space ship through in this series (I was younger and dumber back then), but I'm glad you like how Loo grows, which is really what I was focused on amidst all the time travel and robots.

    And yes, you certainly can order my other books (MOPED ARMY and B.P.M.) through Diamond right now! Here's some links:
    MOPED ARMY
    B.P.M.
    There's Diamond order codes that you can take to your local comic store for them to order.

    Thanks Mr. Sizer. It's always nice to get stuff out of someone's ass...
    Wait... that doesn't sound right... ah well.

    Both of those answers work for me; I laughed at your description of the attitudes of people from The Future.
    So far there hasn't been a reason given as to why the Bad Guys did what they did, but the ship going way further then it was supposed to could be a part of that!

    And don't worry about plot-holes... They tend to happen no matter what you do to avoid them. They're sneaky like that. Thankfully I can ignore them but editor errors (changing numbers, typos, etc) tend to stand out for some reason. If I have more questions do you mind if I put them up in here?

    Assuming I'll finish it this week I'll put a review up in the New Comics Talk thread this Thursday.

    Thanks for the links! I'll get one of my LCS to order them in for me.

    Post away, I'll keep an eye out and answer as quick as I can!

    The odd thing about LWM was that I literally was doing the series a chapter at a time, because the various companies who were publishing them (first Caliber, then Blue Line Pro) understandably wanted to make sure they made SOME money before they went on, so each 4 new issue series was somewhat of a surprise, and I had to expand given the chance. The last series (Open Space) was pretty much a sure thing, so I did plan more for that, and worked to wrap up all the loose ends as best I could. But in the beginning, I was all over the place, so when I was further into the series, I had plenty of "Oh God, WHY did I do/say/show THAT before? NOW I have to explain it!" moments.

    Reading LITTLE WHITE MOUSE, you get to see me figure out how the hell to make a comic series, right before your eyes. The amazing thing is that warts and all, I still got a lot of really dedicated and passionate fans who were and are really great folks saying nice things about it!

    hi Paul, i´ve just seen this & i´m going to order LWM & BPM tomorrow from one of the few comic stores that still open at Madrid. First time buying comics this way so, i have one question (just curious)... why the DOC from LWM you gave here is diferent from the one you have at your web?
    &... is B.P.M. under Fiery Studios too?

    Since i found LWM at WCN months ago i´ve been thinking about getting the printed edition & now it seems to be the right moment & the right Christmas present for myself since its an all ages book : )

    Hey Pupato, thanks much for the note! Sorry, I didn't change ALL the DOC #'s on my site, but the DEC10 0959 number IS the correct one to use.

    In a slightly confusing move by Diamond, my B.P.M. graphic novel is released under my own CAFE DIGITAL STUDIOS imprint (Fiery Studios is my wife Jane's publishing imprint, long story...)
    You can use DOC #OCT084169 to order B.P.M.
    Thank you very much for the support!

    Thanks Sizer!
    Hey... check it out. Just in time for Christmas!
    Read it on the train home and this morning and I'm about 65 pages in.
    I'm really enjoying it.
    Great work Paul. Its always a pleasure to find new stuff from talented folks... one of the reasons I LOVE the Whitechapel.
    Thanks again.

    Hey everyone, just wanted to take a second to say THANK YOU for the help with LITTLE WHITE MOUSE. My numbers came through and enough of you nice people went to a local comics shop and ordered that my Diamond rep was actually impressed. Of course they always want higher numbers, but it was a nice spike and it helps me keep on the radar for retailers and for Diamond themselves.

    Much appreciated, and thanks for the groundswell of support.
    In case you missed it, here's what's coming next for me. It's a tiny one, but I'm pretty happy with how it's shaking out so far. More as I get closer...

    Awesome, achievement unlocked! This is one of my favorite Interweb phenomena. A distributed group of like minded people can be coordinated to each take a relatively minor action during a window of time, and their little bits combine into a whole greater than their sum.

    Now I just need to carve out time to finish reading my copy...

    Although my first rule of mixtape is "no longer than 60 minutes".

    You're more disciplined than me! With all the remixes and extended versions that I put on, 90 minutes was a must! : )

    Well, mine vanished and after two visits they can't figure out how to remedy the situation. They say I should get a final answer by tomorrow. In case the shop can't find it, does anyone know any online sellers who (wisely) stocked up?
