5th Capsule for you!
As the title states, I will begin to post 5th Capsule again on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays in BW!
Through the generous support of my Patrons, I have been able to keep working on the book. I just finished page 82 today, and the Patrons are on page 77! So far they have been enjoying it immensely!
On Patron you get the pages double sized and in full colour which you can print out with ease.

100 page BW 5th Capsule book!
I am looking into making a simple, just story, very basic but good quality 100 page 5C book. It's be soft cover and about the size of a trade paperback. I want to try and make this as affordable as possible, while still covering printing costs.
It won't be on Amazon, so Ill have to mail it out myself, or sell it at conventions next year. I want it to fit into a normal full sized envelope to facilitate easy and cheaper mailing than say with commissions.
I have to look into it, but I am very close to finishing the first 100 pages and want to get something out there for you guys. I realize that holding a book in your hands is much more satiating then seeing it here online.
In order to raise funds to keep the book going, I will offer it with a head sketch inside, and try to keep it affordable. The print run might be limited, but I am aiming to have something by autumn.
Usually at a con a head sketch is 20 bucks, 20 bucks should cover printing, and 10 for shipping and paypal fees, so lets say around 50 bucks signed w/ head sketch and delivered to your door. That price could change, but that is the number I'm thinking. Maybe Ill through in an exclusive side story of 5 pages in there too to make it rare. Keep in mind it will be fully reedited as well for easier reading.
Later on, when I get all of Gradius's story done, I have other side stories planned. Ideas I had were how GG and Jess met, how Grad and Izan met, and other stuff too. I also want to get to the history of the capsules, but one thing at a time. A lot more politics and worldly issue with find their way into the story soon enough.
Grads story is about 300 - 400 pages. I want to do one of his uncle as well when he was Grads age, how he got married and moved up north etc races cars, etc.
Some loud thinking, but I want to make it happen!
Maybe I'll open for commissions in August, but I plan on also selling a bunch of Ibuki and SF pages for cheap to fund 5C!
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

I'm very eager to learn more about your world.
Put me down for a book and a headsketch
All those book ideas sound really good to me, man - sentiment of keeping it cheap as possible and offering personalised ones to those who can pay more to help keep the cost down overall is cool too.
May I ask, are you developing the story as you go along with the comic? Or do you have it all outlined?
