sunstone issue 1 both variant covers by shiniez

i am working on the last 3 to 4 strips of chapter 4, depending on whether they will grow monstrously oversized.

and now, for all of you who are thinking of buying the printed version


second cover is unavailable for now due to a fuckup with solicitation... which happens to me with EVERYTHING XD
but this cover will be made and i will post all the info on this when i get the exact date :)


for the regular ally/lisa cover version:

i will paste in a journal all the preorder links we gathered so far, thanks everyone who contributed :)


 here is an image comics preordering helper for those who know how to use this :)
imagecomics.com/comics/release…



bookdepository has it as well
www.bookdepository.com/Sunston…

with apparently free worldwide shipping....how that works is beyond me


now, some important info for people who want to actually buy the printed book , and haven't preordered it


preorders are crucial. this is not a book  you will likely find in any comic shop and just buy it there.  this is the fact of the business.

indie books aren't something stores buy in bulk and stockpile. truth is, they are rarely sure sellers, which means  that shop owners can't really dump an investment on stocking them as inventory and will rather use the money to stock up on a sure seller book, your marvel and dc books and your proven independent hits like walking dead, saga and so on

this is perfectly reasonable.  shop owners have bills to pay as well XD

this is where preorders and asking the store to put the book on your pull list helps. beyond that preorders generally dictate the size of a print run with indie books, so usually  if you are late.... and the book has not been a crazy seller....there is a likelihood that's all she wrote XD

meaning, the print was sold out and no reprint is planned

so , if you plan on buying the book consider the preorder, if not , it's fine with me, don't get me wrong, it's just, i learned a lot from my other comic death vigil about how this stuff works so now , i am a little bit smarter. and soon after death vigil is all done i plan on making a summary journal on experiences and what i have learned  from the whole  endeavor which might help some other  upcoming comic creator avoid  the pitfalls :)


so, here are preorder links i got so far, if you know of a store in your country that has preorders available feel free to note me and i'll add it to the list :)

so, in general, amazon has opened their preorders 

www.amazon.com/Sunstone-Stjepa…

it wound seem your reputation is preceding you, very nice :) so since its published under image they just ask them if they knew of a good artist that might be interested and "tada" your name pop up?

I believe I first started watching you after seeing the honeymood drawing on the front page, which would be... God, 2012? How time flies. 

Since then I've discovered your other work, but my favourite is still Sunstone, hands down. It makes me happy on a bad day and it inspires me in more ways than one. It just gives such positive energy off, along with excellent art. Thank you for making it.

All that being said, I am wondering - and I don't know, it might be weird so I'm sorry in advance - do you base the BDSM club and convention on your experiences with such places and events, or on stories, or your own imagination? 
Never heard of these places being quite this moderate (or sophisticated?) and the way you present them is really nice, that's all.

as with any kind of a club and convention, it is all about who runs it and how. yes some things are from personal experiences, other from conversations :)

also don't make a mistake to assume that crimson is  all that moderate. 

you just haven't really had any real look into it save for a few short instances.

reason for why you don't see much...simple

the story is not about the club



hooowever, chapters 6 to 10 we get to see alan's story,  his college days with ally, their friendship, experimenting, fallout and reconnecting. 

and we get to see quite a bit more  of the convention scene and the crimson becoming the club harper, and his partners irina and bob wanted it to be :)


also, you will see different kinds of bdsm people, all sorts of them as alan has much more face to face time with all of them XD  not all of them good i might add

I saw a news story posted that you were the new artist on Rat Queens.  Rat Queens is something I heard about and intend to pick up soon, so I looked your art up once that story hit.  That's when I saw Sunstone.  Man, I checked out a bunch of the strips and the story is right up my alley.  My wife was going to pick up our comic stack while I worked today, so I asked her to see if the comic shop could still get me a copy of the book even though I thought it was too late since it comes out in less than two weeks.  She said they already ordered five copies and would put one in my stack when it came out.  I'm going to pre order the rest as they are announced.  Can't wait to check them out!
