yes, it is coming out  through top cow , book 1  coming out in december, more details on that soon

so i want to talk details on the book itself
it will contain chapter 1,  but more than that it will be a sort of a directors cut of it.

by that i mean there will be additional pages, fun stuff to work through choppier transitions, and some nice moments
it will feature  improved artwork. sunstone was created during the times of a massive artblock and it has helped me  pull through it.

so i believe the book deserves better than just a cut and paste job.

writing itself will also be improved. choppier sentence structures smoothened out where needed.  grammar and spelling fixed while maintaining the conversational tone and pronunciation of words. so by no means am i going oxford english dictionary on it all XD

now for the big problem. this is pretty much gonna be the final cut of sunstone, and right now there are some of you going, so i will be missing out on   stuff because i either don't have the money or live  somewhere where it's  not likely going to be possible  to get the book.

well to answer that i will first remind you that sunstone has been and will be a free to read comic.  while i hope to make some money out of this  endevour, you will not be left behind.

my plan is as follows.

every 4 months one chapter of a comic book will be published, a 100ish pager

it will be published  in print and in digital to purchase 

as each issue comes out i will post the previous issue here in digital format.

this means, when book 2 comes out, book 1 goes digitally for free, and so on.
so in the end everyone gets to read it.

and yes, i am aware that this potentially means that people will just wait for the free version. not even buy the book. it is a definite possibility. it is one that would likely end the publication of it  as well  in the end

 but it is a risk i am willing to take. because ultimately if  this is not the case, and the book does sell well... i will likely double my efforts to keep the comic strips here  coming faster and with more additional stuff.

so only time will tell, but ultimately my point is, nobody will miss out :)

aand now back to work on the new strip.. damn thing has way too many extras in way too many scenes and its taking me longer than i expected XD

also, for the preorders and where to buy, be patient, as soon as the solicits go out and preorders open up i will post notices here :)

the upgraded version looks nice, but the characters do loose some frivolity in the process.

frivolity gets replaced by subtlety and nuance of expressions :)

i'd buy it even if it was for free on the internet already. just make sure to enable worldwide shipping :3

I just stumbled upon your comic through the 7th place in Bondage Awards (who voted for the upper six? Jeeeezuz!) and was blown away! Instantly (pre)ordered three issues of the first book and I will NOT wait for the free versions here on DeviantArt, but buy every single issue as soon as it's published, 'til the end! Keep up the good work... :-)
