Yes, finally, The Collected Beowulf ships in November from THECOMIC.COM, in both trade paperback and snazzy hardcover editions. Pre-order it today, and remember - Christmas is just around the corner, so get copies for all the academics and fantasy buffs in your life. For more information on the book, please visit:

Thanks!

I am looking forward to this. I saw this months and months ago on your website and was very impressed. Now my question is this? For the ~$15 more bucks than softcover you are offering hardcover version. I don't see anything (like authograph, additional sketches) which will make people buy HC???

the HC is SNAZZY. You PAY for SNAZZY. Just like "real books" (no offense Gareth, just another comicbook misnomer). Gareth's stuff is great, I highly recommend it.

It's true, you're paying for that elegant and expensive binding. The logistics of signing all the HCs and getting 'em out in timely fashion seemed a bit too hairy. But who knows, I might change my mind between now and November [img]http://209.198.111.165/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

Actually, I'm now looking into doing something cool and funky with the endpapers, quite possibly including signing them. So that should be a nice bonus for the buyers of the hardcover.

And btw, a big thank you to everyone who came by and bought Beowulf at the EXPO, it was a tremendous show.

Silly Jack. Of course I will be in Vermont for Thanksgiving, and I will stop by, and I will sign the HCs (and the TPBs as well, if you like).

But like I said, I think the HCs will be signed on the endpapers (which will also have some bonus artwork printed on them).
