in the house!!!

Here it is the 3rd incarnation of Colossus hits the stands next week. You can buy it at any comic book store and or at Amazon on line. New cover ( for avid collectors who want all three) new lettering by Sean Konot, new Title ( cause I can't afford to compete with Marvel comics legally- but that is for another blog) The book is totally awesome.

kicks butt!!!. So go out there fans tell your friends buy them all up so we can run another print run, perhaps even several so they'll be enough interest to do Tales of Colossus the movie!!!!!

I absolutely love it when Grimon tries to jump into the moat after being burned by the hot oil from Colossus, only to be speared and ripped back onto the bridge to melt in pain. You sick thinking individual. Awsome!

That's really cool of you Mandrews, but to be honest I wouldn't feel right just taking something from someone. Is there any way to compensate you for your time and kindness?

Cool! but whats with the 3-6 weeks to ship?

2:50 PM  
Blogger MANDREWS said...

Idiot Circus Boy--- Nah no worries- i'll send one over with Raul. What size.

Colonel Moustachio----- i have no idea, get to the comic book stores this wed/thursday and get one with your own two hands I guess. Thats wild, 3-6 weeks for delivery. Even I would go crazy.

Got the book today, Mark, and it looks great. If I wasn't high on cold medicine, I'd read it right now, but as is I just sit there slack-jawed, not understanding a thing.

And if you do come to the Seattle Con as Ovi mentioned, I'll see you (both) there.

I read the second print of "Colossus". Awesome work! Dramatic and powerful = Norm loves it! I haven't seen "One Man Band" yet. Is it going to play before Cars?

Also, your story pitch on the Samurai Jack season 2 DVD was very inspiring. You rule!

Ov!----Thanks fellow Image brother. as for coming up to Seattle con Its a no go. Im to busy on this new movie Im working on. Pedal to the metal. You are one of the few who have all three. So I salute you.

An Eisner???? I don't know....

bustedacres---- get well soon. Enjoy the book.

Norm----Im glad you love it norm. Yes OMB will be infront of cars. lemme know what you think. I love on the Samurai Jack season 2 dvd how they run the show right alongside the pitch. I also like the crossdissolve time lapse editing to keep me at speed. heh heh

I can't say enough good things about this book, Mark, I'm so glad it's finally out, it's like the end of this long process and it was totally worth it.

Seeing it today at Comic Relief was like coming full circle from the first time I bought it, the book is still awesome! Congrats!

Rock on brother, talk to you soon,
