Hi everyone.

So, Luna issue #3 is going to be done within the next couple of months, for sure. I dunno how long it will take to recieve after I send it to the printers, but yeah, [insert more words]. After that, I will try VERY HARD to have Issue #4 done in 2019, and then my monthly mini comic idea will proably happen in 2020 instead, because I also want to spend a lot of next year redrawing Volume 2 (the jail story)

As for the volume 1 trade, I'm not sure exactly how many comics it will collect, but I'm hoping to at least have a proof copy before the end of the year. There are still several people making drawings to be included in the back section, so I want to give a little extra time for that to come together. But that will probably come from Lulu or Createspace, and probably be printed at 6 x 9, because I always liked comic trades that were neither the biggest or smallest standard size.

I am considering putting the volume up on Kickstarter for the sake of inventory creation. I want to have something to sell to cons and bookstores. It's going to be over 100 pages in full color, so I don't exactly expect it to be cheap, and Kickstarter seems to be a good venue for promotion from what I've seen. I don't know about the practicality, but if it's not a success, well, I'll just print way less, and tell people to buy them online mostly. Anyway, if you're someone who drew a picture, who wouldn't want your picture in the book if it was on Kickstarter, let me know, but I'm just looking at it as a publication funding venue, not a way to make a bunch of money and abscond from the world(if I make enough to do that, I'll pay the guest artists first)

SO... Tell me if any of these are good ideas for a Kickstarter bonus, and feel free to suggest some too: pogs, sticker sheets, trading cards (with battle stats), a wall calender, travel brochures for fictional places, comic reprints with exclusive kickstarter covers, t-shirts.

Lastly, and stop reading here if words which are considered culturally offensive are going to bother you, I am going to make a couple of concessions to the culture I inhabit. It's just not a good idea to leave certain words, which are culturally considered offensive, in certain comics. I know this is an easy slippery slope argument, that if we remove offensive things then we slide into more things being considered offensive, and I agree with a lot of those points, but ultimately, a couple of words throughout the course of the series (like 2 or 3 changes) doesn't seem, to me, either worth the trouble they could lead to, or enough of the point of what I've written for me to die on that hill. These are all occurences that, when examined with a little bit of nuance, can be seen not to be promotions of those words, but analysis seems to be something certain content isn't afforded on a major scale all the time, so, eh, fuck it, they're gone, I'm not allowing for the eventuality. I'll try to replace them with equally hurtful, but culturally acceptable words. Listen, if James Gunn is going to be fired over ancient shit, a nobody like me won't stand a chance, and I'm frankly sick of going over it in my head, considering whether I need to do this or not, so, fuck it, I'm changing it.

Additionally, the one where I drew Muhammad isn't going in the book, but I was never planning to put that in, it's just a bad idea. If you'd like to include it in something you're publishing, or can think of an appropriate venue (like a free speech magazine or something) let me know, I would still like to see it have a home somewhere.

Mama Mia! It's another fanart. This one is really big.  The Trivial Tales Of Luna Lesser PINUP by shaunC

It’s the cops!
Based on the 80’s anti-drug ad starring McGruff the Crime dog! Go find and listen to his album, it’s real bad.

I changed a word. It's a word I think you probably shouldn't say, and although I don't feel it was misused here, I don't want to fight that 2018 internet culture.

Hilda
Hilda's a series of wonderful graphic novels by Luke Pearson, which I've been reading for thousands of years, even though the intended audience is kids, and I wholeheartedly recommend them, even if you're not a kid. It's going to be a series on Netflix on Friday, so I'll probably not get much work done this weekend, since I'll be watching the show.

Hey, I think you should check out the indie animation film "My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea," if you haven't already.  I think you'll like it.  It's possible you may like it a lot.  Being familiar with "The Poseidon Adventure (the original)," might make it even more enjoyable.

I feel like maybe I should watch The Poseidon Adventure, having looked it up. And this, having had it recommended just now.

There was a huge batch of "disaster" movies that came out of the 1970s.  Towering Inferno, Airport (and Airport Whatever-Year-It-Was), Earthquake, The Swarm, and I remember them all, which must say something about the house I grew up in, but the best one was "The Poseidon Adventure."  Which is still not to say that it was great cinema, but as a kid I thought it was awesome.  I remember also enjoying the sequel, "Beyond the Poseidon Adventure," as a kid, but what I can remember makes me think it was a Cold War / Miami Vice on a capsized ship with lots of shooting, and I get a headache just thinking about how stupid that sounds.
