My story "Honolulu Lorie's" was suposed to be in #3 but along with a whole lot of stuff got bumped back to 4 when they realized they had over sold the seats. Some awkward moments there when i found out and i've been sitting on my hands till now to make sure it was for sure going to be in this one - "cut due to too much goodness" is generally not quite the message editors probably want to send if you like a story. But bygones, all's good now, and i'm excited to see how my baby looks in print and the company it'll be keeping. The Popgun series is damn impressive, very proud to have something in one now.
If you liked that proses post by Ben you'll maybe want to look at this Flickr set for Lorie's, documenting the creation of the art for the story. The script was first written in a bar years ago in the mid 90's on a napkin hanging out with some drunken scumbags and dear friends. Funny because i don't drink but they could never tell they say.
Sadly i can't get to LA for the launch party at Meltdown, but if you're in the area you can keep up with the news about that probably here on DJ's site.
