Also, ICYMI, the VoSS mini for chapters 1 and 2 is at the printer even now. Assuming all goes according to plan (AND WHEN DOES IT NOT AMIRITE), that means the mini will indeed be available at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle just a couple of weeks (table F-04); also HavenCon in Austin the week after that. So! If you’re impatient and don’t want to wait through the weekly updates to get the first two chapters, you shall be in luck.
And yes, I will make the mini available for purchase online, but I have to make sure I have enough for two back-to-back shows first. ‘K? ‘K.
