"LIAR!!" you shout, pointing at the computer screen. I know, we've been here before, and look where it's taken us - seven months down the road, and nary a graphic novel in sight. Well, you'll be pleased to hear, they ARE in sight. In fact, as I type this at my computer, all I have to do is look to my left and...oh, yep, there they are, a whole box of 'em, smelling like fresh ink and looking like a gorgeous graphic novel. So this time, please believe me when I proclaim, "The trade paperback is here!"

I want to apologize for it taking this long to get the book into your hands. The long and short of it is that, as an independent book with an overseas printer, these things are bound to happen. The comic industry does not, unfortunately, thrive on timeliness. And as two folks who work differently, I can tell you honestly, we've felt the same way as you. It was in the hands of Fate...and the aforementioned printer. But look at the bright side. Instead of being the perfect Christmas stocking stuffer, the book can serve nicely as a warm Valentine's Day read, packaged together with a box of chocolates, cuz nothing says 'I love you' like a decapitated Bearded Lady.

The main point of this post is, of course, to let you know that tomorrow - Wednesday, February 13, to be exact - the graphic novel will be available at your local comic shop. If you pre-ordered, well golly, thanks! If not, it may be difficult to waltz in off the streets and pick one up, because we never know how many, if any, a particular store will order. If you have a hard time finding one, visit our fine friends over at Ape Comics and check out the store. The book in stores tomorrow is the graphic novel alone; if you ordered the Horrorwood: Director's Cut, they will be coming soon. If you haven't heard about this version, it is the graphic novel along with a DVD featuring extra content, like a half-hour interview documentary with the two of us called: Horrorwood: From Conception to Convention. The disc also features three classic films in their entirety, The 39 Steps, Indestructible Man, and the Vincent Price gem The Last Man on Earth. The price for the trade by itself is $16.95, and the Director's Cut is $24.95.

Well, that about wraps it up. One little side note...if you haven't checked out Astronaut Dad, Brent's follow up to Horrorwood, do it now. He and writer David Hopkins have crafted a stellar read in part one, and part two is sure to deliver. Find out more HERE.

Check back to the site, because we will be sure to update it as more info about both versions of the trade come at us, as well as future endeavors by your two favorite creators.

Until then,
All the best,
