THANK YOU for your incredible patience. The two free comics are done and going to Ka-Blam on Monday. The giant 130 page behemoth is being sent to Ka-Blam for a proof copy and then we will print it in bulk.
WE WILL BE SHIPPING TO EVERYONE IN SEPTEMBER!
**Darrin will be locking down addresses, etc. next week and we are then printing labels and getting everything ready.
More this weekend - for now, sleep.

Here is the very last colored page -- the colored cover to The Coming of the Liberty Brigade - pencils by Mike Lilly, inks by Bob Almond and colors by the great Chris Sotomayor.
We hope to be printing in August -- we remain on track. Hopefully, printing even sooner!

We remain on track to get the THE LIBERTY BRIGADE books in your hands this Summer!!!!!
We've checked and fixed all colors; Mark Waid has edited every page; Lettering Team is now putting in all the lettering changes; we'll then proof and then send to the printer for the printer proof -- review that and then GOTO PRESS.
Our two bonus books - Mike Lilly is finishing the cover and Geraldo Borges is finishing two more pages we added -- none of this will impact printing -- these books will wrap in May and goto printer alongside the graphic novel.
THIS SUMMER - you should have all of these books in your hands!!!!
Little trivia contest - anyone recognize this Golden Age character -- hint- she may be American but her adventures took her all over the world! PENCILS by Ramona Fradon (at 95 years old!!!!) and Bob Almond inks.
Just where is The Liberty Brigade --

I want to thank everyone for your complete patience with us as we go about finishing the set of books comprising this graphic novel and opening tale of the Liberty Brigade. We are awful late and just cannot say "thank you" enough for you, the loyal backers for your patience and continued support -- here is where we are:
1. The Graphic Novel - the was solicited as an 80 page story and is now clocking in at 112 pages. Every single page has been penciled, inked and colored. We are just working on some patch panels and recoloring and finalizing the dialogue.
2. Heroes Origins - this was going to be 20 pages in the graphic novel BUT instead, as we said before, it is now a separate comic book that has doubled in size and is 40 pages cover to cover. The copies are all printed and here onsite.
3. The #0 Issue - printed by Ka-Blam and here onsite.
4. The Source File comic - printed and here onsite.
5. The Villains origin (regular plus variant covers) - this is an additional purchase and is printed and here onsite.
So, in addition to the extra 50 pages of art/story, we also added 3 more "thank you's" for your amazing patience and they are:
a) The Barry Kitson print - this is printed and here onsite.
b) The Liberty Brigade: Lost Scenes. This 10 page comic book features art by DC artist Geraldo Borges and has been penciled, inked, lettered and colored and awaits printing. We've been putting up some of the interior pin-up pages for you all to see.
c) The Coming of the Liberty Brigade - this will be 6-8 pages by artist Mike Lilly. The last page is being inked by Bob Almond and Mike is working on the cover. We are not too far away from completion.
So, we are up to about 70 extra pages which we think round out and make the story everything we want it to be and everything we owe to you-- our most patient backers. And, yes, we should have stopped adding things and just finished everything but we really wanted a phenomenal story for everybody and I think you are going to see we've poured ourselves into every page.
Last, everyone should have this on/before Labor Day. I know it that is a few months away but we need to wrap up the two books (color/print) and then get the graphic novel fully lettered. We actually should beat this date but we put in a little wiggle room. Darrin and the whole team are in finalization mode as we move to wrap up the final 2 free books and get them and the graphic novel to the printer. Please give us this time as we are nearly there and are working to get this finished and finalized.
