Man that looks sweet. I have no designs to do web comics, and I'm STILL tempted to get it. Sadly money is tight.
Must. Resist. Shweet. Book.
Look at the size of this puppy next to the Sheldon books:

Chapter 10: Books (Brad Guigar)
Chapter 11: Conventions (Brad Guigar)
Chapter 12: Next Steps (Kris Straub)
Chapter 13: A Final Thought (Dave Kellett)
You'll notice, as soon as you start reading the book, that all four of us are heard from throughout the book — even in chapters we didn't author — by piping in via sidebars, or voice-bubble "chime-ins" to the topic at hand. It makes for a more interesting read, to see where four artists agree and disagree.
Here are some shots of sample pages:
But here is the bad news: I just found out that the book distributor's delivery to the Sheldon store won't be here until Saturday! Three days late, the bums!
Know though, that we're going to work double-time to get all pre-orders shipped out to you ASAP, as soon as we get 'em! Your support means the world to me, and I am personally going to make sure these ship as fast as humanly possible.
I'm all a giddy with anticipation. No need to rush though...I'm more than happy to wait for my Artist Edition.
It will become one of my most treasured possessions. I will stroke it and pet it and call it George.

This book looks awesome! I'm not a cartoonist, I can barely draw a line, but I'm tempted to buy this one! Nice book!
I know you will hate me for this one, Mr. Kellet but, is it my imagination or there are two "page 10" in the section "Book construction"?
Wonderful book! I love the layout, pics and screen captures. Cheers!!
Very cool news on the book, Dave!
I hate the be the one to point this out, but it looks like you have a typo (draw-o?) on the "book construction" image. If you walk through the pages sequentially, from 1, 2, onward, you will find that page 10 is shown twice and page 11 is left out.
Wow, that looks great to read, and I'm not completely there on the making a comic yet (probably once I finish uni i'll start posting something)
But i think I spot a typo in the 3rd pic, where all the pages are shown in order, the 11 is a 10
not that it matters any.
