Sometimes Christmas comes early, and this year (for me) it has. Little did I know what was going to happen when I woke up today and got in the studio, but you know it’s got to be something big if I’m posting a second blog entry in the same week. A little over an hour ago I got some surprising and exciting news from Chadhiyana’s publisher, Rosarium Publishing...
Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows issue 1 is available to buy on IndyPlanet.com starting TODAY!
That’s right. Exclamation points, capital letters and all. Not only is this a full ten days before the scheduled release date (July 13th) for Comixology, Peep Game Comix and the Rosarium Publishing store, but the inclusion of IndyPlanet into Rosarium’s distribution sites means something else I did not expect: print copies are available to purchase.
At first, I thought this was going to be a digital-only distribution, but I’m happy to know that Chadhiyana will be in print (I, for one, prefer print to reading on a screen--though I know not everyone feels this way). That means options for you, as well, depending on which you prefer to read your comics.
So, if you’re a Chadhiyana fan, new or old, or just hearing about her for the first time, head over to IndyPlanet.com and get your “early” copy of the first issue of the In the Company of Shadows storyline! I know I’m a bit biased in saying this, but it really is a great book, and I’m immensely proud of it. Don’t believe me? Then download or buy a print copy and read it for yourself. You’ll be glad you did--if not a little disappointed you have to wait two months for issue 2.
Happy Reading! Cheers!
EDIT (just minutes later):
In addition to the “early release” of the book on Indy Planet, the first issue also got another great review: http://www.blerdsonline.com/2015/07/comic-review-chadhiyana-1.html (you know, just in case you need extra convincing to buy a copy...)
