I’ll be printing the first run of Cruiser Dynamo this week! I’d like to drop the preorders into the mail before the weekend!! Thanks for your patience, I was able to purchase shipping materials (gathering dust now) with your help!! Keep an eye on your email inboxes; I’ll be sending address verification messages sometime this week too!
Other agenda for the week is assembling the larger run for the contributors and reposting the order information for everyone else on the storenvy!!
Thanks for everything, all; the end is in sight!
looks tight as shit tho.
probably more important to post this here, eh?
I spent a mighty few hours in at work over the weekend (first time in a long time to HAVE time to do that wow) just to make some final-final-final tweaks (I’ll try to do the finalx4 tweaks after work this week argh melting, it just comes down to finalizing text positioning and aesthetics for like…contents and info, it’s funny how I’m literally most excited for this part the most?)
Here’s the subtitle font, the inner pages and spine have a variation of this style. Even if I couldn’t use the —free font uploady maker thingy— I intended to for this, all the work put into reproducing it digitally really shows in the proofs, it’s just so much cleaner…I guess there’s a lot more freedom in kerning by hand anyhow, it became something actually fun (even while going blind working on grids).
oh, the gloss paper I tagged last week with the cracky spine-fold ended up scoring and folding really freakin well too, so that concern is outie.
TESTING TESTING… UNFREAKINBELIEVABLE

Now accepting pre-orders for Cruiser Dynamo UNIT 1!
I’d like to open up pre-orders for Cruiser Dynamo soon! Probably around the weekend after Halloween. I’m still waiting on a bit of information from a few artists (who I’ll contact shortly) annnd the shop is still a bit steam-rolled (fortunately??)
(ahhh I wouldn’t have planned for an autumn release if I’d known we’d grow exponentially over the summer! The post-US new school season/pre-holidays are always busy, but dang, I just finished trimming 800 posters by hand today, whoop!)
slight delay .-.
The good thing is we’re swamped at the shop meaning mad dosh and O/T for me, the bad news is I pack up and go home when work is finished for the day, so no editorial things lately besides dropping the art files on the work computer…
Things should even out soon, this September was the biggest sales-wise the shop has had in 8 years of running….September is usually busy since kids are back in school, but usually not multiple city-wide expo/trade show and distro jobs busy…
I’ve sent out the e-mail requesting information from artists, email me if I missed you!
There are still some people who have not contacted me about the Giveaway! Please contact me if you spot your url «< over there «<. (the next giveaway will have a limit for contact time…)
I’m stuffing 500 contractor packets I brought home at this very moment…
AHHHH YOU ALL ARE WONDERFUL.
Thank you to everyone who has submitted work so far and thank you to those who have notified me of impending submissions! I’m so very happy and proud of you all for making this thing a real deal. There’s quite a lot to look forward to!
This deadline extension is for those who have expressed serious desire and discussed existing works previously. New comers, space is hitting it’s limits, email me (cruiserdynamo at gmail dot com) if you have confidence to make this deadline! Please do keep in touch! I will email those still working for confirmation. As things appear now, I would be willing to initiate CRUISER DYNAMO: UNIT 02 sometime next year, so consider that as well!
In the mean time, I will begin putting everything together this week and set up PRE-ORDERS soon after. Thank you all for your patience and time and hard work for the past…6 months!
