That is good news - as long as this publisher can get them out. The previous publisher was HORRIBLE at getting these on our shelves.

Lisa, I agree. I dropped Tenth Muse last time because the book didn't ship regularly, and I wasn't impressed with the last publisher. I am hoping that Atomic Pop does better!

APA is going to be releasing all the previous 10th Muse books into 7 volumes of trades, w/ 1 trade focusing solely on all the Muse x-overs and 1 trade (the last volume) featuring all the "lost" issues not published through Alias.

Should be a great way to put all your 10th Muse-y goodness in one place.

Shon, thank you for that information! It sounds like it is going to simplify becoming reacquainted with the character a great deal. This is very exciting news!

Shon_C_Bury said...

Yeah, it should be an easy way to get your 10th Muse on. The first vol ships in May, we skip June (June we're publishing Phantom Jack and my own Nox in what we must call Everyman Month), July we're back w/ all the 10th Muse x-overs (Shi, Ezra, Savage Dragon, et al), then we're back to the serialized books in Aug and beyond. 7 volumes in all.

That's a lot of bookshelf space dedicated to 10th Muse.

Oh, and YEAH...all new covers.

Shon, you had me at "all new covers". :-)

That is wonderful news!
