The Annotated Xombi
A few days ago I mentioned that I'd been considering something as a way of giving back to all the fans of Xombi for being so supportive of this series, as short lived as it was.
Now that all six issues have been published and everyone has had a chance to read them, I thought about taking some time here to go through some of the comments and questions I've seen posted on various message boards, blogs and websites and address them. Additionally, I thought about going through the series and giving some behind the scenes looks at what inspired some of the material, what references there might be, and some other general process stuff that I think won't take away from the reading experience.
If anyone is interested in seeing something like this, please let me know. If you have any questions, or comments of your own regarding Xombi that you'd like me to address, please leave them in the comments box below. I'm not sure how soon I'd be able to get this up. It depends on my workload. I would like to dedicate enough time to this to make it a worthwhile venture. November is traditionally my lightest month, so most likely it would happen then.
Please spread the word so that people are aware of this.
In the meantime, please also note that a trade paperback collection of Xombi is scheduled for February. Please order it through your local comic book store or independent bookseller. It's also available at Amazon.com here and at the link below.
