Despite the resounding impact of this morning's startling revelation (see below, 10:45 post), I have recovered sufficiently to add the following semi-revelatory tidbits and nibbles.
Anyhoot, in honor of this new collection in trade paperback and Gene Colan's recent announcement of retirement, John Rovnak and Panel to Panel.Net is offering this signed b&w print featuring all-new Gene Colan artwork with every copy of The Montesi Formula. This print is available only at Panel to Panel.Net, and is in limited supply.
Also available are exclusive signed bookplates and prints by Rick (Can't Get No) Veitch and Bob (Recess Pieces) Fingerman, with more exclusive bookplates coming soon for Rob Walton's Ragmap (highly recommended!), Rick Veitch's brand-new collected edition of his first-ever graphic novel Abraxas and the Earthman (I've held a copy in my hot little mitts, and it's also highly recommended and blows the old Epic serialization production and printing out of the proverbial water!), and Mirage Studios' Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Collected Books Volume 1, as well as the Panel To Panel.Net exclusive Runaway Comic #2.1 by Mark Martin.
So what are you waiting for? All this booty and more awaits you
