So, due to some complications with HAWAIIAN DICK #6, I think we’ll be juggling plans for the book, and moving a plan for the future up a bit.
Jason Armstrong (FERRO CITY, LOBSTER JOHNSON) drew the lead story in issue six, and is finishing up what was to have been the (unsolicited) issue seven. Since issue six is basically a stand alone story, and issue seven kicks off some new directions for some old characters, I think what we’ll be doing now is combining the two issues into the first HAWAIIAN DICK SPECIAL. Assuming it’s cool with Image and Eric Stephenson, summer 2009 will see the 48-page HAWAIIAN DICK SUMMER SPECIAL (HD #13 for those keeping close tabs), with two Jason Armstrong stories, some backup features, and assorted ephemera.
We’ll have to resolicit the third trade and add a few pages, but at this point that’s probably the best option.
