Read TEMPLATE: After Vega yet? No? Get on that, man!
If you have, you’ve already seen the teaser for what I’m about to officially announce now: Beta’s back! TEMPLATE returns later this year with the next story in the series, entitled The Binary Code.
I don’t want to spoil too much since TEMPLATE: AV just came out, but eagle-eyed readers might be able to spot enough of the seeds planted there to get an indication of what’s coming. Beta’s going to be tested in a way that pushes her to the limits as a soldier, not to mention as a character, and I can’t wait for everybody to see what we’ve got planned. This world is up and running, so now’s the time to start playing with it.
Andres, Nathan and I are all excited to be back, but I’d like to formally welcome Ken Reynolds to the crew as the new series letterer. Some of you guys may recognize Ken’s name from the back half of Xeno Trip or The Round #0, but if not, no worries. Ken’s an awesome letterer and an even more awesome person, so it’s an absolute honor to have him on what’s likely our flagship series.
There’s not much else I can talk about since we’re early in the works, but I do want to make some things about the series clearly known now:
– Don’t expect to see this in print. Or at the very least, anytime soon. Unlike Season 1, TEMPLATE: The Binary Code is being formatted from the ground up for digital devices just like AV. I never say never to anything, but either way, the digital version’s going to be the best.
– Don’t expect to see a Kickstarter campaign. I said last year that I was probably done with Kickstarter, and nothing’s changed. We’re back in guerilla mode for this one. Simply put, we’re just making it and releasing it on Comixology.
I think that’s everything for now. For all of you that helped make TEMPLATE a top-selling Comixology Submit series for the second year in a row, THANK YOU. Your support means more than you can ever know and you’re the reason we’re coming back to this. If you’re new to the party, welcome! We’re glad you’re here and hope you dig it!
Talk to ya soon!
