COPRA 25 cover DEC

COPRA #25, the Double Size Anniversary Issue, is finally here! 

This marks three years of Copra-making, that’s a big deal to me. Three years of trying to get these issues out month by month (albeit with a couple of breaks between 6-issue arcs this past year) — that’s a lot of face time at the board. For someone who is hyper-critical of his own work, it’s odd for me to be happy with the total results of such an endeavor (definitely in a more abstract sense; I cannot look at old pages, no way). I wouldn’t dedicate my life to this if it didn’t fulfill me this much, so it’s definitely a labor of love. Issue 25 isn’t just another comic, it’s a celebration of the mania that keeps it all going.

About the comic itself, it’s a flashback issue, a glimpse into the mission that turned it all around for our crew. It features some old favorites, Vitas and Man-head in particular, as well as some newer faces. It’s a perfect jumping on point, actually, even if you’ve never read Copra, since you can read Copra #1 pretty much right after this issue.
