COPRA #24 is here! Dissension in the ranks, loose ends are tied up, twists & turns are introduced, and more than a little hands-on conflict: this issue has it all! There’s no better way to celebrate the 24th issue of the world’s greatest action comic!
Dieter VDO closes out his serialized portion of the comic with a terrifying, beautifully painted conclusion. Receiving his back covers for these last six issues has been one of the run’s highlights.
I started this whole thing – this COPRA thing – with 12 issues in mind. Right here, with this chapter, that number has doubled; handing in issue 24 to the printer was equal parts exciting and exhausting. That’s a big deal to me! I, who once had trouble finishing 24 panels, have expanded the world of COPRA page by page.
Shoot, some would say a solo venture like this is not all that common.
Thanks to all the readers and subscribers and fans who came to see me at all the shows. I will never tire of letting you know how much I appreciate your enthusiasm.
Big thanks to all the stores that carry Copra, too! And to the biggest store of them all, Bergen Street Comics — soon to close their doors while continuing to be a comics publisher. They were there from the beginning of my self-publishing venture, friendly and forward thinking. I was flattered to have them in my corner, and I’m proud that they still are.
Oh, wait — COPRA is now in spanish! This has been a dream of mine so I’m quite excited to announce that Inefable Tebeos has released a translated compendium of the first 3 Copra issues as Copra: Compendio Uno.
It’s already been favorably reviewed by the Cabezas Cortadas blog. There is no better excuse to practice my spanish reading.
But enough dilly-dallying. Gotta get back to work. Thanks again for the good times. And if you haven’t already: COPRA #24. Jump on board now.
