Captain Satellite: Number Zero


What was in the box? Why, my first copies of a little thing I decided to title Captain Satellite: Number Zero. Now that I've seen them, it's safe to officially announce this project to the world.

Captain Satellite: Number Zero is a 64 page black & white comic book size prose collection. I want to stress that this is not a comic book, despite the fact that it has comic book dimensions of 6.6 wide x 10.2 tall. Rather, this is a collection of text material coupled with illustrations by Kayleigh Lebak (better known to OWARI readers as Kabuki Katze).

Captain Satellite: Number Zero is obviously a packaging of material connected to the Captain Satellite universe. Though much of it may seem familiar to readers of this blog, everything has been revised and updated. Plus, there is some exclusive material available only in the book. The goal is to make this book the definitive resource for the "Owariverse", and to lay the groundwork for future appearances of these characters. That's both online AND (hopefully) in more books.

Captain Satellite: Number Zero is now available for order from Lulu at $9.95 for print edition and $3.95 for file download. I realize those prices are in no way cheap, but I assure you, I'm not going to get fabulously wealthy off this project. I'd appreciate any support you can offer for this endeavor. It's very exciting, and I'd like to get this book into the hands of as many people as possible.

A big thank you to everyone that has made Captain Satellite: Number Zero possible. Special thanks should be made to cover artist/illustrator/all-around swell gal K. Lebak, for her huge above-and-beyond the call of duty contributions in making this book look as excellent and "snazzylicious" as it does. Do you visit her blog or her gallery regularly? You should! You might even be able to read more about this book on them!

Below you will find the back cover, which is just as good as the front. Below that is a button that will allow you to add Captain Satellite: Number Zero directly to a Lulu shopping cart. This doesn't affect anything with your order; I've merely added it for your additional convenience.

Oh, and if you're still not convinced, why not check out the free lo-res preview on the book's page?
