Number Zero In Pictures!

We launched the week with the exciting news that Captain Satellite: Number Zero had been published for a world that didn't even know it wanted it. Would you like to see the actual contents of the box? Of course you would.


If you'd like your own copy, you can visit the link above, or use this handy button!

Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.


But wait! There's more!



Captain Satellite: Number Zero by ~celamowari on deviantART

Yes friends, that is your humble author with his first copy of Captain Satellite: Number Zero. I wanted to promote this project over on dA, and a little photography seemed the best course of action.

For those of you who read this blog on the blog site itself, there's also a handy sidebar link if you feel suddenly compelled to order even more copies. Hey, it could happen!

Oh, and this probably didn't seem like it meant anything at the time, but remember the entry "Welcome to Major City"? Yeah, that poster is the background image on the front cover. I noticed last night that the image I uploaded somehow did not link to the full-size version, and I had missed it. Well, this has been fixed, and now you can download the full 1440 x 900 version!

A word or two about that poster now that the project is public. Kabuki Katze and I wanted to give Major City a distinctive skyline, so we both contributed ideas to this end. I suggested the Trylon and Perisphere, and Kabuki incorporated a very Space Needle-like building. There's also a tower in the middle meant to be the fabled Mando Building, which is based rather directly on the skyscraper which inspired mine. Can any longtime comics nerds guess my line of reasoning here?

Captain Satellite: Number Zero has been a rewarding project for a number of reasons. I expect that to continue as the weeks progress, even though Lulu rather thoughtfully went down for maintenance not long after I started promoting it. The best part? I'm already working on a follow-up or two. But you will learn more about those when they come to pass. For now, enjoy what we have!
