Just for fun, what's your best guess as to how many Jim Shooter stories American Mythology will publish?

I think at this stage, they aren't planning for a lot. I think the sales on this first issue will be watched with great scrutiny and that they are playing it by ear so to speak.

They probably have the content for the first two or three issues of this title planned already don't they?

I'm hoping it's more than one Shooter story and it's something that can be developed into an ongoing or long term project. I'm pessimistic though. Lol

I haven't seen any teasers or news on anything forthcoming. We should know next week. I'm told that Previews is supposed to come out next week for March solicitations.

Did we miss any solicitation for writing by Paul Creddick? Smiley
I'm not optimistic for any long term projects, but as I said in my other post, I think they are looking to see if his name alone provides a profitable sales bump.
They may not be able to afford him, and that might be why we have this sampling of his work co-mingled as part of an anthology.

Yeah, he's pretty expensive. I wonder if he's doing this as a favor to someone. Just a thought. I'll be looking forward to next week's solicitations.

I know that Diamond has people in place to nurture retailer and try to get them to order more. They actually encourage publishers to restart with new #1's and to release variants. I think that JC coaxed Jim into doing this. I think it was done to help get this new publisher up to speed. I suspect that Jim knows they don't have enough money to turn the industry upside down. I think this is just a test to see what his name can do for them.

I've seen this stuff play out for a few decades. Everyone wants the sure bet, but those opportunities have dried up.
