Tales finally cracsk Newsarama!

Yes, there was a pellet review for #51 up, but it looks like this review thing is really starting to pick up! You can read the other Tales reviews up on the official website (I think they're linked), but here's the one that appeared on Newsarama today:

Here are the others in case you were curious...

Sure, not all of them are 100%, but the main thing is, they're being read, and being seen. I'm also pretty sure that a lot of these reviews are first-time turtle readers too. Big thanks to Dragon Turtle for pointing me to some of these!

Been catching up on some art duties for Cereal:Geek that needs finalising by the end of this week, should have some Killeroo news in the next couple of days too, so keep an eye out!

-->> ..actually , some of those are pretty fair.

Findin' critics are beyond reasonable some times and take EVERY LITTLE LAST FREEKIN' DETAIL out of perspective and proportion.

but some of these are balanced.

Why oh WHY can I not find Cereal:Geek anywhere? I'd love that thing.

I was wondering if Mirage would consider dropping the current story telling format, and have all the stories for a particular arc printed right after each other.

The current format can't be easy to follow for new readers, considering issue #52 is supposed to be part 3 in a four issue story arc (Part 1 was #21 and part 2 was issue #32, correct?).

It's a fair call to make, and something that I think has been noted in each of the reviews, but I have a feeling that the story's initial concept wasn't planned beyond each issue. I think that while the C.O.W.boys appear in those issues, the stories aren't necessarily connected chronologically the way #52 and #58 will be. I hear what you're saying, but it's out of my hands unfortunately. It could also come down to scheduling, whether or not said issue is ready in time. Ultimately, you might be better off asking Dan via email, Ryan over at his blog, Murph via email or Peter over at his blog, as they'll probably be able to give you better, more definitive answers. Each of the stories I've written for next year all connect up, but I've written them so that, while they continue on from each other, it's not a "To be continued" cliff hanger, which was Dan's initial mandate. I did have plans to pitch a two-parter, but retracted it after being told about the suggested format.

-->> Arguable point, i do enjoy the frontispieces and the ' story telling '.. if not just to see Dooney's work, but as a matter of tradition and holding that up from the original volume 1.

Formatting aside.. the book is called "TALES " after all.
