Ching. You have a sale here. The first one is awesome in print and I have high hopes for the second!

I've already had a sneak peek and can say that it's even better than issue 1!

Plus Paul has managed to creep me out with his art yet again - wait till you see the cover...

The Transmission series is of great interest. Is there any indication on whether the sales are increasing as it goes along? Was there initial interest that's died off? Do they sell well as pick up impulse buys via con sales? Have punters subscribed to an "update me when there's a new one" list? Is there such a list?
