They don’t know how many pages or the overall quality. That’s silly. You can still READ the whole book at ComicMix.com for FREE! You can see that the story is 150 pages long. The quality of the writing and the art are superb. Better than most comics (web or print). The only crap shoot is on the quality of the print run. The print run they did was very small, just one hundred copies. It was a test run. $25 is a very fair price for a hard cover, quality story in a highly collectible format.

Many of the GrimJack trades list for $24.99, which is what we sold the limited editions for.

With those I know exactly how many pages I am getting and the overall quality. They are pretty much holding the exclusivity over my head and asking me to shell out on a crapshoot of POD quality.
