This month, we continue to take a look at the production of the
anticipated comic book, "Underground to Nowhere". Right now, there are
two big pieces of information to share with you.
The first bit of news is the announcement of a possible agreement with
'Umi Fashions' to advertise with us, which could be reached as early as
sometime this month. The current proposal is for an undisclosed amount
of money. The deal offered to 'Umi Fashions' would allow them to
advertise in full, four color, on the Front Back Page, in issue '1-A' of
"U2N". But, if Umi were to agree to advertise in all three issues of
"Underground to Nowhere", their cost would be cut by one third. In
addition, Umi would also obtain a full year of advertising space here on
"The World of Myth" web site. Owner and President of 'Umi Fashions',
Dawn Gaines, seemed pleased with the current proposal and would possibly
be ready to review a first draft contract by the middle of this month.
The next important piece of information we have for you is that on April
11th, 'Brenner Printing' was officially named the company that would be
publishing the comic, "Underground to Nowhere". The news came after a
phone conference with President and Chairman of the company, David
Montoya, wherein it was stated that a Brenner representative would
contact Montoya, offering him a new deal which would beat the
competitor's (Lulu Press) price offer by fifty per cent (50%). Of
course, there were a few clauses placed in the contract that the
representative said were to ensure 'Brenner' its just opportunities. One
clause noted that all 'Three' issues of the comic book would be printed
through 'Brenner Printing', while another stated that when the time came
to print issue
'1-A', all three books would have to be finished and ready for printing.
This ensures that the entire project will be completed and would not end
up as a possible 'dead end project'.
And finally, even though the cover of "U2N" will be in full color, due to
cost considerations, the comic book itself will end up being printed in
black and white. But, the producers of the "Underground to Nowhere" do
not feel that the lack of color will effect the quality or overall sales
of the comic trilogy.
So, that's it for this month's FYI. Come back next time as we continue
to follow the production and watch as events unfold for the debut of
"Underground to Nowhere".
