Titanium Rain Delayed due to Chinese Objection to Content:
For those of you who may not know, Titanium Rain follows a squadron of American fighter pilots and their roll during a civil war in China. The Americans (and other countries) have sided with the Sino Union against an ultra nationalist faction known as the Jades. Set in an alternate 2032, Titanium Rain has been compared to Ghost in the Shell: SAC, the new Battle Star Galactica, and Generation Kill. You can find out more on the official website at TitaniumRain.net
Well, I have some bitter-sweet news for fans of Titanium Rain. The release of Vol. 1 Hard Cover has sadly been pushed back. The cause – well, in short, China doesn’t like our book. Seriously. It was sent to three different printers in mainland China and all of them refused to print it due to content. We’re pretty sure it has something to do with the news flashes in Ch.4 and the views on ultra-nationalism. But, our publisher found a printer in Hong Kong and I will have a release schedule for you very soon.
Keep a look out for the official press release coming soon.
And don’t forget to preorder the book through Amazon.com at just a little over $13.
In Other News:
The Pretty in Pink Fundraiser was a success! Myself and the Comic Geek Speak Super Show Convention crew hosted a fundraiser for Hero’s Initiative. A charity that I feel very strongly about. The deal was, if we raised $500 by convention time in March, I would go to the convention in a pretty pink dress. For those of you who know me, you know that I DON’T do pink. But, it’s for a good cause, so I can suck it up. Well, the fundraiser was a success and we raised more money than the projected goal. So into the pink dress I go (it is a lovely dress) and thanks to everybody who helped donate.
That’s all the news for now.
