Here's something that showed up in my mailbox a couple of days ago. It's everyone's favorite book, Teddy and the Yeti! It's the fourth issue! Here at last.
This issue has been completed for a while, but there have been a few snafus that have kept it from seeing print until now. One of the biggest delays was caused by Hurricane Sandy - I had hoped to have the book on display at last month's small Pittsburgh Comics & Collectibles show, but the extreme weather caused the printer to lose power for more than a week and the backlog began after that. But the book is now in my hands and, in my biased opinion, I think it looks great. Above you can see both covers for the book, on the left with art by Pat Olliffe and Karin Rindevall and on the right with art by Ron Frenz.
Here's a shot of some interior pages with some fine artwork by Duane Redhead!
Since I was planning on having this book out for the show, I only printed out a handful and most of them have been sent out as creator copies. Now that I've gotten these back and have given them the once over, I'll put in a larger order that I can actually sell a few and list them in the website store. So if you've been waiting in desperation for Teddy and the Yeti #4, well...it's here. But you still gotta wait a little bit longer.
The backup story for this issue is "Big Red Rex" with art by Paul Tucker. It's a story that I've wanted to print for what seems like forever, and I'm happy to finally...FINALLY...get the chance!
In other very important news, this is the 500th post to the Teddy and the Yeti blog. I'm happy that this one actually deals with Teddy and the Yeti. Woo!
