April 24th, 2006: So What's The Plan, Stan?
Somebody somewhere must be paying attention because I received six e-mails this weekend, asking me about the future of PIRATE COVE. As of now, this is it:
There will be two more episodes after JURASSIC SHARK:
Episode XXVII: The Man(iac) Who Came To Dinner
Episode XXVIII: 'Till Death Do Us Part
And then Joe & Co. will be taking a bit of a break. Please bear in mind that key word: BREAK. PIRATE COVE is NOT going away for good! After a few weeks of breather room, I'll get around to posting the rest of the "Before The Cove" books, maybe re-organize the website, update some links, re-scan the early strips so they fit on the screen better... basically, I need time to do all the stuff I've wanted to do for years now but couldn't find the time.
PIRATE COVE will still be keeping its pokers in the fire by showing up at A.P.E. and the San Diego Comic Con. Then, sometime early next year, I hope to have some news on published PIRATE COVE compilations and NEW STORIES. This is all too much fun to give up permanent-like!
And, of course, I will continue to update The Captain's Table with happy news as it becomes available. And speaking of happy news, here's some: barring any industrial accidents, PIRATE COVE will once again be ensconded in the Small Press Section of the San Diego Comic Con this year! We'll have the usual array of magnets, giveaway sampler comics, and - wait for it - a brand new full-length PIRATE COVE comic book! What about? I'll tell you when I figure it out. Until then, stay tuned! This ride ain't over yet!
