SUPER REAL NOTES: issue 6 preview 1

While we wait for the graphic novel to come out in January, those following in single issue format can pick up the first giant-sized part of the two part finale, issue number 6, which is available now (in print and digital from the website), and with the final part, issue 7, set to release in late December.

So, besides the first 8 pages which have been previewed on the website and around the web, I thought I'd share some art from key pages of the issue (that also don't give too much away). Here's the first, page 12...

A good side by side shot of our cast on what may be their final genetically enhanced reality show challenge!!

**Don't forget you can still pre-order the graphic novel via comic shops/Diamond# NOV090909, with a huge discount via, or directly via!

SUPER REAL NOTES: Comic Geek Speak interview, AICN previews, DCBS promo

A collection of Super Real GN/issue 6 news and notes:

FIRST) Just posted on Comic Geek Speak, their latest podcast episode, the Previews show (where they run through the current issue of Previews), the CGS crew were kind enough to have me on for a few minutes at the tail end of the show to talk about the rescheduled Super Real GN (and we also talked a bit about digital comics).

You can tune into the episode below

Or HERE at the CGS site.

The interview starts at the 1:30:00 mark of the episode and runs about 8 minutes.

SECOND)'s weekly "Shoot the Messenger" column the past two weeks has featured Super Real previews...

Last week they featured 8 pages from the new sixth issue, which you can see HERE

And this week they feature the full newly colored 6 page Jim Mahfood section from the graphic novel HERE

THIRD) The good folks of (Discount Comic Book Service) are offering the graphic novel through their site at a 40% discount (that's $11.39 instead of $18.99), and also including an original sketch plate, from myself, with each copy they sell!!!
If you use the service, or would like to check it out, you can check that offer out HERE

(This is similar to the offer I have on the book's site, where you also get a sketch plate, but with free shipping on the book's full price.)

Stay tuned for more!
