Ya Boi is having issues with printing out the interiors in Iron Sights 2. They keep getting moire patterns for some reason even though it's the same printer and Iron Sights 1 didn't have that issue. It'll probably be ready to go in a week or so
Is he using a different ink? Because those can have different weights. It also might be due to a different paper too, since those have different load capacities.

Still, kudos for him to tell his backers; I didn't back either, but then the idea and previews felt too much like an inside joke not for me.

I think it's no secret I'm not the biggest Doug/EWJ/BFB fan, but regardless of how I view his books and his sometimes dumb words I do hope that the guy gets good news. That shit is scary, my father is about to get open-heart surgery in the midst of this virus shit, and I worry everyday.

The man should stay alive longer to see his kids grow, and to see his creations thrive... So here's hoping he doesn't have anything to worry about.

Don’t worry. Of course some sped tagged EVS in the comments and now he’s in there causing a stir. Also, I remember seeing those EVS DMs a while back. They’re pretty old at this point but people pretty eagerly forgot them.

Attachments for EVS’ tweet aren’t working so here’s the archive.

This shit is so fucking played. Comic Industry crashing and burning and these speds act like before.

FFS Marvel, reign in your people and those making creative (...feel free to insert quotations marks around that word) decisions

Okay, I looked thru there. What's with the civilian bullshit. Last time I checked he's a bitch that lives in LA and wishes he worked in Hollywood. Twitter's not war, your not a warrior.

Zack isn't 100% sure, but according to this comment, the issue was resolution
Vm Re said:
that moire has to do with the size of the dot of the gray tones patterns and the printing resolution, you have to put the correct size of dot. for example if you make a file that looks correct in the computer but then resize it , then the dot pattern gets al moired when printed. I you change the size of the document you have to make all the dot patterns again. etc.
Also yeah, this is one of the reasons I like Zack, he keeps his backers very much in the loop on any issues that come up. Not many creators would give a play by play of whatever problems they're having.

As we've learned over the years, a lot of these guys have an unwarranted level of self-importance over making funny books

Agreed, I don't get the whole 'civilian' thing... he sounds like an absolute Looney Toon. (no offense @KingofNothing )
"I wrote a shite Punisher run during a shite 'War of Realms' event... I AM YOUR KING!" You cease being a civilian when you speak to him... I have no words.

The Brand campaign is officially over, time to see how Antonio did for his second bookView attachment 1203792
Big oofs. This a far cry from what they got on the first campaign. A drop of 83% in funding and 90% of their backers(granted that was over a year). If we want be generous with the time frame, it was roughly 71% and 83% respectively, so still not good. This is why you don't launch your sequel before people even get their hands on the first book. I also want to hear more about he was considering giving out the first book for free, digitally when people still don't have the damn thing. That's pure exceptionalism.

Yeah Brand 2 bombed pretty hard, I backed the first campaign twice but didn't touch this campaign. I've read the digital PDF that Antonio sent out and similar to Lonestar and Graveyard Shift I could only describe it as mediocre. Not terrible, not great just mediocre. Caanan White's art is superb and I can't really criticize the script, but one problem was that Antonio introduced far to many characters in the first issue. I was constantly having to go back to previous pages to remind myself who was who. He could have cut the number of characters in half and there still would have been too many.

I think there are multiple reasons this one bombed.
-The first Brand remains unfulfilled.
-The free PDF pissed off a lot of the digital backers (even though it was only to physical backers, so even if the digital backers didn't back, they wouldn't have received anything anyway.)
-There was very little promotion of Brand 2, I'm not sure I see Antonio anywhere else plugging his book.
-No stretch goals to encourage the campaign higher and create a sense of value for backers.
-Too many variant covers, none of which were especially good. Theres an EVS variant which hasn't even been shown (probably because he hasn't drawn it yet.)
-Too much competition. Iron Sights 2, The Expendables, Blade Devil, Unfrogettable Tales, Rekt Planet, Cash Grab and many others are still active or launched during Brands run.
-The price of the book went up from $15 to $25, although to be fair to Antonio he did increase the page count from 48 (Brand) to 60 in the sequel.
-All the infighting and drama within CG causing certain factions to form, although as far as I know Antonio keeps away from drama so perhaps this point could negligible.
