JMS Interview about ASM and Supreme Power

Thanks for the link Lyta, a great read. Glad to see JMS so happy. He is like a magnet, he ends up where he gets creative freedom and he makes it work. :D

Since JMS replied to my post on RASTB5M, I might as well reply to my own post here with his reply:

I've previously mentioned my new book from Marvel, called Supreme Power. I just got a note from Marvel mentioning that the cutoff for orders is going to be this Thursday, July 17th (also my birthday). I genuinely think that Surpeme Power may be one of the best things I've done in the comics field, maybe the best to date, and I just want to put out the word to any Babylon 5 folks out there who don't normally read comics, and encourage them to check this one out. This is a great book for people who don't generally go for comics, a strong character story from end to end.

Anyway, once the orders for issue #1 are filled by the 17th, they won't be taking any additional orders, and Marvel doesn't do reprints anymore. If you miss issue 1, you'll have to wait for the trade, which could take six months or more. So I wanted to let everyone know that this is your last chance, 'cause this is almost certainly going to sell out and be impossible to find afterward.

As I've noted here before, I don't usually go to this length to promote something I'm doing -- I've really not spoken a lot about the Jeremiah series for Showtime, or the B5 quote book, or other projects -- but I'm making an exception for this one because I truly believe this is something extraordinary, in large measure thanks to the amazing artwork by Gary Frank, who also penciled Midnight Nation.

And for a peek at issue 2:



So: long story made short, July 17th is the cutoff date for orders at comic shops. Just so's nobody can say later they didn't have fair warning on what Marvel thinks may end up being the book of the year for them.
