Oh, all right, I'll pin a useful toot:
Some amount of this account will refer to my comic, The Dementia of Magic, at https://dementiaofmagic.net. Others may refer to nothing really at all.
Hm... yes, yes. I think these versions of the books should do nicely. Much less overly dark, now that I've done some color correction on some of the more shaded parts.
I'll give them one more look-through just to make sure I'm not missing anything really bad, but I might be ready to get them up for sale in due time.
One of the more impressive things about Worms: Armageddon, the 22-year-old version of Worms that many still hold up as the peak of the series, is that it still gets updates, not just to force it to run on modern OSes, but also for QoL stuff and new features regardless. Plus, given how it's developed, if you've even got an old 1.0 WA CD sitting around, you should be able to get it upgraded to 3.8.
Or rather, my copy WOULD be upgradeable if my external CD/DVD drive could read it right. Arrg.
"As usual today on Jeopardy, we've come across a substantial amount of money through means our lawyers have assured us we are not required to disclose, and we desperately need to dispose of it through a trivia game show for reasons we are also not required to disclose. And this round's categories are..."
There we go. The second edition PDF of Chapter Three is now up. It's *mostly* US Letter sized, but I took a lot more liberty in changing page sizes for bigger comics, given it's digital and all. Here's a link!
(this is a ~100MB download, by the by; be forewarned)
I've also got a physical copy of Chapter Three en route just to see how it looks. Hopefully that works out.
The books arrived yesterday. Looks like I don't need the super-expensive premium color processing (it looks like it was designed for photo books, as it gives everything a glossy sheen), and Lulu's stuff is of otherwise comparable quality to KDP. So that's good news, at least.
Though I might need to do some minor re-layouts for the new margins. More to come.
Test copies of the US Letter version of Chapter Two of the DoM are en route. Hopefully Lulu's not-super-premium color processing is good enough, because holy cow the price shoots up a LOT the moment you turn on the premium option.
Of course, if not-premium's good enough but premium's noticeably and appreciably *better*, maybe I'll keep a few copies of that around just to be fancy schmansy.
I just started poking around with making a US Letter version of Chapter Three of the DoM. That one might take a bit more work than Chapter Two. Turns out that, since I was going digital-first for all the sketches and, more importantly, page-size full-bleed images, the originals are much tighter to those original 8"x10½" sizes, so I'll need to manually edit most of them to look right.
So that'll be a project.
