You could order them online from TFAW (Things From Another World - Online Comic Store).

They have tentative release dates there:

Issue #1 - May 26
Issue #2 - June 30
Issue #3 - July 28

Those dates aren't locked but they give you a good idea of when they may be coming out. Or you could head into your local comic book store and order them there. :) Sometimes online distributors are more convenient.

My order for the first issue is locked! And TFAW is def a great site if you don't live near a comic store.

The script is approved, and we're offically seeing art production (and some really nice looking art at that!).  I don't know much about comics, so I'm not sure how long it will take to do the final inking, lettering and publishing, but the project is moving forward at a good pace, so there's a product in the pipeline.  Hooray!   :D

Okay, that works - many thanks, Has! Our comic book stores got devastated over the last couple of years; my two favorite places closed  :(, and the only real choice is to drive down to Berkeley. So it looks like TFAW is going to become another favorite site.

Depends on the popularity of the series, I'd imagine. Goodness knows, there are enough compilation volumes of Usagi Yojimbo to fill a shelf in my library. Plus The Sandman, plus a couple of other series and some stand-alones. I adore graphic novels, myself; my brother got me hooked on Usagi, and then I turned around and did it to the hubby. Now if CJ Cherryh and Jane Fancher had just managed to finish the Morgaine series, my cup would be full. *Sigh*

I just ordered mine of ebay today, so I'm hoping that it comes soon. So excited bOuNcY!

I have a question though, how does it begin? Because technically Charles and Anna's story begins with the "Alpha and Omega" novella and not with Cry Wolf.

I read Cry Wolf first. I could feel that something was missing and I had a very difficult time reading the rest of the book because I didn't really understand Charles and Anna's connection.  ??? When I read "Alpha and Omega" I immediatly re-read Cry Wolf because I knew I could then experience it the way I should have initially.

I'm worried that the volume is going to be incomplete if it's purely based on Cry Wolf. I rejoice in the process of reading comics and I want for me and those who haven't even read the books to see the story for all that it is.

Some of you have read the first issue, I presume. Without giving me a play by play, can you tell me where it starts in their story? :-[
