Hopeless Inheritance

The evolution of a book cover….

and so it begins
drawing complete
with colour!

Inheritance is the second half of The Gathering in the Sloth Comics editions of Hopeless, Maine. In the original Archaia editions these were two separate books, and Outland, our American publishers is also doing them separately. These will be large, hardcover editions and so new covers were in order!

Archaia dumped us after two books (boo, hiss…..) but that’s ok because Sloth have been awesome to work with and Outland are shaping up well.

Copies will be available from places that sell books, but there is also a kickstarter in the offing…

Inheritance covers

First and foremost, we are massively excited to share with you the new cover art for Hopeless Maine Inheritance.

This will be the cover for the new Outland edition of this book. This may be a tad confusing, so, explanations….

When we started doing Hopeless Maine graphic novels, we were published by Archaia and two volumes came out with them – Personal Demons, and Inheritance. The covers for those editions look like this…

When we were re-published by Sloth, we and the publisher took the decision to put those two initial volumes out as a single title – The Gathering – to make it easier to crack on and get the rest of the series moving. So, if you have a book that looks like the cover below, you’ve already got Inheritance and Personal Demons. And if you are the kind of completest who needs all the versions, we’re really sorry, we did not mean to do this to you.
