Is there a release date yet on the next volume of Narbonic? I have succeded in my insidious plan of getting the whole household hooked, bwahaha.

And wouldn't it be marvelous to have the Trip to the Moon collected?
Hey, I can dream.

Wheee indeed!

I just joined the forum purely to ask that very question, teach me not to read 'em first. Yesterday's post brought the darlingest gerbil-inscribed package, one late night later I'm panting for the final installment. (Presume #6 will be the last, but I'd also jump at a collected Astonishing Excursions/Trip to the Moon.)

And, yes, the bonus story is still in progress. This will seem even more ridiculous when you see the bonus story, since it's all of four pages long.

It's harder to be short than long. As my picture book author friends say, "If you've only got 500 words to tell the story, they need to be 500 exactly-right words." (I could no more do a story in four pages, in any format, than I could fly to the moon.)

Any more updates? I'm kinda waiting on #6 as I presume it will be the last, and then I plan to buy the whole lot in an insane moment of buying frenzy!

I can ask my three year old "What do bad guys say?" and he'll respond with a "Hah Hah Ha!" - more of a bold villain laugh than the scheming villain Heh heh heh. We'll still working on the arms akimbo while he says it.

Wow. And it seems like just yesterday when you released Volume One.

Time flies.

I'm still working on #3...

Yeesh.

Even I cannot believe how epic the wait for Volume 6 has become. It's in the works. I think now we're just working on the intro and final cover design.

Glee!

I remember when I received Narbonic #5. I thought there was an unusually large number of blank pages in the back, so I gave them a closer look, and I found the comic written in invisible ink! Er, semi-invisible ink. Meaning the ink was invisible, but it changed the transparency of the paper so you could see ink from no ink.

Then I realized the comic matched the page of bonus story opposite it. *sigh*
