Dark Horse comics is going to be releasing a nearly 500 page B/W collection of Casper the Ghost stories in June. I would imagine if Dark Horse thinks there is an audience for Casper stories in such a format, that Gemstone should be able to publish a similar type of title with Duck or Mouse stories.
I have a question for Gary. At first you compared a possible B/W Gemstone title to "Shonen Jump". Later you seemed to compare it more to a Showcase/Essentials type title. I think there are two big differences to the two. One, Shonen Jump comes out on a regular basis like a periodical. Showcase/Essentials do not come out on a monthly or regular basis. Two, Shonen Jump costs about 5 or 6 dollars each, whereas Showcase/Essentials cost more like between $15.00 and $20.00. I would be curious whether Shonen Jump or Showcase/Essentials is the type of B/W title Gemstone is considering? Of course from what has been written on the list, Gemstone may be reconsidering having such a B/W title at all.
Of course I can't post to the ML without mentioning a 3rd monthly prestige format title! :) Just wondering if anyone at Gemstone is talking or discussing this, or if it is not even on Gemstone's "radar" at this time? If anyone at Gemstone has *any* info about this, I and many other list members would love to hear about it.
