What's This All About?
People have been asking me for updates wherever I go so I've decided to create one centralized place that I can post information directly related to the book's status.
Whether you're following this site from another post or just happened to stumble upon it, welcome.
Ever since Glenn and I wrapped up the 35 part column we felt like we could have done so much more. There were more creators to talk to, more information to discuss and of course get everyone on board and on the same page to make a definitive version of the behind the scenes goings on of one of the most controversial and popular comic stories of all time: the Spider-Man Clone Saga.
What you all really want to know about is what's going on though, right? Well now I have something to say. I've finally finished with the first edit of the book. Over the past 3 years I have been contacting all the creators and editors who worked on the Clone Saga and having them tell their side of the story, their anecdotes and their feelings. That was the fun part. The hard part was taking all of that new information (and there is A LOT of new information) and integrating it with the existing material and making it flow properly.
A few minutes ago I sent in the first pass to Glenn, my partner in crime. It's far from perfect and Glenn's watchful eye will hopefully be able to trim down the current 243 pages but I'm happy with it. I'm happy that there is now a light at the end of the tunnel and we're one major step closer in getting this book completed and in your hands.
Be sure to check out this site for your up to the minute information on our journey to get The Life of Reilly in the hands of the fans.
It won't be long now.
