late layout changes to steps volume 2


the nice thing about printing these up myself is that i can make changes late in the game

when i printed up a few copies of steps volume 2, for instance, i was unsatisfied with the size of the images in the book (in a way that i wasn’t with volume 1)

the comics felt too small. they had no oomph. no impact at that size

so i decided to go with a 2 x 2 frame instead of fully vertical

with this change in the layout the images are quite a bit bigger. i didnt realize how important having those panels be as large as possible is – especially since the panel don’t change much

you can still preorder volume 2 in the store. or save some money with a steps 2 pack if you haven’t yet picked up volume 1

my plan is to start printing these no later than april 16

steps volume 2 cover

ok i finally decided what the cover will be for volume 2 of the steps zine

here it is, keeping with the tradition established by volume 1 of using a panel from one of the interior strips

the art file for the book is all set up, now i’ve just got to get them printed up

you can preorder now or if you didn’t yet pick up volume 1, you can preorder the steps 2 pack

printing zines

printed up some zines for a local zine fest this past weekend

just using my desktop printer

for some reason it doesnt like scooping up cardstock in to the feeder on its own so i have to feed the cardstock in sheet by sheet

each book took about a half hour to print

then i fold them staple them and lay bricks down on the books to flatten them out
