I have one of the originals of this's a pretty cool story with some good illustrations in the same style as the Gold Key comics line. A fitting companion piece! I do notice that the cover is different, and there are now to be 176 pages instead of the original's 144. Maybe there is to be scads of bonus material! Already pre-ordered my copy of the new one, although I just realized that I didn't click through from this blog site to order. Stuart--does it help if I do that? If so, I'll cancel my original order with Amazon straightaway, and then click through this site to re-order! It was, after all, here that I heard about it first. Always want to be of help. ~Tracy

Hi Tracy, yes, the Amazon links do contribute to the main site by helping towards the ongoing hosting and domain costs. Of course that's optional, though the support is much appreciated when people do use the links.

Right, so I couldn't cancel because I had other items in the order that had already begun the shipping process, and I would lose my "free shipping" to just cancel this one item. But, rest assured, any new DS media of any type (or figurines, or whatever) I will order through here going forward. Thanks Stuart--for keeping us so well informed, and all your tireless efforts! I know you have a busy job and a life aside from your labours of love!

Guys--pre-order the story digest! It's way cool.
