Greetings Gentlemen of LF! What happened? I go into the bunker for a few months and when I come out, the world is on fire - in every way. Geez. Well, we are under "shelter-in-place" in California, US. Very scary here in rural America where we have an awful healthcare system, very few hospital beds, and even fewer ventilators.
Nevertheless, i have some good news and a question.
Artist Matt Howarth and I made a comic book about the early days of cold fusion, and it looks like it's going to be published by Curtis Press Publisher of Science. Matt and the publisher have been working things out - it takes soooo long ---- but it looks like there will be 1000 copies of Discover Cold Fusion printed to sell at $4.95 US from their website, as well as limited distribution in shops.
A "Discover Cold Fusion" website is forming right now with links: https://www.discovercoldfusion.com/ No copies available yet though!
We just got statements from consultants Melvin Miles and Michael McKubre to add to the 32-page comic (graphic novel) and/or press release. They will also be added to the website.
We are having a Proof printed and will make some edits/check for typos. Should be coming to me in a few weeks.
QUERY I told the publisher I could sell 750 copies. I know that some people will buy multiple copies to give away.
My question to you is, do you think we can sell 1000 copies of a comic book on cold fusion priced at $4.95?
How many will LENR forum attendees purchase?
Please say yes, and, a lot.
And let me know your thoughts. We are living in dark times, but here is a ray of light to give some hope.
