We're proud tobe bringing these books back into print and as well as providing Lea ahome for future books in the 'Texas Steampunk' series."
"I think Cyberosia's the next Big Thing in comics publishing. Whodoesn't want to be on that ride? Who wouldn't want their work at acompany that's obviously on its way up?" commented Lea on her decisionto bring her books to Cyberosia. "The deciding factor was somethinganyone doing graphic novels should consider: does the company I want tobe with have bookstore distribution? I have had a great deal of successin comics specialty shops, but when I kept hearing that my work fallssquarely into the fastest growing segment of bookstore graphic novelsales, I wanted to be there. I knew my books would be in good hands whenI was trying to think of a way to ask Scott if I could have film forabout ten percent of each book re-shot and corrected. But before I couldask, Scott asked me how I felt about digital. And better paper. Hereally twisted my arm. I'm excited about these new editions of CATHEDRALand CLOCKWORK because I feel like they'll finally do the artworkjustice."
