Beginning in October 2006, Wahoo Morris will be adopting a direct to trade paperback format.
With four self-published issues, and one re-print at IMAGE Comics, Wahoo Morris won a devoted following for the series' quirky character driven saga about an indie rock band trying to make it big. The title also achieved critical acclaim from retailers and the media alike. "I have been amazed by the response to Wahoo Morris," said Taillefer. "There seems to be quite an audience hungry for the kind of character driven stories I am telling."
"Saying Wahoo Morris is going direct to trade is a little premature, as first we have to collect the four previously printed singles issues," said Taillefer. "But beginning with further volumes, and there are two more in the immediate planning stages, they will feature all-new never before published story and art."
"Adopting a direct to trade format for Wahoo Morris is a logical one," said Taillefer. "As I have been serializing Wahoo Morris as a web comic at Modern Tales dot.com for the past two years, it really was a backwards step to then serialize the story again in singles format. All of the new and never published in print story and art will from now on be going directly to trade paperback collections and skipping past the single comic stage."
To facilitate new readers coming on board,and to make the decision to order even easier, the first chapter of Wahoo Morris Book One (oroiginally presented as issue #1 of Wahoo Morris) is available as a free PDF downloadon the Internet at 'www.wahoomorris.com'.
Craig A. Taillefer is a comic book veteran, best known for his long time work on Elfquest, and was short-listed for the Russ Manning New Talent Award in 1999 (disqualified on a technicality - he's a veteran and not a new talent - but deserving none the less!)
