The good news is that the response has been even better than our most optimistic projections, although as a team we have all been pretty cautious in our expectations. Launching a new publication is fraught with difficulty and even keeping our origination costs as low as possible, the financial gamble involved is still considerable. So, caution has been our watchword.
However, I am pleased to say that issue 1 has been selling very well and recent publicity on Leif Peng's excellent Today's Inspiration blog has garnered a lot of response as well as a distribution deal for the US and Canada with Bud Plant.
As a final flourish the Gallery section presents two truly stunning Giorgio De Gaspari original covers from the early years of War Picture Library.
