With the fine effort of the first OSM graphic novel completed, the question comes up of getting the word out. Several weeks ago, I entered a local comic book/gaming shop and inquired if they had heard of the OSM book and if they were going to offer it. The shop owner gave me a dumbfounded look. I told him to check out the website, but more needs to be done.

In addition to grassroots efforts, it would be beneficial if those "higher up" could be contacted as well. While I understand that the OSM franchise has to show some success (e.g., graphic novel sales, good reviews, considerable fan interest) before other things (movies/cartoons, etc.) can occur, it may help speed up the process if some "bigwigs" in the entertainment industry can be introduced to the OSM concept and shown the graphic novel.

Who knows...perhaps some prominent person of influence remembers playing with the OSM all those many, many years ago...

First Impressions of Novel

I see this as a good first effort. It is solid material and I urge all fans of the OSM to obtain a copy, read it and present their opinions here.

I do not want to give away the plotline - other than what has already been discussed here, re: Mystron, etc.

I will say that the byplay at the end between Colossus Rex and Orbitron (about Orbitron's nudity) was quite amusing. As was the earlier bit about Rex's excuse for being late for the meeting.

But, let's not make C. Rex into a buffoon...

Further comments from my side may be coming; however, I do not want to prejudice readers with respect to their own comments. Rather, I'd prefer for now to facilitate discussion and enter the "fray" once it is started.

Got Book

I just received the graphic novel today. I'll need some time to read it carefully and "digest" it and then I'll comment on it here. I'd also like to hear from others when they've read the book - stop by and leave some comments.
