The Complete AllSpark Almanac - 8 Page Preview! (Plus a Silly Little Contest)
Howdy! After a few weeks delay at the ports, The Complete AllSpark Almanac is just about to hit shelves, due out from Diamond outlets (like your local comicbook store) this Wednesday and a week or two after that from Amazon.com. It's time for our preview, but this left me with a conundrum. Do I showcase pages that people who have V1 and 2 (plus our fanclub material) have already seen? That seems pointless. Do I instead pull out the brand new or completely revised pages created for this book? That's problematic, because there are only about a dozen pages that fit the above characterization.
Then it hit me... there are numerous pages that aren't completely new but are a BIT new. New art, new context, new photos, integrated in with the existing material So, why not showcase them?
Then I thought, why not make it a game? The first person who replies in the comments who can correctly identify every difference will get a sketch card of the (pre-existing) character of their choice by Bill Forster. 8 pages, (at least) 8 differences. Go for it!
