I've given up, I've been waiting for this book for over 5 years it seems and I'm done. If this book ever comes out I'm thinking I won't even buy it now. I'll just get it from the library. It's somewhat of a joke around Christmas time at our house seeing that I've been putting it on my list for 2 or 3 years and then have to cross it off and replace it with fruitcake or socks. It was a great idea and good luck if it ever happens. P.S. War and Peace was written in a shorter amount of time..

Honestly what is the point of your post? The book has so much ground to cover that I'm sure that they want to do a proper job the first go around. Do you honestly think that they will read your post and say to themselves, "gee we better get this out now because you might go to the library instead of buying a copy" Please! :screwy:

I know how you feel as I've been waiting years for this book. I'm assuming that the book is taking so long because many of the contributers are volunteering their time and it is tough to snap the whip and rush free labour.

 

Even if the book takes another 10 years I will happily pony up for a copy as it is a subject that interests me greatly. Keep the faith best2u, I believe this book is being published for all the right reasons and the delays are not personal.

What I'd like to see at some point is a GCD type database of scans of pedigree books. It be cool to try and put together full runs of a title as a community effort. I know well probably never see many books but it would be pretty cool none the less.

 

Actually, we're building a database for this right now. We've cobbled together several thousand scans of pedigree books from various sources, and once the book is finished, go live with the archive on comicpedigrees.com. From that point, users will be able to sign in and upload any scans of pedigrees to the database. There are many, many little details to be ironed out, but that is the jist of it.

 

Eventually the original lists may be up there to serve as a checklist, so there is a goal to shoot for. In essence we'll be re-assembling each collection!

 

And this is just a part of the plans we have for the website in the future. Once the book is out, the website will pick up from there and move forward with live data for the pedigree collections.

 

 

now this reads like an excellent idea.

 

 

tell you what, just drop the book altogether and make the site pay-only. like $10 a year or something. i would sign up tomorrow

Will it be out before the world ends in 2012?

Are you kidding? The publication of the book will be one of the signs of the apocalypse!

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
