I can't see in your list Book Palace's forthcoming "Heros the Spartan" book that they reckon will be ready by the end of the year. I really hope there isn't a problem with this project as I've been waiting years for Bellamy's brilliant Heros artwork to surface..

Stan,

Don't read anything into its non-appearance. I was hoping to get a more accurate release date from Geoff but forgot to ask him before posting the list.

I'll stick in a place holder and update it as soon as I hear something.
