Double Barrel Issue No. 10 Sneak Peek

We can't believe we're already at Issue 10 -- so much so that we forgot to post this sneak preview back when the issue came out in MAY! But if you still haven't downloaded it, or if you did but you're really into reading sneak previews of stuff you've already read, then have we got a treat for you!

First, however, we want to let you know that we, the Cannon Bros., will be signing the HARD COPIES of Crater XV and Heck at Mead Hall Games & Comics in Minneapolis. The date for the signing is currently set at Saturday, July 13, from 1-3pm, but that date is subject to change due to some shipping woes we've been having, so keep watching this space for a firm announcement (or better yet, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for the latest news). Okay, on to the show:

The issue starts off with some typical office shenanigans, thanks to an albeit belated celebration of April Fool's Day:

Zander's Heck follows both Amy and Heck as they find what they're looking for—or do they?

Kevin's Crater XV is very revealing this month, showing off the rocket that Bendrix has built to fly the lost CASA astronauts to the moon, as well as dipping deep into Shanks' and Pravda's past, explaining how their friendship was ripped apart by RCAN at a very young age.

And prepare to dive deeper into Tim Sievert's D&D-inspired universe with Part Two of THE CLANDESTINAUTS:

You wanted more flashbacks, eh? Then dip back in time with PENNY FROM THE FRONT and discover how a plucky teenager from Halifax became a grizzled WWI reporter in the muddy trenches of the Canadian front line.

Jin is as adorable as ever in this month's TALES OF JIN:

Finally, for all of you budding designers out there, Kevin uses the latest HOW TO section to describe some basic design principles that he wished someone had taught him right out of college, including "RGB vs CMYK", "bitmap vs vector", color theory, and a lot more!

And don't forget to pre-order your copies of CRATER XV and HECK! You can order just the books themselves OR a jam-packed special edition, packed with a handful of extra goodies for only ten bucks more!

Here's a look at just a few of the goodies you'll receive with an order of the special edition books. Both Crater XV and Heck have their own signed & numbered bookplates (each bookplate is also individually winked at by its respective author) as well as fun-for-minutes 2-D cut-out action figures!

Thanks everyone!
