[quote]Serialization is often a necessary evil in today’s marketplace, but obviously I’m not opposed to it. Oftentimes, I really like it. And, besides, most of the classics were originally serialized, from Watchmen to Dark Knight Returns and so on.
But I’m glad that the “final” form is the complete book. Ultimately, that’s really how it’s meant to be read. In terms of marketing the initial series’ release, I ended up reverting to my usual “performance art” mode and leaned into the whole “Spider-Man”-aspect of the Bounce character. For one thing, it was an easily digestible marketing hook and, as it turned out, worked quite well in launching the book.
But secondly, I was trying to prime the readers — those that pay attention to these things — for one experience and then, in the narrative itself, delivering another. Kind of a bait-and-switch, I’ll admit… but at least it’s not your typical reading experience. There’s no other superhero comic book out there like it right now.[/quote]
