Hey RXCLP fans, we hope you’ve been enjoying the reviews we’ve been posting, and we hope they are building your confidence regarding our work so that you’ll help us out.
This blog entry will be home to any frequently asked questions we receive between now and the book’s launch. We will update this entry and repost the link to it on our Facebook page from time to time. Enjoy!
Why was I banned from the project Facebook Page or blog?
Chun-Li, if you would…
A physical release?
Some people who have been watching the project have asked us if we plan to produce a printed version of our book. Yes we do, but only around four copies: one for CAPCOM USA, CAPCOM JAPAN, UDON Entertainment, and the producers of Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist. How we are going to produce these copies at a reasonable cost? We’re still figuring that out, but we will find a way. For the public, it’s best to keep the work digital as this makes it much easier for our book to be shared all over the planet than a bunch of heavy printed books sitting collecting dust on people’s shelves would.
Don’t you want to make any money?
If this project somehow leads to me being paid for my efforts, fine. But that’s not why I started this project. I started this project because I wanted this book to exist. My life felt incomplete without it. What I currently hope for is a positive reaction to this book which down the road results in CAPCOM green-lighting a two hour Street Fighter animated movie based on the Ryu/Chun-Li concept that is as much canon as Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie is. And/Or, I hope that the Ryu/Chun-Li concept becomes the final season of the Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist series. A fan boy can dream, can’t he? Also, I now have two years experience producing a comic I can put on my resume. Not too shabby. I wonder where that will take me.
When our book launches, it will include the above page with links (another advantage of a digital release). If the world’s response is positive and the positive comments are plentiful, I will gather them up and try to get CAPCOM to take an interest in Ryu/Chun-Li. If not, the book still exists, and I can read it anytime I want, and so can the world. That’s still a lot of win.
Why do artists who donate artwork need to keep the artwork confidential until the book launches?
Well, besides the obvious benefit of keeping the book fresh for the public upon release, the plan is that all the artists will be free to post their work on February 14th, 2015, Valentine’s Day! That means a flood of Ryu/Chun-Li art being released in different places on the internet all at once (or around the same time at least) in the month of love for people to react to. This is an excellent way to promote the book and to get the idea of Ryu/Chun-Li into the public consciousness. “Gosh there is a lot of Ryu/Chun-Li art all of a sudden!” 😉 I am extremely grateful for the patience of our donating artists. They bring the awesome that allows this plan to work.
Why donate to this book?
If you buy a book, you get a book, end of story. You can do nothing to make it better. However, if you donate to our book, you still get the book, AND your donation (money, a piece of art or a mini-comic you made yourself, or a piece of art or a mini-comic you commissioned exclusively for our book) creates a better reading experience for you and everyone else who reads the book. Plus, there is a part of you in the book as well which will help convince CAPCOM there is money in them thar Ryu/Chun-Li hills!
Will there be a sequel to our book?
If the fans love and support this book we’ve created, and CAPCOM decides to pass on Ryu/Chun-Li, we’ll head to Kickstarter for a sequel and let the fans decide if they want more.
How many artists have actually donated artwork and/or mini-comics to this project?
Oh, that’s easy! Just go here.
