Josh Howard expresses his frustration with the lateness of his two Viper books, Lost Book of Eve and Dead @ 17, adding that they’ll both end this fall but return sometime next year:
So, in order to fix the problem, which has begun to adversely affect my sales, Lost Books of Eve will be ending with issue 4, and Dead @ 17 will wrap up with issue 7 this fall. Don’t worry, though…I won’t leave you hanging. The current story arcs for both books will be wrapped up in satisfactory ways. This is what I have to do in order to re-start and get things back on track. I’m going to take a much needed break, but I think it’s safe to say you can expect both books to return sometime next year in some form or another. In the meantime, please enjoy the rest of the series. There are still some really big things in store…and if you’ve read the current issue of Dead, you know I’m not kidding.
In addition to these two books, Howard’s other recent projects include Sasquatch, which came out in April, and the Minx book Clubbing, which comes out next month.
