    The Black Coat is America's first superspy! Set in New York City in the days before the Revolutionary War, The Black Coat fights against the British and forces of the occult to protect the burgeoning nation. It's action packed fun that Chuck Dixon calls " kind of comics!"

“…or give me comics?” Yes! They are on the way!
Posted in by ben at 9:41 pm | 4 Comments »

We’ll have a more official announcement soon but I thought it was time to put something up on the homepage about it and let everyone know: Yes, the rest of the second series is on it’s way! 
Unfortunately, we ran into some scheduling problems this past Spring that set us back a bit, eventually requiring us to cancel our solicitations for issues 2-4. It’s not what we wanted, but it had to be done. We’re sorry for any trouble and confusion it may have caused, but we’re regrouping and will indeed be publishing the remainder of the series. At the moment, we’re looking at resoliciting early next year so that we can have books on the shelf by around April or May.
We know that’s a long time to wait between issues, but the good news is that there are lots of other BC things going on next year too. So even though 2007 turned out to be a lean year for BC fans, 2008 should be a busy one for the Black Coat! 
As I mentioned, we’ll have a more official update with lots of info (and pictures :) ) in the coming weeks so be sure to stop back soon!  
Thanks for sticking with us, and please, please, please if you have any questions, drop us a line – we’ll be happy to help however we can.

Thanks for the update (and honesty) shame you didn’t hold off with #1 till all were ready, but at least we know we’ll get to read them next year.

Loved The Call to Arms mini, so will hang on till ’08!

Thanks for sticking with us, Colin.
We woulldn’t have released the first issue of OGMD in May if we weren’t reasonably sure we were going to get the rest of them out. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned. All I can say is ‘Thanks for giving us a second chance!’ Support like yours does not go unappreciated!
And we’ve learned our lesson – we won’t be soliciting any more books until they are completed! :)
