      Sadly, most of the other reports I've seen indicate that Volume 2 will by out in the fall of *next* year. Sigh...

      However, JMS posted this evening that Volume One has won the Diamond Gem award for graphic novel.

      http://www.diamondcomics.com/Home/1/1/3/597/105704

      The Gem Awards are selected in a three-step process that is based on quality, creativity, and their overall sales impact. Nominees were selected by a panel of Diamond industry professionals from all products shipped in 2010 and then voted on by the most critical segment that serves the comic book-buying public ù comic book specialty retailers across the United States and abroad.

          I was just thinking about how like, nothing JMS exciting has happened in a long time. I guess there's Captain Power DVDs, but there's only so much excitement I can have over stuff he wrote 25 years ago being rereleased.

              A fan found this on Amazon:
              This title will be released on November 6, 2012.
              And posted on JMS' Facebook page to ask if it was official and JMS just posted:

              I could wish it were sooner but it's nice to know.

                    S: EO is way ahead of Batman: Earth One. The first of those is only due out in July. And they were announced at the same time.

                      Yeah. But for the general comics fan, the gap between releases for Supes Earth One is massive. For those of us who follow JMS, it's understandable since there's a lot on his plate and the communication with the fans is helpful.

                      But I thought a lot more titles would have been out. So far, the Earth One imprint makes Image Comics appear timely with their releases.

                        I don't get the feeling that it takes JMS to write these books. But finding an artist to draw an entire graphic novel's worth of material is another story.

                          Looking back a bit, JMS posted that he'd turned in the final pages of script back on August 21st or 22nd and at that time he thought it might be released this spring. So it may be that they wanted Batman to come out first and maybe that they wanted Superman to catch the holiday shopping season.

                          One of the few downsides of interacting with creators online is knowing when they've finished something but still having to wait for whatever distribution is involved. See above for demands for instant gratification right NOW!

                              No, because JMS didn't finish it until it was ready to be drawn (though I thought at one point that he had). Or at least if there was a year + wait after he'd finished writing it, I don't recall.
