Right Ho, Jeeves #2 and more

HUNGRY HEARTS is the second issue in the RIGHT HO, JEEVES series, which tells of the travails of the inimitable Bertie Wooster, who is summoned from the comforts of #3A Berkley Mansions, London to Brinkley Manor by his imperious Aunt Dahlia. Love is in the air and Wodehousian shenanigans are afoot, as Wooster's well-meaning attempts to help out his friends sort out their romantic difficulties only leads to one disaster after another.

Adapted from the classic Wodehouse novel by comics legend Chuck Dixon and drawn by SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN illustrator Gary Kwapisz, RIGHT HO, JEEVES #2: HUNGRY HEARTS is issue #2 of 6 in the series.

On a related note, as you may already be aware, RIGHT HO, JEEVES #1: A Binge at Brinkley is now available in Kindle and in print. But that's not all. During the Alt★Hero campaign, we were asked to offer a discussion forum as a stretch reward, which we duly offered and was subsequently funded. The stretch reward was originally conceived as follows:

Commenting on the Alt★Hero site will be limited to campaign backers and site subscribers in order to reduce the amount of SJW vandalism. Site Heroes will receive a subscription to the website, the ability to create new topics, the ability to edit the wiki (subject to moderator approval and discipline), a series of special icons available only to them, and a dedicated forum. Please note that SJWs who use this Reward to infiltrate the site for the purposes of vandalism, politics, or social justice will be identified and stripped of both their backer and Site Hero status.

Last week, a special online meeting was held with the Site Heroes to introduce the new Alt★Hero site, which is now live. After a discussion in which a variety of ideas were kicked around, we collectively decided to make some changes to the original conception. First, no subscriptions to read the site will be necessary, at least for now. Second, all APPROVED (not registered) users can comment on the forums, although certain closed forums are accessible only by Alt★Hero Backers  and Artists, respectively. Approval will initially be limited to those two groups. Third, the wiki will utilize an Infogalactic frame, but is not yet operative and only Backers will have the ability to modify it. Fourth, we have established separate sections for discussing Books and Games, as well as separate subforums for discussing comics published by Marvel, DC, and the major independents. And fifth, we set up several volunteers as site moderators, who will police the forums and keep the commenting under control.

Anyone can register, but please read the site guidelines before commenting. Because we anticipate a number of younger readers, we will be much more strict on policing language and content there than I am here. Only Alt★Hero Backers and Artists will initially be approved for commenting, so if you are a backer, please email me with your backer number and new username in the subject after you register. Please note that you will know that you have been approved, have Backer status, and can access the Backer's Only subforum when your username turns green. Artist status is limited to industry professionals and the Arkhaven/Dark Legion team.

Once the Alt★Hero Backers who have registered are all approved, we'll move on to approving Voxiversity backers, Brainstorm members, and Will Caligan campaign backers for general commenting. Please be patient, as this process could take as long as a week since not everyone reads this blog every day.

Is there any way to buy Right Ho, Jeeves outside US? Also, is the artist of Ember War already announced?

Blogger VD March 05, 2018 5:54 AM  

Not yet. We're working on it. No, I'll leave that up to Jon and Richard.

" Only Alt★Hero Backers and Artists will initially be approved for commenting, so if you are a backer, please email me with your backer number and new username in the subject after you register."

Is the backer number the same as the Contribution Number we got in an email from FreeStartr? (In which case I have several, as do others who contributed more than once.)

Or is it something else I haven't figure out yet? Thx

Yes, that's correct. Just sending one of them will do, it merely serves to identify you.

That's what I hoped.

"please email me with your backer number and new username"

By "new username", are you requesting that we use one distinct from the nom de guerre we use here on VP?

No. Use whatever you want.

@Vox, the breadth of your interests and talents never ceases to amaze me. I've been Wodehouse fan for decades (even have a few early editions and one first edition) but would never have guessed you for one.

Account created with appropriate email account and email sent with backing info.

Blogger VD March 05, 2018 12:16 PM  

If you've emailed me both your backer number and your forum username, you've been approved as a Backer. If your name is green, you know you're good to post.

Blogger Killua March 05, 2018 1:17 PM  

Email sent. Congrats! Glad to see this project taking off.

Blogger James Dixon March 05, 2018 9:12 PM  

Good to go. Thanks, Vox.

Once this hits paperback, the Castalia store will have the enough new comics to get the buy 5 comics + 2 paperbacks shopping deal. I need the two Lawdog titles again.

I was planning on getting my print copies from Amazon, but this set up makes Castalia work as a first choice (My digital copies are just so much more convenient to get from Amazon)

For those on the fence, I used Aer.io for several of my Christmas gifts and they were a pleasure to use. Everything arrived on time and in good condition.
