Van, what is the charity being supported.
That's George's call. I spoke with him briefly about it a while back, but didn't get a definitive answer. He used to give to a burned children's fund, and last year he was raising money for ACTOR (which has changed its name now, and which provides monetary assistance to older/retired comics professionals.)
My main goal has been to get the book finished and make it available. As soon as I find out from him which charity it'll be supporting, I'll post it here. I've never had any doubt it would be a worthy cause, so I haven't worried about it all that much.
I've never heard of this Lulu site. Is it reliable to buy from ? I'd like to get the book if the shipping to UK is not too much, since I don't know if it will eventually become available to Amazon UK or not.

Lulu are our printers. They are very reliable and very good. I have never had any problems with shipments from them.
The book will be available from Amazon and other bookstores, and will be solicited through Diamond, etc-- but that won't be for weeks if not months. We still have a lot of procedural stuff to deal with on that.
I made the announcement here at the earliest possible moment, so that true Avengers fans could get it before anyone else even learns that it exists!

The local comics shop here bought half a dozen copies from me today, and half of them were snapped up before I got out the door. Sales are looking very good, so far-- and we're still waiting on the distribution via the normal book route to kick in (it'll be a few days/weeks).
I'll pass on the word when it hits Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the like.
