Volume 3 is in length exactly halfway between vol. 1 and vol. 2. In other words, about 270 pages. But the pace is very fast; very similar to "Warlord."
It wraps up almost every plot thread. Almost! It's the "climactic chapter in the first Sentinels saga!"
There are a couple of "larger/longer-term" plot threads that remain unresolved, because 1) they will take another story or two to flesh out, rather than crowding in with what's already in vol. 3, and 2) they aren't the immediate problem for the team to deal with at this point.
Ideally these will be the equivalent of multiple "limited series" of comic books. In other words, three books, then a break... then maybe another 2-3 books, then a break... Sort of the way "Ultimates" or "Young Avengers" work.
I'm pulling together ideas for the next big arc now, but I have a couple of other projects to finish before I really start on it. But my thoughts are running toward one general idea-- not a rip-off, per se, but a general concept. One word: "Ultron!" ;D
Next up: Mars McCoy and the Chaos Horde! It's a novel based on Ron Fortier's (Terminator: The Burning Earth) retro-pulp-SF world, similar to Flash Gordon. (But with my own Warhammer 40,000 spin to it!) I'm in the outlining phase now. Should be available in a few months, with cover art by Mark Maddox (Captain Hazzard). www.whiterocketbooks.com
