Tales of the Tai-Pan Universe

We aren't dead yet!

It's been a while since we've updated, but we assure you the rumors of our demise have been at least slightly exaggerated. Last month we posted a tease about what is coming soon. Here's an even better sneak peek of something subscribers will be seeing in their mailboxes in a few weeks:

Omnibus One Is Still Available!


Tai-Pan: Omnibus One features the complete contents of issues #1 and #2, remastered, plus a few extras.

In addition to all of the stories, articles, and artwork from the first two issues, we've added a bit more source material, artwork from the Tai-Pan calendar project, some content from the first attempt at an issue #1, plus new incidental artwork. The text has been tidied up (fixing typos and such from the originals) and laid out in a beautiful new design.

The book is published as an over-sized trade paperback, featuring a new, full-color cover drawn by Chuck Melville. Order yours today!
