I'm glad you brought this up, Derek. (filling balloon with tepid urine...) :)
Since this project was really founded on the idea that it serve as an excuse to get our own personal projects done, all printing rights remain with the artists. I'm hoping that the book receive first printing rights, but beyond that, you guys can do whatever you want with your stories. In fact, I was thinking it would be a great idea for everyone to be able to sell their individual pieces through bitpass to their web-based readership. My feeling is that this would only help garner interest in the book anyway. Regardless, as I mentioned before, I'm throwing a big wad of cash down on this thing much like I would at a roulette table. I'm kissing it goodbye, and if it comes back, then great! So that's the attitude I'm taking, just for the record.
Derek, I'm also doing my story in color, since I plan to reprint the longer Copper stories in a big color book sometime in the near future.
