  Ancient Prophecy
Johanna, knowing my interest in Prophecy Magazine (now Prophecy Anthology), wrote to let me know that the Prophecy home page has been updated with the following info:
Prophecy Anthology, Volume 1 Releases March 15th, 2004

Prophecy Anthology will make its debut on March 15th, 2004, featuring a collection of sequential art by artists such as Shannon Wheeler, Scott McCloud, Sho Murase, Yuko Shimizu, Nathan Fox and Bernie Mireault.

The anthology will be shipped on March 15th to Prophecy Magazine subscribers as well as to customers who pre-purchased the anthology. The book will release in comic books stores nationwide the first week in April, 2004, through Diamond Distribution. For more information regarding the Anthology, check out our What's Inside page.
Sure enough, searching through Diamond's text file for April orders, there it is:
PAGE 304
SPOT     FEB04 2592    PROPHECY ANTHOLOGY VOL 1 (C: 4)    $30.00     = $
Thanks for the info, Johanna.  I'm a bit surprised by the price, but I'll wait to check out the full solicitation in Previews before I make a decision about getting this.  It would have been nice if Sequent Media had provided more info about the book on their site (page count?  dimensions? format? full contents?), especially if they're expecting people to buy it right off their site.  Why is it so hard for companies (not just comic companies) to put together a competent, professional web presence?  (Ignore me:  I QA web applications for my day job, so stuff like this makes me cranky.)
