Emerald City is a-Comin'

Things have been crankin' here at the CerebraMill.  Turns out we're much closer to our Ordinary Angels pitch than we presumed, and preparation continues on the Airship Daedalus property which launches officially the Sunday before Emerald City Comicon

In brainstorming promotional ideas for Daedalus, Brian Beardsley and I were chatting about getting some cheap plastic secret decoder rings made, a la the classic pulp radio & television serials.  But then I had the idea of taking the secret code element and merging it with a collectible postcard...

Character bio on the front:

Cipher wheel on the back:
Every Sunday we'll release a new strip, and include an encoded message for our faithful readers.  It might be a clue to future story events, or it may be some hidden background elements.  In any case, I can assure you it will never say, "BE SURE TO DRINK YOUR OVALTINE."  Unless Ovaltine suddenly decides to sponsor the site, in which case all bets are off.
