Black Hands 2010 special #1

Watermarked PDF

Note: The print edition of this comic is sold out. However, this special "Director's Cut" PDF is now available featuring FULL COLOR strips and two bonus deleted scenes.

This three-issue miniseries focuses on the hilarious gaming misadventures of Nitro, Newt, Gordo, Stevil, and Weird Pete, a group of role-players in Muncie, Indiana. Like the Knights, the Black Hands represent a gamut of people we’ve all known at the table (though personally deny being), but with trouble and in-fighting turned up to 11! Yet, their adventures are still hauntingly familiar and always humorous reminiscence because, like it or not, we’ve all known (or been) gamers like them.

    Original electronic
    Scanned image
    These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

    For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

    For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
    Original electronic format
    These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
