Hi! I decided to finally take the plunge with Sluggy books but browsing IndyPlanet, I can't find the first 6 books, which is strange since they print on demand. Does anybody know what's the deal?

They are now Megatomes. Book 1 to 3 are in Megatome 1 and book 4 to 6 are in Megatome 2 (I think each of those even contain one additional story compared to the books, but I am not sure)
I think they will be directly available on the Sluggy store as soon as it get opened (which should be soon), so try to avoid getting them at an overpriced value:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/440821.Little_Evils

I wish Pete would give some more news about coming Megatomes, But I guess he is trying to catch up with the current chapters with the books first before going back to Megatomes.

More curious is that IndyPlanet doesn't have "dangerous days" (book 9). Wonder why.

Pete still has physical copies of Megatomes 1 and 2 to sell, so they are not on Indy Planet. Whenever he runs out, those will be available on Indy Planet.

Book 9, is in the same situation.

Now as for more Megatomes beyond 1 and 2, there is most likely never going to be any. The only reason he made those was because books 1-6 were out of print, only in black and white, some things had to be cut for it to fit, the page format did not work the best, and they were shorter than the current books. From 7 onward, everything is how he wanted the books to be. So all he would be doing, would be slapping multiple books together as is.

I thought that was the point of the Megatomes. But thanks a lot for those clarifications.

Now that I think about it, not many people many know what books 1-6 looked like. So I took a photo of them for you to see the difference.

I see that I was wrong partially about one thing. The bonus stories in books 5-6 were in color after all. Everything else was in black and white though.

Once indyPlanet start publishing the Megatomes, do you know if they will be hardcovers or TPBs?
