Issue 1 is in the can and ready to go.
Coming soon to Gamestores and Comicshops near you.
As will be typical the first run will feature the full color cover, while reprints will sport the less awesome black and white cover. So if you see the color versions snap it up cuz it won't be around for long.
First Issue contains an introduction to the game as well as instructions for creating the Demonboard, the playing surface used in the game.
The Lair game absolutely requires the board so this instructional first issue is a must have.
I won't point out how useful the board would be in other RPG's as well, it's just not my style.
