RELEASE DATE CHANGE
Before we get to the good news I need to mention that the Volume 1 release has been regrettably delayed for (hopefully) only a week at this point. This is due to a number of factors (not the least of which is the massive logistics involving multiple discs/episodes/soundtracks) manufacturing issues, and our resolve to put out a superior product. Several of our celebrity commentaries have been added at the very last minute as well which has slowed us down (but I'm sure is worth it). IN ANY EVENT I apologise for the delay and take full responsibility for it. THEREFORE I am resetting the counter to Tuesday November 25th today and am extending the $19.95 early-bird pre-order price to that date as well.
NOW, having said all that...let's get to THE GOOD STUFF!
HERE'S the final list of what's included in
THE COMPLETE STEVE CANYON ON DVD VOLUME ONE:

Here's the final front and back cover artwork by Johann Mitchell
The interior reversible cover insert. We are concealing the image of the right side artwork (the reversible cover) so that it will be a surprise for all of the people who pre-ordered. We will reveal the hidden image here in early December. Let's just say it's really cool!!
