Ugh, you nebulae hipsters are the worst! The Hubble namesake wasn't even around in 1745!

Wake up and smell the transistors, old timer! Hell, wake up and smell the electricity!

Ahahaha, the sad thing is I'm 20

But I do completely agree with you about the Hubble Telescope. It has been an absolute revelation to viewing the universe beyond us.

The one thing I wish we could do is somehow she through he clouds and atmospheres of planets and see the surfaces of some of them. I am so intrigued as to the surface of Jupiter, if I could view any planet in our solar system it would be Jupiter

Wow, this thread went from elation, to disappointment, to anger and bickering, then took a left turn into...something strange, yet intriguing.

Looking forward to this, and all upcoming, Viceroy sets! Even Potatoes!

Just waiting on more sketches to be returned, and then we'll post some additional previews.

We'll also have some insert card info in the coming weeks.

Can't wait to see some more sketch cards, and the inserts. Any idea of an approximate release date? Are we looking sometime in March?

Yeah, sometime in March. No later than the end of March for sure. Our future sketch releases will use a release window and we'll zero in on an exact date from there. This year we should have 1 sketch based product per quarter. Once we get into that quarter, the month will be selected followed by the exact release date.

We want to make sure that we never have to push a release back. Due to artwork timelines, sketch releases need a little more time overall than products that do not include sketch cards.

Our non-sketch products will follow a slightly different release schedule.

Next up... Bob Adauto's preview! Also, we decided to use 2 images per preview sheet and make them a little bigger and clearer, since almost all will be in this horizontal orientation.

The second one is obviously the Horsehead Nebula also known as Barnard 33. First looks familiar but can't place my finger on the name ...
