@RossElder @btrgo We are always happy to send some floppy issues (single issues) overseas; if anyone is headed that way or has friends on deployment, let us know!
@Tango9 @JackMurphyRGR If you're a collector, by all means! Find us at a con and get it signed if you do. The volume, though, collects 1-5. Be sure to find 6, 7, 8 out there too now!
@Tango9 @JackMurphyRGR This should be what you're looking for: http://www.amazon.com/Activity-Volume-TP-Nathan-Edmondson/dp/1607065614/ref=pd_cp_b_0/180-9315214-7783327
@LauraWalkerKC rock and roll--let us know if you do and let us know what you think. Thanks for reading.
@Tango9 @JackMurphyRGR I don't see where #1 is 30.00, but I'm guessing that's ISSUE 1, not VOLUME 1. It would sell higher because it's a first edition/collectible. Volume 1, which collects issues 1-5, retails for 12.99; single issues for 3.50.
@JackMurphyRGR @Tango9 heavyink.com / tfaw.com should have the singles.
@JHR are "the guys" soldiers on deployment?
Jack, thanks for the post.
Colonel/ Jack: we're just setting up foreign rights distribution deal for THE ACTIVITY (and my other titles), making them available in shops in Europe/S. America/ a host of other countries. More info when it hits.
Next issue is SOMALIA, and you can expect some BLACK KNIGHTs and CRYE PRECISION among other notable buzzworthy items in the issue.
For those who missed it, CNN's Security blog picked up on the book: http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/16/comic-imagines-world-of-top-secret-military-unit/ (your comments welcome there, too, seems there's some heat on it :) )

@DanVazquez You will learn more about the histories/ranks in future issues, but as it stands:
Danny: SFC --off the top of my head, possible I'm getting it mixed without looking.

@Iassen Donov I'd love to involve you; can you DM me somehow?
Greetings, folks. Thank you kindly for reading, buying, commenting, the like. We appreciate Jack for reviewing and for the SOFREP folks for being continually helpful (we can ALWAYS use more input on this series!)
I think you'll enjoy what's to come for THE ACTIVITY.
For the sake of dialogue, @SEAN SPOONTS we do our best to not fall into cliches with the book (this is no soap opera or superhero comic) but occasionally we need tight, direct motivational moments. A character has to arc, after all. That said, part of what we are doing with that part of "Weatherman"'s past--and we will deal with this later on in the series more--is show how some armchair-generaling and politics affected soldiers, particularly in Anaconda (I think most of the SOFREP folks know better than I what I'm talking about).
At any rate, I appreciate you taking the time. Our goal is to make this series as realistic as possible without losing the thrill-ride. SOFREP is a helpful resource, of course!
Thanks for this, Jack. We should all post a link to it in the TIMES piece comments section.

Isn't the Army already employing CINDER to weed out possible...dissidents in the ranks?

@writer_reader are those personal details the best things to be posting online?

...although, I must admit, part of me was hoping that you would start talking about something you weren't supposed to be, and a satellite laser would blast down on you through the roof. Obviously, I've been watching too much Michael Bay.

Excellent presentation, Jack. I see more of this in your future.
