An update and some interior page reveals from Art of Mythic Legions: Book One just came over to us from the guys who are producing the book for us at KRCO!


Hey guys!!

KRCO Editor in Chief, Jesse Snider here with great news!! The ART OF MYTHIC LEGIONS: BOOK ONE is nearly complete!! Finishing touches are being put on all FORTY-EIGHT PAGES as we speak and lettering on Greg Weisman’s incredible script for the comic book begins today!

We are so proud of this book and at the same time, so dismayed over how long it is taking to get to you. As you may have noticed we’re looong since past Halloween.

While there are many contributing factors to the book’s lateness, I feel I must shoulder the bulk of the responsibility. This was my first company project on any sort of schedule or budget. We got off to a six month late start on our script due to scheduling problems, which eventually caused further scheduling problems for our artists down the line and we didn’t have the budget to buy our way out of our predicament.

HOWEVER, slow and steady is about to win the race!


The book looks unbelievable and we are hoping to wrap by the end of next week and rush it out for print! The printers have been pushing us around a little because we are a small company and saying it’s gonna take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to get the book printed, but we are shopping for a better, quicker printer to get the job done in a more timely fashion.

As a THANK YOU for your patience and understanding in this matter, we are going to release the comic section of the Art of Mythic Legions: Book One as a free PDF download on February 6th, 2017 to everyone who has backed the book through Kickstarter or has pre-ordered the book before February 1st, 2017! You’ll receive emailed instructions on how to download that soon.

We just know that you guys are going to love reading this book as much as we loved making it.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
