Valyrian Steel has updated to note that though producing Longclaw has taken longer than initially planned, they’re now hoping to get the final details settled by the end of the month so that they can begin production and have them ready for delivery by May. They mention that after Longclaw, Needle will be the next sword they’ll reproduce, and after that Ice unless A Dance with Dragons introduces a sword they’d rather do.
Dark Sword Miniatures has sent an e-mail on their list indicating that sales have been strong on the first set of miniatures, and that in six to eight weeks they’ll work in earnest on the next ten figures in Tom Meier’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of miniatures.
Finally, Marvel Comics has released issue 4 (of 6) of The Hedge Knight II: The Sworn Sword after a long delay. The same creative team from the previous issues, Ben Avery and Mike S. Miller, are still at work on it, and it looks like it’ll wrap up well indeed. Definitely hit your nearest comic shop to get a hold of it, if you can.
