Any hints at what we can expect to see in volume one that's CPC related?

Everything - that is all content is listed on the KS page [size=78%][/size]

I backed it too ! :)

VOL 1 has an article about Batman Group, I look forward reading it.VOL 2 (later this year) will have the article about Sonic GX.

Both articles will be in Volume 2  ;D ;D
