Thomas, Randolph, letterer Deron Bennett, and colorist Emilio Lopez stated: "In 2019 we set out to create an action-fueled, fantasy-rich comic the likes of which nobody had seen before. We wanted a comic that channeled and reflected the many experiences and emotions of Black people everywhere, and then to surround it with magic and intrigue. Excellence
has been an incredible journey to be a part of so far, and we cannot wait for it to continue. Make sure to stay up to date on the campaign, new bonus content, and more! We want to make this the hardcover edition of your dreams. And remember… Excellence is real."
