Achewood Great Outdoor Fight Graphic Novel?

In this A.V. Club interview with Achewood creator Chris Onstad, there is mention of expanding on and putting into book form the very popular "Great Outdoor Fight" storyline. Onstad says:

Since then, I've got all this content I'm talking about with kind of a major publisher. You know the "Great Outdoor Fight" story arc? I'm putting together… not quite a graphic novel, but I'm laying it all out as a linear story and adding new content and a ton of writing and background on what The Great Outdoor Fight is, and I'm hoping to publish that as some sort of perfect-bound, color-cover, proper edition. I'm just finishing the writing up for that. I think that will go over really well. Critically, I think, that was our finest hour. It really had a good response from people, which surprised me, because it was the first time I've really asked the audience to have patience, because they weren't one-offs every day or gag strips every day. It was a three-month narrative that really paid off, and I was really pleased, because I was afraid to do it at first.

This would be an exceptionally cool book - I hope it comes together.
