buy my comic!
For the majority of you who do not read PREVIEWS every month, and may be interested in the behind-the-scenes world of Runaway Comic, here is the catalog listing (dingy white background) and my portion of Fantagraphics' full-page ad (pale pumpkin background). Remember, blogger will smash, but you can click the image and see it larger.
And now, a level of tedium previously unknown to any but TCJ message board devotees: My DVD-esque commentary on these listings. Thank you blogosphere, information age, 24-hour-news-cycle!
Wow, cover art looks pretty good reduced so teeny and printed on crap paper at 85dpi! I am pleased! Please note: my visuals are patented, and knock-offs will be prosecuted! And I want to personally thank whoever put the word "rambunctious" in there! THANKS!
ARGH! I asked Gary not to mention Gnatrat! Oh well, it is legendary after all, so I guess they decided it would generate sales. Which is good, that's why I need a publisher and a promoter to make SOME decisions like this. I don't want to mention it because it feels so old, feels like I am resting on my laurels. I'm sick of being "the Gratrat guy", darn you, world, can't you see how multi-faceted I am?!? But that is silly ego. I guess. What the hell do I know, I just write funny stories. Actually, maybe Gary did not write this copy - maybe whoever wrote it did not get the memo. Anyway, it is okay, I am just rambling here, filling up blog space. I am more than thrilled with the copy under my cover art! And of course, they meant to say "20 Nude Dancers 20".
Thanks for listening. Go tell your comic book dealer to order my comic!
