I have a dream


I shoulda done this yesterday, MLK Day, but it just didn't occur to me. And I can't wait til NEXT MLK Day, so here it is:

Something Slatts said keeps bugging me. He said:

"There's a part of that's really afraid to go into a COMIC SHOP!...I don't know the protocol and I would surely be the stranger in a strangeland!"

This is unacceptable! I have been over the mountain and I have seen the glory! I dream of a day when ALL peoples of ALL levels of comics knowlege can sit at the table and pass the biscuits like decent civilized friends!

All you/us comics geeks! Embrace Slatts! He's cool.

All you chicken weenies! Get in that comic book store and tell them you demand your copy of Runaway Comic. Do it TODAY! Slatts, you know karate! If that comic book shop clerk gives you any lip, bite his leg!

If this comic book does not take off like a scalded fanboy this will probably be my last run at the windmill. I ain't got time to fart around here. My fate is in your hands. Rise up, Runaway Army! ATTACK!

I went to Comic Relief in beautiful downtown Berkeley yesterday and requested like a mo'fo! And the dude with three, count 'em, THREE lip rings said "Right on" and wrote up my request.

Tomorrow I'll go in there in disguise and do it all over again!

O.K., you absolutely HAVE to print that image (attack.jpg) out as a poster to display as you do the convention scene this summer!

Seems to me it'd be a perfect fit for A.P.E. (groan)....

Be careful, slatts... don't let the goofballs behind the counter talk you into anything you know is wrong. Remember: cover your red light zone!

OK, that's a start. I knew I could count on Michele! Slatts, I'll be nagging you. Everybody else, CHOP CHOP!
