YAY MICKEY!


(I'll post the new old Pumpie comic next week, so it's not chopped up over the weekend)

If you read about my Special Vulcan Bond with Howard Cruse over at his blog, you may enjoy this little tune about Mighty Vulcan with his torch held high!

Where did I get such a gem? FROM MICKEY, OF COURSE!

*blush*

reading Howard's comment about "mooning Homewood" reminded me of a local novelty 45 I've got called "Moon Over Homewood". it's not nearly as funny as it sounds, though.

Woo HOO! Is this naked bum displayed in Alabama?

Ah yes, Mark, I remember that little song. It still has the power to make my heart swell with affection for the ol' Magic City. I do feel, though, that Black Sabbath's cover of the song years later had more edge.

Tho I may be dead to you, I'm agitating, MM, Steve Bisette, you fellas GET IT TOGETHER and pull Rick Grimes out of the obscurity he so richly does not deserve. Use your connections in the BIZ, make some waves if not for my sake, then for the greater good! I believe his time has come and it is past due! Put in the call to Rick Reynalds Groth and co, and make it so!

That Vulcan has some tight buns!

Absolutely. You should say "butt" every chance you get. Life is too short to not say butt.

Mark and I have been in touch -- I'm wary, though, of bringing anything to my old pal Rick Grimes that might just lead to more disappointment. I published more Grimes than any publisher (Rick Veitch is second in line on that count); we had an all-Grimes book planned in '91-'92, but that fell apart waiting for a big-time comics hotshot to do the intro (Tundra marketing argued we could only release the book with that name star connected with it -- and they may have been right, at that).

Butt, I'll work with Mark, if there's a chance... but only if it won't lead to more heartbreak for Grimes. This comics industry eats guys like Rick for pre-breakfast, orange-juicy snacks, and doesn't spit them out -- it's the long, slow intestinal dissolve and final dung-chute-push they endure.

I think it's a totally different climate right now. This is a post Fort Thunder, Kramer's Ergot comics world. There wasn't an APE or an SPX to support people like Grimes back when Grimes was doing his thing. There's a loyal, albeit small, audience for so-called art-comics, and I think Grimes work fits well in that milieu. It's the difference between getting lost in the sea of movie promos stormtroopers and Clingons at San Diego, and being among folk who are genuinely digging what you're doing when what you're doing is a little funkier than what other people are doing.

I think the best bet for Grimes, to introduce him to a new audience, would be one of these Ignatz books--Fantagraphics one off, 32 page oversize books with fancy paper. It would be a modest way to showcase work by Grimes that's already in the can. He doesn't NEED a fancy shmancy introduction---the work will stand out and stand on its own next to stuff like Matotti's recent black and white wordless Ignatz thingy for instance. I'm sure a back cover blurb or two will do the trick if you need that kind of trickiness, but I think Grimes work is compelling enough on it's own, and in the current climate you don't have to sell 15,000 books to justify your existence.
