It being Shakespeare’s birthday, it’s an excellent day to commemorate something that’s very much like Shakespeare.
BUT WITH LOTS MORE PUNCHING.
It is my perpetual regret that I’ve never written a comic good enough for Nick Lowe to do a theme tune to.
We all live in the shadow of NextWave.
FRANK CHO REVISES ‘THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS’ SCENE TO MAKE IT EVEN MORE ANTI-SUPERMAN
He went about proving it with a post to his blog this week in which he shared a commission for his pal who goes by the name Hawaiian Dave. It’s a remix of the climactic two-page spread from Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns in which Batman and Superman have their big, final fight in Crime Alley. Cho has added in a bit of commentary, and it is anything but Superman-friendly.
If you told me Frank Cho had the actual mental age of a thirteen year old, I would not be surprised.
So my Kickstarter for my 200 page OGN, SEXCASTLE, is still going. As of right now everyone at the $25 and over rewards is getting a sweet bookmark and sticker. Now we’re working towards a temporary tattoo (the Keep On Chuckin’ image above) and other fun things.
Do you know someone who likes good comics outside of the mainstream? Do you know someone who loves the artistic sensibilities of 80s action movies? Do you know someone who loves nunchucks and tough guy talk? This is that, and a whole lot more. It’s about personal redemption, it’s about parental responsibility, life’s influence, choices and, yeah, okay awesome fight stuff.
This won’t be in book stores. I don’t have a major printer doing major distribution. I don’t have a publicist. I just make comics and want people to read them. I make GOOD comics for the enjoyment of other people. These 30 days of this Kickstarter are my 30 days to get the book in people’s hands. I have to get the word out.
You like good comics, right?
I want my god-damn Assassin’s Union membership card. Keep on pledging.
I honestly don’t know how to deal with this unexpected coverage, I’m kinda just giggling to myself here.
