Comic Book Printing

Haven’t started doing anything with the comic besides open the files, stare at them blankly, then close them.

I’m currently trying to decide where to get these bad boys printed. I should figure this out before I actually do anything, so I don’t have formatting issues. I’ve narrowed it down to www.lulu.com and www.KA-BLAM.com. Both of these digital publishers make it pretty easy, I just have to upload files, they do everything, and send me the copies. Definitely beats Kinkos.

Ka-Blam is a little cheaper and they offer glossy comic book covers. But their website is so crappy looking, it makes me nervous for some reason. My grandpappy used to say, “Never trust a man with a crappy website” (and no jokes about not trusting me). And Ka-Blam makes you put in a big ugly add for themselves to make it only make it only marginally cheaper.

Lulu is a little more professional looking and has lots more options… however, all their bells and whistles make them more expensive. At the end of the day, all I really care about is price.

Either way, I’ll end up with something that actually looks like a comic book. Not something stapled together by a insane person (that being me), or a a 3rd grade book report.

Scanned the Comic Book

I finally got around to scanning my comic book. It took me months to draw, months to scan, and now let’s see if I ever finish anything else with it. And I’m sure when I actually do finish my comic the first thing anyone will say is, “It took you how long? And it’s this crappy?”

But anyway here’s my one of my favorite panels.

Just how KISS fits in with the rest of the comic, you’ll just have to wait and see. And unlike other KISS comics, it will not feature authentic KISS blood in the ink, but I may get Journey to squeeze out a few drops.

Five Points Rejection

I really like this rejection letter. Mostly because of the little bear insignia holding a lamps. I never heard of Five Points before I submitted my story, but now I really want to get in! I’m about bears. And I’m all about lamps. If you know anything about me, that’s what you know.

On the a side note, I’m starting to think the problem could be the title. “Tesseract Fuckfest,” just doesn’t seem to be drawing in the editors.

Shenandoah: Thanks for Trying Us

I’ve had this rejection for a while, but I haven’t had time to scan it until now. The old “Thanks for Failing,” always a pick me up. A two second hand written response really brightens up a relatively lackluster form letter by Shenandoah. This goes into the “It just feels good to be nominated” category… well, I have to imagine it feels even better to win.
