Stuff I'll have for sale at HeroesCon.

HeroesCon is this weekend. I'll be there this year in the middle of Indie Island with stuff to sell to all of you good, good people. What kind of stuff, you ask?

Big Deal Comics & Stories #10 and #11, each featuring book length stories, "Knocked 'Em" in issue 10 and "Sometimes I Think About You at Night" in issue 11. Both have hand colored hearts in each issue. Didn't plan for that, but both stories had hearts that needed to be in color.

I still have some copies of earlier issues of Big Deal Comics & Stories. These are mostly made up of comics that originally appeared in Flagpole Magazine years ago.

I'll have monster drawings for sale for $5 each. They're black & white on comic board, each in its own bag. It's like a bag and boarded comic, only without the lousy comic but a drawing of a monster instead. That's a deal. I'll also be doing $5 commissions through the weekend as well. 

FLUKE t-shirts! We have last years' design on the right and the classic brown one on the left.

FLUKE anthologies from past years. All full of good comics by good people. Me and Robert Newsome will be at tables AA-541 and AA-542.

Robert Newsome will have copies of The Atomic Elbow #1 and 2 for sale. They're great. Buy them.

So, please; stop by our tables. We'd love to see you.

New Printing of "Knocked 'Em".

So, I'm reprinting Big Deal Comics & Stories #10, which featured a book length comic entitled "Knocked 'Em". It was originally 11x17", color cover, with a five dollar cover price. I made roughly about thirty of these things. This issue was giant, sure, but it was a novelty. It didn't need to be that size other than for me having the bragging rights of "Hey, I made a mini-comic one time that was 11x17" and wow was it awkward to carry around once you bought it".

On that note, I'm going to do another printing of it, but smaller and cheaper. The new one will be 5.5x8.5" digest size for two bucks. I'm adding a few new elements the giant one didn't have. For one, the back cover will sport this drawing of a banner with my website on it...

...and this illustration for the title page.

With the new cover only being in black & white, it will look a tad fancier than the tall color one, which was influenced by the cover of a 1961 Biology book from Golden Press (the one with Charlie Harper artwork). I'd been looking at early 20th Century fiction magazine covers that predated the 20's pulps. This one was slightly based on The Argosy issues from the early 1900's.

I'll have some information about how to order this and copies of Big Deal Comics & Stories #11, featuring "Sometimes I Think About You At Night".
