There...we reprinted older stuff.
As the guy who makes the Arsenic Lullaby stories, I am
always focused on what is next. Because what is next is awesome
and what I'm working on now is a pain in the ass, and what I did
previously...I have little memory of.
capitalist in me is pleased when people ask for older stuff to
be reprinted. It means a lot of new people are finding Arsenic
Lullaby. The original run of Arsenic Lullaby ( the comic book
sized issues) hasn't been reprinted in about 6 years...seven
years? I don't remember exactly, but it's been long enough
that enough people want to be able to own the early work that it
The last time, I reprinted
basically all of it into a big 450 pg collection. I'm not doing
that again, it was too much work, and as far as I have come at
illustration...some of the older stories are embarrassing to
look at compared to what I do now. The writing on the
other hand, has always been pretty sharp. Even with some
of the early work being over 15 years old, it's still edgy and
funny as hell.
Here's what I got for you.
It's 90 some pages of what I consider
the best or more essential from the early part of the run. The
plan is to do a part two with the best from the later part of
the run, but this stands on it's own and there are no cliff
hanger or anything like that and it's a nice historical chunk of
-the first appearance of Voodoo Joe-a
couple of Alien Centaur stories-
Baron Von Donut vs some Nazis-
The Teddy Roosevelt and Tooth Fairy Conspiracy
- and whole bunch
of other stuff.
It's all really good work, when you trim 11
issues of an already great run down to 90pgs...you're really
talking the cream of the crop.
It's limited to 300 copies
however ( There's a reason for that and it's a long story)
signed and numbered with a sketch on the back.
The question for some of you is "Do I
have this already?"
One day I'll make a big timeline of
what came out when and what was collected into what. "one
day", which means probably never.
I'll break things down
like this- these stories are from comic book sized issues, not
magazine sized .
None of this is in this new
If you have any of this...then you already have what's
in this collection.
And, I Still have a handful of copies left
of the Misprint that nearly bankrupted me.
It is an 88 page collection that was printed backwards.
I was going to set them all on fire in waiting room of the
printer, but some of you have been asking if you can own one.
HERE for that.
