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.
The filthy capitalist in me is pleased when people ask for older stuff to be reprinted. That 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 bares reprinting…again.
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 most 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 hangers or anything like that and it’s a nice historical chunk of the series.
with classic stuff like-
-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 funny 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 collection.
If you have any of this…then you already have what’s in this collection.
coupon code -humbug- good for 20% off at checkout because I haven’t gotten around to removing that code. (I’m a busy man)
X-mas type stuff on store is HERE…newer stuff is at the bottom, scroll down.
Still have a few 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. So…go HERE for that.
