I’m really burning the candle at both ends and don’t actually have time for a blog…but I have A LOT of news I need you all to know about, so rather than just have a list of links, I am going to bribe your eyes with some covers I’ve finished to keep them scrolling down…
FIRST THOUGH, just in case you missed the news on Bleeding Cool News, or on Comic Related, or in previous blogs, or on the Monsters and Metal Podcast, or my interview on the 50,000 watt WISN AM1130 (that’s right, I was a stranger in a strange land on am talk radio…but I managed not to drop an F-bomb or insert my opinion on anything other than Trip Tank and Arsenic Lullaby)or through flyers at comic-cons such as C2E2 or flyers at selected comic book stores on Free Comic Book day…
(whew…I been working my ass off here…you better know about it)
…You should tune into Comedy Central Wednesday 9:30cst 10:30 est and watch TRIP TANK!!! why?
check out this press release ( and copy and paste it where ever you think will do the most good. )
Arsenic Lullaby contaminates Comedy Central’s Trip Tank
Comedy Central has recently launched a new animated series called TRIP TANK. The duo behind Robot Chicken developed the show which features a collection of recurring animated shorts built into a half-hour block much like the 1990’s hit Liquid Television. The plots, which come from such names as Will Ferrell‘s partner Adam McKay, Tom Gammill (The Simpsons, Monk) and Jon Glaser (Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Human Giant), range from a magical alcoholic wheelchair helping sick children to a group of aliens studying the world’s most average guy. AND… episode 7 (may 14th ) features a short segment adapted from dark humor comic book Arsenic Lullaby.
Douglas Paszkiewicz, writer and illustrator of Arsenic Lullaby was approached to pitch ideas for the Trip Tank, and the producers settled on a specific e of A.L.’s alien stories (which one specifically will remain secret until the airing of the episode). Douglas was then called on to write the script. Arsenic Lullaby has been one of the comic book industries best independent success stories and comic book fans have known for some time about its dark, despicable wonder. On May 14th so will the denizens of cable T.V. Can the remaining signs of the apocalypse be far behind?
Full episodes of the Trip Tank can be found at this link

Did I mention Trip Tank on Comedy Central? or better yet, DID YOU mention it?
here’s what I need from you. First, I need you to watch it, THEN, watch it online and share it and like it AND most importantly leave some positive comments on the trip tanks social media pages. I wouldn’t waste my time asking for this if I didn’t think it was important. This is a new age. Ratings are one thing and they matter, but feedback on social media gets noticed and matters. I ,and hopefully you, want to see more of my work on this show so it needs to A-get another season and B-be informed how much you liked seeing your favorite dark humor comic adapted for the small screen.
Here’s a couple of links to blow up
Thanks and tune in on Wens.
