be gentle...

hey, gang! todd here.

welcome to our perhapanauts blog!

i'm assuming, of course, that if you're here you've already read
the first issue of our new comic, the perhapanauts, and were pokin'
around looking for more info, background, fun, facts, lies,
recipes, stories, sketches, anecdotes, scoops, and gossip about
your favorite new paranormal comic book team.

well, that's what we wanna do here.
i'll be posting here several times a week with new dirt on the team,
what we've got coming up, and insights into some of the weird stuff
i found out doing research for this crazy book. let me tell you, there
is some really bizarre stuff out there. i hope you'll stop by and check
it out from time to time.

and, until we can get a message board up and running, i guess we
can have some kind of interactionin the comments section below.

as you will prob'ly notice very shortly, i've never done a blog before
so i ask that you be a bit patient with me while i get this thing going.

thanks for checking this out.
and for taking a chance on the perhapanauts.
and for telling your friends. oh yeah, did i say that? no.
please tell all your friends about the perhapanauts too!
we can't keep makin' 'em if we aren't sellin' 'em.

thanks. see ya next time.

the perhapanauts # 3

In our continuing effort to NOT tell you what happens
in upcoming issues, today we field a letter from
one of our avid Readers.

Dear Perhapa-dudes,
Since the chupacabra originally
comes out of Latin-American folklore, shouldn’t
Choopie speak with an outrageous Mexican accent
like Speedy Gonzales?
“He like my seester, I theenk.”
It would be so much funnier like that.
Your numero uno amigo--
Davy Glasmer
Dengen’s Creek, Iowa

Dear Davy~
Good question.
But no.
While the legend of the goatsucker
does have it’s origins in Central American culture,
Choopie was just a blood-sucking beast when he was first
captured. It wasn’t until he was exposed to the Evolvo-Ray
that Choopie began to develop basic language skills.
He was then exposed to countless hours of American television.
That’s where he learned to talk.

Thanks for writing and don’t forget to order the perhapanauts #3.
It will be much better than this solicit.
And it’ll have pictures.

Hey, perhapa-pals!--Todd Dezago here.
I really don’t want to date myself
but, y’know, I can remember a time
when there wasn’t any PREVIEWS. No solicitations,
no cover image, no three sentence encapsulation that
sorta dilutes the thrills of an upcoming story. Back then
the only way you knew what your hero was in store
for next month was on the last panel of this month’s
issue! Like; Next Issue: The Rhino!
It was enticing! It was exciting!
Don’t get me wrong--I love PREVIEWS--it’s wonderful
publication.However, in honor of those bygone days, we here
at the perhapanauts will be using this space to introduce ourselves,
preview some awesome artwork, and maybe tell a few jokes.
Check back here next month for some of that kind of fun.

Oh, and please check out the perhapanauts #2 for a comic
that’s packed with adventure, chills, and excitement!
After all, we do it for you.
