solicits: perhapanauts:second chances #2


postponing our regularly scheduled solicit parade for a paragraph or two here, i thought it would only be right to let you know that i was honored to be asked by our pal, augie de blieck, to do a podcast interview on his celebrated "pipeline podcast" last week...and it's up!
right now!

augie's been doing his column, the pipeline, at CBR ( for YEARS and these podcasts for quite a while now too (i've only been listening since i got hi-speed a few months ago), but if you want to spend a little time with someone who loves comics and can still get excited about them, you should check out augie's "show" (posted every tuesday night!) also, augie's got a great radio voice!

you can check out augie's column and show notes here:

and because of something i SAID during the interview, you can check out this little story here:

thanks, augie! you're the best!
(subscribe to augie's weekly podcast through CBR or through itunes!)

now back to the promised solicits for issue #2 of perhapanauts:second chances...

here's the first solicit i submitted for issue 2.
craig and rico had done such a great job on the choopie butt card that i though we should share it with all the previews readers as well. dave asked for something different because a change in format of the solicits meant that we wouldn't have the room to reproduce the card image. oh, well...

In keeping with our tradition of not spilling even the slightest detail of what happens in upcoming issues of the perhapanauts, we thought it might be fun to give YOU, our loyal, intelligent--and, might I add, attractive--Readers, this fun and funny gag to share with friends and family! Introducing the “CHOOPIE BUTT CARD”…!
Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Cut out the Choopie Butt Card.
Step b: Cut out Choopie’s butt.
Step 3: Place over curled forefinger.
Step 5: Ta da! You’re Welcome!
(now go show yer Mom.)

Also, don’t forget to order lots of

In keeping with our tradition of not spilling even the slightest detail of what happens in upcoming issues of the perhapanauts, we humbly submit the following totally fake listing. Enjoy!

Tonight on The PERHAPANAUTS: Second Chances--
Big wakes up in the shower only to find out that the past three issues were all a dream! While on vacation in Las Vegas, Molly and MG accidentally get married by an ordained Elvis. And Choopie becomes attached to a stray dog only to be heartbroken when the owner arrives to claim him. Choopie and the little boy argue over who loves the pooch more, but eventually Choopie does (almost) the right thing and returns the little dog to the boy–
–sans blood.

FC 32 pp $2.99
that's it!
more tomorrow!

Great Podcast, Todd! And you're right, Augie does have a great radio voice.

I'm still waitin' for my Perhapanauts #1 to come in the mail.... grrrrrr.

Great news about Tellos Todd. As for Augie's voice, even my lovely wife who was two rooms away asked whose voice that was and said he had a great one and since she's got her undergrade degree in speech communications, I'd say that was a high compliment indeed.

As you know, being the frugal New Englander that I am, I tend not to buy the same comic twice, but in the case of Tellos getting the oversized hardcover treatment, I'm there. Of course, the really great news is the prospect of more Tellos from Todd & Mike in 2007. Woo, hoo!

Congrats on the Tellos book. I can't wait to see it. That's awesome. I haven't listened to the podcast yet. But, I listen to Augie every week and I love his show. Plus, you're in elite company. On the podcast he's only interviewed Erik Larsen, Peter David and you so far. Nice.


todd said...

dude, i TOLD you i'd send you one...

yeah, i think that there are some books that really shouldn't be missed in the oversized format, and, not bragging, what mike and paul did in tellos certainly warrants it.

i could take 'em both.
