well, i've sent you all over to brokenfrontier to see the "Inside Look" i wrote up on this issue, but i forgot to mention that the idea behind the "Inside Look" feature is for the writer to SPOIL the whole issue. it's s'posed to be a deconstruction of the story--and i don't know if i was too successful with that...i didn't get WAY into the character's deeper motivations and issues, i thought that would be too boring. especially for anyone who hasn't read the book. anyway, here's the spoiler SPOILER--don't read that article until AFTER you've read the issue!
i'll say that again...
don't read that "Inside Look" at www.brokentfrontier.com until AFTER you've read the issue!
that said, Second Chances #3 is out.
go get one.
over at myspace they have a feature where you can post a bulletin to alert all of your "friends" to what-all is going on in your neighborhood. here's what i posted on myspace;
PERHAPANAUTS:Second Chances #3! featuring the DOVER DEMON! (that's him right there...) ON SALE NOW!
REAL Monsters in a REAL Comic Book!
On April 22, 1977, several teenagers in various locations in the small town of Dover, Massachusetts, reported seeing a strange and eerie creature walking by the side of the road in the middle of the night. After a lengthy investigation which concluded that this was neither a hoax or a collaboration, famed Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman dubbed the creature The DOVER DEMON.
For more information on the Dover Demon...well, I guess you could Google it. There's lotsa good stuff there...
But if you want to know what REALLY happened, and how it will affect us all now, nearly thirty years later, than be sure to pick up your copy of PERHAPANAUTS:Second Chances #3! You don't have to have read the first two of the series--it's all pretty well covered--but it wouldn't hurt our sales if ya did...
Thank you for reading!
I am the Dover Demon and I approve this message.
also, while the last issue of the series isn't even out yet, the trade paperback collection of second chances is solicited in this months previews! what it doesn't say is that the trade features all four issue of second chances, of course, as well as our self-published perhapanauts "not gigantic color special #1", and a fistful of awesome pin-ups by some of our favorite guys; ted mckeever, david petersen, sean "cheeks" galloway, jonboy meyers, mike manley, derek fridolfs, and probably, hopefully, maybe another super-superstar/legend if he can find the time in his busy schedule! i'm not naming names, but craig and i are on the edge of our seats hoping that this can happen! hopefully the orders on this will be up high enough for dark horse to let us do a third series, so...give the gift of reading. that's all i hafta say...
