BIG Day!

okay...

well, today's the day.

go get it.

the all-new PERHAPANAUTS ANNUAL #1 is NOW ON SALE!

and we're officially at IMAGE!--and all is right with the world...


having written it--and especially, having LIVED with it these past few months, putting it together and whatnot--i don't think i have the same anticipation as some of you have. at least, from what you've told me.
i'm very eager to have it out there, to see if it was thrilling. or funny. or scary. or slightly entertaining in any way.

i can't wait to give it to my dad.

and i can't wait to hear what my friends think.
(and, y'know--you are my friends.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

i guess that craig and i HAVE had a similar version of that kind of eager anticipation over the past few weeks though, as we've been waiting patiently for our pal and legend, ART ADAMS, to get a chance to finish his cover for perhapanauts #1! if you pay any attention to comics, you'll know that art is a very, very busy artist, as you can see by the number of covers he's been working on lately for marvel! (here's a gorgeous one that matt sent me the other day, just as an example...)

thanks, matt!

and while it's a true thrill for craig and i to see our "kids" drawn by so many talented artists--if you haven't already, check out the galleries to see what i talkin' about--to be able to see big and choopie, mg, arisa, and molly beautifully rendered by art...well, that's what dreams are made of.

so the other night, WE were on the edge of OUR seats when art's cover arrived and...

i'm still quite speechless.

it's...

it's...

> sigh <

stop back here--and/or over at craig's blog-- http://www.craigrousseau.com/blog/index.html --on friday and see the...premiere?...debut...?...unveiling...? of the art adams perhapanauts cover!
also, on friday, johanna draper carlson's review of the annual!
and, hopefully, YOUR review as well!
(leave your comments here or over on the IMAGE boards Perhapanauts Forum...)

and, yes, the return of your "five for friday"...

that's gonna be quite a friday!
smell ya later!
todd


oh, ps: i toldja that craig and i have been doing a LOT of interviews and promotion for the new book and here is yet another interview by calvin mofield over at comic geek news! (that is, if you're not completely sick of me by now...) i really had fun this one--calvin didn't ask me a lot of the same old, same old...

Todd-
Oh yeah! Today is the day.

That's a great marvel cover by Art.
Looking forward to the unveiling/debut of his 'haps cover.

Leaf said...

Snagged my copy at lunch. Ended up with the Allred cover as it was the only one left on the shelves. (I'll have to keep my eye out for the Craig cover.) It was hard not reading it in the car, but my willpower was strong, so's I can savor it later tonight with a nice Chiante, my smoking vest and my favorite slippers.

Congrats, lads.

Brian said...

Cannot wait for quiting time so I can head to the LCBS and grab a long awaited 'Haps fix.

Cheers, Brian.


P.S. You did rememeber to remind Art that I called dibs on the cover, didn't you? I've already posted the arm and leg for sale on ebay, so I should have the cash soon. ; )

Cannot wait

Todd!!!!!

Dooood! I picked up my copy but I'm only halfway done with it, damn the man and the need to work. But good gawd it's AWESOME!!! You guys really out-did yourselves. Once I finish reading it I'll give my little review of it. It had to kill C! to have to draw the references to the Jersey Devils hockey team tho!Oh and you guys got the cover to this week's Comic Shop News!! I'm assuming the main story too, but I didn't get to look at that yet.

Adam Hutch said...

Arggg....not picking up my comics till next week....this wait'll be tough!!!

Heywood Jablomie said...

ok so i finally got to finish the book, and all i have to say if todd, c! and rico put out one hell of a book! i posted my mini review on the forums. all i have to say is......WOW!!!!

craig rousseau said...

hey, brian -
i think you're gonna need that leg to climb over our dead bodies... and probably that arm to pry the art from out cold dead hands as well...


just saying, it's THAT good.

Matt Wieringo said...

Congrats, guys. It's on the top of my reading stack and I can't wait to get to it. (Must sleep first, though.) Though I love Allred, I chose Craig's cover because it's so dang nifty. I love the retro design.

Can't wait to see that Adams cover in print too. I bought that AVENGERS CLASSIC issue just for the cover and then got a pleasant surprise with the great back up story with amazing art by someone named...Juan Doe? That's got to be a joke.

Anyway, congratulations again!

craig rousseau said...

yeah, wasn't that avengers classic cover just great?!
picked it up today (for the cover like matt)... and was also pleasantly surprised by juan doe's back up story.
(he also recently drew the gorgeous ff one shot - isle de la muerte... ff versus chupacabras... i kid you not)

Brian said...

Craig,

I cannot believe that you are ignoring the sacred and sacrosanct calling of "Dibs," but just draw and serialize "Down in the Dump" as a back up story in the 'Haps ongoing series and I'll let it slide. ; )

Terrific book. It took me a few days to land one because my local store had only brought one copy in and someone else had beat me to it (that's what I get for being new in town--they don't make me a priority over guys who have been subscribing there for ten years. What's the world coming to?), but it was worth all the trouble and then some. I can't wait for the monthly to start--between this book and "Booster Gold," comics are actually fun again!

Warren said...

I get my comics on Saturdays, so I just got Perhapanauts Annual #1 today. I loved it! It's my first Perhapanauts and it was a great introduction to the characters and the concept. You told me about it at Heroes Con last year, but I never did add it to my pull list. It's added now. You gotta sign all my copies in June.
