the MORE i promised you!


hope y'all had a great weekend!

mine was good, but mostly busy lettering up some sweet, sweet perhapanauts pages! i don't know if i've actually said this publicly but, while we will be taking advantage of the ON-GOING aspects of the all-new, all-different PERHAPANUTS, this first story line builds to an (i think...) exciting climax in issue five! everything leads to there and i hope you're gonna be surprised!


okay, so i toldja that we had more!

sure, the first issue of the new series hits stands next wednesday! (and, they tell me, is already sold out...! yeah, i don't get that either...)

and sure, we'll be debuting the awesome, cool PERHAPANAUTS T-Shirts at the new york comiccon! (considering the number of people who've 'e'd me to tell me to save one for them, maybe craig and i should give up this comic thing and go into the shirt business...?)

NOW––also BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT!––we present to you...


here's the full set of six--ARISA! BIG! CHOOPIE! KARL! MG! and MOLLY!--crafted for YOU by the talented CRAIG ROUSSEAU, in vibrant trading card color by the esteemed mr. RICO RENZI! here's your chance to collect all six in one fell swoop! gorgeously detailed with character bios on the back––you won't want to miss out! be the first on your block to have a full set! frame them and hang them! flip them or trade them with your friends! give them as gifts! put them in the spokes of your bike!

these trading cards will also be debuted at the new york comiccon and be available here in the perhapanauts store beginning wednesday, april 23rd!

The Choopie card is my favorite, followed closely my MG's.

NYC is looking better and better.

Love the coloring on the Arisa and MG cards. The halftones in Big and Karl's background are a nice tough, too.

Can't wait for next Wednesday.

Oh Yeah!
Those perhapa-cards are major kick @55.
I'll be ordering a set along with my perhapa-shirts.

Did anyone else notice that the 5er were actually a 10er?

** note:(#5)now I know why we have naked squirrels in my neighborhood :)

Warren said...

Will there be any cards left when the Charlotte con rolls around?

craig rousseau said...

thanks, everybody!

after putting out the first one-sheet and the "lost covers" portfolio as limited editions, we decided we'd be better off to make this an open ended run for the 2008 convention season (and a few extra for the website and whatnot), no so fear, we'll have'm in new york, seattle, charlotte, and baltimore!

(and yeah, rico did a bang-up job on these)

The cards are soooo cool. I love how the background colors pick up/compliment their eyes/glasses. Gorgeous!
