I looove calling back old jokes. haha!

Many of the articles I read about the book cited the Gorey/Nancy book cover business as the best work I do, which I am uncertain how to take (artists! amirite) but hey, if it's your favorite it's your favorite right? I think that the really good thing about them is that they don't need nor are made better by any previous knowledge of anything else coming in, so everyone reads them the same way. I like that! History and comic book things are fun but it's nice for everyone to be on the same page too.


A Halifax illustrator friend of mine, Sydney Smith, finally made himself a thing on the internet so add that on to your tumblrs and et ceteras.

My pal Lizz Lunney has a new book, it's right here, she's a mini comics star but if you ain't heard of her because of her being all the way over in Britain, I forgive ya. That situation is easily repaired by simply clicking links! Isn't the internet grand?

The store has three new shirts! It's been a while. But here they are!

The book is still available for order on Amazon!

Other buying options for the book? Topatoco is selling it, along with a reissue of the first book! There is a pretty good combo deal there.
