BATVARK PENIS promo (Dave's Weekly Update #344)

Hi, Everybody!

Because it's all any of you care about: Strange Death of Alex Raymond Update:
Thanks for the continued interest in SDAOR. Dave has decided to cease working on and trying to publish the book. But, he has given me permission to publish what is completed so far on my own terms.
I am currently submitting SDOAR to established publishers in hopes to avoid any more crowd-funding efforts. The fans got burned far too badly through those means for me to be comfortable turning right back to them. This needs to be very simple from here on out; a release date through an established publisher, go to a store, or Amazon, and buy the book.
I will let everyone know if and when a publisher picks us up. If I get rejected by everyone then we will return to the crowd-funding option.
In the mean time, if anyone has contacts with a legitimate publisher and thinks they can help get SDAOR signed, please put me in contact.
Also, Sean Robinson and I have decided to do some light revisions on YDKJ and offer it as a single, 48 page staple-bound book directly to the fans through crowdfunding. When we get the details for the campaign put together you will all be the first to know.
Thanks again,
Carson Grubaugh
(Edit from Carson: Please do not reach out to Fantagraphics or IDW. Neither publisher is interested nor do they want to hear anything about Dave Sim. Trust me.)

Everybody okay with that? Or at least is that acceptable to everybody?

Good, 'cause heeeeeere's

Are we eventually going to hear about how this feminism's fault? I bet we are.

I wish I knew the deets. Seems juicy. But this is turning my stomach right now. Oh boy. Frustrating.

Would Drawn & Quarterly publish this book?

It's the best graphic novel publisher in the world.

Sadly, Fantagraphics, Drawn and Quarterly and IDW have already passed. All for great reasons.
