"You know Cerebus wouldn't be a bit surprised?"

Hi, Everybody!

So, what's going on?

Well, the Remastered Spawn #10 Kickstarter is $1,866 dollars away from matching the Kickstarter for the Remastered Cerebus #1, with 274 LESS backers, and twenty-six days to go. Speaking of the Remastered Cerebus #1, limited overstock is still available at, of the book and the goodies.

You can order HERMANN #1! (The NEW CiH?), and on the last Wednesday of the month (the 28th), pick up the Vault of Cerebus, And when you're there, you can buy Batvark: PENIS (in stores NOW! (Possibly along with the "Censored For Grandma" Variant, Batvark: XXXXX.).) If you're in the market for a "Virgin" Batvark: Penis (limited to ONLY 253 copies!), you need to track down Benjamin Hobbs and pester him until he throws one at you...(hopefully, he had it slabbed by CGC first so it doesn't loose any of it's value...'course then it'll hurt more when it hits you...) And, signed copies of Vark Wars: Walt's Empire Strikes Back (Signed by Dave, Signed by Dave and me, Signed by me after I scribble out Dave's name, Pretty much available Signed only...). 

As you all know, Wilf Jenkins was the Aardvark/Vanaheim lawyer for years, and during that time he was on the comp list. Wilf saved all his copies. Dave and Wilf have signed them, and there's a certificate of authenticity. The books will be available from Looking For Heroes, for $10 (CAD) plus $4 dollars shipping to Canada and $5 dollars shipping to the USA. All the money goes to the Food Bank of the Waterloo Region.

And another You Don't Know Jack Update:
Hello backers!

This is just a quick note to let you know that MOST (not all-- see below!) packages have been shipped, and have been confirmed to arrive as far-flung as the UK (Thanks, Richard!). If YOUR package has shipped, you will have received an email from us with your tracking number and shipping information. (Thanks,!).

There are however, a few (approximately 30) boxes that have not yet shipped!

CATEGORY A-- about fifteen shipments are awaiting a single replacement book! One of our boxes of Hermitage Awesomes books was waylaid, but has at long last made its way to its destination, Carson's House of Shipping in Alabama. These fifteen shipments will go out tomorrow, so look for your tracking info then!

Our apologies if you're one of the fifteen pledgers impacted by this. We really appreciate your support, and hope that you'll be holding your books in your hands very soon! Domestic shipping has been surprisingly fast so far, so that could be as soon as Saturday for some of you.

CATEGORY B-- about fifteen other backers STILL haven't filled out their survey, or sent us their address. Please please pretty please, fill out your survey!

Lastly, I wanted to let you know this is likely our next-to-last update for this project! The very next update will contain your FREEBIE GOODIE DIGITAL DOWNLOADS. And following that, targeted downloads will be sent to the groups of you who pledged for additional digital rewards.

We wanted to wait until everyone had a chance to see these books in print, as they were designed to be seen, before you peeped at them on a screen.

Carson and I have been discussing different possible follow-up projects to this, including the Big One-- a completed(ish) Strange Death of Alex Raymond! That's right, the 500-pound gorilla is on the horizon. More on this as soon as we have more info for you!

All the best,


And then, THIS. Then:

Next Time: If Oliver's not back from his trip, I gotta find something...

Dave kept getting better at drawing rain...he'd gotten pretty good at it by this issue, I think.

I own the first page in this wonderful sequence. Sim was offering pages for $40 (which was a lot for me at the time!) and I just loved the storytelling...and the rain.
