PostPosted: Wed Oct 04, 2006 4:27 pm    Post subject: Buy my comic book! Reply with quote

As some of you may know, I published a comic book. Having been heretofore unavailble to anyone outside my general area, I've only posted snippets about it. Now, however, thanks to the god known as PayPal, City of Daemons can finally reach as many corners of the globe as money will alow.

Here's a link: http://www.sscomics.net
Or skip right to the buying: http://www.sscomics.net/shop.html

Now, I know what you're thinking: wait, that website mentions a shipping charge of $4.00, and the book itself is already $4.00...what kind of crap are you trying to pull?!

No crap, my friends...we're simply trying to break even on the shipping costs so that we can continue shipping and clean the remaining books out of my closet. And what do you get for that crazy $8 price? The specs from the site don't lie when they say "32 pages, printed on 80lb. Sterling Ultra Digital Gloss, no ads, full color." Worth the 4 bucks by itself, but, for a limited time, we're giving away some promo DVDs to accompany the book for no extra cost.

And what, pray tell, is this thing about, you ask? If you followed the link above, you can check the Synopsis page. If not, then I shall post it here:

City of Daemons wrote:
Sirus was once a great hero of his city. His days of heroism ended when his friend marshalled the local law enforcement against him. Now, having escaped from the asylum he was locked away in, Sirus finds himself shunned by the very city he had sworn to procect. The fallen hero’s scattered memory and hostile surroundings have left him feeling confused and dejected. And also quite insane.

Yet there can be no rest for Sirus. His old friend now controlls the city through fear, but that is not the least of the city’s problems. There are far worse things on the horizon – things could well destroy the city, things that no one can stop. No one except an insane amnesiac who would like nothing to do with saving anything, of course.

City of Daemons follows Sirus’ steadily degrading mental state as events push him on towards glory. Will this unlikely champion be able to pull himself back from the brink of insanity in time to save the city that has cast him aside?


So please, please, please (infinity with ice cream and a cherry on top) show the Sponge some love!

These guys sent me an invite to go to their con, but I won't be able to make it. I figure that would be a good place to pimp your comic since its in PA.


And I'm going to order that comic once I gets my paycheck. It better have an Evil Sponge hidden in some dark corner of the art.

Hey! You can mail it to me, and I promise to hand deliver it you in Cali at some future unspecified date....

Or I could just buy my own, huh?

It is a good comic I loved it.

That you could. Speaking of you being within driving distance, I have a week off coming up. Wanna save 50% on a comic book?

Hey, so, I just got us into a local Con. I know there's not a lot of people that can make it to the Harrisburg, PA, area, but I just wanted to post this and continue being a spamming pimp.

October 22, at the Harrisburg Holiday Inn

Small-ish con, apparently, but I figure it's as good a place as any to try and sell some stuff. Plus, we're local...and pretty much right down the street from the event...so it will spread the word in our area a little faster. Anyone that wants to stop by, please do. I have extra couches

I also have a cloning device. But that's highly classified, so don't tell anyone.

I'm disturbed by the misspelling.


I just started a new jobby here, Sponge, so I don't know what that weekend is going to look like. There is also the minor annoyance of, while I do own a car, no longer having a liscense. I might be able to ride the rails out there, though. I'm looking into it.

Not that it's any of my buisness whatsoever, but I have to ask, what did you get it taken away for?

My eyesight. I can't pass the vision exam required to drive in California anymore, so my eye doctor had my license suspended. At first he was cool about it, just said I shouldn't drive, but after two years he realized I was still driving myself to my appointments (I see an eye doc, or should, three times a year), and called whatever number doctors call to revoke the driving priviledges of their unruly patients.

I know this might sound a little silly Couch, but have you tried glasses?

Yeah, it's a whole big long story. Basically my eyesight isn't correctable to the degree required to drive in the US (20/40) without surgery, which (A) I can't afford since insurance won't cover it, (B) wouldn't be permanent, so I'd have to get it again in a few years, and (C) I don't qualify as a candidate for since my eyesight hasn't been stable for a period of 12 months and my right eye has trauma damage.
There's alot more to all of this, both concerning my eyes and my visual cortex (which may or may not be damaged), but it's rather boring to anyone but me.

Looking at the sample pages, I'm as impressed, as I am in love with your layout style. Also, the photo-real background is intriguing.
I might give it a look when I have some time on my hands. I've got so many things going on right now.
