Okay, I’m back.
After a small hiatus, during which I spent some weeks visiting my pal Stephen Hawking until one night we got really drunk and I told him his Theory of Everything was sophomoric and naïve and he told me my comic books suck, I am back to my blog.
Big news! After decades of delays and empty promises, I have brought back REX HAVOC AND THE ASS-KICKERS OF THE FANTASTIC in a brand new novel.
It is available on Amazon right now, in easy-to-digest novella form.
Originally I had imagined bringing Rex and the Asskickers back as a comic book, chock full of gorgeous illustrations, but then I read an article somewhere that said placing words and pictures too closely together was actually harmful to readers – something about traumatizing the cones and rods of the eyes with too much information, in many cases causing seizures and brain foolishness.
The article went on to say that the humble novella was the optimal entertainment delivery system, better than comic books and way better than movies, preferably around 168 pages using Garamond typeface with a black and white and red cover, which happens to be the very format of the new REX HAVOC book.
The ASSKICKERS OF THE FANTASTIC is available in paperback right now, and will also be available on Kindle as soon as I can find a nine-year old to show me how to properly format the furshlugginer thing.
I am planning a series of Rex Havoc novellas, and already have the next three planned out. If these books are successful, it is very possible a Rex Havoc comic book will also materialize. Mike Mignola, who I’ve never met and may someday become a great friend of mine, apparently does a lot of pro bono work, and it is possible that he might do the artwork gratis if he knew who the hell I was and was inclined to work on a project he cared nothing about.
So cross your fingers, everyone!
In the meantime, what better way to kick off 2015 than to go to Amazon and buy REX HAVOC AND THE ASSKICKERS OF THE FANTASTIC for everybody on your shopping list, and that includes the creepy guy who lives next door and always mows his lawn without a shirt on. I promise you, after you give him a copy of REX HAVOC, not only will he put a shirt on, but he will put you in his will and you will inherit everything.
Not a bad investment for $7.99, n'est-ce pas?
