Production continues on issue number four; which I hope goes over well when it is eventually published on here. It’s going to be twice the length of a normal issue, which doesn’t really mean anything when issues are released page by page, but still. Meanwhile, issue 5 is written, and issue six is being written as I work on issue 4.
One thing worth mentioning is that I have a lot of references and homages in issue 2, being posted currently. Every issue actually has tons of that, but issue 2 more so than any other so far. If any stalwart young nerds out there think they can spot all my parodies, drop me a line and give it a try! Perhaps some kind of prize can be issued, if someone can actually find them all.
Well, one area of my audience that I can certainly tell is growing is the online scam/automated spam/uncool type of robot demographic. I am daily getting my “to be approved” comment inbox jammed full of all manner of nonsense, some of which I delete outright, others I have decided to discuss here with you today. Here’s one message, left my our good friend NBA Jerseys Wholesale:
“This may be certainly funnily open-handed along with people just like you to give freely precisely what some individuals could possess offered being an e-book for making some money for on their own, certainly considering you could have attempted it in the event you considered required.”
So…. They wanna get me with some kind of E Book scam or something? What language could this have been before Google Translate mangled it into the painful mess it is today? Here’s another, this time from Cheap Jersey Wholesale (Another loyal reader, I’m sure):
““I think it’s just, player safety is the league’s concern,” said Suh. “You’ve got to only respect it and that’s one of the reasons I spoke to Sullivan as we walked into the halftime, and he understood where I was coming from. No hard feelings and same thing if he cut me so forth, so on, no hard feelings and go from there.””
I also get like, eighty of these a day that are just paragraph after paragraph of Asian writing. Who knows what kind of sales I’m missing out on, what with my total ignorance of any and all Asian languages.
For anyone who is keeping up with the most recent page updates, you’ve probably by now seen Captain Sexy, the antagonist for issue 2. Just to further help enrich the experience for you as you read through this issue, I thought I’d share with you the ideal actor to portray the Captain, if I were to ever make Fantastic Crap Comics into a feature film. If you’re familiar with his body of work, I think you’ll agree that he is THE man for the part.
BRIAN BLESSED AS………..
So far, Blessed is the only actor I’ve expressed interest in that is still alive, which is great, since he’s also totally perfect for the role, to the point that I could not contain my enthusiasm were this to every actually happen. It would seriously make my day.
