Hey, Paul Sizer here, with a request for some assistance from all my watchers on DeviantArt.
My LITTLE WHITE MOUSE series was the first comic series I created solo, and in 2006 I gathered all the issues into a 448 page Omnibus Edition under my own Cafe Digital imprint. I was lucky enough to get it carried by Diamond Distribution, and it's been available for sale ever since.
Last month, my service rep at Diamond offered to re-solicit the LITTLE WHITE MOUSE Omnibus Edition to the direct market, to try and generate some more interest in the book and get it back in the eyes of new fans that have discovered my work in the last few years. Understandably, Diamond wants to see the book do some decent order numbers, and based on that, they will agree to also re-solicit my other books (MOPED ARMY and B.P.M.) in upcoming months.
So, here's the favor I'm asking; if it's within your means, and you like my work, it would be an incredible help for my self-publishing venture to have you place an order for my LITTLE WHITE MOUSE Omnibus Edition through your local comic shop. Ordering through your local store ensures that Diamond sees the numbers come directly from the Direct Market, as opposed to coming through Amazon, etc.
The Diamond Order Code for LWM OMNIBUS EDITION is DEC100959 LITTLE WHITE MOUSE OMNIBUS EDITION
If you bring these numbers into your local store, they can use those codes to order the book immediately. It's an all ages book, so with the holidays coming up, its a great gift for the young (or older) comic reader on your lists!
I'm not asking you to order sight unseen either; you can actually sample the book in its entirety online at WebComics Nation.
Here's a brief synopsis of the series from my website:
In deep space, a young girls survival will depend upon the strength of her heart.
Ten years ago, comic readers met Loo, a 16-year-old girl stranded on an automated satellite in deep space. Her story of coming-of-age in a harsh and unyielding environment became a fan-favorite book around the world. Now, the entire critically-acclaimed LITTLE WHITE MOUSE series is collected into this 448 page Omnibus Edition, including a new 4 page framing story "prequel" by series creator PAUL SIZER, and artistic contributions from artistic legends such as GEOF DARROW (Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot), DAVE JOHNSON (100 Bullets), LADRONN (Hip Flask), CHRIS SPROUSE (Tom Strong), JEFF MOY AND W.C. CARANI (Legion of Super Heroes), MARK CRILLEY (Akiko), MARK PAULIK (Chumba webcomic), MATT FEAZELL (Cynicalman), KARL ALTSTAETTER (Deity), JANE IRWIN (Vogelein), PAM BLISS (Paradise Valley Comics), and many others, this is the definitve collection for long-time fans and first time readers.
Thanks much for your help in advance. I know the economy is hard for everyone, but the community and support that exists on DeviantArt has emboldened me to make this request to you all.
Paul S. Sizer... the "S" stands for "Quality"!
Still here, just working...
Wow, 2019 is almost over! Thanks for all the good words on my work over the last year; I've been kicking ass and trying to work with cooler and cooler clients, and hopefully my work still gets people activated and excited. 2020 is going to be an interesting year, so make sure you use your art for the powers of good, boost the signals of those who need a louder voice, and remember that serving others with your art is the most noble of pursuits. Carry On, and Stay Deviant! Paul
Long Live The King
Today would have been Jack "King" Kirby's 100th birthday, and his contribution to the comic medium is immeasurable. He helped to re-define how comics visually work, and is the cornerstone to some of the most enduring comic characters in history. If you've ever read a comic book or seen a comic movie, or drawn or created your own comic, you owe something to the power of Kirby's creative genius. We are all in debt to what he gave us for decades, and he raised the bar for what comics can do.

New Projects coming soon...
Lots of work has been done since my last post this fall, and I've been able to take a step back and see where I want to focus my energy. As always, I want my work to support justice, equality and equity, to serve the greater good, and to oppose short sighted agendas and entitled thinking. As I'm able in the next few weeks, I'll be uploading a lot of new, cool work that will be available for sale and in support of good causes that further a better country and better world. As always, an artist must choose where their work is best used, and make art that speaks to a greater audience and greater ideal. I hope you'll find my upcoming work to se
My local comic book shop is notoriously untrustworthy when it comes to ordering books. Still, I've been meaning to read it, so I guess I'll look for other ways to get my hands on a physical copy of it.
I went to the WebComics Nation site to check the title out, since I had never heard of it before. Wow! I just realized I was already finishing the "dog" chapter when I decided to stop reading! I just wish I could go thru a local comics shop. But Green Dragon in Escanaba shut down back in early summer and anything I buy now is online. I'll have to see if Book World in the mall will be able to order it this way.
