The big exciting news on my side of this planet is that
my king city book is about to come out as a 12 issue 32 page monthly series
from Image comics and Tokyopop.

I'm thrilled. It's going to be slightly larger than standard comics.
Golden age size.

I want to run a letters collumn I'm putting out in the issues.
It'd be great if any of you fine deviants (it's weird that this site uses that word) would be interested in writing me something I could print in the
back of the issues.

royalboiler@hotmail.com

Thanks.

I put up some more about it all here:
royalboiler.livejournal.com/19…

Aside from that life is good.
It's 4 in the am and I am tired.
Maybe toast in the morning but already that sounds like too much of a plan.

This is actually pretty fucking crazy to hear, because it's like a small miracle that anything related to TP would spawn such awesomeness in conjunction with Image. So major Kudos.

Weirder still though, is that I found out about this first from a random grocer at Trader Joes that I've never talked to. Then Devin sprinkled some more details on me later.

I've got to say this great! And I'm a little jealous. hehehe.

expect a letter and some scribbles. you better do a fanarts section and we get to see some 6 year old girl drawing hot asses or some craziness. pinups might be nice too, but thats too presumptuous on my part

As soon as I have a hilariously awesome letter ready, I'll send it your way. In fact, if the letters column lasts for all 12 issues, I'll send you 12 hilariously awesome letters. But for now, we'll play it by ear.

Oh, is there a deadline for these letters for issue #1?

I fear your words after the Ross quote.
Issue one just has a self serving interview with me in it
but I'll be putting 2 together by the 24th

Letter me!

Fear not, I won't compare King City to Scott Pilgrim or anything like that. That was done for Ross 'cause, well, it was pretty funny. Instead, I'll try to think of some funny question(s) to ask.

Yeah, I'll write something!!! I love your shit.

What kinda stuff do you want? Like how you're the authentic vigilante comic artist, who was creating comics in the trenches since he was an infant?

Glad to see a monthly. You may in fact be the reason I'll start doing monthlies again.

Kudos.

Whatever you feel like is good. Maybe something I can awnser would be good--but it doesnt need to have anything to do with comics. It seems like if Im asking people for letters I should steer away from the ones that just tell me im awesome.--(not that I dont appriciate it.)

I'm excited about monthly, I've been trying to bully more people into getting regular stuff out. I can only keep it up for so long before I have to take a break and catch up on pages.

and thanks.

No worries man. I don't know if I could do a monthly book. Hell, I'm trying to get ONE out, and it's taken me a few years! LOL.

I'll think of something cool to send you. And I'll try not to tell you how awesome you are.

Really I couldn't do a monly book either. I just got a good headstart on this one already.Thats my plan now is scam people into thinking that im fast by drawing all way ahead of time. Comics are so hard. man ,one good one is definatly worth years.

I look forward to your email.

Well, at least it's a way to get KC2. Have you heard anything on whether or not your book is being considered for TP planned Japanese-language printing? I know they're sending MBQ and (I think) DramaCon over there, I should think KC has the sort of quirk that Japanese fans would dig, but perhaps the puns don't translate well...

It's going to france. I havent heard anything about japanese so I would assume not. Maybe if it does well with Image?
shit, that'd be cool.

You told me about the French release a while back, but I'm glad it's still on. Did you ever find out about overseas English distribution (like the UK or Singapore)?

Anything that gets you paid sounds cool by my numbers. Hopefully this Image deal will kick your distribution up better than before and improve that word-of-mouth marketing. You sir, need marketing.

I'd write a letter for the book but It'd likely just be a string of the word 'vagina' repeating into infinity. Vagina.
Reply
:iconroyalboiler:
royalboiler Featured By Owner May 7, 2009
I've always enjoyed a "see you next tuesday"
I'd demand vagina into infinity as a hand writen note.
And maybe it'd even act as some deturent like writing
I will not so and so on a chalk board a million times.

It could backfire though I dont want this to end with anyone sitting in the front row of a one woman show crying.

It might be me.
