In which I totally plug this Wander comic by some pals of mine.

§ July 17th, 2012 § Filed under pal plugging § 4 Comments

Hey. Longtime internet pals Kevin Church and Josh Krach, along with artist Grace Allison, have a brand new digital comic coming out today from MonkeyBrain Comics:

You should be able to buy your copy of the first issue of Wander: Olive Hopkins and the Ninth Kingdom starting at some point today just by clicking on that title or on the pic above.

There is also an accompanying Tumblr site featuring news and production art, as well as this introductory preview. It’s only $1.99, so go buy it already.

Another pal of mine, Mark Hale, co-creator of Fake AP Stylebook and co-editor of our book, Write More Good, could use a hand…if you’re in a position to do so, please read his plea and see if there’s anything you can do. Thanks, friends.

    No sale. Church, in addition to being reductive (and that’s putting it kindly) in his comics writing (the man never met a Moore or Ellis concept he didn’t lift whole cloth) is smug and condescending to commenters on his site. Pass on that guy.

    Hale, on the other hand, I would love to help out…. Poor guy.

    What did Kevin steal from Moore or Ellis, out of curiosity? I’ve read all of Kevin’s work and don’t see the similarities…unless you think his protagonist Sam Kimimura owes more to Ellis and not, say, the entirety of detective fiction.

    Admittedly, Kevin does share with Moore and Ellis an impatience for other people’s bullshit, which is probably the “smugness” and “condescension” you’re talking about.

    Let’s see… having entire scenes written in Korean, with no translation, because Moore did it in LXG. And when a reader asked for a translation, Church replied, in toto, “no.” (That’s not smug? Come on.) That British female character from Fight! who is basically Elsa Bloodstone. There are lots of other examples, but I’m not going to convince you. That’s okay. I know he’s a great friend of yours, and that’s fine. But it’s not just me who thinks his on-line persona is condescending and off-putting.

    So that’s your evidence. …You were right, I wasn’t convinced.

    Aaaand I’m done with comments on this post.
