It is happening:

Okay this is going to take some getting used to. Please bear with me. I’m going to be repeating a lot of stuff since the idea is to get the word out about glamourpuss. Particularly at this point, what I’m hoping to do is to persuade people to go into their local store mid-month when each of the stores should have a copy of glamourpuss No.1 that will be included with Diamond Dateline (Feb. 13). There are roughly 300 stores that should have an advance copy right now. I built my own Canadian mailing list from all of the stores listed in the various Yellow Pages at the Kitchener Library (about 80 directories) and then used the Fantagraphics “Brick & Mortar” list from the back of their catalogue from a few years back for international and US stores. It’s a good list, considering it’s a few years old. Good range of stores from specialty book stores to primarily super-hero stores.


Dave answers questions about lettering, whether he fears death, Glamourpuss and his views on Japanese porn comics before the store where he’s using the computer closes and he’s forced to pack it in for the day.

More tomorrow!

    God, I hope so. He’s not just a nut about one religion, he’s a nut about three
    (Judaism, Christianity and Islam). I hope he’s coming back to reality, but I have my doubts. Too bad. I miss the old days of early Cerebus.

  4. Ceaser says:

    The discussion is really sane. Wow.

  5. Brian Spence:”God, I hope so. He’s not just a nut about one religion, he’s a nut about three (Judaism, Christianity and Islam). I hope he’s coming back to reality, but I have my doubts.”

    Yes, God forbid someone reconciles (in his mind at least) the belief systems of the world’s three major warring religions. The only proper position is complete disbelief, I suppose?

    I don’t see eye-to-eye with Dave on half of what he thinks, but I wouldn’t brand him a nut. He certainly doesn’t act like a fanatic. Judging from his very calm and reasonable demeanor during the “God vs Spirituality” panel at 2003′s S.P.A.C.E, he can easily take down most of his critics without breaking a mental sweat.
