Here,...buy this. I will make you COOL (black) just like me.
I've Googled the solicitation of the trade paperback collection of Vertigos' "Hellblazer:Papa Midnight". It should be on the shelves shortly. You should go buy it. You should buy it because, unknown to me, the series (which was written by Mat Johnson,"Bounce","Hunting In Harlem") was "critically acclaimed". Which is code for underexposed, undersold but worth a read. I'd buy it. Buy it and I'll keep drawing comics...how's that? I'd like a nice royalty check. Pay some taxes, pay some bills. Maybe buy a faster computer so I can draw using my wacom. You know, buy a couple of copies and spread the love, give the book to a friend. Say, "This is amazing. I wept." or something. Read it on the bus, or in the park. There's black folk (Negroes) in the book. Hell, it's FULL of Negroes. All kinds; Nubians, Ashanti, Ghanan...even a triflin' negro or two. I drew my black ass OFF making this bitch. Just BUY the damn thing,yo? Dag....
