Chapter 98: A Valentine's gift for you! You have to pay for it though!
Stuff for sale!
People saying nice stuff!
RIP a legend!
Hello and happy Valentine’s Day if that’s something you care about. If not, happy Tuesday.
A very nice reader pointed out to me that I didn’t share what books I had coming out this month. So I will fix that now, mid-month.
Getting back to Valentine’s day, I don’t want you to think that we here at APHQ aren’t thinking of you today. Because we are. Too much. And while I can’t physically mail all of you chocolates (I mean, I could but I don’t want to) what I can do is offer you a nice deal on anything from our webstore while we get ready to add a bunch of cool new stuff.
For the next day only we’re having a Valentine’s Day sale in the store for you loyal newsletter subscribers. Everything is 50% off with the code at checkout: StrangersLoveYou23
You can pick up exclusive and rare covers for WHAT’S THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE?, the limited edition collection, plus other stuff Tyler and I have made like 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK, WE CAN NEVER GO HOME, DEAD DOG’S BITE, DC VS VAMPIRES, BATMAN URBAN LEGENDS, and more. And I just found a few copies of the collection of the Wu-Tang Clan I made 12 REASONS TO DIE. It’s got great art from folks like Nate Powell, Ron Wimberly, Joelle Jones, Riley Rossmo, Toby Cypress, and more. So grab those before they’re gone because I’m not sure if I’ll ever get more. So get yourself a nice Valentine’s Day gift. You deserve it.
I was also going to post about how the great Modern Mythology were having a sale on some of Tyler’s original art… But it all sold out in like an hour. So ignore that. Or go get some fun stuff by people like Tom Reilly, Josh Hixson, and Phil Jimenez.
But I don’t want you to totally miss out on owning some original Tyler Boss art so I will share this little nugget of info. I will post more info as soon as it’s public.
In the world of people saying nice things about us, it was pointed out to me that the wonderful folks at CBR put WHAT’S THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE? on their list of “Best Current Indie Comics.” It’s a fun list that shows off the amazing range of fun comics currently on stands. There’s sci-fi,
romance, horror, comedy, superhero, westerns… So, yeah. There are some genres not currently represented in mainstream comics. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of awesome stuff on shelves. Give the list a read and maybe try some new stuff.
I also meant to share this before but didn’t seem to for some reason. The excellent new Substack THE COMICS DIARY has a nice little newsletter about our book. Give it a read and throw them a follow if you feel so inclined.
I was going to post a romantic song today but I’m just thinking about Trugoy. Rest in Power.
That’s it for now.
Stay safe. Take care of each other. Buy chocolate tomorrow. It’s cheaper.
Oh man i would love a Boss commission!! That is so awesome!!
I have a stupid request:
Since the Supple Boiz are on the pods and clearly in your life, and since they are learning about becoming comic book creators, could you do occasional posts or pods about “comic creation 101”?
Not just the creative stuff, but the practical stuff that you wish you knew before getting into creator-owned comics?
Thank you for your work!
