First, a comic!



MY STUPID LIFE


Second, big book news!



The contracts are signed, everything's in motion, the wait is nearly OVER! Ladies and gentlemen, as of today, you can now officially expect the long-awaited Nothing Nice to Say book to hit stores around September! The book will be published by none other than indie comic juggernauts Dark Horse Comics (a bit of info I have been keeping secret for so long now it's starting to hurt when I walk).

To answer some anticipated questions:

1) Yes, I still own the comics and the characters and everything. NN2S is not owned by Dark Horse, they're just kind enough to put out the book.

2) If all goes according to plan (and I see no reason why it shouldn't), the book should be available in record stores as well as comic shops and, of course, online on Amazon and stuff.

3) The book will contain just about every NN2S strip from 2005-2006, as well as about fifty pages of bonus comics including my month-long stint writing and illustrating Joe and Monkey at the end of 2004, a good dozen or so guest strips, some original art, and more.

4) Yes, the comics from the book will still be available to read online for free always and forever.

So hooray! Three cheers for Dark Horse for being badass and putting my book out! This is an exciting time for me, guys. This is the kind of thing you go out and celebrate at a fancy steak restaurant. Which I would totally do if I weren't still hopelessly poor. So frozen pizza's gonna have to do for now. Which, let's be fair, is just as good.

Dark Horse are fucking awful for getting stuff to the UK in my experience. I think I still have a Penny Arcade book on order from them from September last year.
Then again, because it's Dark Horse, it'll possibly be on Amazon. So yay yay yay.

There are four punk rock in-jokes hidden in the cover. Two visible in the web version here, two of which can probably only be seen in person. You caught one...

That is so awesome! I can't wait to get the book! ^_^

Really like the new comic, too. Hilarious. Did you actually see that sign somewhere? Because that would be awesome and somewhat disturbing at the same time.

I made the sign up. I always think those "EMPLOYEES MUST WASH HANDS" signs are funny because you know they're not even for the workers to remember to be clean, they're for the customers to see and get a mental image of the workers being clean. Anyone who thinks every assembly worker at every McDonald's is washing their hands between taking a poop break and handling their Big Mac is crazy. It's like the airplane safety scene from Fight Club. The illusion of security always amuses me.

I do still plan on putting out a zine of Russian strips, but it'll have to wait for right now, I really am totally broke.

Fucking sweet. That book will be MINE. A copy of it, at least. And my money will be YOURS. A modest sum of it, one hopes.

Congratulations Mitch! Looking forward to buying it :)

Incidentally, really enjoying MSL. I hope the NN2S book does really well and you can publish your other comics in print as well!

Congratulations for the book Mitch. This is too much awesomeness!

Those $1 frozen pizzas they sell at HEB are great by they way. I eat one of those for every special ocasion.

Congratulations to you, and congrats to me I WANT IT NOW. In fact I'll get a few copies and distribute them to people I've been trying to force to read the strip for some time now :)

Well, at least it's not on Marvel or DC, cause then you would be a sellout. As it is, you're with comic Epitaph, which is sort of okay, I guess, but it's pushing it.

I'm just breaking balls here, it's great news. Next step, a NN2S cartoon? Then I can brag about how I was a fan back when it was just a comic strip and tell people how much better your old stuff was.

so does this mean you'll be visiting the Dark Horse HQ in my hometown of Milwaukie, Oregon? if so I totally got some recommended sights in the area (ranging from a pawn shop shaped like a boat to the Super Burrito Xpress)
