Mitch Clem versus the Establishment
|The first Nothing Nice to Say book is out NOW!
||[Sep. 25th, 2008|04:01 am]
Nothing Nice to Say by Mitch Clem. How about that. This book collects all the NN2S comics from 2006 through 2007 (the first two years that the comic was in black and white). There is also tons of bonus material, including the month's worth of Joe and Monkey I did at the end of 2005 that led to me resurrecting NN2S from the dead in the first place, several guest strips, some crossovers, an intro featuring several redrawn strips from the REALLY old stuff, and a bunch of original art. Also candy.
black and white, 128 pages, 7"x7", $9.95
TITLE: Nothing Nice to Say
AUTHOR: Mitch Clem
PUBLISHER: Dark Horse
There are several ways to get your hands on a copy of this book:
1) Ask your local book store or comic shop if they have it, or if they can order it for you. It's distributed by Diamond, who distro pretty much every comic book that gets made, so anyone should be able to get it for you, be they an independent comic book store or a Barnes & Noble.
Odds are you'll probably have to call ahead and order it, though. I've heard from lots of people that they went into whatever book store and the one copy the store had ordered sold right away, if they ever had one in the first place. The fact is, no one knows who I am, no one's ever heard of my comic, bookstores seem unwilling to take a risk on my book, and so not a lot of people are keeping it in stock at this time. That said, CALL AHEAD, ask if they have it, if they don't, ask them to order it for you. That never takes longer than a couple days. I'm really sorry that you should have to put in any extra effort to buy this book, but I very much appreciate you doing so. Maybe if we sell enough copies, stores will start carrying it without being told.
2) You can order it online from the Official Mitch Clem Store (along with all kinds of shirts and paraphernalia, the proceeds of which go to feed starving cartoonists).
3) You can order it online from any number of other stores:
- Barnes & Noble
- Amazon Canada
- Amazon UK
I have a copy here, and, I have to say, it's really exciting to see this thing in actual print. These comics look considerably nicer on paper, the way they should be seen, rather than on a computer monitor. Plus now you have something to leave on your coffee table and, when you bring a date home, they'll see it and know you're cultured and you'll get some action GUARANTEED.
NOTE: Some stores are listing this book as hardcover. There is no hardcover edition of this book, it is available in softcover only. There should be no pricing difference, I think this is just an oversight on part of some stores and shouldn't be anything to warrant concern.
And, on a personal note, thanks for all your support over the years helping me get this comic to where it is today, in glorious print. This has been my dream since I was a kid. My comics are everything to me, and your support is what makes this all possible. So thank you.
Now get orderin'!
can't wait for it to show up at my door
Nice one Mitch. I get paid tomorrow, so I'm getting one right after that.
Orders from your online store still ship 10/8, right?
I'm so incredibly stoked for this book. As one of my favorite comics, it'll be great to have it on my shelf :D

Orders from my store are shipping either this week or early next week.
I guess I was too late to rip you off by Xeroxing this and handing it out freely. :(
I go into work at Borders tomorrow, so I'm totally gonna order it first thing. YAY!

Booya! Been wanting a copy of this since you first said you were working on it. Do you happen to know the Diamond order code for it?
I don't, I only know the ISBNs.
I'm going to the comic book shop today to see if they got it in! (I had them pre-order it a few months back)
Congratulations! It's always exciting seeing the little people get published.
Who you callin' little, chump.
If I don't get instant gratification from the opposite sex, I'm burning the book.
speaking of lazy webmasters, /your/ site still lists it as pre-order
when was it no longer pre-order then? Shit, I wanted those buttons and am skurred mine wasn't actually a "pre-order" since I purchased it from the site on Monday.
I just got laid because of your book! Thank you Mitch Clem!
I ordered it yesterday, along with some more swag... SWAG!
This is actually the first comic I've bought in years ($0.50 comics at a yard sale don't count)! I've been iching to get back into em and this seemed perfect.
The Walking Dead is an amazing cure to that itch.
i went to order it, but it was going to cost $9.95 plus $13.10 postage to Australia :(
I want it, but the postage is a killer.
Yeah, I don't know where to go to order books to Australia without paying a ton of shipping. The ISBN-13 code I posted is international, though, so maybe try bringing that to a bookstore and see what they can do for you.
Amazon shipped it yesterday.. I'm really excited for the book.
The cover is frickin' gorgeous in real life.
I'm definately gonna snag this. Congrats on the print Mitch!
good thing my mom has no idea about what i actually like. she usually starts her christmas shopping in august, so she'd usually have my gift by september/october. However, I can buy this without having worry about getting another copy since she has been out of touch as to what i enjoy since middle school( 3rd year in college now). Or if by some chance i get another copy, there is nothing wrong with re-gifting some mitch clem. amirite?
I would tell your mom to get you Amazon credit or something. My mom now just gives me x amount of money (i'm 23.. just finishing my associates.. yeah go figure but we're around the same age) Or she asks me specifically what I want.
Everyone should buy 2.. and give one to someone who has never heard of NN2S.
Hello Mitch, I really want this book but I'm from Caracas.. as in Venezuela.. as in really fucking far away, is it only available on the US and Australia? How can I get my hands on one mitchelicious book of those?
Hm, I don't know what kinds of bookstores Venezuela has, but I recommend writing down the ISBN-13 number at the top of this page and calling around to see if the stores around you can order it.
Added it to the list. I think I'm doing a guest blog for their site next month, I gotta think of something to write about.
Dude, some guy has this website where he leaked all the strips from the book, you might wanna check into that.
Oh man, I have totally been waiting for this. I actually work in a TFAW here in Portland so hopefully when I go into work today there will be a stack of shiny, beautiful NN2S books that I can squirrel away for meself. Congrats! You should be suoer hella proud :D I am going to put it on my recommendation shelf and pimp it like it's hot.
Thank you very much! The covers are only partially shiny, but it is a wonder to behold nonetheless.
I got mine yesterday, I hope I didn't creep on the girl at the counter too much.
Working in a comic store, I'm sure she never gets guys like that, anyway.
Also, looks _AMAZING_, too bad I'd already read most of it.
I can't wait to get laid cause of this book! EXCITEMENT
