March 25, 2004
LESS THAN HEROES UPDATES!
ON SCHEDULE FOR JUNE!
Production on LESS THAN HEREOS is complete. The book is on schedule to ship in June from TOP SHELF PRODUCTIONS. the collection features the first four issues of THRESHOLD, with artwork that has been revamped and heavily updated by yours truly. In addition, you'll see an all-new introduction based on "The Walking Tour," but it's been completely rescripted and redrawn. There's also an 8-page solo story starring Mr. Malevolence with new script edits and newly updated art! I've created new end papers and spot illos for the book; I've expanded and (with assistance from my editor, Dianne Pearce) throughly revised my essay on hereos and aging. But wait, there's more! Matt Wagner and Dean Haspiel have both contributed oustanding pin-ups exclusively for this collection. I'm simultaneously blown away and humbled by just how cool these amazing artists rendered the LTH cast! The collection, originally listed at 128 pages, is now a full 152 pages. To preorder, be sure to visit Top Shelf and then kick back and have a few snacks.

JOHN KERRY AND LESS THAN HEROES!
If you've had enough political corrpution, lies, war, and blatent disregard for your civil rights, then it's time to start working to get baby Bush and his zombie squad out of The White House in 2004. This is no longer a question of whether you are a Democrat or a Republican. It is a question of good leadership, and the current leader, as his record has shown, just ain't the man for the job. Dont' worry, the Bush years will be remembered for a long time. After all, we'll all be paying for his $5.2 trillion defecit for decades to come. Support John Kerry and let's put an end to Bush and his reign of deceit and terror. To learn more about Kerry and his plans, click on the link above. It's easy, just put down the comic book, click, and read. This year, cast your vote for John Kerry and for LESS THAN HEROES! Nuff said!
