Promote it like mad! [Dec. 5th, 2005|11:01 am]
[Current Mood |geekygeeky]

Next Monday, December 12. Talk like Brian Michael Bendis Day.

Those of you who know Bendis will understand. You will get this. Completely.

Those of you who don't, well, you need to. Really.

Go to your local comic shop. The one just down the street. You pass it daily. You never think about it.

Step through the door this time. Smile at the geek behind the counter. Nod. Then head for the Graphic Novels section. These are comic books that have been gathered into bound volumes. Compilations. Repeats. This makes it easy. Pick up any Ultimate Spiderman. In fact, pick them all up. They're good.

Really good.

Read. A few pages. It may take a few pages to understand. But you will understand.

Now buy a comic. Support this industry. And tell the guy behind the counter about Talk Like Brian Michael Bendis Day. He'll be amused. Trust me on this. Totally amused.

Spread the word.

I haven't bought a comic book since I was ten. Suppose this would be a good time to look one up.

Oh, as per our arrangement, Mrs. Ferrett, I'd like to know your thoughts on this powerful piece of writing of mine.

Other than Peanuts, The Far Side, Garfield, and Calvin and Hobbes, I can think of no other American comic I've seen in any bookstores here in Taiwan.

And other than those four comics, I've never read any other from America.
