Hello Everyone

I would like to start out by thanking everyone who’s been supporting the Oswald Chronicles and Tall Tails. Also please vote for both books on it does help 🙂

Now on to my concern, I have a problem, a compulsion some may say to consistently order my monthly fix of trade paperbacks and hard covers from Previews. It’s strange because I get my monthly order in one shot and for the last few months I’ve been questioning my ordering habits with an eye to cutting down how many books I order in a month. The main reason for that is because I don’t have time to read them all. Now mind you I spend about an hour to an hour and half every night reading anywhere from 100 – 200 pages and I still can’t keep up. What’s even worse is that I feel like I’m doing a disservice to myself and the creators of these fine works (for the most part) by not giving myself the time to really peruse the art and mull the stories being dished out to me. The other issue I have is that I have so many comics to read I haven’t read a prose book in well over 11 months and this is a disconcerting to a guy who at one time read a book every few days for years, but between television, films, my own writing the internet, that godforsaken thing I do daily called the day job (it’s really not that bad I’m being overly dramatic:), and the internet, I have very little time left to just kick back and read the way I once did. There are also several new projects that I’m looking to launch early next year that will put an even further squeeze on my time will most certainly cause me to curtail my purchasing and it’s a shame really because there are more quality books being produced now than I think I’ve ever seen in comics, but what can one do there’s only so much time that can be dedicated to any one thing. Well maybe I can just start saving my money and do that one crazy wild thing I’ve always wanted to do and commission Arthur Adams to do an Oswald cover for me now that would be something 🙂 What would you do?

This set is from my latest order 19 books 😀


Some good news is that we just received a proof of the Tall Tails hardcover brick that holds all 20 issues of the first story arc. We’re looking to hold a KS campaign next year to produce more of these.


Once again if you can please vote for The Oswald Chronicles and Tall Tails on

Thank you for your time.
