First off, you should be reading EXTERMINATORS. It's the "Lost Vertigo" title that has slipped under everyone's radar. It's about guys who kill bugs and critters, weird chemicals, black humor, species extinction, and ominous portents for the future, as the latest pesticide that the Bug-Bee-Gone™ boys are using on cockroaches isn't having the desired effect... or is it?
Now. Why is this the Greatest Comic Book Ever? Well, that would be because yours truly is in it. That's right, I finally hit the Big Time! I am a background character in this issue of EXTERMINATORS because Mike Hawthorne (that incredible artist and supreme talent) put me in a couple of panels. You will believe a man can fill a background! Here's how it all started:
ME: "How come you never see people with BIRTHMARKS in comics? That's ANTI-BIRTHMARK bigotry!"
MIKE HAWTHORNE: (stunned silence)
ME: "It's completely unfair! Not all of us are unblemished!"
MIKE HAWTHORNE: "All right, all right, shut up already, I'll see what I can do. Just stop. You sound like an idiot and you're scaring the kids."
ME: "Cool beans!"
So reserve your copy today! That's EXTERMINATORS #11 written by Simon Oliver, with art by Mike Hawthorne and Cover by Philip Bond, featuring the FIRST APPEARANCE OF WILLIAM CHARLES WAHL!
*Phew* I'm all tingly here!
UPDATE: Mike Hawthorne saw this post and helpfully points out
