BOASAS + COMICS.COM
big news everybody!
last week i agreed to a web syndication deal with United Media.
here's the details:
- on april 25th boasas will begin appearing every monday, wednesday and friday on comics.com at this address.
- it will be in a NEW, newspaper friendly size.
- i will still publish the comics at regular old boasas.com, but with a delay of a few days. comics.com gets first dibs.
that's pretty much it, but i'll back up and tell you how it happened.
basically, i was recruited by ted rall. ted is the head of acquisitions and development at Unitied Media (UM). ted is also a a prolific cartoonist, author and columnist. the guy stays busy. you should google him.
i first met ted through my involvement in his compilation book "Attitude 3: The New Subversive Online Cartoonists". this is how i know he cares about comics and respects cartoonists of all kind.
for this reason, it was very easy for me to work with him and UM.
not to mention this is an great way to expose boasas to a wider audience and, who knows, maybe they'll offer me a "real" syndication deal in a year. or maybe they won't. you can't predict this sort of thing.
one thing i can predict is that i'll be drawing comics for many years to come.
anyway, i hope you'll migrate your eyeballs over to comics.com on the 25th. and if you feel the urge, tell your friends about boasas. you could even mention boasas on your blog or party line. the more people reading boasas on comics.com the better (FOR ME).
i only ask one thing...
that is- long-time readers will overlook any "re-runs" in the first few weeks on comics.com. i was a little nervous about the new dimensions. "re-imagining" ideas from the archive allowed me to wade into the water slowly. also, it allowed me to publish some classics to get new readers up to speed. personally, i love the new size. i hope you do too.
comment or e-mail me if you have any questions.
