About this project
SAD-BOY COMIX AND STORIES - For Mature Readers.
It's the alternative comics genre everybody loves to hate: sad-sack male autobiographical cartoons. Sad-Boy is the star of this 'zine, alone in his room with his artistic principles and his pen and paper. And his action figures. And his VHS tapes. And his copies of Yummy Fur and Palookaville. The best advice for writers has always been, "write what you know", and this issue delivers. Loneliness! Why don't girls like "Nice Guys"? Cross-hatching!
Read comics about Sad-Boys adventures on e-Bay, first dates, and his experiences tabling at SPX (the Small Press Expo), all the while making the case that comics don't have to be limited to infantile stories about grown men in tights punching each other - they can be about real world concerns, like being twenty two years old and liking to look at porn magazines and R. Crumb drawings.
What are the comics about you ask? Well, it's kind of slice-of-life stuff, it's not like idiotic Marvel and DC stuff, it's more about like real world things, it's kind of embarrassing, it's not so much a story, but kind of like comics for grownups, I dunno, it's stupid, it's dumb, I'm stupid
The Sad-Boy 'zine lovingly satirizes 1990's style alternative comics autobio cartooning. It'll make you laugh, and at only $4.00 and shipping included, you can't lose. Best of all, it comes to you in the mail, like self-published 'zines used to do. It's like the FACTSHEET FIVE Glory Days have returned.
In addition to the Sad-Boy 'zine and copies of my recent book, Rules For Dating My Daughter, I am also offering a very limited number of Sad-Boy portraits, where I'll make you an original pen & ink drawing on bristol board of yourself as a sad-sack autobio cartoonist. Let me lovingly render you in your lonely EIGHTBALL comics reading glory, no extra charge for obsessive cross-hatching and beads of sweat.
Risks and challenges
Zero risks, zero challenges. The comics are written and laid out in InDesign, waiting only for the funding goals to be met before they are sent over to Alphagraphics to be photocopied and mailed out to you.
One serious note: The comics are intended for MATURE AUDIENCES. It wouldn't be a legitimate 1990's alternative comic if it didn't feature at least one graphic depiction of a man pleasuring himself.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
