THE WORLD OF BUZZCOMIXon September 1, 2004 at 12:00 am
I just wanted to send a quick shout out to my friend (and fellow Dayfree Press cohort) Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content for making it into The Hall of Fame over at buzzComix. It's quite an achievement considering the short amount of time he's been on the scene. I believe in some circles, that kind of meteoric rise is also known as "kicking ass and taking names." Congrats, Jeph! (now if I can only figure out a way to get his readers to vote for me!)
Theater Hopper is currently in third over at buzzComix. If you'd like to vote to show your support, I'd appreciate it.
Remember a couple of weeks ago when Scary Go Round and WIGU joined buzzComix and everyone was all a-titter? Let's just say that the irony does not escape me that they currently hold the number one and number two spot respectively. Oh, well. Such is life! I'm sure I'll find a comfortable spot somewhere in the middle of the Top 10. RStevens just threw his hat into the ring with Diesel Sweeties. So I have that going for me… which is nice.
Actually, it's really hard to pretend to be upset about this sort of thing. Simple science tells you that whenever any well-known creator joins a group you belong to, it raises the profile of everyone previously affiliated. Being so close to the top spot, I'm basking in some pretty sweet indirect attention! Why bother going to the trouble of making yourself distinctive when you can just quietly leech off the success of others!
Speaking of which, my good buddy Zach over at Joe and Monkey told his readers to vote for Theater Hopper this week. I'm inclined to return the favor. If you're not reading Zach's comic (and voting for it), then you're really missing out!
Give a brother a hand!
