This is actually one of the many amazing things about human progress and our growing understanding of the universe: Things that once seemed absolutely, assuredly, positively, undeniably impossible become common place.
I enjoy the holidays. Overall, it’s a nice time of year. It’s not perfect, but there are some really positive things about the holidays that always bring a smile to my face. There are also some things that make me want to tear my hair out.
Things I find awesome things about the holidays:
- Christmas lights in public places, like main streets.
- The “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” theme song.
- Psychostick’s Christmas album. “Silent Night! AAAAAAAAAH!”
- The inevitable argument and/or emotional breakdown someone in my family will have. Makes for a great story later.
- The look on someone’s face when they open that awesome Secret Santa / Yankee Swap gift you put into the grab bag.
Things I find awful things about the holidays:
- Black Friday.
- Inflatable Christmas decorations on front lawns.
- “A Wonderful Christmas Time” by Paul McCartney & Wings.
- Anyone who utters the phrase “War On Christmas.”
As far as holiday gifts go, don’t forget we have a treasure trove of stuff around here! We’ve got a Shark Robot store where you can buy Garth’s artwork and t-shirts; you can purchase or download copies of our first three Issues through Quick Comics and DriveThru Comics, respectively; and you can reserve your copy of the first Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire omnibus!
Just in time for the holidays, it’s the beginning of Issue 4! It feels like a present, at least for me and Garth, because we are really excited to show you this one. We love every Issue, and each new one a little more than the one before it, but Garth and I are really, really proud of this one and we hope you enjoy what’s to come.
Part of the reason we’re so excited about this incoming Issue is that the collaborative process was in full swing on this one. When script ideas were bouncing back-and-forth, worlds were being built (and destroyed) and the foundation was laid for future Issues, character arcs, and discoveries. When two nerds (i.e. me and Garth) get into the deep and dirty of galaxy building, they’re proud of the outcome and get eager to share their ideas with their friends. Like I said, we’re really proud of this Issue and hope you enjoy it.
Also just in time for the holidays, “Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire, THE COMPLETE SERIES, Volume 1″ is available at a special pre-order price all this month! There’s an FAQ on the front page to answer all the important questions, like shipping times and the contents of this first omnibus. Thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered so far, but December will be over before you know it, so be sure to reserve your copy soon!
