Ian, "Hail to The Cat" was the best issue of Simpsons Comics ever, and "Kickn' it Old School" was actually my favorite issue of Futurama comics. No that's not random sucking up, you're one of my favorite writers, I mean it. I'm glad to hear that you got into the industry by writing your own mini-series, because I'm in the process of doing the same thing right now.
Yeah, I sound like a douche bag. I'll leave you alone now.
..... Still haven't got issue 18 yet.
@Action Jacktion: If you're still serious about getting a comic out there, and you're not against using a self publishing banner, send me an email. I can put you in contact with the guys I'm publishing mine with. You have to pay for printing costs, but they'll hook you up with an artist, and help you get the word out about you're comic. From what I'm told, it's the best way to start out, because the bigger publishers (Avatar, Dark Horse, etc.) won't even give you a second look unless you've got some experience under you're belt.
