     What oh what did Atlantis Lad find?

     The McGuffin!  That’s what!  (Too bad you’ll have to wait until next time to see it)

     When I started planning MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE I wrote a page full of potential McGuffins and story titles, and oddly enough neither “Al Capone’s OTHER Vault” or this McGuffin were on that sheet.  The story I planned to do (which ended up in Super Fantastica Comix #1– http://www.superfantasticacomix.com) was literally knocked out of my head as I sat down to draw it, replaced by this story–practically written start to finish in a one second burst of inspiration.

…not to build up any unrealistic expectations…

     I guess I’m just proud of how shampoo-simple this story explains who the characters are, how they act towards each other, and the world of  off-the-rack plots they inhabit–all with no over-thinking  on my part required.

    Yay!!! Way to go, man– I’m glad you’re doing this site. Your other site was a little… impersonal. And hectic. And now I get to see all the Manly Tales backstory. I missed you at the last jam– sorry I wasn’t able to come.

      Yes…the comicspace thing was a black hole I was wanting to pave-over for a while, so I’m glad I finally am getting around to making staplegenius.com what I’ve always wanted.
      We missed you at the last jam as well…no love at all.

    Yeah, Jesse. The last jam was a good time. You really missed out. Danno, I promise I will get you that high res graphic. I’ve been bogged down with the Bachmann comic.

    Cool!…but no rush.
    I’ll probably keep changing the logo frequently.
