I can’t believe I hadn’t mentioned this sooner, since I was so excited when I first heard the news.
Howard Tayler, of Schlock Mercenary fame, has just received a 10,000 pound shipment of books. What book you ask? Why, none other than Schlock Mercenary : The Tub of Happiness, a full-color collection of his earliest strips!
If you’ve heard of Schlock Mercenary before, then you have a good idea why this news is so exciting to me. And if you haven’t, well, you’re in luck, because this book is the perfect place to start!
I have his other books, and they’re fabulous. Howard has always included all kinds of extras in his books – from sketches, to fanart, to entire extra stories. This book will be no different. This book includes fanart from such wonderful folks as Cas Allen, Jeff Darlington, Brad Guigar, David Kellett, Tiffany Ross, Krishna Sadasivam, Paul Taylor, Kevin Wasden, and Jim Zubkavich. Oh, and there’s a little sketch by some weird chick named Alina Pete.
Anyway, there’s a special pre-order deal going on until Monday, Dec. 3rd, so if you have the chance, you should go check it out!!
