Marketing Comics–WWFD?

Welp, the “America’s Top Toon-MILF–Battle of the Cartoon Moms” contest has come to a close. Morticia–you go, girlfriend! We’ll do it again sometime. Soon? Next Mother’s Day? What do you think? And what do you think of Joe of the Forbidden Planet’s idea of a DILF contest? It sounds pretty good to me, I’ll think about it for Father’s Day. Who should be the contestants?

Which brings up something interesting. How do you make decisions? I have to decide now how to market the new Arf book, Arf Forum. For moral decisions I always ask myself “What Would Lindsay Lohan Do? (WWLLD?). For comics marketing strategies , having just discovered this sequence in an old Felix comic book, I will herein ask myself “What Would Felix Do?” (WWFD?)

Here’s a Felix statue YOE! Studio created for our good friends at Dark Horse and under the supervision of the talented Don Oriolo. Now here’s Felix on comics marketing:

So Felix’s answer on how to market comics? A mind-altering chemical of course. I’m =SO= there! P-f-f-f-f-fttt! Buy Arf Forum, you will do it NOW!
