I just got this excitiing email from DJ David B.:
“Thought you’d like to know that Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings (that’s S apostrophe, not apostrophe S) arrived in comics shops today, just in time for Post-Halloween. It’s a beautiful book, even nicer than I expected.
“I’ve looked at some of the dirty pichurs but I want to sit down and actually read the words now. It looks like a lot of fun.
“I’ll see if I have anything in my collection for volume 2!”
Thanks for writing DJ David B. Any one else snag a copy yet? So FINALLY we have achieved distribution. And Amazon now has it as does my favorite mail order dealer Bud Plant has it as does the book’s esteemed publisher, Last Gasp. There’s a Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings website with a big preview here.

Those are going to go very fast, many people have been bugging me, so if you want one act immediately. One to a customer. First come first served.
