Thinkulus is coming…

Apparently enough of you guys like Hodabeast, Chickadoowa and Bimboozled enough to merit Cool Jerk Vol. 4: Thinkulus… because it’s at the printers and it’ll be here in about six weeks. Let me tell you a little bit about it!

• It’s a handsome tome, in the same format and architecture as previous volumes. It contains more than 210 comics, a whopping 10 percent of which are brand-new for the book! THAT’S JUST CRAZYPANTS!! And like previous book-only strips, they’re not available online so don’t bother looking! On second thought, knock yourself out!

• Foreword is by the ever-charming and delightful Jane Wiedlin.

• I held a Facebook contest to decide which route to take for the cover illustration: The Lynch Mob or Dangerman vs Pokéyman. The votes were tallied and not only did you vote for Dangerman vs Pokéyman BUT I randomly selected one winning voter to adorn my cover with a blurb. Congratulations, Jamie Lim! I don’t think a comic-con has gone by without her visiting the Cool Jerk table; hoping this year is no different!

Side note: I occasionally hold contests and/or encourage readers to participate in Cool Jerk hi-jinks. The Facebook contest was open only to people who gave that page a LIKE. So if you haven’t already, please give that page a LIKE so you can participate in future crowdsourcing interactions!

Thinkulus is 144 pages of comics, sketches, cutting-room floor rarities and other worthwhile stuff. People just love the director’s commentary and anal-retentive index, so we’ve got those, too!

Thinkulus retails for the low, low price of $12, and will be available at San Diego Comic-Con International (its debut) and at the Cool Jerk store and thereafter.

    FIRST! You’ll let me know, personally, when it’s available for purchase, RIGHT??

  2. Save one for MOI. pretty please.

    OMG, Jane Wiedlin (aka “Joan of Arc” from “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”)?????!!!!!!

    My wife and I met you on Friday just before the end of the show. We bought Hodabeast and I’m about half way through it and I really like it. I can’t believe these comics are from 20+ years ago (although the Beverly Hills 90210 references give it away ha ha). I look forward to being a “JERK!” and getting the new book when it comes out.

    How’s the book coming along? Has been printed yet? Did you go U.S.A. or overseas?

  5. Our Man Horn says:

    @Mister Sister @RockyMtn.: Figure that the week of Comic-Con (mid-July) is a safe bet.

    @caninecologne: But of course! And yep— THAT Jane Wiedlin!

    @Laff-a-weed: Book is printed and on the slow boat from Hong Kong. It was a MF’ing NIGHTMARE to deal with these printers. And they’re here (the reps, at least) in San Diego! Amateurish mistakes and unrepentant. More on that later. =:^(

  6. Laff-a-weed says:

    Whoa, no way. It wasn’t R.R. Donnelley, was it? I remember you telling me they were a class act (or, at least, were pleasant to work with and did a good job).

  7. Our Man Horn says:

    @Laff-a-weed: Nope, not R.R.Donnelley. I’ll tell you after I receive my books.
