People ask why I always ride in the front seat - it’s because I get there faster

Super hyper mega classic

I no longer have the action figure :(

Burden's comics are some of the only ones to make me IRL LOL (see also: Kupperman, surely someone else but no one I can think of immediately). Second the call for some nice hardcovers because what are they even waiting for.

yeah any issue of fc, like groo, always has at least one moment that will make me laugh out loud.

Burden was consistently one of the nicest con-going pros I met in my active fanboy days, and he still is apparently -- I sent my copy of the Gumby Summer Fun Special with my daughter to Dragoncon last year to get him and Art Adams to sign, and she said Burden was a sweetheart and Adams was surly. I wish I hadn't lost my copies of the Atlanta Fantasy Fair program books that had the first Carrot appearances.

They're waiting for you to not wait six years after publication so that Used - Like New copies are going for $140-$350 on Amazon?

the first maybe 16 or so issues, unimpeachably classic, never bettered, the dead dog jumped up and flew around the fucking room!
burden then attempting at great length to strike franchise gold, not so classic
and then the weird attempts to make comics with the least amount of drawing possible, dud
but collabos with my household god Rick Geary - classic

Classic up to #24 imo. (I enjoy the Turtles crossover myself, but it's downhill after that.)

I'm not sure you get how Kickstarter works, especially for 60-year-old men with no resources.

totally with you on hardcover reprints, really warming to see the love here for this

also wish they would re-print silent hill, these limited runs killing me

didn’t y’all find, with the paperbacks, that less is more? The concentrated dose of weirdness between colour covers in a single issue was really undermined by being stuck between 200 other black & white pages of the same stuff.

no

El Tomboto, Saturday, 6 October 2018 17:20 (two months ago) Permalink

that given, do you really expect to enjoy it any more in books that are exactly the same as ones you already own, except heavier?

I baste my thigh, gent (sic), Saturday, 6 October 2018 18:10 (two months ago) Permalink

Yes

Nice paper makes everything better

El Tomboto, Saturday, 6 October 2018 18:13 (two months ago) Permalink

the entirety of Marvel Comics' trade program disproves that handily

the world of Flaming Carrot is a low-rent milieu, served by a low-rent presentation. Bob Burden cannot, by reasonable metrics, draw well, and his post-bar inkings would not be improved by high-quality stock, even if the original art were available to shoot from. (And we have three decades of evidence that Preney was better able to reproduce even Gerhard's hatching or Campbell's zip collages on newsprint than other printers have been able to on white paper using Preney's own negs.)

cannot draw well

nb that I would absolutely hang framed pages from FCs #11-23 on my wall if I had money and walls

El OTM nice paper does make everything better!

it feels really nice to hold and look at in our digital times, fwiw

xp yep lots of great art in FC.

seriously, what examples of white-paper-hardbacks of material originally done by Preney are improvements?

I wonder what you think you're adding to this discussion

El Tomboto, Sunday, 7 October 2018 20:35 (two months ago) Permalink

If nothing else, sic has informed me that I already own the Flaming Carrot collections, and now that I'm no longer ignorant of that fact I can finally stop pining for new Flaming Carrot collections.

xpost a starry-eyed, optimistic belief in the power of facts to provide better answers to OL's questions than wistful fantasies might?

Shy Betting Mega Hit (sic), Sunday, 7 October 2018 21:10 (two months ago) Permalink

p sure I didn't specifically do that
