Palookaville 12: Abraham Makes Dinner!
In this issue, Abraham, the retired businessman narrating the story, talks about the art of salesmanship. He also makes dinner. This is obviously not the world's most exciting comic, but it's strangely enjoyable. Here are some more random thoughts about it:
*Abraham's brother collected novelty postcards. In the comments about the collection, it's hard not to see Seth commenting on comic book collectors: "It's somewhat odd that a man who was so well read , so knowledgeable, would waste his time on decades old paper sundries."
*This issue ends part one of "Clyde Fans". I have no idea how many parts there actually are. I'm not sure that Seth even knows.
*The letters page contains a letter by comic fandom historian Bill Schelly, author of The Golden Age Of Comic Fandom, as well as letters from cartoonists Steven Weissman, Ivan Brunetti, and Ariel Bordeaux. On the page, Seth announces an art exhibition at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles. Meltdown's a cool store. I visited it this summer when I was in L.A.
Are you insane with your marketing budget? Do you have spare change under the couch cushions? Perhaps then you would like to advertise on WredFright.Com. Email Wred at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
Google plops ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). Google also provides traffic statistics to me so I can see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
