Ok, getting back on the horse...

It's been a while so I will start with the biggest thing. Utopiates Vol. 1 came out three weeks ago and is currently SOLD OUT on! In three weeks they sold out! Amazon will get more soon, but this is just wonderful news!

 Second, we will be exhibiting at APE in San Francisco next month! So if you are in the area, please feel free to stop by and see us.

 And last, but not least, Josh has started his own blog at

More from the land of SPAM

I wish I could have that Monty Python song play everytime I post these.

Anyway, the spammers have been busy this last week.

"The elder sent me to ask you if we could have one of the arrows so we can begin to make the small spear points for it." -

If somebody can tell me what THIS is all about, I would dearly like to know. So far the leading guess is the Mormons sent a bot to the Utopiates page because of the title "Tip of the Spear"... but who knows.

"Hi! my celebrity is Jully. I would like to meemeet respected urchin  This is my homepage -..."

I want to meemeet a respected urchin!

"My family is terrible at this. I however am the dishwasher tetris wizard.-tetris theme here-"

This spam was directed to the page of Utopiates where The Junky tries to commit suicide, realizes he doesn't have it in him, and goes back for more drugs. So I guess this person is terrible at suicide attempts, so instead they play tetris in the dishwasher.

"For this purpose imagine a monitor made around the earth and then a vehicle progresses it having a speed on the speed of sunshine."

It Came from SPAM!

Today I got the stranges SPAM in my inbox.

My name is Joy, i got you sarch. and i want to have a
good relationship with you, please i need your cooperation,contact me with my email adress,
( )
am yours Joy.

So now the pressing (although rediculous) question now is...
What is a "sarch" and why is it a suficient bribe for me to cooperate with a stranger who wants to have a relationship with me.
All seriousnes... this one is pretty weird. I have not responded to it, nor have I emailed this person back... or will I.

The Wonderful World of SPAM

This is a new series of columns I plan on posting where I share with all of you the diffrent spam messages I get from the 01Publishing, Utopiates, and other websites. Some are strange, some make no sense, but all are funny.

I think I'm Pregnant.

I can get a meatless sandwich, but I ve been told not to order it every single time, less they identify me as The Shopper, and then I won t be able to work for them anymore.
This came from the Utopiates site... it blue-screens my mind every time I read it.

It is just like you read my thoughts! You appear to know a huge amount of in regards to this, such as you wrote the hem ebook with them or something. I believe that anyone can use a couple pics to drive the material home rather, but rather than that, this really fantastic blog. An outstanding read. I am going to easily be back.

This from

do you have funny spam to share with the world. Let me know and I'll post it.

I'm Back!

Yes, it's been a year, or so, since I've felt the need and the urge to write in this blog. A very bad thing, I know. A hiatus I plan on never going on again, and I appologise

So I guess I should talk a little about what I've been up to these last 11 months. The big news is Josh and I have started our own publishing company, 01 Publishing, and plan to have our first graphic novel out by the end of March. If you remember our first project, Utopiates, then you'll be happy to know it will be out before tax day and you can preorder your copy right now on If you can't wait that long, we are posting it online, IN COLOR, at or you can read the first issue for free on

We will also be publishing the long-overdue cyberpunk book "Crazy Mary" by Mike Colbert in time for Anime Expo in June, and the historical satire epic "World War Kaiju" featuring artwork by Patric McEvoy.
You can see all of these books at

And for Titanium Rain fans, don't worry, you are not forgotten. As both Josh and I have said in the past, book 2 IS DONE and has been for some time now. There are just a few things we need to get worked out and it will hit the presses. I'm very sorry for this long delay. I would love to see this book on the shelves. It will happen. Please be patient and thank you for sticking with us.

But, in the mean time, did you know that Titanium Rain is being adapted into an audio drama? It's true! We went to Maine to record it back in November of '11 with the amazingly talented Audio Comics Company is doing a fantastic job of adapting the book.

So, in a nut shell, that was 2011.
