Vanity, thy name is Google

A recent vanity search at Google yielded two surprising -- and, indeed, laughable results!

Somebody used a quote from my website in a book about comics publishing. The author even identifies me as the "creator of Quirk" -- as if that was something that meant anything, as if anyone had ever heard of the thing!

And get a load of this: a used book dealer in New Hampshire has listed the two paper issues of Quirk through ABEBooks. He's selling them as a "set" (*chortle* *snort*) for $12.50!

Hell fire! I have four boxes of the things that I am about to throw away. I'll send 'em to you for free, if you'll pay the postage!

Seriously. In the unlikely event that there's anyone out there who wants to check out the worst two comic books ever published, drop me an email or leave a comment. I just want to get rid of the damn things!

    doesn't work, who knows who may be out there trying to communicate with you but can't? Could make it tough to move a few QUIRKs (though to be honest, billing them as, "the worst two comic books ever published" won't help your cause, and is unfair to the material, as well. cat yronwode didn't think so, and a lot of us didn't think so, either. If you saw some of the egregious TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES knock-offs from the late '80s/early '90s . . . )."
