Our weekly installments of Truth Serum at the Dark Horse web site have been going smoothly, except for a recent incident of neglect. Schedules and such caught up with us and we weren't able to complete one in time. We toyed with the idea of having darkhorse.com web guru Adam Gallardo fill in, but after seeing the results, we decided against it.
It's here. Truth Serum #3 is out on the stands today. It's the big one. The last issue. The thrilling climax to which the first twi issues have been building. Prepare yourself. And best of all, Slave Labor hasn't messed with it this time.
When we originally solicited this issue, we went through several revisions. Earlier iterations were scrapped for obvious reasons.
What words can fill this space in order to make you buy as many copies of Truth Serum #3 as possible? FREE? SEX? BREASTS? FIGHT? None of these words describe this comic. But so what? The only word that aptly describes it is "lose," but that doesn't make you want to buy it. Does it? Just give me your f***ing money.
The results are in for the "Chester Has No Face: the Contest" contest! Click to see the winner and the runner-up. We also have some losers, but we won't show you those. After all, they're losers.
Here's the winning entry from Fritz Saalfeld of Germany. If you'd like to communicate with Fritz in some manner, you may do so my clicking right here. Keep an eye out here to see Fritz's prize soon available in the comics section.
Here's the 2nd-place entry from Lee Post of Anchorage, Alaska. Lee produces "Your Square Life" a very, very funny weekly comic. Email him to receive it FREE in your email. We dare you.
Truth Serum #2 is out today! Yay! Boo, however, to our publisher Slave Labor, again altering a portion of our content and screwing it up. On the inside back cover where the text reads "...of the upmost importance," it should read "...of the utmost importance.
Happy Valentine's Day! A special comic, not available in the comics section is available right here.
The good news is that Truth Serum #1 is out today! The bad news is that, quite sadly, our publisher Slave Labor has taken it upon themselves to alter the indicia of Truth Serum #1 without asking or telling. Changing both content and design, the result is something that barely resembles its intended form.
Here's the original version.
And here's a printable version that you can download and paste into your copy (if you really have too much time and energy).
