Taking a break from robots today to alert you to a vast conspiracy: the Transmission X Conspiracy.
See, Transmission X is a group of Toronto-based webcomics creators. When you talk to these people, they seem nice enough, talking about how they just want to make good comics. And they have provided the world with such brilliant webcomics as the Eisner-nominated The Abominable Charles Christopher and Sin Titulo, plus the lovely Raising Hell and Kukuburi.
But don't be fooled. Transmission X is out to take your money.
Just look at the print volume for The Abominable Charles Christopher, which is now available for preorder. Just looking at that embossed cover and thinking about 144 pages of funny/sad/heartwarming yeti adventures is making my wallet hurt.
Also out this week is the first issue of Kill Shakespeare, drawn by Raising Hell's Andy Belanger. I'm not sold on the book itself -- even with the promising premise of Shakespeare's characters attempting to free themselves from the tyranny of the Bard's quill -- but I do love the way Belanger draws a battle scene.
How will Transmission X plot to take your money next? Will we see a Sin Titulo book on the horizon? More Kukuburi gear? A Princess Planet playset? The possibilities are endless.
