Put me down for one (and do you take payment in Euro's?).

by TDI-Reporters-Notebook on 8/17/2010 @ 8:03am
please reserve one for me

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 8/17/2010 @ 9:35am
I understand that fredo wants a Kindle version donated to the public library.

by furslug1 on 8/17/2010 @ 10:45am
Can I get a hardback copy for my iPad, without Flash of course?
Seriously, do we order it from you or will it appear in a book or art store near me, soon?

by furslug1 on 8/17/2010 @ 10:46am
Ooops, guess I should have read all of your post. I'd rather buy my copy at Tacoma Art Supply.

by captiveyak on 8/17/2010 @ 10:51am
I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy a copy. It seems like the kind of thing I ought to do.

by ElectricElliot on 8/17/2010 @ 11:21am
WOOOTTT!! Can't wait. I'd like a signed copy please!

by Droid16 on 8/17/2010 @ 11:59am
Reserve one for me.

by Erik on 8/17/2010 @ 12:08pm
I am in for one, two if it is allowed under the rules.

by The Jinxmedic on 8/17/2010 @ 12:10pm

by Nick on 8/17/2010 @ 2:58pm
... well I can't *not* buy one... count me in!

by furslug1 on 8/17/2010 @ 6:00pm
Rules is Rules Jinxmedic, some peoples got rules for everything, others no rules for themselves, crazy world we live in.

by KevinFreitas on 8/17/2010 @ 6:35pm
Put me down for one! And congrats, RR! Welcome to the modern club of Tacoma artistic authors! Mark Monlux, Tom Llewellyn, and now you. Bravo!

by Dave_L on 8/17/2010 @ 6:52pm
But there is only one signed original Kalakala Tacomic. I hope it made the cut. You are going to attend the book-launch party aren't you? I'm in for a copy, as any friend of CLAW would be.
BTW, did you CLAW people hoard-up all the black Micron pens from TAS? (Fortunately, P-Z in the Target Business District fixed me up.)

by NineInchNachos on 8/17/2010 @ 9:01pm
my friend the MysteryCoconut ( ) is going to help me push this out as an e-book for iphone/ipad/applestore YES!

by NineInchNachos on 8/17/2010 @ 10:13pm
only 1 rule...


by NineInchNachos on 8/17/2010 @ 10:14pm
ha ha ha!

by NineInchNachos on 8/17/2010 @ 10:41pm
Even so, Thanks for enduring my lame travel edition Tacomic! back next week with all new endorsements!

by Mofo from the Hood on 8/18/2010 @ 7:29am
Does that price of $26.66 include a box of crayons and a toaster?

by The Jinxmedic on 8/18/2010 @ 7:59am
Don't put the crayons in the toaster- you are supposed to eat them raw. (Higher vitamin profile that way.)

by NineInchNachos on 8/18/2010 @ 1:31pm
Mofo, buying one of these books is an investment sure to increase in value, unlike say... a lichtenstein poster

by Mofo from the Hood on 8/18/2010 @ 8:46pm
When Tacoman's start finding my crayola-ized and MFTH autographed Tacomics wheatpasted illegally all over downtown, people will scratch their head and say, "lichtenstein who?"

by fredo on 8/19/2010 @ 8:08am
Will the Tacomic book be more of a coffee table book, or more of a Captain Billy's Whiz-Bang that we used to keep in the outhouse?

by NineInchNachos on 8/19/2010 @ 11:43am
6x9 200+ pgs.

it's going to be epic... might not get you relaxed enough to be an effective bathroom book if you know what I mean.

by Droid16 on 8/19/2010 @ 12:04pm
6x9 feet or inches. I think some wall sized Tacomics would be cool.

by Mofo from the Hood on 8/19/2010 @ 12:41pm
Epic size is 6 x 9 miles.

by NineInchNachos on 8/19/2010 @ 3:03pm
This book will move you for miles. Which coincidently makes it the perfect book to read on the bus.

Where is King's Books located at ?

by NineInchNachos on 8/21/2010 @ 8:55am
"King's Books is located in the historic Stadium District of Tacoma. The store is located one block from the Temple Theatre and four blocks from the historic Stadium High School. We have a myriad of used books, a selection of new books, and a lovely Rare Book Room. Also, we have convenient off-street parking.

If you're traveling on I-5, take the I-705/ City Center exit. Get in the right lane to follow the Schuster Parkway exit to the Stadium Way exit. Turn right at the light and follow Stadium Way up and past Stadium High to the first light. Turn left and continue three blocks (stay on your left at the three way intersection). We're just past the Temple Theatre on the right.

If you're on 6th Ave, follow it past Wright Park towards downtown. After going downhill, turn left at the second stop sign which is St. Helen's. We are three and a half blocks on the left (just before the Temple Theatre).

If you're coming in on Pacific Ave, turn left (going up the hill) onto 9th Ave. Take a right at Market St, which quickly turns into St. Helens Ave. We're located 6 blocks down on the left side (just before the Temple Theatre)."

by fredo on 10/7/2010 @ 6:31pm

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 10/7/2010 @ 6:40pm
That is just the starting bid, the price could go way up from there.

by NineInchNachos on 10/7/2010 @ 7:28pm
yes the original manuscript full of notes and corrections from the editor. I'm betting it will get picked up by Karpeles or the WSHM

official announcement of event on KINGS BOOKS EVENTS page!

save the date!

"November 15 * 7 pm. Tacomics Book Launch.

Join us for the release of RR Anderson's new collection 100 Tacomics: The Secular & Apolitical Cartoon Life of Tacoma and her Moral People(s). Collecting Anderson's work from the last four years, his political cartoons skewer local issues, politicians, celebrities, and other tomfoolery. Funded by the Tacoma Arts Commission. Part of Art at Work: Tacoma Arts Month!

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the CLAW (Cartoonist's League of Absurd Washingtonians). "

Can't wait. This is going to be a blowout release party.

I hope you ordered enough of the books or their could be a flash mob rush of people trying to get the last few copies.
