You can all eat a dick. There is no reason to see this as an april fools joke.


Calm down, sparky.
It is very easy to see this as an April fools joke, and i thought it was a pretty creative one at that. Still it is real and that is great news to me.

You can come over to my house 3 hours away where I will make you a delicious chicken dinner with mashed potatoes, green beans and then a great big dick float for dessert.

Also I posted this right before I had a ton to do at work so I was unable to see the continued posts.

:lol: ill take the dinner but pass on desert. It was great that you brought this news to our attention-- jude did get an article out if it. Id say any other day than today i would have believed it in a heart beat, but will all the false news flying around this could have been one of them. That is all I'm saying.

I feel responsible since I stole BK's joke and hijacked Yoni's thread. All for my front page glory!

Let's hope so...

I'm pretty sure it was a pretty good seller as opposed to Wildcats and Stormwatch.

Regardless of what it sold, Wildstorm bit the dust. Vertigo may as well have.

Hank Kanalz, who used to run Wildstorm, is now in charge of Vertigo so hopefully Busiek got good terms there for his owned property at least, I don't think he's in very good health.
