Unhinged Bill Jemas to Give Away Free

Each of Double Take's ten launch titles will be free to read digitally on their website!

Appearing inexplicably in the lot of a used car dealership Monday morning, former Marvel publisher and current Double Take mogul Bill Jemas announced plans to allow fans to read digital storyboard versions of each of its ten launch titles for free on the Double Take website this September. Shouting at a crowd of confused reporters, an animated Jemas jumped around and tossed comics in the air as he explained that the price of Double Take's digital comics could not be beat and insinuated that he had evaded multiple attempts to commit him to a mental health facility because of his desire to make the comics available for free.

"I'm practically giving them away!" Jemas yelled before correcting himself. "Actually I'm literally giving them away!"

Though Double Take's physical comics are already priced at $2.50, well below the accepted highway robbery price of mainstream comic books, Jemas cited a desire to reach a larger audience and possibly the affects of long-untreated syphilis as motivation for also allowing readers to view the full stories online at no cost.

"Our prices are insaaaaaaaannnnneee!" Jemas shouted in the face of a terrified journalist whom he had grabbed by the collar and was shaking vigorously.

According to accounts of Jemas's ranting and raving, readers can actually log onto the website now to read digital versions of four Double Take launch titles set in the same universe as the classic horror flick, Night of the Living Dead. Z-Men #1, Rise #1, Slab #1, and Spring #1 are all available to read right now, with the remaining six titles guaranteed to be available in full by the time the books hit stores on September 16th.

The comics will also be published one per week on satirical comic book website The Outhouse in the weeks leading up to the launch, part of a faustian bargain in which the website has sold out what little integrity it had to shill comics for Jemas, who webmaster Jude Terror calls "a major influence" for his efforts in trolling the comic book industry with comics such as Marville and Trouble at the turn of the century. That Jemas appears to have lost his mind from working in the industry doesn't concern Terror, who said that anyone who works in comics for an extended period is likely to have "issues."

After berating the comic book press with descriptions of the madness of offering digital comics to read for free on the web before or on the same day as they're released to stores, Jemas was forced to flee the impromptu press conference when police sirens could be heard approaching the used car lot. Stunned journalists were encouraged to check out Double Take's website as soon as they've recovered and to tell their readers to do the same.

At press time, Jemas had reportedly commandeered the old stock storage room of an electronics store in upstate New York and was screaming about free comics in front of shelves full of old VCRs and black and white televisions. We'll keep you updated on authorities' attempts to capture Jemas and force him to seek help.
