I suddenly want to read a comic about a radio station...
DARK HORSE PRESENTS: "RADIO GA GA"!
MARCH 28, MILWAUKIE, OR—"Radio Ga Ga" is the newest and zaniest story to come to the pages of the Dark Horse Presents anthology.
Written by Chad Lambert and drawn by Apriyadi Kusbiantoro, "Radio Ga Ga" is the story of a young man with a dream who gets mistaken for an assassin. People think radio personalities are crazy, but sometimes it's the listeners who are truly flippin' nuts. Especially when they can get you arrested by the Secret Service.
"Writers are supposed to write what they know, and no one knows how to fail at broadcasting more than me. I never realized my pain was so funny to others," said Chad.
"I've been sitting on these radio stories for fifteen years, but I was always kind of embarrassed to share them. Then one day, out of the blue, my wife informed me that these tales would make fascinating comic-book stories. So, if you like 'Radio Ga Ga,' blame her."
"Chad's self-deprecating sense of humor makes his pain and suffering fun to draw. I'm proud to have this story be my debut at Dark Horse," stated Apriyadi.
Check out "Radio Ga Ga" in Dark Horse Presents #14, on stands July 18!

About the Author - SuperginraiX
SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
