Where is that banner to get one then? :)
Oh, on the SIDE – not below. Hope amazon has decent shipping then.
I bought a copy, and posted rave reviews on both Goodreads and Amazon. Sorry I’m not more influential.
Just bought one.
I wonder if that happened in the real life too.
Ahhhh, the sucking sounds of life! Just plug your ears and keep trying!
I suppose that a lot of people who wanted the book got it by supporting it on Kickstarter.
It’s a tough biz to crack. If it helps any, remember that ‘A Christmas Carol’ and ‘Moby Dick’ were fiscal disasters that nearly erased themselves from public record, that no one cared about Jane Austin ‘til long after she went to the grave, and Poe died in penury, too. In contrast, ‘Garfield’? Really? But who’ll remember that in a hundred years?
One thing i noticed – you gotta listen to the story and tell what it wants to say.
Look at the complexities of the pre-end interactions you built in SvD, then compare that to the straight-play final scenes you did run. Drac should have had more than ‘run away’ as a final plan or ‘throw other peoples’ bodies in the way’. That’s not how he was writ.
Santa, once infected and realizing his state (revealed as Drac’s final Plan B??), should have begged his wife for death … and that should have been the awful gift she had to deliver that one special Christmas. Which would also have made her the next Santa. !
Everything written in the prior was headed on that way. Here you get sorrow, shock, and something that’s a bit uplifting if also bittersweet. That would have been a heck of a combination and a super slam-dunk. The real ending was nice horror candy – but it’s all one flavor, which came off as a shame when you could have had the full Baskin-Robbins.
On the “Billy & Mandy Grim Christmas” they deal with vampirism too. Fortunately they did not have to kill Santa to cure him. (Though the little girl Mandy wanted to “stake the fat man!”) Still I found “Santa vs Dracula” too be fun. Hopefully they can revisit that universe sometime. I enjoyed it. Delve into the things only hinted it at.
I liked it! I don’t know, maybe bring them to conventions?
At least gocomics.com got through the entire Santa VS. Dracula graphic novel.
Of course, I remember getting my Santa VS. Dracula graphic novel after helping with Ed and Mel’s Kickstarter campaign.
