Happy Birthday to My Wonderful Girlfriend!
This is the third birthday I’ve gotten to celebrate with Kim and every single one reminds me how blessed I am to have her in my life. I would probably be curled up in a ball screaming FUCK THE HATERS if not for her. Instead I actually get to write and hand my landlord internet cred he can cash at a bank.
Sanity mixed with love. That’s much better.
Now, to the fun stuff!
If you are, or someone you know is, an artist, this is a contest for you. The amazing Cyril Brown, of Hybrid Zero fame, is hosting a fan art contest in conjunction with his releases on Nerdanatix. All people will need to do is draw one of his characters, in any style they can imagine, and send it in. There will be cash and prizes for the winners. We’ll be announcing the judges and complete rules in a couple of weeks, so make sure you don’t miss an email.
Big congratulations to Magret Treiber who won the #NerdanatixUltimateFanGiveAway. In a surprisingly close contest she used the hashtag all over social media almost every day to secure delivery of every single title released by Nerdanatix as of July 31, 2019. Since many of the titles have multiple issues, she should have plenty of reading material for the foreseeable future.
That fact that she’s already a huge fan of McSciFi just makes me happier.
A quick reminder that I’ll be appearing at The House of Blues, at 329 N Dearborn St, Chicago, IL 60654 on August 17th from 2:30 PM until 6:00 PM for I AM FEST. There’ll be music, artists, writers, and all sorts of fun stuff. Plus, since it’s a restaurant and bar, there’ll be food and booze you can purchase.
All tickets are general admission so you’ll have the full run of the place once you’re in.
Well, not the offices or kitchen and stuff, but you get the idea.
I recently wrote a blog about the many advances in Alzheimer’s research and ended up having it sited by a venture capital firm as an example of a clear language look at a difficult topic. Due to a variety of laws regarding advertising stuff like this I’m not linking to them.
If reading is too hard, you’re in luck, I also talked about this on Ryan Gatenby’s The Big Wake Up Call which airs every Friday at 9:10 AM (CDT) on WBIG. Just CLICK HERE to be immersed in the coo-coo coolness of my voice. You’ll find me listed as Bill McCormick or World News Center. But the search engine is easy to use so you shouldn’t have any problems.
While I’m chewing on my toenails anxiously waiting to announce some cool news regarding my next novel, and the re-launch of my current trilogy, I thought I should take a moment to clear up a common misconception. While all of my comics are available digitally, since that’s what the cool kids like, they are also available in print, which is what the coolest kids like. When you order a print copy it gets delivered to your home, or office, or where ever you want. It even comes in opaque packaging so your mailman won’t know if you’ve ordered cool comics or porn.
So that’s convenient.
In the meantime, if you’re not sure if McSciFi is right for you, you can check out issue #1 of each for free online. Downloading or printing costs extra, but not too much, if you want a permanent souvenir.
Currently, I have the following titles available.
Juggernaut – Set in the distant future, Juggernaut is the story of a human/alien fusion and her strange family. They live in an era where sexuality, in all its myriad forms, isn’t taboo but violence is. This group of aristocratic soldiers, who just happen to be related, must face down their own petty, in the grand scheme of things, problems and stop a trans-dimensional creature before it destroys the universe. Or not. It really depends on their mood at the time.
Legends Parallel – This is the perfect comic series for those who think quantum physics isn’t violent or sexy enough. Five earths and one woman wants to rule them all. This is the story of the man, his mom, and her lover who have to stop that from happening.
Svarozic – A woman trapped inside a man, a god trapped inside a human. Since they’re all one person, she’s got issues. This is a very TEEN FRIENDLY comic. I wrote it to give trans kids a superhero of their own. It’s even got a Gypsy circus. Because every comic set in Russia needs a Gypsy circus.
Jungle Grrl – In a distant future sex is encouraged, violence is frowned upon, and our hero, her bestie, and their dino clone, try to eke out a living in a sex park while figuring out the meaning of life. The existential poetry based on beer should be enough to make you grab this one.
Ruh Roh Rangers – This is the parody that’ll ruin your childhood but make your day. Those four meddlesome kids are now four meddlesome adults.
See you next week!
