Sad McSciFi

Uncategorised Posted on Tue, September 17, 2019 10:25:02

Welcome to our new subscribers.

We begin this e-blast on a sad note. Danny Pitts, the father of Hadithi Sambamba Comix founder, Brian “Bigger Lion Daniel” Pitts, passed away on September 12. He was an integral force behind the scenes. Always encouraging, always supporting. If a ride wasn’t available to a con, even if it was hours away, he provided it. If we needed a floor to sleep on, he found it. 

He was Brian’s father but he took us all in and treated us like family. He made sure we got the love and inspiration we needed to press on. He was taken far too soon, and will be sorely missed.

Rest in Peace Danny, you’ve earned it.

In happier Hadithi Sambamba news, your favorite surreal futurist, Cyril Brown, is still hosting his fanart contest and entries are starting to wander in.

Just click THIS LINK to get all the rules and character samples for Cyril Brown’s Hybrid Zero Fanart Contest and take a look at all the eye popping stuff we have online for you to work from.

In other Hadithi Sambamba news, Legends Parallel, the comic that started it all, is being added to more stores in the Southwest. We are hoping, praying?, to start seeing hard copies east of the Mississippi. If you, or someone you love, would like to order copies for a store, just CLICK HERE and select the DISTRIBUTION button. 

Also, if you want some rocking Legends Parallel gear, including onesies for the hipper infants online, just CLICK HERE to revel in the awesomeness of it all.

If you want to order hard copies of the comic for personal use, there’s info approaching rapidly..

More below.

If you want personal hard copies, autographed upon request, I will ship anywhere in the world, just ask first if you’re not on U.S. soil so I can figure out the extra costs. All titles shipped in the U.S. are delivered via U.S.P.S. media mail and usually arrive within seven calendar days of ordering.

Currently, I have the following titles available.

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.

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. This is a magazine sized masterpiece that will impress all who see it.

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.

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. There is a limited amount of American Manga sized versions of this. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

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. Scooby Dooby Don’t!

More below.


Don’t forget to tune in every Friday around 9:10 AM (CDT) to WBIG 1280 AM to listen to me on The Big Wake Up Call with Ryan Gatenby and to read all my nonfiction – mostly science, sometimes odd science, occasionally pop culture – over at The World News Center.

The radio show is funny, and still manages to cover a wide range of serious topics from updating listeners on cures for Alzheimer’s to how not to hunt pythons in a swamp. Oddly, that last one has come up more than once. If you can’t listen in just click THIS LINK to scour to the podcasts.

One thing I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older is we can survive the losses heaped upon us. That mourning doesn’t mean surrendering. That remembering doesn’t require dwelling in the past. Danny’s passing was a shock to us all, most certainly for his immediate family. After all, he was only a few years older than me and had plans made well into the future.

If you want to honor his memory, head over to HADITHI SAMBAMBA and browse all the amazing works that are now his legacy. He lived his life full of love and art. There are worse ways to get through.

See you next week.

Welcome Newbies, your timing is perfect!

Due to a customer request we have now added Pico Polos to your stores.

Since I did not know they offered the perfect shirts for Fortune 500 golf outings, or that any of my fans had any interest in such a thing, I dived in to see what else Spreadshirt had added. And they had added a lot. Plus, and this was cool, they changed the way stores could be presented. Now, instead of showing each article individually, I can show the design, then you click on it, pick the item you think best fits your amazing, awesome, God has truly blessed you, lifestyle, and buy it. It’s a much more pleasant shopping experience.

Which all means, and you knew this was coming, that you can now get onesies for your infants as well as gear for adults. Since I relaunched the stores last Thursday I have learned that placing inappropriate images on infant wear is a popular thing to do. I love people all the more now.

You can check out all the coo coo coolness just by visiting the LEGENDS PARALLEL and BILL McSCIFI stores.

More below.

As long as you’re in the mood to add to your cool cred, I’d like to remind you that I still have overstock of all my titles cluttering up my living room. I will ship anywhere in the world, just ask first if you’re not on U.S. soil so I can figure out the extra costs. All titles shipped in the U.S. are delivered via U.S.P.S. media mail and usually arrive within seven calendar days of ordering.

My physical therapists, Patrick & Jessica, each have a complete set, and now you can too.

Currently, I have the following titles available.

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.

NEW STUFF!

On September 16, 2019, I will be joining the fun folks at NEW WAVE COMICS as a staff writer. They’re been around since 1993 and specialize in young adult, Christian themed, comics. The stories feature sci-fi, yes science and religion can be friends – they are with me all the time, and urban themes. It’s going to be an interesting experience for me, plugging into an existing fan base, but I’m really looking forward to it. Also, bonus, I’ll now have comics I can share with the kids in Sunday School when I teach.

Now I know that many of you tune in religiously (see? see what I did there?) every Friday around 9:10 AM (CDT) to WBIG 1280 AM to listen to me on THE BIG WAKE UP CALL with Ryan Gatenby. And, heaven only knows, we appreciate it. But, and this is the cool part, many of you appreciate us right back. So much so that we’re spinning off this segment into a full podcast called SCIENCE CHIT CHAT. I’ll have launch dates soon enough so I hope you’re looking for it. It will be more freewheeling than THE BIG WAKE UP CALL, but just as assiduously researched.

If, after all this, you’re still not sure if McSciFi is the sci-fi author for you, then CLICK HERE for a free sampling of my work. It includes short stories, nonfiction, comics (online only), and more. You might want to bookmark that link. I update the page as needed. 

See you next week!
