Ooo. Fancy smancy.

So how much of that $125 do you get?

Oh NYer pays much more than 125$ cause they basically buy your first born son.

Good job, apparently the mainstream media finally realizes what we all know: that you ARE for the birds.

Wait, I thought you already had some or one in there? All my issues for the last couple months are waiting for me to pick them up. I will demand an autograph in some eloquent fashion with calligraphy and embossing.
How often does one get to use pornographic Eustace Tilly stationary, otherwise.

This is my 3rd sale, but my first sale in years, some of wich was going every week for months on end.

I honestly think selling two the two weeks after I dropped out of school gave me a completely unnatural confidence boost.

Holy Guacamole! Grats Whelk!

P.S. How about tee-shirts? They don't have exclusive rights, do they?
posted by Splunge 23 September | 19:02
After Charles Addams they basically buy the original art and all possible rights associated with it. For this they pay very well, but it is EVERYTHING.

Sometimes the unnatural boost of confidence is what it takes, esp. when one is too young to question it.

I have all my hard copies for the last several years and of course access to the horrible online archive. (Have they fixed that stupid page turny thing yet?) So you can post or send me the issues, yeah? Do they send you the issues? Do you get a free subscription and a calendar and a tote bag?

Hooray! Fantastic! So excited for you.

They don't even tell me when it's be published, let alone offer copies.

If you show up at the office however you can just walk away with as many copies as you can carry, apparently.

But you know which ones they are in?-- found them.

Good on you. I remember when you sold your first one - we had a celebratory lunch (along with Obscure Reference) at that cool pizza place in the Village.

Awesome, Whelky!
