I have a thousand things to do right now but I’m honestly a little burnt out at the moment. It’s gorgeous outside, I’m going to be done everything this weekend anyway (more or less), so I’ve decided to take today off except for emergencies and just catch up on my reading. So I thought I’d blog while I read.
IDEA: I think the news of Alvin Buenaventura deciding to “pick up the perodicals flag” and do floppy comics this year is kind of amazing and fun, I’m on board with that. I was actually just thinking that they should go ahead and print a regular comic-sized version of Kramers Ergot 7, now that it’s sold through its first (and maybe second?) printing in giant, beautiful, oversized hardcover. I think it would be amazing to print that and “make the material available” for all those people who pissed and moaned about there being a comic they could not afford, as if all comics should be made to their budget. I think a similar 3-pack of comic books that reprint Kramers 7 for $11.95, with no adjustments made for legibility at that size, would be amazing.
Actually, fuck that, they should print the whole thing at the D&Q “Petit Livres” size, a little smaller than a postcard. I think if you could turn spite into a commercial product, that would be its ideal form.
I wonder if that’s profitable?
