HIGH CRIMES #2 lives and awaits your consumption.
Second issues are hard, maybe harder than first issues, but since I wrote this in tandem with #1, the two sort of co-exist in my head as one long, 26 page issue. The whole process of making the issue was madness, as we were frantically assembling it for Monkeybrain the day that #1 came out and I decided that 44 hours without sleep was probably a great idea at the time. So if it seems a bit more insane, a bit more unhinged, there’s probably a reason for it.
SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND (again):
1. HIGH CRIMES is a digital-only comic from Monkeybrain Comics. It’s available exclusively thru Comixology and your 99 cents allows you to read it on your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone (where technologically applicable).
2. I think this one is 16 pages total? That’s counting my essay and Ibrahim’s process pages, where he breaks down how he turns HIGH CRIMES from my scripts into finished pages. It’s pretty sexy.
3. Buying with the link above directly from Comixology’s website sends more money our way. Buying via iTunes sends less money our way (Apple gets their cut now) but, as ever, however you want to buy it is fine by us. We just want you to read it.
4. Free free free, we do this for free. Your 99 cents an issue is the only chance we stand at seeing some of that mythical money to pay bills and live life with you always hear about.
5. Right now you can pick up issues 1 and 2 for $1.98. That’s less than pretty much 90% of one issue of comics out there (I didn’t do the math on this, so please don’t correct me, it hurts my feelings).
6. Here’s what other people have to say about us, to show you that we’re not crazy: http://highcrimescomic.tumblr.com/post/43172700879/press-round-up
7. Tell your friends! Buy them a copy! I’ve been buying copies for strangers on twitter all week and it is easy as pie. If you like us and want to keep supporting us beyond buying the issues, tell someone else. Hell, even my mom reads it, and she threw all my comics away when I was a kid. If she can get into it, you must know someone who can too.
8. Thanks. Seriously. All the nice messages and support and blah blah blah, we really do love you for turning this little book we slaved on for months in secret into a thing. Now it’s all our thing, let’s spread the thing.
