Maybe you read my comic Theater Hopper. Maybe you don't. But if you do, I have big news.
That image to the left is a tiny preview of the cover to my first book Theater Hopper: Year One. It goes on sale next Monday, April 17 and I'm really excited about it. The book will sell for $18.95, is 200 pages long in full color and collects the first 156 strips from the first year the site was online.
There are also 11 guest strips from that era and a 6 part crossover comic that I did with Carrington Vanston from Movie Punks.
Probably the best feature about the book is the commentary for each of the 156 strips. I give tell stories about how I got the comic off the ground as well as share tips and tricks I picked up that helped me refine my art and writing. If you've ever wondered what it's like to start your own web comic, this book will fill in a lot of gaps.
Of course, what I'm REALLY excited about is our new STREET TEAM!
"You have a street team, Tom?" you ask. Yes I do! And the plan couldn't be more simple. If you participate and complete the task, you'll be handsomely rewarded!
All you have to do on Monday, April 17 is buy yourself a copy of the book. When that's done, get five of your friends to do the exact same thing. Once everyone has submited their order, e-mail me and I'll check the names against the order list. If everything looks good, I'll send you A $20 GIFT CERTIFICATE TO FANDANGO.COM! If you think about it, getting that gift certificate is kind of like getting your copy of the book for free!
And to sweeten the deal, the first 25 people to complete the task will win A FREE THEATER HOPPER T-SHIRT!
If that sounds like a good deal to you, visit the Theater Hopper Street Team page for full participation details. I've also included talking points you can use to help convince your friends and a four page sample of the book to let them know what they're getting into! And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to e-mail me.
Putting together this book has been a long time in the making for me, so I'm really excited to be putting it out there. I hope you guys are excited about it to and come to the site on Monday, April 17 to show your support!
