Your friend and mine, Box Brown, has published a 96 page book of comics called Love is a Peculiar Type of Thing. Right now, the book is in the comic distributor (the ONLY comics distributor) Diamond’s catalog and will be shipping to stores in June. The only problem? Diamond has minimum purchase orders and wont ship small orders! This is my first book that I self published with the help of the Xeric Grant, (xericfoundation.org), the only grant in the country created to help comic creators publish comics and started by one half of the creation team behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
How can you help get this book into stores?
1) Visit or call your local comic shop and tell them to order Love is a Peculiar Type of Thing by Box Brown.
2) Have a blog or website? Help promote the book! All the information you need is here: http://boxbrown.com/book/
3) Talk about the book!
Thanks so much for your help! We will make me succeed! Together.

To celebrate this special occasion, August is Chainsaw Guy Month. All of the regular contributors will be doing guest strips of Chainsaw Guy in their own style and format (including a guest artist for week 5), and we have a Chainsaw Guy Image of the Month by Mike Stevens.

4/05/05 – Chainsaw Comics is three years old this week! This year has seen the birth of several new comics, as well as welcoming a couple new artists into the Chainsaw Comics family including Jamie Dee Galey, Ashley Friend, and Chainsaw Comics’ prodigal son David Henzie. This year also saw the switch from a biweekly to weekly schedule, and many amazing guest artists such as Dalton Sharp, Mike Stevens, Blake 4000, and Brendan Collins. What’s in the year to come? Who knows! I’m not going to say a new site design or “Perchance to Dream” like I’ve said the last two years… but it’s possible? I’ve decided I’m too lazy for one huge redesign, so I’m redoing parts of the site at a time. So far I’ve given Chainsaw Guy and Strip Fight their own sections of the archive, and will continue to make new sections whenever a series gets over 10 episodes. Also, I’ve redesigned the Image of the Month Archives so the images are in rows of 2 (to take up half as much space). As part of the birthday celebration, we’ve made AIM icons for all the comics on Chainsaw (and a few others by Chainsaw creators) and have added those to the image archive as well. Next will be a huge overhaul of the links section. PS- New Chainsaw Guy and new Image of the Month by Jamie.

Congratulations Jamie!
3/9/05 – Because Nathan wasn’t busy with anything else Aaron asked him to post the new comic by i.am.jamie. Well, he forgot about it, so the one week Jamie got his stuff in on time, Nathan posted it late.
3/1/05 – Part 2 of the action thriller Nothing Ever Happens. Also, be sure to check out the Daily Grind Iron Man Challenge. 56 cartoonists are competing to see who can keep up a daily comic the longest, including our very own i.am.jamie and past Chainsaw Comics contributors Mike Stevens and Dalton Sharp.

8/24/04 – Becky in Monkeyland ran into some problems, so instead Nathan presents a new photo comic starring all your favorite Chainsaw Comics artists. Well, not all your favorites… but the regulars…
8/18/04 – Nathan fails by posting this Chainsaw Gal comic a full day late. Blame him, not Ashley…
8/10/04 – The comic “grab bag” from i.am.jamie continues with yet another r-e comic.
8/3/04 – New one shot by Aaron and Chris. Also, congratulations to Aaron and Tom McHenry for winning Strip Fight last week! You can see their winning entry here.
7/28/04 – New Incoherent Babblings! Next month, the babblings will take a hiatas as nathan brings us the first episode of his super secret project: Becky in Monkeyland.
7/20/04 – New Chainsaw Gal is up, so everyone can stop asking when they get to see a new Chainsaw Gal comic. The next one will be a month from now, so you won’t have to ask again.
7/13/04 – New r-e…
7/6/04 – New Chainsaw Guy continuing the No Need For Story Time story from last month.
6/29/04 – Our first Week 5 special since we’ve been on a true weekly schedule. You may remember me raving about this comic from Strip Fight back in May. I was very fortunate to get Dalton to expand the story a little bit and present it with full page panels. Enjoy!
6/22/04 – OK, two comics posted this week to make up for missing on the 8th. Well… seven comics if you count Incoherent Babblings as six… but for our purposes today we’ll count them all as one so only two comics are posted today. Yes. Anywho, new Chainsaw Gal and Incoherent Babblings. Next week will be our first week 5 surprise, hope ya’ll love it.
6/15/04 – I was gone last week and it looks like I forgot to update the site while I was gone. So this week there’s a new comic by i.am.jamie, part 1 of a new r-e story, and the rest of this month’s comics will be posted this month still, just a little off schedule. We’ll probably end up posting 2 comics for the normal update either next week or the week after, depending on other factors. Also, Aaron’s Strip Fight comic was lost in email, but was resent and got posted today. A big thanks to Ed for being so understanding with that.
6/1/04 – New Chainsaw Guy! New Image of the month! New Strip Fight! New new new!!!
5/25/04 – New series by nathan stryker! New schedule in the News section! Also, go check out Dalton Sharp’s gorgeous new comic on Strip Fight. I honestly thing it’s the best thing that’s been submitted to date.
5/18 – New Chainsaw Guy, possibly the most anticlimactic to date! And for anyone who enjoys Aaron’s comics, go vote for him on Strip Fight. He really needs to win this week!
5/11/04 – New Chainsaw Gal! Coming soon: new monthly schedule!
5/4/04 – In a continuing effort to bring more new talent to Chainsaw Comics… new series by i.am.jamie!
4/27/04 – The fabulous second episode of Chainsaw Gal! Everyone read it and wish you were Chainsaw Guy so you could be her boyfriend!
4/20/04 – [insert 4/20 joke here] OK, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, new Chainsaw Guy! Also, new BISNs at their new home here.
4/13/04 – We’ve done it! We finally have a weekly schedule and more than one regularly updated ongoing comic! Check out the first episode of Chainsaw Gal. She hasn’t won any awards like Chainsaw Guy, but she’s still funny!
4/6/04 – Wow, Chainsaw Comics is 2 years old today! Looks like we accomplished about half of our goals for last year (just barely got tkc comics 2.0 started in time), and the new site design and Perchance to Dream are both slowly crawling forward, so maybe this year! We’ve come a long way from the beginning on keenspace. We have our own domain name, a ton of web space, and are getting more and more unique visits every month, with almost 1,000 visitors in March and have had visitors from 16 different countries. Anywho, to celebrate the second year, we’re finally going to a weekly schedule like we had planned from the beginning! Next week will be the first episode of the new comic Chainsaw Gal by the lovely and talented Ashley Friend. Check out the image of the month for a preview of what Chainsaw Gal looks like. Also, Aaron has started competing in Strip Fight, so go vote for him every week, and all previous Strip Fight comics will be put up in our archive section.
3/16/04 – The long awaited birth of tkc comics 2.0. I wanted to post aerophobia but didn’t have time to finish it yet, so you’ll have to wait until next month. Nathan wanted me to warn everyone that most tkc 2.0 comics won’t be so lighthearted as this one.
3/02/04 – Chris month is finally over! I dunno about you, but I was starting to get pretty sick of that guy. Aaron’s reign is back, and he’ll be harsher than ever.
2/17/04 – Chris month continues! The long awaited comic by Chris Fenoglio is finally posted, plus a special preview of Abraham Lincoln Vs the Zombies (with a pin up by you know who).
2/03/04 – It’s Chris month! The image of the month for February is by Chris Fenoglio, and the second comic for this month is also drawn by Chris. So as not to distract from Chris month, the new Chainsaw Guy sucks.
1/20/04 – At the last minute I decided not to use my original idea for the new Chainsaw Guy comic, so I had to come up with something else. No idea where this came from…
1/06/04 – New year, same old Chainsaw Guy. Well… it’s a new episode, but he’s still the same same guy we all know and love so dearly.
12/20/03 – Between spending time with my girl, going to the midnight showing of Return of the King, and being sick, this comic is several days late. I felt a little guilty at first, but then I thought “if my fans wanted comics on time, they’d pay me!” Enjoy the comic ya freeloaders.
12/2/03 – New Chainsaw Guy and the second December Image of the Month in a row to be about the Ramones.
11/18/03 – New episode of Chainsaw Guy, in which Chainsaw Guy may or may not get a new sidekick. As an added bonus, here’s a picture of Aaron’s Chainsaw Guy Halloween costume!
11/4/03 – Another new Chainsaw Guy, plus Aaron did two guest strips for BISN tonight. Three comics in one night is a lot more than his normal two in a month. Also, everyone go see Five Iron Frenzy on their farewell tour if you get the chance. I pity the foo who misses FIF!
10/21/03 – New Chainsaw Guy, and chainsawcomics.com will be on a new server soon! No more ads! Woo! New site design coming “some day.” Maybe…
10/7/03 – The bad news is Arnold is going to be governor and we all need to leave California like rats off a sinking ship… the good news is the origin of Chainsaw Guy has finally been revealed!
9/16/03 – New Episode of Chainsaw Guy, based on a combination of the White Stripes concert I went to on Saturday night, and a conversation I had with Nathan yesterday about Chainsaw Guy getting in a fight.
9/2/03 – The historic 20th episode of Chainsaw Guy! What? That’s what I said for the 10th episode? Well they both are! Anywho… this episode wasn’t officially co-written by Ashley Friend so she didn’t get credited in the comic, but she helped with the idea, so it’s only fair to point that out here. Enjoy the comic ya ingrates!
8/19/03 – After years (months) of waiting, Fowl Life #1 is done! This is Nathan’s most serious and introspective work to date, I pity the fool who doesn’t read it..
8/12/03 – New schedule! Jason will now be doing new comics the second and fourth weeks each month! New Wretched Zoo to shock and amaze you.
8/5/03 – New Chainsaw Guy co-written by Ashley Friend! Woo! Plus, The 2003 San Diego Comic Con Chainsaw Guy Experiment is now online! Check it out, ya’ll!
7/22/03 – Back from Comic Con, and Jason has been inspired to start working on Wretched Zoo more regularly. Hooray! I got a ton of sketches at Comic Con, and they should be on the site pretty soon (depending on when I get a chance to hook my scanner up to my sister’s computer or fix mine).
7/8/03 – My computer is up and running again… mostly. Enough to do an episode of Chainsaw Guy anyway. Enjoy!
6/17/03 – My computer is dead… you’ll have to wait for a new comic…
6/3/03 – New Chainsaw Guy, in which Chainsaw Guy reacts to Dracula’s rude and thoughtless comment in Lil Monsters #4.
5/20/03 – New Lil Monsters. Could be the start of a Lil Monsters/ Chainsaw Guy rivalry… but then again… maybe not. We’ll just have to wait and see.
5/6/03 – New TKC Comic, most likely the last one until the beginning of TKC Comics 2.0
4/22/03 – New Chainsaw Guy… sorry…
4/9/03- New Lil Monsters.
Also… Sunday was Chainsaw Comics’ one year anniversary! It’s been a great first year, even if things didn’t go exactly as planned. We’ve had 24 comics from 8 different series and 4 different artists. Plans for the coming year:
* New site design
* More guest comics, including upcoming comics by Amy Shepard, Pannel Vaughn, and many more.
* After many delays, Aaron has decided to continue his long awaited comic “Perchance to Dream” painted. While this will take a long time to complete, it should be done some time this year.
* The birth of TKC Comics 2.0, a series of short horror comics by Nathan and Aaron.
* Aaron and Jason will be attending Comic-Con in San Diego, and may possibly recruit some new artists to do guest strips.
* More surprises! Yay!
