We first met Doug Bratton at Comic Con 2010 and knew immediately that we wanted his book to be a part of the GoComics book club. We didn’t even have a book club at the time… but we knew. Now, months into the future, we have a book club and we’re ready to hitch our reputation to Doug’s star like Oprah did to James Frey. Although full disclosure, we’re smart enough to know Doug’s book is a complete fabrication. It’s a comic for crying out loud.
Now for a little insight on the book: Doug Bratton is an extremely talented cartoonist whose site Pop Culture Shock Therapy http://popculturecomics.com garnered him the fame and fortune that we all know is guaranteed to accompany a self-published web comic. Then recently, by an incredibly fortuitous twist of fate, a criminally insane homicidal lunatic began stalking Doug and his comic. We should all be so lucky. The psychopath clipped Doug’s comics from a local newspaper and placed them in a journal accompanied by his own lunatic rants. Long story short, Doug ended up with the journal and published the book to spite the stalker… which is always smart.
We have in our possession several copies of the book and would love to give them to our loyal GoComics members. The Deranged Stalker’s Journal of Pop Culture Shock Therapy is a comic cut-up of pop culture and celebrities, and we’d like to hear your brush with a celebrity, famous athlete or psychotic killer. Mine had to do with seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger drive by in his Hummer as I purposefully fell off my bike trying to make him stop to see if I was ok. Short story long, he didn’t.
So let’s hear your story, just reply below and if deemed worthy we will send you a book. Don’t forget to leave your GoComics username so we can track you down. We promise not to stalk you.
Finalist will receive an autographed copy of the new book and the person with the best story will receive a Grand Prize of an original and a signed print from the book.
