As for the official process of procuring, you can go about it one of two ways, depending on which of the following you believe I deserve more:


That's right, at a whopping $3.50 an issue (plus fifty cents for shipping), I'll be rolling in dough (which will subsequently be spent on ale and whores). Sure, you'd rather keep that money (not to mention ale and whores) for yourself, but I know your cannot resist my awesome mind powers! Go forth, and purchase!

For those of you concerned about suspicious family, friends, or roommates, every copy of Venus Envy Comics is shipped in a nondescript brown office envelope for your safety. Should the package be intercepted, the secretary will disavow all knowledge of the comic.

As we have a very small mailing department, please allow 4 to 8 weeks for delivery.

Bah! Who needs cash when you're a recognized household name? VanGough didn't need to be financially successfully to be immortal, and neither do I, so if you're more interested in getting the word about Venus Envy (and lil' old me) than about me being rich, just follow these simple steps:

1.) Print out this handy flyer

2.) Go to your local queer bookstore, independent comic shop, or Christian Science Reading Room (its a little known fact the Christian Scientists actually adore my work and everything about me).

3.) Give the local business the aforementioned flyer and casually mention how you'd love to get a copy of this comic book, and how it's so funny, insightful, and topical, that anyone smarter than a dead and rotting chipmunk will want to buy a copy, too, once they've seen it.

4.) Wait a week or so, then repeat. Continue to do so until their either say "They've been ordered and will be here soon" or "This is a restraining order."

5.) Actually BUY the book. If you push and push for them to carry it, but then don't even bother to pick up a copy, it makes you look cheap and deceptive, and while I can tolerate (heck, even appreciate) one or the other among my followers, I can't condone both.
