This is “Armorio’s Space Bar.” I know what you’re thinking: “You’ll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." You’re right!
Ugh wtf Risograph why are you not scanning the cover right? See the bottom sheet is my original, and the sheet on top is what’s getting spit out.
Actually I finally worked around this problem just now. I don’t know why it was happening but it has something to do with the Risograph not reading the large black area.
Here’s where you can see the last thing I drew on the book. You might notice that the first batch had a different character peaking out on the back cover. That’s fun, right?
Today I will attach the cover to the collated guts (I think that’s a word that means: the non-cover pages inside). Tomorrow I’ll crop them and send orders out in the mail. BTW I got sick last weekend but I am glad that my timeframe seems to be working out well. Yes, I’m cutting it close. But… I think it’s gonna be okay…
SF#2 - it’s a new zine, IMO you should get it!! Debuting at SPX, and you can order it, too.
Basically, it’s about a little boy named Hupa Dupa whose parents were killed by Space Pirates, so he gets adopted by the Space Fleet Scientific Foundation Special Forces and joins a galactic war. The story is inspired by Matsumoto Leiji’s great space opera manga Queen Millenia.
"SF leader Ace and newest SFSFSF member Hupa Dupa, whose parents were killed by terrorist space pirates during a surprise attack on Earth, are on a mission to find Admiral Condor Stechschulte inside Planet D, the dark & labyrinthian mineral resource of the Space Fringes, inhabited by weird slime tube aliens and controlled by a deep-mining mega-corporation of space smugglers - enemies to SF and allies of the Pirates…”
SF#2, coming soon.
