TwoMorrows sent out the following promotion:
If you like comics fan mags, boy, are you gonna hate this! It’s COMIC BOOK NERD, PETE VON SCHOLLY’s side-splitting parody of the fan press, including our own mags! Experience the magic(?) of such publications as Whizzer, the Comics Urinal, Ultra Ego, Comics Buyer’s Guise, Bagged Issue!, Comic Book Meatmarket, Scrawl!, Comic Book Artiste, Purviews, and more, as we unabashedly poke fun at ourselves, our competitors, and you, our loyal readers!
There was more, but it was all the same kind of thing. It’s planned for June at $8.95 US. My question is: why?
Presumably only people who already buy and read these magazines are going to see this, let alone buy it. It seems like something with no natural audience that will annoy the only people likely to think about purchasing it. $9 is a lot to pay to be made fun of.
