Tyler Page is preparing to release the first collection of his webcomic Nothing Better, but he needs preorders to make it happen:
Nothing Better Volume 1: No Place Like Home will be 200 pages in black and white, 6×9 inches, and contain chapters 1-7 along with bonus development materials and sketches not available online. The quote from the printer is around $3000 and I’m going to charge a paltry $15 cover price for the book. That translates into 200 books in order to pay for the printing. …
Nothing Better is the story of odd-couple college roommates Katt and Jane. Katt is the out-of-place atheist at a Lutheran college and Jane is questioning her belief in God for the first time as they struggle to adjust to their new life in college and each other. This is that time in your life when you’re finally on your own, experiencing newfound independence, dealing with all of life’s uncertainties — friends, parties, late night talks, love, sex, tests, bad cafeteria food and figuring out who you are. It’s the best time of your life… or is it?
One reader put it this way:
“It’s like Charlie Brown has grown up and gone to college. Granted, the actual topics have matured, and everyone drinks… but the tone is still the same: curiously existentialist, wedged in a field of normalcy.”
You can preorder special items: cover price, $15, will get you the book, signed. For an extra $10 ($25 total), your copy will come with a sketch. And for the book and a commissioned ink drawing, $45.
