This spring, illustrator and Edmonton expat Mike Winters published Cartoon Machine, a “best of” offering featuring many of his greatest creations: McScoop the News Dog, Pair Bond, Daggers & Dexterity, Edmonton Stories, Lynx Jinx and, of course, Wonderdick. It’s a beautiful little comic book, and has only been available to close friends and those living in the Toronto area. That is, until now.
I have in my possession a box of Cartoon Machine comics, as well as Wonderdick fridge magnets. Mike brought them to me a few weeks ago, and after realizing that he isn’t going to let me keep them until after he is shanked by the real-life Time Professor and their value goes through the roof, I have decided to share them with the fine citizens of Edmonton.
Issue One of Cartoon Machine is $10. Fridge magnets are $2. I have just under 100 copies of the comic, and the magnet, left. At this point, I am the purchase point. If you would like a copy of Cartoon Machine, or a magnet, you can either leave me a comment in this blog post, or message me (@agrabia) on Twitter, and I will arrange a way to get it to you. If you are the owner of a local comic book store, or any other fine Edmonton establishment, and would be willing to carry the book on commission, please contact Mike (@Mike_Wntrz on Twitter) or me.
If you live outside the Edmonton area and want a copy, too bad. You live in a dump and your hockey team sucks. Unfortunately, at this point, I can only sell comics to those who live in Edmonton. If you live outside Edmonton, and want a copy, get in touch with me in the ways I’ve already listed, and I’ll see what I can do. I make no guarantees.
