Hello, hello, you magnificent freaks!
We get asked all the time what programs Mortimer Glum uses to make his jaw-dropping artwork. The short answer is… all of them. His process is insanely tech-heavy and one of the key components in his arsenal is dying and needs to be replaced. The Cintiq drawing tablet that he uses for all his finishing work has had a great run, but it is not long for this world. We need to raise a little money for a replacement, to make sure Morty has all the tools needed to continue making the dementedly awesome artwork we’ve all come to love.
In celebration of Morty’s recent win as the Portland Phoenix’s 2014 Visual Artist of the Year (YAY!), we’ve made the truly terrible decision to let him do whatever he wants as a special variant Mystery Cover for Episode 2!
Here’s how it works…
Mortimer is free to do whatever he wants, unconstrained by boundaries of appropriateness or coherence. These are never going on shelves, so whatever feverish delusion his drug-addled mind conjures up is what we’ll send to the printers. I honestly have no idea what to expect, but I’m confident it will be deeply weird and quite likely offensive. We won’t release the artwork in advance. We want you to have the experience of opening this box, having no idea what you’re in for. It’s way more fun that way.
We’re only printing 50 of these Mystery Cover copies of EFJI #2. Ever.
Each copy is Signed and Numbered and is shipped bagged & boarded, bubble wrapped and boxed to ensure these reach you in great condition. As always, we don’t print on the traditional cheap comic book paper. These are on the same heavy, glossy paper you’ve comes to expect from EFJI.
The Mystery Cover comics will be $25, plus $4 US shipping (drop me a note for International rates). For an extra $25, Morty will sketch something inappropriate in your book. Additionally, everyone who pre-orders by June 15 will receive a Special Thanks Credit in this super limited-edition comic. Every dollar raised goes directly toward getting the Cintiq tablet we need to keep EFJI coming.
