I know a lot of people will say, "Man, it's been almost 6 years, what the fuck have you been doing that kept you so busy?" The simple reason for the delay is that like many Jews, I am in a captive breeding program. Being a good dad is always going to come before everything else for me, even this zine.
I think once you actually hold the zine in your hands, you'll say, "I wonder how long it would take me to do something like that." A long time. Too long.
I remember once when someone sat me down early in my career and explained to me how you can approach any job. You can only pick two out of three: fast, great and cheap. If you want fast and great, it will not be cheap. If you cheap and fast, it will not be great. If you want it great and cheap, it will not be fast. So, in a nutshell, that explains why each successive issue of my zine has been bigger, better, more colorful, more intricate and more involved. And it's also why the first one took a year, the second took a year and a half, the third took 2 years, the fourth took 3 years and the fifth took six years. Jesus, by the time I finish the next one I should be dead. Or old enough to be considered dead by everyone in the world of zines. This assumes that I am not there already.
You can order it now, plus with every order, you can buy any back issue for half price. Once I settle up with all of my Kickstarter backers, I will do a full inventory of remaining issues and then the prices will revert to their original prices, but I will number and sign the last issues until I am sold out. I am already completely sold out of issue #1, sorry.
