ASP Book – Look At It, Look.on February 28, 2013 at 7:00 am
Q: So, uh, what is this thing exactly?
A: It’s a “book,” which is a physical collection of data, predating the internet by nearly 100 years!
Q: What’s in the book?
A: It’s the first ever collection of ASP comics! 180+ handpicked comics from January 2009 to February 2011.
Q: What if my favorite strip is before January 2009 or after February 2011?
A: For our first book we feel like this selection is our “best foot forward.” Plus, if this book does well enough, we’ll likely print an “ASP Classics” book in the future.
Q: Why should I buy this thing? All of the comics are already on the internet.
A: Oh shit.
Q: But seriously, what’s so special about it?
A: Well, not only does it have a hefty dose of comics, but there are 14+ pages of never-before-seen bonus content that Wes and Tony put together solely for the production of this book. So that’s a start!
Q: Bonus content? Like what?
A: Stuff like behind-the-scenes materials, detailed concept sketches, and rejected comics!
Q: What about alt texts and the hidden comics?
A: …what hidden comics? But yes, the alt texts are all in there, including an appendix for the hidden comics. So it’s pretty damn complete.
Q: Plus it’s a good way to support you guys, right?
A: Sure. Good point. Thanks?
Q: Also I was thinking this would make a pretty good gift, too. You can basically open to a random page of this thing and be entertained.
A: That’s true. Yeah. Cool.
Q: And the cover looks great.
A: Okay, yeah, thank you for noticing. Anyway we…
Q: Awesome! So how much does it cost and how do I order this thing?
A: Uh, it’s $18 plus shipping, and if you want a signed copy with a custom message and sketch in there, that’s only $6 more (!) Check out the link below to Topatoco for order details!
(But seriously, this book turned out really great and we’re proud of it. Most of all, thanks for reading our comics. They are silly weird things and we couldn’t be happier making them.)
