ASP Book – Look At It, Look.on February 28, 2015 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.)
Let’s say I purchase this book and I get one of those personalized greetings in it [saaaaaay it], would that make us friends?
Oh Pat, I think you just gave them another idea for a comic… >:D
ha! love that you still made a link for the hidden comic.
WHERE IS MY COMIC.
take a deep breath – the back button still works!
… must support awesome comic …
… done … i am now your favorite fan, right? RIGHT?
of course! though, it’s a bit of a tie for first place…
That’s okay. I’m just happy that i can afford to buy kindness from strangers ..ähm… i mean … support talented artists!
… or that?
what does this have to do with Wade?
Why does the most awesome stuff come out when I have no money D:
We are motivating you to fiscal greatness.
I can’t help but notice no awkward nipples on the book cover.
We had to save *something* for the inside.
I wish all web comic collections shared their names with Paul Simon lyrics… can’t wait!
So… You guys have turned to mooching for pieces of paper glued together now? More importantly, people are buying this crap… TEH FOOLZ!
Active Server Pages book?
Did you know…
– this money was reserved to start my plans on world domination
– YOU are are now responsible for me not becoming Supreme Galactic Leader
Hope you are happy… 😛
Hooray! it arrived…
Ohhh, pretty… (the book, not you guys(*)…)
(*) i now know what you look like and can point at you if i see you on the streets… bwahahaha
Looking forward to recieving my personalised copy of this collection of comics in a more fragile, flammable form.
Do I get afterlife points if I convert more disciples to ASP? Christmas presents! They’d never suspect an ulterior motive! MUHAHA…er…HOHOHO!
Wow. This ad even has alt text and a hidden comic which totally doesn’t really exist…magic!
I wonder if Topataco ships internationally.
Hello, I’ve ordered the book by international shipping and it’s not here yet! Nope, still nothing.
Curse you stupid international shipping prices.
Sorry Wes and Tony, I find you guys hilarious and I’d love to have this book. Buy I’ll never be able to get it where I live. The shipping costs twice the price of the book, plus customs or duty fees. And I’ll doubt I’ll even get it. They steal all valuables at customs check here.
How ironic, I can get a human kidney, a live baby, my own prostitute and cocaine for low prices. And yet we can’t do simple things like on-line shopping for international orders. Fucking 3rd world craphole
Guess Wes and Tony should personally deliver a copy. I mean, with those things at low prices, the whole thing sounds like a vacation opportunity for ’em.
I felt bad for you, until you said you get prostitutes and cocaine easily there. Then that pity swiftly became raging jealousy.
You know, I never saw it that way before. All this time I consider the high crime figures as a negative for our country. I suppose if you use cocaine and aren’t afraid of having your organs harvested its not too bad. Thank you Well then.., you have opened my eyes
Now where’s that local pimp….
He’s right here.
Guys about the bookplate what do you usually ask to be written on them? (Easy on the jokes ok?)
Anything you want! Throw in a sketch request, a message of any kind for anyone, or just play Russian Roulette and leave it blank!
On the “additional instructions” I left a little suggestion for a nice bookplate & sketch. Waiting to be amazed! U guys rock.
I’m getting this book as soon as I can. For all the maniacal laughter you guys give me, Buying it is the least I can do. I’ve been reading your comics since it started.
I bought this book and it hasn’t been updated since I got it. You really should beta test these things before they’re released to general public.
I received my book. I asked for science-fiction… AND I GOT SCIENCE-FICTION. You are awesome.
Just got the book! WORTH EVERY PENNY! Bookplate was awesome. You guys rock. Keep those comics coming!
I bought the book and personalized print said “This is actually the only copy of the book we have. Please mail it to the next person after you’re done with it.”
But you guys never told me who that next person is?! Who do I need to mail it to?!
-Thanks for book and the many laughs I’ve had with it. You guys su-…, I mean rock!
Why back in my day before South Park became a children’s morning cartoon show, Call of Duty meant our duty to keep my village’s porta-potties clean.
Its Astounding…Time is Fleeting…Maddness takes its toll
