Sex Dog Ripped Off!

You remember my awesome creation, Sex Dog? The crime-fighting multimedia character (part of The Fearsome Foursome) that has been taking the world by storm since last August?

I don't think I'm telling tales out of school when I say that Sex Dog is perhaps the most successful multimedia character since Sherlock Holmes. A single strand of Sex Dog's pubic hair typically earns between 60 and 75 billion dog-dollars every month. Sometimes as much as 80 billion dog-dollars! Or even 82.

As is often the case with brilliant ideas, people want to get a piece of the action by ripping it off in comical booklets. As you know, there is a lot of money in publishing comical booklets nowadays. (Noted booklet author Chris Ware makes 5 or 6 dog-dollars every day. (And he spends it all on Barack!)) So you can imagine my non-surprise when I stumbled upon THIS comical booklet cover:

Obviously, someone else is getting very, very rich off of SUPERBLOG!!'s original Sex Dog concept. I hereby reproduce the relevant solicitation info so you know exactly what not to buy, and when:


Written, art and cover by Durwin Talon.
