No top shelf has prromised it never will if it came out in paper back. it would make it easier for kids to look at somthing that is very adult. as far as "retardedly " expensive Top Shelf sold out on three print runs at 75.00 Dollar and made a major profit to me that sound like intellegent Marketing not retarted the term makes you sound like a fourteen year old. Im' sorry if you are to cheap to buy something like this may it something you will have get on ebay good day
That's what appears to have happened; I have had this pre-ordered since the end of May was just notified today that it will not be shipping until the beginning of August. Even the product description says "Ships within 1 - 2 months." I find that just a tad ridiculous.
Incredible. This is about the third time that this has been delayed. I'm looking forward to this, as I have read most of Alan's work and have enjoyed much of it. I wonder why the delay? Maybe it's the recession... lol http://www.screwyourecession.ca/
I tried checking the Top Shelf Productions website; they claim that the book is in print, published this month (http://www.topshelfcomix.com/catalog.php?type=12&title=219). I hope they're right and that Amazon doesn't really take the one to two months to ship it; I was looking forward to reading it over vacation before moving back to campus.
I just got mine today. Also Amazon now list it as in stock so no more 1-2 month shipping hiatus.
For $30 I guess it's reasonable, but I don't know what to think of this book. This is not erotica. This is straight up raunchy porn with bad southern belle dialog. I love some of Alan Moore's stuff like Captain Britain and Swamp Thing but this book is just all around silly.
Did we read the same book, Mr. Nail? Raunchy porn? Most certainly NOT. Erotica? Assuredly. Yes, it's somewhere left of "Omaha, Cat Dancer" but its literary merit is undeniable. This isn't oh, say, S. Clay Wilson's "Checkered Demon" or "Feltch" Comix-- those truly *are* raunchy porn. Yes, it's certainly not going to be to everyone's tastes, but neither is Anne Rampling/Anne Rice's "Beauty" series (which it tangentally reminds me of).
I see that at least one very good used copy is currently selling for less than $18.00. I hope Mr. Peters sees it before someone else snaps it up.
