Michel Plessix 1959~2017

We have just learned of the passing today of Michel Plessix, wonderful illustrator and adapter of The Wind in the Willows. His talent and the poetic charm of his work will be sorely missed by the comics community - and by his readers.

"All this he saw, for one moment breathless and intense, vivid on the morning sky; and still, as he looked, he lived; and still, as he lived, he wondered."

You leave the world a more wonderous place for your art. Sail on, Mr Plessix.

Monsterama - Aurora Models Kits.

Just a quick up~date really.

I have tried for a month using all the social media and other outlets I have access to and have worked like crazy to promote Black Tower Comics and Books.

There are currently (from May to 21 August 2017) 3~5, THOUSAND views per day of Comic Bits Online. Added all the other views together of BTCG items and you are looking at between 5~8,000 views a day.

All of this work, all of those views, has resulted in ZERO sales.

I can only shrug.

Maybe I need to lower the standard and quality of books because I have seen awful books and they sell copies.

It really is a terrible time to be in comic publishing or even publishing factual books.

I just cannot do any more and the idea of putting more weeks of hard work into pushing books....I'm getting no younger and I just don't want to waste more years on this.
I'm in limbo.
