Talk about giving LATE thanks. Recently, I got a chance to listen to one of my NEXT 100 brethren, JAY POTTS from the Online Hurt Locker known as THE WORLD OF HURT, giving an interview over at SIDEBAR (Check it out here). I was blown away by his mention of yours truly and PLANET GRIFFIN among one of the
'Original Motivators' of his web comic when he first began--- which in turn drew in everyone from WARREN ELLIS, DWAYNE McDUFFIE, and even AIN'T IT COOL NEWS (People who should've been up on Jay's work SOONER). Jay even makes it a point of highlighting another NEXT 100 alum, JOHN ASTON of RACHEL RAGE fame. (Who, by the way, has another RACHEL RAGE OGN coming REAL soon!)
For those of you who haven't met Jay, you should (when he finally drops the long awaited THRILLSEEKERS OGN, you'll wish you the signing line wasn't SO LONG to get your chance), for those of you who have slept on the website, time to wake that ass up (Click the banner, check the link), and for those of you who thought PLANET GRIFFIN was blowing smoke up your ass when THE NEXT 100 started as 'The Next Generation of Future Hotness in the world of Independant Creators', the time has come for you to FINALLY realize that the Infamous RodBuddah has taken to the mountaintop to spread The NEW INDY COMIC GOSPEL!
THE WORLD OF HURT, OLDE TOWNE COMIX, ART NINJA STUDIOS, GHETTOMANGA, ILL ART STUDIOS, ARIE MUNROE, VIVID PRODUCTIONS, and, of course, PLANET GRIFFIN, are only the beginning--- tune in for THE NEXT 100 additions in 2010!
