Official Press Release
Ethan Nicolle, creator of the critically acclaimed Chumble Spuzz, will be one of the many talented creators signing at the SLG Publishing booth at the San Diego Comic-Con. Featured in Wizard Magazine’s Indie Watch 2008, Chumble Spuzz continues to gain buzz for its first volume, Kill the Devil. Now, SLG Publishing is proud to announce that volume two, Pigeon Man and Death Sings the Blues, is off to the presses and will be available just in time for the San Diego Comic-Con. Nicolle will be available at the SLG booth to sign copies of both volumes of Chumble Spuzz. “I love Comic-Con. It’s something I look forward to every year,” says Nicolle, “last year I at Comic-Con I handed out promotional stuff for Chumble Spuzz. This will be my first year selling the actual bookâ€”along with volumeâ€”and possibly meeting people who have read the book already.” Nicolle will be signing at the SLG Publishing Booth (#1815) all four days of Comic-Con from 11:00AM-12:30PM and 2:00PM-3:30PM
In the second volume of Chumble Spuzz, join Gunther and Klem in their next set of adventures as they deal with…The Pigeon Man? Who is this feral gentleman and what does he have to do with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? Why doesn’t anybody stop Klem’s obsession with adopting demented pets? Will Gunther teach his new robot the true meaning of love? You’ll have to check out the second volume of Chumble Spuzz, Pigeon Man and Death Sings the Blues to find out all these answers (and some you weren’t even expecting!) But wait! There’s more! The second part of this collection features everybody’s favorite drinking buddy, Death as Gunther and Klem somehow find themselves responsible for cheering the guy up. It seems that after all these years of pain and suffering, Death has developed an acute sense of guilt and decides to call it quits. It’s up to our favorite pair of anthropomorphically ambiguous heroes to bring him back from the light and make him see the dark side again!
