Official Press Release


by Alex Robinson

More Box Office Poison stories from Alex Robinson! What you might not

know is that there were several short stories featuring Sherman, Ed and

friends which were not collected in the giant Box Office Poison

collection. BOP! is an 88-page comic reprinting all of those short

stories including all of the SPX/Expo Anthology shorts, the "Box Office

Poison Kolor Karnival" (seen here in glorious black and white), and some

extra goodies. If you're a fan of the Harvey and Ignatz award nominated

graphic novel, then you know you won't want to miss this collection.
