So, I have these stickers...

I had some stickers made. They look pretty good. I did it because I read an interview with Pete from Sticker Guy in an issue of The Atomic Heat Ray fanzine and I thought "hey! I should have some stickers made." And here we are.

Do people buy stickers? Is that a thing that happens? I can mail them out like they are a letter, so postage would only be 45¢ or, you know, one "forever" stamp. But it seems ridiculous to just mail one sticker, doesn't it? I don't know. So if you send me $1.50, I will mail you three of these stickers. Does that sound fair? I think it does. I hope so.

These stickers are made of vinyl, so you can put them on stop signs or city buses or cop cars or park benches and they won't wash away in the rain. Not that I'm saying you should put them on those things, mind you, I'm just noting that you totally could do it.

I'm not going to put the stickers on the Official Atomic Elbow Online Store because I can only put 5 items up at a time before I have to pay them and I am cheap, so you'll just have to send me a paypal to secondperiod[at]gmail[period]com. Is that okay? I really hope it is okay.

Box Brown talks about his Andre the Giant book.

Remember back in The Atomic Elbow #1 there was that awesome comic about Andre the Giant in Japan? You should remember this. Because it was awesome.

Anyway, that comic was part of a larger project that Box Brown has been working on for a long time. I'm really excited about it, and you should be, too.

Box Brown recently gave an interview to the website about his work on the Andre the Giant book, and it's great. You should go read it. And start saving your pennies so you can buy that Andre the Giant book when it comes out. It's about time we got an Andre biography that's actually good. That Andre book by Michael Krugman that WWE published in 2009 is a piece of garbage.

Anyway, click here to read the interview with Box Brown. He's great.

The Atomic Elbow at King of Trios

It shouldn't be any secret that Chikara's King of Trios is basically the greatest wrestling event of the year. I couldn't make it to Easton, PA this year for the event, but that doesn't mean that The Atomic Elbow would miss the show. Referee Bryce Remsburg (Issue 2) kindly offered to stock a few copies at the merchandise table.

Friend of The Atomic Elbow Jesse Mack (@JMaq on Twitter) sent me this photograph, which simultaneously makes me very happy and very jealous.

Thanks, Bryce and Jesse. Oh, and you probably want one of those "Da Bryce is Right" t-shirts, too. You are right to want this. If you're not at King of Trios, you can order yours from Gimmick$ Wrestling tees.

Hope you jerks in Easton are having fun.
