So, Do You Want a New Orby Shirt?

After asking the question, and getting an amazing positive response on Facebook, I decided to put together a little survey to help focus what should be reissued from the "Orbowear" store for all the good boys & girls everywhere.

Not only that, but I decided to ask those folks who are ready for Geritol and Depends what kind of Fun stuff they might want to buy before they are shipped off the the old folks home by their bratty kids (ED NOTE: you know, old folks have LOTS OF MONEY - so, be nice to them or they'll cut you out of the will).

Please fill out the survey, share your e-mail with me (I promise I won't spam you or sell it to your ex) and I'll keep you up to date.

As always, thanks for the support and let other Orbit fans know in 2015 we will celebrate Orby's 25th birthday in style!

Digging Through the Past

As I stated before, the whole saga started in early 2011. But, by Summer I was knee deep into collecting the things that would make this book possible: names, contacts, ephemera, and, of course, all the issues of the various magazines.

Most of the archive had been resting for several years inside the storage units of Jerry Vile. Between art being sent in for The Dirty Show, his own creations, collectibles picked up at various garage sales, sat in the climate controlled confines of a Ferndale self-storage what I had come for - "The Archive".

Suggestions - Give them now or never! 

Just got word from my editor that all my selections for reprints must be into them by August 15th, 2014 - just over a month from now. 

So, if you have any suggestions as to full articles or pieces that are absolute musts for this book - please leave them in the comments.
