That's the Ticket!

Here's a fine entry on the Portland blog written by Zach concerning Ticket.

With the eminent release of Ticket (Friday! July 11) I feel it as good a time as any to re-post Zach's entry here. Enjoy!

This weekend, I got stopped by an officer of the law. He knocked on my window and asked for my license and registration. Then he said, “Mr. Franzen, the speed limit here is 45 miles per hour. You were going 57. Any reason you’re in such a hurry?” I looked at him and said, “Yes, I wanted to open up my ‘99 Taurus just to see what she could do, and I decided to push it to the limit and top things off at the blinding speed of 57 miles per hour. It’s what I’m forced to do if I’m to catch up with destiny!” Of course, I didn’t say that, and instead of getting a ticket, I got a warning.

Suppose I really wanted a ticket? Well I’ll tell you this much, I wouldn’t get one from the fine folks who serve and protect. Instead, I’d get one from Portland Studios.

Ticket
by Cory Godbey goes on sale soon. (This Friday! -- editor's note)


Ticket is a passion project from Cory. He did it at night at home after the client work he did after work. Yes that sentence is accurate. It features Lily von Silvie Lenore, a character he introduced in a small book he made for his wife while they were dating. Ticket is its postlude.

Because print costs are so expensive, we only have a limited run. We should be able to sell a few before heading to Comic-Con, where we hope to sell out (In the sense of “selling out of copies” not in the sense of becoming sell-outs). If you think you might be interested in a Ticket of your own, be sure to check back soon for details.

Here we go. Semi-relatedly, I've got one more surprise before Friday as well. I'll post it shortly.

Nothing huge, huge, but it's enough. Check back periodically, if you like. Ɯberraschung!
