Hello!

My name is Larime Taylor, and I write, draw, tone, and letter a book with my mouth, as I was born with Arthrogryposis and am in a wheelchair. I'm currently talking to several publishers, and am also considering self-publishing options. One way or another, this series will be available soon.

I'd like to share with you some previews of issues #1 and #2, and links to the entire issues. Here's the cover of #1 to get you started.

In PREACHER: THE STORY OF YOU-KNOW-WHO, Garth Ennis gave the origin story of Arseface. It is one of the few elements of PREACHER that date the series. (Another: In PREACHER #31, a flashback of Jesse shows he got to see Bill Hicks perform live and talk to him in person.) If they ever get around to adapting PREACHER as a movie or cable series, Arseface's origin will have to be updated, unless the movie/series is actually set in the mid to late 1990s.
In a very weird way, the Arseface origin story appears to be Garth Ennis' take on Dan Savage's "It Gets Better Project" about 15 years before the "It Gets Beter Project."
11 pages of a 50 page story after the cut. Garth Ennis wrote it, so the F-word and other curses are used a lot. The art is by Richard Case.

I picked up the Dollhouse season 2 DVD box set when it came out Tuesday, and it came bundled with a 21-page mini-comic from Dark Horse. I have scanned for you 7 pages plus the cover.

For those of you who didn't watch the show (RIP, Dollhouse), it was a Joss Whedon trip about a secret L.A. facility in which Actives have their consciousnesses wiped, original personalities saved to hard drive, and neurotech genius Topher designs and uploads a new personality for what they call "engagements" - life coaching, super-ninja action, or romance, whatever. When the engagements are over the new persona is wiped, leaving them in a passive "doll" state. We get to know the staff of the L.A. Dollhouse and about a half-dozen Dolls, chief among them Echo (Eliza Dushku) who quickly shows signs of having more going on in the cranium than Dolls are supposed to. This makes her more and more important as the series goes on.

Season 1 was supposed to end with ep 13, a series-capper in case the show wasn't renewed, but Fox declined to air it. "Epitaph One" was included in the s1 DVD set as an extra, and it quickly became a critical favorite, which helped Dollhouse get its second season. A "10 Years Later" flash-forward, it showed a L.A. ravaged by an apocalypse brought about by the Dollhouse tech. Most everyone has been mindwiped by a signal carried through phone waves, leaving them either "dumbshows" (dolls, basically) or "butchers." A few "actuals" are just trying to survive, and we follow a small band of them into what remains of the Dollhouse. There they learn through the chair some of how the apocalypse came about; people start getting killed; one of their band turns out to be not what they appear; and they load up a body with Echo's original personality Caroline to lead them to the cast-led Resistance. In Season 2 the L.A. crew comes to realize this apocalypse could be the inevitable end-point of their actions and work to prevent it; the series ended with "Epitaph Two," a return to the 10-years-later reality, which comes to pass despite their efforts.

The mini-comic is a slice-of-life following several characters through the events of 10:07 a.m., when the Neuropocalypse struck L.A.
Dollhouse: Epitaphs )
Story by series scribes Jed Whedon and Marissa Tsncharoen, art by Cliff Richards. What'cha think? I'd buy a series following from this - though Dark Horse's work continuing the Buffy and Angel series haven't really wowed me.
