We’ve been quiet and decidedly un-posty here at Satellite Sam World HQ but don’t let that stop you from checking the book out today, either in stores on at comixology. there’s a midtown variant, too, and below is an Image Expo exclusive that went out yesterday in San Francisco.
The orders were amazingly strong and reviews are coming in already — we’re quite frankly over the moon. You are all warped, dark, secretly weird little monsters and we love every single last one of you.
The asks are open and your correspondence is welcome at email@example.com.
“Larry White and I went into Wannamaker’s toy department and tried to find something that we could gussie up to look like a raygun. This old-maid sales lady said, “We don’t carry guns.” Next to the toy department was auto accessories, so I said to Larry, “Let’s see what we can find over there.” The opticon scillometer was made from a combination of a spark plug, a muffler, a rear-view mirror, and an ashtray. I made it with my own two hands. We created a lot of props out of automobile parts.”—

“For seven years, I never took a rest. When I went on vacation, I took a typewriter and mailed my scripts to New York. I wrote every word for seven yeras, and after that I had had enough. After I left, it went on tape, and the writers who succeeded me got residuals.”—
Eddie Kean, the only writer for the first seven years of HOWDY DOODY. He later became a jazz pianist in Michigan.
