Wow, this sounds crazy similar to my fan experience around the same time period. Definitely going to have to buy these.

You know, reddit has a Weird Al subreddit (two in fact) and you could post something about these books there, just to get people interested (and buying). They'd love to hear about it!

reddit.com is the "front page of the internet".

27 apologies for bumping this, but I was just going through the boards and found this great topic. I'm definitely going to be placing an order for this soon. Thank you, Alicia, for finding this! I've read a few pages that were shown as samples and it seems like it'll be quite an emotional little journey and might hit home for me. :)

Ended up getting this the Monday after it shipped. Super-fast delivery! I still need to set up some time to read them. Kelly even wrote me a nice note on the receipt. Can't wait to check these out! :)

I NEED THESE COMICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :whoot: :oo :o

Maybe myself or someone else could write a graphic novel on growing up as a Gorillaz fan and the online fandom or other fandoms. Each fandom needs a graphic novel memoir like this. :whoot:

This is amazing...........

This reminds me that I still have to read these and the other book I bought from Kelly! She even drew something in and signed each book, and wrote something nice in there for me after reading The Legend of Yankopunk!

I'm currently looking through all the Midnight Star issues, but these are heading to the top of my reading backlog!

I feel that it is my duty to inform you all that Kelly now has a Kickstarter for the complete collection! You can find out more about it here. If you've thought about checking this series out in the past but never got around to it for some reason, now is the time!! Look how cool it is!! I'm definitely backing before April 30th and you should too, thank you.
