As You Were #2 got a positive review in the new MRR! But, don’t worry, they did single my comic out as not so great.

It's out! It's finally out!
As always, you're free to order them directly from Silver Sprocket, but, if I may, I know a lot of you have been balking at the post office's recent shipping cost increases and how this affects your mailorder habits. SO! If you live anywhere near a major city with an even halfway cool comic book or record store or infoshop or WHATEVER, what you can and should do is give them a call, ask them to order you a copy, and you can support this zine AND a local business at the same time. If you live in the Twin Cities, call up Big Brain Comics or Extreme Noise Records. If you live in Baltimore, call up Atomic Books, if you live in Austin go ahead and choose between Austin Books & Comics or Monkeywrench Books. You follow? Don't fuck with Amazon, that's just Wal Mart on the internet, you're supposed to be above that. IF THEY ASK, you can tell them the zine is distributed through LAST GASP and REVOLVER, and they should be able to get you a copy without any shipping fees.
OVERSEAS READERS! Our UK and Germany distros should have copies of this in stock within the next couple weeks. I will come back with an update so you'll know where to go for a copy without having to fuck with crazy overseas shipping.
Folks, I really can't thank you enough for all the support and positive response this series has gotten so far. We have no plans of stopping or slowing down, I have a whole list of new contributers to invite (along with the returning cast you know and love) for #3... I'm so glad at how this whole project has turned out. Thanks!

A six-page comic I made with Amanda for AS YOU WERE #1
(which is still available and which you should definitely pick up)
Holy crap, the Onion AV Club reviewed As You Were #1! And they liked it!
Dang, Maximum Rocknroll even likes us! Scoop one up while you can!
Okay, kids, the time has come! AS YOU WERE #1 is now available to purchase online!
AS YOU WERE is a brand new punk comic anthology zine curated by Mitch Clem and featuring an array of some of the awesomest cartoonists in the scene all contributing brand new comics based on a centralized theme.
Issue one’s theme is HOUSE SHOWS, and features 72 pages of BRAND NEW COMICS from the following:
Ashley Rowe Palafox
Josh PM Frees
Nation of Amanda
Plus gorgeous cover art by Steve Larder
Makes a perfect addition to any punkhouse bathroom!
P.S. Since some people were asking, yes, this will be available in actual comic book and record stores fairly soon, but that’s all gonna take longer to set up, so it’s just online orders for right now.
Issue one of AS YOU WERE is FINALLY going to press this week. I’ll let you know when to expect them soon!
