Blackguard editor and publisher Stratu expressed anxiety yesterday over late contributions and subsequent multiple deadline extensions for his forthcoming comics zine Blackguard #4 (the 'Fear' issue).
"I've had to triple my Zoloft dose," he said, before crossing the room and slamming his forehead into the wall several times.
Stratu’s fiancé, Jojo, appeared from another room and attempted to console the Australian ‘vanity publisher’, now sobbing and attempting to light a cigarette the wrong way around.
Blackguard, a themed anthology featuring comic strips, short fiction, and comics and zine reviews, has appeared annually since 2008. AAP
