Elliott Serrano Presents:

There’s a thing called ‘Opening Night Jitters,’ where actors who are about to perform before an audience for the first time get nervous and wonder how their performances are going to be received. Well, I guess you could say I’ve got some form of them…

Here’s what’s going through my head the day before my ‘big project,’ Army of Darkness: Ash Saves Obama #1, hits the shelves of your local comic shop:

• Oh god, this book is going to be ripped to shreds by fanboys.
• Calm down, E. The book actually came out pretty well. You should be happy with it.
• But it’s OBAMA in an Army of Darkness comic!
• Oh yeah, and that guy wrote to Dynamite asking why we made an AOD/Obama comic…he hated the idea!
• But Joe liked it. Joe doesn’t like very much.
• People are going to look at you and say ‘HEY! It’s that guy who wrote the Obama comic!’
• Aw shit, people are going to look at me and say ‘HEY! It’s that guy who wrote the Obama comic!’
• Famed colorist Paul Mounts did say that his kid was really looking forward to the book…
• James Kuhoric was nice. He said he was looking forward to it as well.
• Ah, but James gets comps.
• I don’t get many comps.
• Why don’t I get comps!?
• My talk with John Suintres on
Wordballoon.com was pretty one-sided. John let me run on and on and on…
• What are people going to think about the book?
• Will people buy it?
• Will I ever get more work as a comic writer after this?
• Hm. Moonstone is teaming up Captain Action with Obama?
• Guest starring Joe Biden?
• Is there time to make Joe Biden a deadite in Ash Saves Obama #4?
• Oh man, some folks aren’t gonna like what I do with the Obamas’ dog.
• Where can I get some jujubees?
• I am never getting laid again.
• Damn, I really want some jujubees.
• Hey! I wrote a comic!

Ash Saves Obama #1 is on sale Wednesday, August 19th.

Elliott Serrano is a writer/columnist/blogger who has written comics for Dynamite Entertainment and is surprised that they let him. You can watch him discuss comics and comic culture on the CCW*TV video channel; read his blog for the Chicago Redeye and even drop him a line and tell him how much you loved/hated the book!
