Wow. We’ve done it. In one page a week increments we’ve managed to complete a 20-paged comic book. And now we are beginning another. And this time Billy is going to say a few words to kick it off.
-Sonny “King Vitamin” Strait
You don’t know how long I’ve waited for this chapter. When Sonny approached me back in February to help him with this new idea for a book I jumped at the chance. It was called “MetaphysX” at the time.
It was a Wednesday night when he called and I told him I’d have a good rough draft for the first chapter by Monday. Well, I sent it the next day. The images and words of Lemme and Sharky started popping like corn kernels and the story began streaming like Satrianis fingers down the neck of an Ibanez guitar. He liked it so I started on the draft for the second. Boom! Sent just as fast as the first with the same response. With the same fevered fervor, I attacked the third.
Sonny’s reply was not the same as the first two. He had reminded me of something he had said that night in February. He wanted MetaphysX to have the old Lee and Kirby’s Fantastic Four feel to it. So I slowed down, took a deep breath and said, “How about some alien cowboy grasshoppers that ride giant mutated rats?”
“Perfect” was his reply.
I’m keeping the mantra of “just have fun” as I keep sending the words to Sonny. Just sent chapter 9 to him last week. We’re serious as all get out about this project and we hope you all enjoy. What better way to start the week than with a serving of Lemme Addams every Monday Funday.
