I've been doing the podcast Comic News Insider for some time now. We review comic books and on occasion, someone thinks my word means something. I've done a few blurbs for folks for their websites and press releases. But, for the first time I'm actually on the back of a book for all to see! What is that book, you ask? No? You didn't ask? Well, ask damn it! It's none other than...
Jesus Hates Zombies featuring Lincoln Hates Werewolves by Stephen Lindsay and Steve Cobb. Here's the official breakdown:
Following on the heels of the independent smash-hit JESUS HATES ZOMBIES: Those Slack-Jaw Blues, writer/creator Stephen Lindsay is back with the J-Man and a new friend: Abraham Lincoln! Starring in a new four-part ongoing straight-to-trade series, Jesus along with Laz, his loyal zombie sidekick, must figure out a way to unite the remaining humans to stand up and defeat the zombie menace. But zombies won't be their only problem - werewolves abound and it's up to another bearded man to defeat these dastardly beasts! Abraham Lincoln to be exact! With a time-traveling Lincoln at their side and a zombified Angel hot on their heels, can this mish-mash of heroes save humanity... and themselves?
Sounds zany and crazy. I know! Stephen's first book, Jesus Hates Zombies: Those Slack-Jaw Blues was really fun and I championed it for some time on the show. Go buy it. I'll wait. Got it? Good. Well, Stephen and I started corresponding more and officially met at various comic conventions. When he announced the sequel JHZ, he asked if I'd write a blurb for it. So, I did. And it's on the back cover, bitches! And it goes a little something like this:
WWJD? (What Would Jesus Do?) He'd kick some zombie ass! Jesus Hates Zombies is a fun, action packed romp full of both hilarity and drama. Who knew Jesus was such an ass kicking, no cheek turning, zombie destroyer? Stephen Lindsay, that's who!

Start lining up, kids. Send in your requests and I'll gladly start blurbing all over your face! I mean, your book. Hell, I'll even try my hand at a Foreword and even an Afterword. Many one day I'll actually get to finishing the books I'm working on as well. Oh, and if you don't believe me about the blurb, suck on this.
