For those of you who have been drooling over the upcoming new series KING! from Blacklist Studios, I wanted to give you the opportunity to speak your piece and let us know what burning questions you have about the big guy. In every issue of KING!, we will have a backup story that will answer a question from some lucky reader- kind of like a "letters page," but in visual form.

What do you want to know about KING!?

What would you like to see him do?

Now, before you get all crazy- PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT looking for scripts.

I am looking for questions or situations that you'd like to see KING! in.

YOU ask the questions, we will pick the best ones and Daniel and I will tell you the story about what actually happened...

Remember- this is in place of a letters page, so ask your fanboy questions and we will give you answers!

Please send your emails to blackmail@blackliststudios.com , making sure you reference W.W.K.D? or hit me up on Twitter at http://twitter.com/robotthirteen with the trending topic #WWKD . In any case- brief and interesting always beats out long windeded and stupid any day!

Please make sure to state your queries in the form of a question and, like all fanboy letters to the Editor, let us know your name and the State & Town that you are in so we can quote you correctly.

Whatever you send us is property of Blacklist Studios LLC., and it's all in fun so don't get all bent if someone beats you to a good idea.

Sharing Is Caring

On Saturday, January 30th, I will again be appearing at the Saint Barnabas Hospice and Palliative Care Center for one of their regular Charity shows. At the show, we'll have copies of Robot 13 and whatever else I can pull together, as well as other fantastic Guest Creators and a HUGE number of longboxes filled with very inexpensive comics. Everything is for a great cause- so come on down and spend a little money to help them out. The Show will be at 95 Old Short Hills Rd., West Orange, NJ 07052 at the Hospice Center. Hope to see you there!

Upload On The Down-Low

Right now, there are 3 alternatives for those of you who want to read Robot 13 in a digital format: Robot Comic's version here, Panelfly's version here and the piece of crap bootleg that is floating around the Internet (which I won't point you to).

While versions A and B each have their differences, both of them are not only officially sanctioned by Blacklist Studios, both of them started off by using High Res files that we provided. That's why they look so good- they began with the best possible source material so that we could offer YOU a nice product. While no company is ever 100% perfect, we at Blacklist have always tried to err on the side of giving comic fans the best comic experience we can.

We try to go the extra mile for you because as comic fans ourselves we would want that from someone else. If you have seen the quality of the printed books we put out, you know that we would rather make less on an issue than give you something that wasn't on par or better with the other top books on the market.

When you look at the option C version that is being traded all over the 'Net, you will notice that the quality of it sucks. Someone took their copy and scanned it (poorly) and what you have is, while readable, an over all piece of crap compared to the visual experience we wanted to bring you.

Now, to be fair, that argument isn't what you will hear from most publishers. Yes- IF Blacklist was paid for only 10% of all the illegal downloads of Robot 13 to date it, would represent more than 20,000% increase of cash to our bottom line. And Yes, IF we had those kind of funds, it would mean we could do some amazing things. But our attitude is- a person who is willing to break the law and potentially face jail time and ridiculous monitary fines to read our comics only to end up downloading something that visually both Sucks AND Blows is cheating themselves.

Spend the .99 and save your "Get Out Of Jail Free" card for another day, and you'll be surprised as to how much better of a comic experience you'll get from it...

"It's All Fun Until Someone Loses An Eye..."

In Homer's Epic poem, The Odyssey, the Hero of the story pokes the eye of the Cyclops out with a flaming wooden pole and escapes, leaving the angry and blinded Cyclops behind.

Will Robot 13 follow in Odysseus' footsteps?

Issue 3 will tell the tale...
