"Open For Business" by Ken Bailey
WE ARE NOW "OPEN FOR BUSINESS." For a limited time, I have made arrangements with the Rangely Public Library to have several issues of the recent independent comic book, "PLEASE AND TANK YOU" available for sale locally in the town that inspired the story in the comic book. There are six issues available now. The price is $15 each, with all proceeds going to be donated (by me) to the Rangely Outdoor Museum.
In addition, there is an issue that is the property of the Rangely Library that is available for public reading.
If you wish to purchase one of the six copies, visit the Library and ask about the 'Ken Bailey Comic Book"! The story is designed for teens and adults, although with parental supervision, younger people may enjoy it also.
I don't often offer paper copies of my self-published comic books for sale, so this is a rare opportunity to own one. (See previous posts for synopsis of story).
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ken Bailey grew up in Rangley in the 1960's and was already creating comic books while in public school in that town. Fifty years later, he is still at it. "Please and Tank You" is a superhero story featuring his current flagship character, a middle-aged schoolteacher who is secretly a superhero -- and issue #33 of her stories, written and drawn over three months in the summer of 2016, celebrates Rangely with an adventure in the ficitonalized "Strangely" -- and a mystery involving a "Sonic Tank," an also-fictionalized homage to the real Rangely's new attraction.
