"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
I didn’t notice this when he posted it, or else I’d have posted about it then, but Keith Champagne came by the blog a couple of weeks ago to make the following offer – if you buy his upcoming comic, Countdown: Arena #1, and do not enjoy it – he will purchase the comic back from you at double the cover price.
His contact info is firstname.lastname@example.org.
That is an impressive piece of confidence on Champagne’s part. Champagne wrote a really good Green Lantern Corps storyline awhile back, so on his own, he looks to be a good writer, but I do not think he did much with the last awful assignment given to him (World War III), so a mini-series where alternate reality superheros battle each other for the right to be in Monarch’s army (with the winners chosen via website) is a tough task – but here’s hoping he is up to it!
And I am quite impressed by Champagne’s offer. Please take him up on it! A bold move like this deserves support.
