It's that time again! Time for ol' Sean Dietrich to throw out (or up) his artistic mayhem in the form of a book. My new book 'The Nazi and the Rabbit' is finally set to release on May 28th!!!! That's right, we're giving the 'Greatest Generation', and others who've fought for this country to become homeless and neglected, a run for it's money as to why Memorial Day will be celebrated.
"We, you say Mr. Dietrich?" Oh, did I forget to mention that the man at the helm of the writing is none other than legendary reporter and novelist Richard A. Webster!? That's right, the man who won prestigious awards for his coverage of Hurricane Katrina by living through it! The man who redefined the words 'writer', 'journalist', 'drunk', and has actually been able to have a symbiotic relationship with Mother New Orleans, as opposed to being sucked into the mess, scooping up the blood and mucus from the streets, packing as much of the muck into his eye sockets so as not to be blinded by the morning sun. The man who slugs back Tequila on a Tuesday at nameless dives, dressed as a pink bunny, a sort of 'A Christmas Story' nightmare bunny meets 'Bar Fly'. Yes, THAT guy.
This book will redefine what a comic, a novel and art is. The combination of the art and writing will be an ongoing development, an experiment, a mold growing in the back of your fridge. The book will be yours. Contributions and sacrifices will need to be made. Victory gardens of poppies and the rationing of sanity will be demanded. The mental nuclear clock is now set at 1 min 'til twelve. There is no set format, because it's impossible. The book will be presented in online format first, for trying to print the book would set the printing machines against their operators. So until a solution can be found (estimates put that 'solution' to be presented at next year's Seattle Comic Con), it's wise just to view it from the safety of your online vessel. There's no need to pull money out of already stretched state budgets to pay for S.W.A.T. teams to take down droves of print shop employees, who have been zombified by large format printers that have bitten off their legs, and have replaced their hearts and eyes with ink cartridges.
So on Monday, May 28th, when the politicians and black hearted are holding their hands to their chests, pretending to give a fuck about those who died for this country, remember to check back for the official launch of 'The Nazi and the Rabbit' website www.nandther.com, and come take a dip in the 'real'. Come run through the briar with our Rabbit, and then follow him into the dark, depths of the South as his descent into a rotten carrot hell begins. Bugs Bunny and Peter Rabbit are already blowing Japanese businessmen in back alleys to raise money to buy a train ticket to New Orleans, and see what the fuss is about. To see who this Rabbit is. To see why the shiny, black boots of destruction are marching a long way from home, and heading to the deep, deep cereal bowl of alcohol and bleach that lies at the end of the Mississippi River...
