Jay Lynch Fanboy Card
Artist Jay Lynch has a card which you can get by becoming his Facebook friend, and by sending him $1 and a SASE. Only 160 were made. I received mine today.

As far as i know this offer is now closed.

Come, it is time for you to keep your appointment with The Wicker Man.

I mailed my SASE last Thurs or Friday and received the card. I don't have it in front of me, but I believe it is #ed 86/160 so I assumed that some were still available. Sorry !

Let me make this easy for everyone. Currently, Jay has three websites – Two on Facebook and his own independent site using the MindSpring server. His MindSpring site is:

It’s a little out of date (since he doesn’t mention FB), but it’s still great and has some awesome info about him.

Here is the link to his PUBLIC Facebook page:

And here is the link for his PERSONAL Facebook page:

His public page features an image of The Comics Journal – issue #114 from 1987. Currently, you can view EVERY page of that that issue online on the website for the magazine (along with back issues #27 through to #134). It appears most or all issues starting with #135 and ending with #300 are not viewable online, just summarized. I'm amazed there is a website at all because I thought it stopped publishing YEARS ago. Apparently I was wrong. I have some links below.

Happy hunting everyone!


P.S. Quote from Star Trek (Captain Christopher Pike, played by Jeffrey Hunter:
“There's a way out of any cage, and I'll find it.”

Got my card: #129/160. Thought card was to be hand autographed, but it is a printed type of autograph.

Also received my card yesterday #125/160. A note to anyone still sending out for this - you might want to include a toploader or some kind of protection in the SASE. I didn't and I'm VERY thankful it arrived unscathed!

I'm pretty sure it is really autographed. I'm not sure what type of pens he uses, but it's so nice it looks printed. He did a sketch for me at the last Allentown show in a Wacky Packages book, and if I didn't stand there watching him do it I'd swear it was printed in the book!
