All Webcomic Creators Lie #3

Previously, Lisa Fary discussed with us her future project called “ScifiBabe”.

Yesterday, we got the following full retraction.

This isn’t really comics related, but it is a follow-up to our interview. In that interview, I talked about ScifiBabe. Well, ScifiBabe is now Pink Raygun, and it’s gone live at Shameless press release follows. Thanks!!

And here’s the press-release, in which she completely ignores the fact that’s she’s been defrauding her readers for months.

I demand Justice!

Pink Raygun Blasts the Web on February 1st

TUCSON, AZ 2/1/07–

Pink Raygun, the new webzine featuring news, reviews and interviews for fangirls. . . and boys officially launched on February 1st at Pink Raygun is dedicated to providing women a smart and savvy, yet girly, place to discuss and read about science fiction, fantasy and horror in all of their forms, be it television, movies, books or comics.

“Women need Pink Raygun,” says webzine editor Lisa Fary. “Nearly half of the Scifi Channel’s American viewership is comprised of women because the genre is changing, portraying more strong female characters in roles that have traditionally been played by men and featuring storylines that are more about people”. However, there have been few, if any, publications online or in print that address the growing female audience.

Pink Raygun features interviews with women working in all aspects of scifi, fantsy and horror. Within the first month, the webzine will run interviews with Noel Neill, known as the original Lois Lane, Christine Beiselin, who is the assistant costume designer for the film 300, and Amy Reeder Hadley, creator of Tokyopop’s American manga hit Fool’s Gold.

Other features of Pink Raygun include genre news, a message board forum, opinion pieces addressing issues within scifi, fantasy and horror and an extensive section dedicated to reviews of print and visual media, events, websites and music.

Pink Raygun’s management team is comprised of Lisa Fary as editor and John Dallaire as art director. Lisa Fary is a graduate of the creative writing program at Florida State University and holds an advanced degree in Special Education. Her early exposure to classic Battlestar Galactica in 1979 is largely responsible for her lifelong interest in science fiction and her childhood ambition of being an intergalactic space cowgirl. John Dallaire has over ten years of experience in commercial illustration and graphic design. He does art and illustration work for many of the casinos and resorts in Las Vegas. Together, Fary and Dallaire publish the webcomic, review and opinion site Intergalactic Law.

On the other hand, Pink Raygun is a much cooler name than ScifiBabe.

HAY! This is Becky and Ned, we’re friends of Colleen (she loves us more than you’ll ever know.) We are just here to sell us on you. I for one think that hearing about Becky’s comic might change the way you look at something or another, at least render your previous life pretty boring. We like kittens, puppies, and koalas.

Ned & Becky
PS: Coleman says hi.

Wow. Webcomic-oriented comment spam. All I get on my site are ads for L##v##t##a.

I view it more as mis-directed shameless self-promotion.

But I have no idea who Coleman is.

Uh, Gary Coleman? America’s favorite 3 3-foot-tall-african-american-child-star-turned-violent-security-guard-has-been?

Sheesh, Jeff. Get on the ball, buddy.

Nah. He’d call my private line if he wanted to say Hi.

I tried the pinkraygun link and got a server not found error…. have they gone dead already in a mere 4 days?

Apparently, you have lost your internet priviledges.

We expect you to turn in your router within 24 hours…..

It works fine for me, dude.

Sorry Jeff, the message was directed to Gary, his niece wanted us to drop him a line.

I don’t think Becky was really trying to Spam, and no one knows Coleman.

That comment was written by a drunk bowl on the holy day of Puppy Bowl Sunday

If I’d thought Becky was actually trying to spam, I’d have deleted the comment.

In future, to get a better reception for your shameless self-promotion, direct it to us through our contact form.

And to contact Gary, send him appropriately addressed email at fleen.


Don’t get me wrong.

I *like* shameless self-promotion.

I’m just saying that there are ways to make your life easier.

Also, I entirely approve of drunked postings.
