Gun-totin', Chronic-smokin' Hearse Initiator


Hey, speaking of my crappy novel and things I write that no one is interested in, I had this great idea for a book to work on after I finish said crappy novel. It's the only idea I've ever had for a book I might like to write that isn't fiction or humor.

It would be a critical theory book, blending close-reading semiotics a la Barthes' "S/Z" with cultural-studies riffing, about the Lee/Kirby run of the Fantastic Four.

I can only think of a few problems with this:

1. No mainstream publisher would touch it, because it has zero commercial potential and lacks a certain popular resonance.

2. No academic publisher would touch it, because it is about comic books and because I am a high school dropout.

3. Even if someone published it, no one would buy it or read it.

Other than that, I think it's a pretty neat idea.
