Coming This Summer: The Schooly Awards
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Comic Book Haters, hosts of the internationally ignored and soft spoken Comic Book Haters podcast, are making internet history for the first time ever. Beginning late May 2007, the online comic book community is invited to partake in the "Schooly Awards," the first annual-centennial celebration of the worst comics of the year. "Everyone always talks about the 'best'," said co-creator DJ Sloofus as part of a fictionalized third person narrative, "but no one ever really mentions the shit. There was a lot of shit this year." Outspoken crankpot (and the eponymous 'comic book hater' of the show's title) Schooly G revealed that the awards were created "to give hate-filled readers a chance to say 'fuck you!' to comic creators everywhere." His viewpoints were not neccesarily shared by the rest of his associates.
The first annual-centennial Schooly Awards are scheduled for the summer, 2007 convention season. As the only comic book awards named after a living person, a certain degree of decorum was needed. Specifically designed to be taken more seriously than the Eisners, the "Schoolys" (as they are known in some indie circles) offer no pretensions that their recipients are worthy of any recognition whatesoever, but do feel the need to publicly denounce them amongst an audience of jackanapes and bouffants. "I'd like to encourage everyone to get out there and vote," Sloofus said, as a tear welled up in his eye. The tear was later discovered to be disingenuine.
This year's categories include:
- Worst Single Issue
- Worst New Series
- Worst Continuing Series
- Worst Original Graphic Novel or Trade Paperback
- Worst Writer
- Worst Artist (Penciller or inker)
- Worst Zombie Comic
- Worst Hero
- Worst Villain
- Schooly G's Favorite Comic of the Year (Only Schooly may vote for this one)
- The Comic Book Hater's Shit-Stained Hall of Shame 2007
Those reading these words have been specially selected to partake in the actual electoral process, simply by copying and pasting their votes to firstname.lastname@example.org. All entries received before June 31st, 2007 will be counted towards the winners. Multiple votes are encouraged. One vote per househould, please. No Irish.

Insatiable listners to the Comic Book Haters' podcast are instructed to double their pleasure this week, with relatively little strain on the wallet.
