"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
The great Brendan McCarthy has sent along this image, “Evanescent Everything,” to remind us all that “The Complete Zaucer is out on March 27th, in an ’80 page giant’ format. Lots of extras and a new afterword by me truly.” What a cool promo; it’d make a great black light poster. Kinda makes me want to put some Blue Cheer on the turntable and smoke a great big, uh, kipper. That’s right. A kipper, officer.
The original solicitation read:
The Complete Zaucer of Zilk—CERTIFIED COOL
Brendan McCarthy & Al Ewing (w) • McCarthy (a & c)
Get Zaucy! After instantaneous sell-outs of the single issues, IDW is proud to announce this special reprint of the collaboration with 2000 AD and Rebellion Publishing, The Zaucer of Zilk! Brendan McCarthy & Al Ewing’s phantasmagorical psychedelic extravaganza from beyond the fringes of imagination features an inter-dimensional magician who travels across the realms to save his number-one fan from the dank clutches of arch-nemesis Errol Raine, as visualized by the brilliantly surreal artist McCarthy!

Highly recommended. This was one of my favorite comics of 2012, a caustic little pill of pointed commentary sweetened by some typically glorious McCarthy artwork.
