“GWAR: Orgasmatron” Comic Series To Be Released As A Trade Paperback

It has been announced that GWAR’s “Orgasmatron” comic series will be compiled and sold as a trade paperback. This version will include the main story, as well as backup stories and artwork. You can head HERE to find your local comic shop and ask them to carry it or preorder it at Things From Another World.

Co-writer Matt Miner commented:

“It’s been an honor to work on this book with the guys from GWAR. I’m thrilled and humbled by the massive positive response the comic books have gotten and I’m ecstatic that Dynamite Comics is publishing a collected paperback that can sit on library shelves and corrupt children for decades to come.”

He also said the following about contacting your local comic book shop:

“Facebook messages are the least intrusive but most effective means of outreach. If the trade paperback does well then we could see a second comic series of blood drenched antics featuring our favorite Scumdogs of the Universe.”

He further added:

“Get your pre-orders in now and secure your copy. Wait until it’s sold out and you’ll be selling kidneys on the black market to pay jacked-up prices on eBay.”

GWAR Sign Up Thousands Of Bone Marrow Donors To Help BälSäc The Jaws ‘O Death Following Myelofibrosis Diagnosis

After the sad news that GWAR’s Michael Derks (aka BälSäc the Jaws ‘o Death) had been diagnosed with myelofibrosis, a bone marrow disorder that disrupts the production of blood cells, the band partnered with Love Hope Strength to help find the guitarist a bone marrow donor. So far, the band have got over 3,000 fans to sign up for the national bone registry during their current tour.

Rob Rushing, Love Hope Strength’s national tour manager, told The Richmond Times-Dispatch the following:

“They’re the No. 1 band we’ve had on our virtual drive. We’ve partnered with Ozzy Osbourne, all kinds of bands, and GWAR right now has more people signed up for the virtual drive than anyone else by far.”

Donors are found using cheek swabs, but it is hard to get an exact match, due to how similar the DNA has to be. Rushing added the following about that:

“It’s crazy specific, because you have to match them close enough on the DNA chain that their body accepts it, but there be just enough difference that the body starts making new clean blood cells based on the donor’s DNA so it’s clean — new fresh cells that kill the cancer.”

Derks continues to tour while using labs across the country to moniter his blood.
