Tacomic Book Update

November 15th, 2009 by RR Anderson

Being several months since the Tacoma Arts Commission formally announced their funding of my first TACOMIC BOOK, a collection of 100 of my editorial cartoon greatest hits, I thought I would check with this progress report:

Tolkien-Style Map of Tacoma for Tacomic Book

Any serious fantasy book needs a Tolkien-style map lurking somewhere round the table of contents. Click to enlarge the rough draft sketch of my Tacoma map (above).

Other items my book will include:

  1. Table of Contents – COMPLETE
  3. Map – IN PROGRESS
  4. Intentionally left blank pages – COMPLETE
  5. “Fun Facts” – NOT STARTED
  6. 100 of the best TACOMICS from 2007 – 2009 – NOT STARTED
  7. 1 page dedicated to the WORST TACOMICS – NOT STARTED
  8. Sampling of the best TACOMIC COMMENTS – NOT STARTED
  9. A behind the scene cartoonist statements – IN PROGRESS
  10. SPELLING + GRAMMAR corrections by Todd Mathews – IN PROGRESS
  11. Tide Tables + Venn Diagrams
  12. A complete set of Tacoma Action Figures – COMPLETE
  13. TBA, etc.

MEANWHILE, please enjoy the TACOMIC™ Political Cartoons every Tuesday Morning! Did you know you can get instant TACOMIC CARTOON updates via TWITTER?

    Nice map! However, you also need one just of Tacoma sort of like the hipster lunch map so that people can see the areas in Tacoma that are being references. Perhaps even have numbers on the map indicate what Tacomic number is being referenced.
