What you didn’t know is that Tony McMillen, writer of the recently released Nefarious Twit and collaborator on Tony And Daniel: Popping Culture, was asked, by me, to draw the cover. I only gave him two simple directives:
1) No genitalia. This is not for moral reasons, but economical ones. Book stores are 120% less likely to carry your magazine if the front cover is littered with dongs.
2) It has to have “Daniel is funny #1” written somewhere on the cover. This is important, because otherwise, no one would know what it is. I don’t know a lot about publishing, but I’ve heard that getting people to learn the title of the magazine is key. That might just be a rumor though.
He took the challenge of creating a privates-less, title-filled cover and this is what he came back with:
Now my writing has to live up to the draft of the cover art. Great. Thanks a lot, Tony, and I mean that both sincerely and sarcastically.
