On Facebook, comic book creator Jim Starlin expressed his appreciation to his fans for their voting to nominate his novel, Lazgood's Boys for publication through the Amazon Kindle Scout Program.
"We now have over 3000 nominations," explained Starlin, "Not sure if that's enough votes or not. Amazon isn't very forthcoming about how many votes a nominee may need. But I think that's a pretty solid show of support and I thank all you folks who cast a ballot."
Lazgood's Boys is the first novel in a trilogy entitled Hardcore Station, loosely based on and a continuation of a comic series Starlin did with DC Comics back in the late nineties.
"It's the setting I'm bringing back, none of the characters," said Starlin. "But there are three genetically-enhanced brothers, who were hyped up to save humanity from the slavery that is life under the Weeds, AKA the OmniEver Corporation. Unfortunately, the plan goes south early on and when the kids grow up, it looks more likely they're going to kill each other off instead."
There's still time to read an excerpt from Lazgood's Boys and vote for it to be published.
So, if you're a fan of Jim Starlin's work, the patriotic thing to do is vote early and vote often.
