    Last year I read a bunch of the color Dreadstar stuff for the first time. #1-16 if I remember correctly. It was fantastic. Even though it has a lot of old school things going on with the art and story, it’s still a terrific read.

    if i remember correctly, FB ads got us a bunch of likes from SA but no sales. maybe increased spotify plays but we’d have to get 500k plays before we can make the threahold of being paid
