Batboy Is Going Places?

Despite the fact that his latest book is titled: Getting Nowhere Fast, Batboy is still trying to flap those wings, move those little yellow shoes, and actually get somewhere.

I just wanted to do a quick roundup of some Batboy-related news.

Firstly, I’m excited to announce that Batboy is listed over on Indie Comics Zone, a great resource for those who are interested in independent comics. Head over and peruse the many creators featured there.

If you find yourself in the North Jersey area and are in need of comics and collectibles, please stop in at East Side Mags in Montclair. You’ll be able to find the first two Batboy books there.

In addition to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, I am now on Reddit where I hope to share new Batboy comics in the near future.

And as the first copies of Getting Nowhere Fast: Another Batboy Comic Collection start landing in the hands of friends, family and fans, I want to say thank you all!

Batboy is back! In comic form!

I’m very excited to share this with you, it’s the second printed collection of Batboy Comics! Available now on Amazon.

Here’s the description from Amazon:

Batboy doesn’t know when to stop. He’s still flapping those anxious wings, drinking from the cup of pessimism, and wearing the sweatpants of awkwardness.

This collection comprises the second year of Batboy comics, originally released into the void of the internet from January through October 2022.

Also contained herein are brand new, never-before-seen panels,
some extra goodies, and the short horror story Death Creeps on Paws of Plush!

Batboy is an indie comic, which originated at the height of stress and anxiety in the year 2021. Batboy deals with everyday issues, mental health and self-improvement with wit, humor, and goofiness. For fans of classic Sunday funnies or underground comix, Batboy is everyone and is for everyone.

But don’t just take my word for it, below are a few reviews for the previous Batboy collection:

“Batboy is all of us. Self-sabotage and all. Lovely artwork and color, with a unique voice. There’s even callouts to Gorey! And as a bonus there is a sketchbook of Batboy at the end. I loved it.”

– Andrew Bellware

“M.R. Kessell has done it again! Within these pages lies a lovable and tragic representation of self-induced deprecation named Batboy.”

– Peter Hammarberg

“I absolutely ADORE Batboy and anxiously anticipate his next moves.”

– Katherine Kessell

“The next great Sunday comic character is Batboy!”

– Shawn Flanagan
