    Shouldn't "KissAssery" say "Kick Assery" when pimping the Shaft-Walker-Magnum sticker? Just a thought.

    I can't wait to start letting these babies hit the public. Fine design work as always. Anyone who doesn't want a Walker sticker, deserves exactly what Chuck Norris gives them.

    Ohhhhh niiiice. I wasn't sure what to think of the stickers at first because I did one of those, "Hey…Chuck Norris…?" I definitely think these should go online after the convention so everyone who did not attend could have one too!!!!!!!!!

    Why isn't Shaft smiley face yellow too?

    • Marc Alan Fishman says:

      Because Shaft's Blackness transcends traditional Smiley Face Protocol. You dig, sucka?

      • Russ Rogers says:

        So Shaft's Blackness is the defining feature of the character? Is that true for all Black People? Lando Calrissian? Spike Lee? Frederick Douglass? You dig? If you color the Shaft Smiley Yellow, doesn't it still look like Shaft? Who does it look like? What color are Asian Smiley Faces? BTW, I think the Famous Facial Hair in Fiction Fundraising is a really cool deal. The three you present here are truly iconic. I'm just being niggling and devilish. And just to be clear: Are there three different stickers? Mavel, DC and Pop? or Three SETS of three stickers (nine all together)? Do you get all nine Smiley Characters for $5? Or is each set of three $5, so if you want the complete collection you're shelling out $15? Because any way you slice it, it's still a good deal and a great cause.

          It's 3 stickers: 1. DC – which has 3 smileys on it… Deathstroke, Sinestro, and Ra's A Ghul2. Marvel – which also has 3 smileys on it… Wolverine, Iron Man, and Bearded Thor3. Pop – which is above, and shows all three smileys.1 sticker is 2 bucks, or buy the whole set (that's three stickers) for 5 bucks. If we sell out, and people like them, we'll do another set, and sell them online, still for charity.And re: Blackness: I checked with some people I'm at work with. Shaft's blackness helps define his character. Lando is space black, so, that doesn't count. And Spike and Mr. Douglas are not fictional. Re: Asians… they would be double yellow. :) JUST KIDDING everyone.In the case of the Shaft smiley, we felt it was more readily recognizable to make him non-yellow. We also made Sinestro pink… So, in the set, it all makes sense. :)

    Can I purchase these marvelous stickers and get them sent to Indy? Jon and I are talking about trekking up to the con, but it will depend on our financial states. Well, mostly his, because if he goes he will want to buy everything he sees, which may end up with him prostituting me at the con. And the stickers rule. :)
