“I thought it would be funnier if I got left off the Eisner ballot, but I guess not!” said Shannon Wheeler.

“When we didn’t see Shannon’s book on the 2011 Eisner Awards ballot, we thought the joke was on us!” said BOOM! Studios Marketing Director Chip Mosher. “But now that the good folks at the Eisner Awards have fixed the glitch, we’re offering voters a chance to experience the unrelenting hilarity of I THOUGHT YOU WOULD BE FUNNIER for free. So be sure to get your free copy and take another look at your vote for Best Humor Publication!”
