I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.
One of my work bros, Zack Keller (co-Creator of Dick Figures) wrote a short novel called The Success of Suexliegh! And published it! You can get it on Amazon as a $15 paperback or a $5 Kindle edition! It’s the story of a lovably inept ridiculously rich guy and his adventures in absurd wealth. From the Amazon page;
If the world is an oyster, surely Suexliegh must be the pearl.
Legend has it the “S” in the dollar sign stands for Suexliegh. He is literally in the business of making money as owner of the world’s largest mint. He prints everything from dollars for D.C. to euros for Europe. Coins should read “In Suexliegh, We Trust.” Suexliegh is rich, even monocle rich, though he has perfect vision. Some say better than a hawk’s. But, yes, a friend in green is a friend indeed, and in his pocket he has plenty those, both on the north and south side of the law, which keeps his coffers coughing Krugerands and his lineage guaranteed golden spoons until the end of time. But, no, it is not that this man makes money that he is special, it is that this man spends money. With a Hamptons house here. And a private jet there. Here a mill’, there a bill’. Everywhere champagne.
One year, Suexliegh is too busy throwing himself an elaborate birthday party to pay his taxes, which, due to the massive drop in currency, spirals the world into total financial collapse. After a brief stint in a white collar prison (which he owns, mind you) the government forces Suexliegh to repay his literal debt to society on the one thing all his wealth and power have never allowed him time for: a woman.
I’m sure it would mean a lot to Zack if you checked it out! It’s getting pretty solid reviews so far!
