Goofa Man Productions Brings Star Babe to Eckman’s

Comments Off on Goofa Man Productions Brings Star Babe to Eckman’s

Goofa Man Productions is proud to hold the galactic premiere of it’s latest comic, 3-D Pete’s Star Babe Invasion Special, this Saturday, July 18th, at Eckman’s Card, Comic and Toy Show at the Live Oak Civic Center, just a minute or so outside of San Antonio!

Earthlings are warned that an ACTUAL Star Babe is rumored to be present at the show! Her title is reported to be “Queen of the Forbidden Galaxy,” but don’t let that scare you from coming out to the show!

Independent creator Mike Fisher of Goofa Man Productions has produced a brand new independent book that takes a look at those charismatic curvaceous creatures from the cosmos… STAR BABES in “3-D Pete’s Star Babe Invasion Special!”!

From “Devil Girl from Mars” to Jane Fonda as “Barbarella,” Star Babes have been a part of our pop culture consciousness for decades. Fisher — and his cartoon buddy, 3-D Pete — takes a look at some of the more noteworthy Star Babes from television and movies.

In a recent interview, Fisher said, “In these trying times, our nation can’t afford to ignore voluptuous women from the stars in skimpy outfits.”
“And another thing,” Fisher went on to rant, “I know that we’re all moving to pixels and away from comics printed with ink on paper, but that’s just the way I wanted to do it!”

“Sure, I invested a lot of time and money in a dying medium,” Fisher whined. “WAAAHHH!,” he cried, as he ran up the stairs in tears.

Fisher produces cartoons for “Animation Magazine” as well as web sites such as strangehorizons.com. He was a contributor to Starlog magazine for over 20 years.

In addition, he is a producer of award-winning independent short animations. His short animations have shown at film festivals across the country. Many have shown at the San Diego Comic-Con Short Film Festival.

For more information about Mike and his work, please go to www.goofaman.com

If you have any questions for Mike, please contact him at fivefish@satx.rr.com.

“3-D Pete’s Star Babe Invasion Special” is a 24-page
digest-sized book with a full-color cover and a
fabulous full-color center spread of a Star Babe on
vacation… in a BIKINI! Aren’t we naughty?
