I need a title for the semi regular comic Im working on.

I was gonna call it "Tales of the Mundane" but I've decided that doesnt really fit like I thought it did.
Im drawing a complete blank on anything to name it.


Soooooo throw some suggestions out to me.

tales of the mundane would be knid of cliche and wouldn't fit your work at all. you need an out there title that's completely over the top.

I was going do call mine Challengers of the Mundane back in the day... you can have that one if you want.

Its kinda like my crappier version of "Eightball" or "Yummy Fur" or books like those.
Where there are different stories in each issue.

No... People would be all "Charlatan... Charlet.... Jim Shooter's Charlamagne from defiant comics"... then they'll all start reading Warriors of Plasm & talking about how great Valiant comics were when Shooter was in charge... then Some jackass will be like "YOu know Dave Lapham drew warriors of Plasm before he started stray bullets" it'll be chaos. wich of course leads people right to Lady Death & the last thing we need is a bad girl revival on our hands.

Rapscallion.
