More Shameful Self Promotion

September 30, 2008

Well some more good news. Readers would be overjoyed to hear your favorite webcomic (No, not XKCD) was featured in more newspapers and even got it’s face on the TV. I would like to take this moment to thank all those…

~ We interrupt this mental masturbation to bring in a special message ~

Pandering to the media

So anyway… This week’s Sunday Business Standard did an article on guess who, and guess who is posing in a weird way.

Busines Standard article on Fly You Fools - An indian web comic

NDTV Metronation has a program called Time Out, and last week they did a short section on Indian Webcomics. If you can’t understand what I’m saying, it’s OK. No one can.

18 Shrikant Joshi 10.01.08 at 3:27 PM

Congratulations Saad!

Now you have moved from being simply Saad Akhtar to “Sad Actor!!”

(Erm, sorry! Couldn’t resist that one!! :D )

And about the video, you could use the Comments or Annotations feature available for YouTube videos. Just a thought. :)

21 rahul munshi 10.02.08 at 1:41 AM

@ srikant

Sad Actor is my copyright (so better not use it). I already used it to represent Saad in my webcomic.

22 Shahab 10.03.08 at 10:36 AM

Congratulations Saad :)

23 Saad Akhtar (Author) 10.03.08 at 12:03 PM

Thank you, THANK YOU everyone. Thank you for reading, digging, sharing, stumbleuponing, facebooking, redditing, commenting, posting, indianpading, emailing and spamming these comics to others and making FyF more and more popular. :)

Enough self promotion for some time now. I was away from the computer for some days (It was hard), but now back to the serious business of making comics. Expect a new one tomorrow (or failing that, day after, or failing THAT.. the next day).

24 Anshul 10.05.08 at 11:58 AM

I too came to know about this through the Business Standard article itself, great going dude!


25 Subin Idiculla 10.06.08 at 2:26 AM

Really very funny job… Keep it up!!

26 Saad Akhtar (Author) 10.06.08 at 7:24 PM

@anshul: Really? That’s strange, because I came to know about your comic through that NDTV Metronation program. What a coincidence. ;)

@subin: Thanks :)
