Good meeting you the other day at DA. I have now been at your extensive web site. I enjoyed the songs and will at some time in the future try to parse your writings and graphic work. Yesterday I was at a Finnegans Wake reading group meeting, which along with other readings and grandfathering at present keeps me out of trouble.
I noticed from your biography some crossovers with mine. My hippy travelings were more with a safety line than yours, less fuck-it-all abandon. Even though I ran away from being an engineer/mathematician/computer scientist again and again, and was willfully unemployed for years, I wound up at various times reluctantly using my education to make some money. I spent 8 month travelling through Asia 70-71, a year teaching in Oregon 74-75, then hanging out in Berkeley and Paris 75-77, went to China 78 (before they opened up) and then SE Asia. I did a few trips to Mexico also, including the summer of 75, where my favorite place was also Oaxaca. I see that you lived at a dormitory in Nærum. The first full year I spent in Denmark was at the Povl Bergsøe Kollegiet in Nærum, 69-70 - maybe the same place that you were?
Looking forward to seeing you again, maybe at DA (I can't come next time) or some other time.

Diego Lazzarin here, I'm a comic book author from Italy.
I found your email address trough your Facebook page.
At first I saw Armageddonquest on Kickstarter and I immediately became curious... to me looks like an incredible project... how did you manage to work 20 years on a book?! 900 pages is huge!!! My first book was 160 pages, took 3 years and I went crazy!!! I was also intrigued by the drawings and the story. I was very surprised and disappointed to see it has not been funded... I hope you found some other ways to publish this book because this really deserves to exist... I'm not saying this just because I have a campaign running and I'm asking support.. I am contacting a lot off people and normally I don't use this amount of words! Best of luck!
Said this.. I hope I don't disturb, I'm writing you regarding my first Kickstarter for my Comic Book: Invisible War. It is a comic book fully painted in acrylics.
I have put a lot of energies in the making, in the artwork and in the campaign itself. I've been working on this project since the beginning of this year... now the book is ready and I really wish to see it printed! I'm sending you a link to the kickstarter page, hopefully you'll be intrigued and might help me make this project a reality!
By the way, any feedback from you and any suggestion based on your experience on Kickstarter would be much appreciated! :-) Diego
Here is the link to the Kickstarter page:

A long time ago, I saw this short comic advertised in Dawn. More text than art, B&W, all stuff that contradicted my comic preferences at the time, yet it absolutely caught my imagination, and demanded my attention.
Also, I live in Malaysia, in SE Asia. Comics at that time came in random slipshod fashion, alright if you wanted Marvel and DC, but a challenge to order from smaller publishers. I ordered, reordered and finally almost 2 years later, managed to get the 2nd Book of Amageddonquest.
Blown away doesn't quite describe it. It imprinted me, or maybe resonated with truths of ... something. In another year I had all three books and finished the bittersweet story of AQ, hoping this Roach guy would write the sequel.
Then one day I lost all of my huge library in a moving accident. AQ was the book I kept hunting for everywhere, but it was out of print, even impossible to get online.
And now, hey, its all online. Still brilliant, hopefully a little prophetic.
Thank you. There are no accidents. It played its part in making my life what it is now. Alas, no Avatar advantages!
I hope you repackage the comics in an online format, yes I could download each of them, but I'd love a cbr. format. But thats a tiny fraction of hoping for AQ sequels; if nothing else to answer who deflected the missiles shot at Tazio as he was freefalling to Meggido.
again, thanks 3R. Cheers.

Dear Ron, I found your homepage several years ago! I like your songs, especially "One More Horny Gringo" , because I've been in Mexico several times and I like that country very much. Now I have a problem, I can hear your songs but am not playing you. Do you have these songs on CD or DVD? I would be very happy, if you are so kind, to send me a copy. With kind regards from Bremerhaven/Germany

Hey Ron, remember me? Paris '89 on the Seine. Shared a beer, a few songs and some drawing time. Good memories, I remember you fondly, and you are the subject of stories to my friends and family. Jeffery from Canada.

Hi, Greetings from the U.S. Just a short note to let you know I came across your site while surfing the web today. Now I am hooked on it and am doing the reading you have posted.
But, as naturists we really got a laugh at your Ron & Marianne's Summer Postcard 2002. Your adventures into clothing optional was great. The naked everything bobbing and swinging, was hilarious! As far as OLD HIPPIES well we are there too, so we can relate. Also loved the fig leave picture. I'll be checking your site from time to time keep up the good work please.
P.S. there are times when we are the best looking naturists too! LOL

I was introduced to the first two Armageddonquest books
through a friend...I know you have moved on to fresher things, but I'm thoroughly convinced that AQ would make a great anime series. I would defintiely buy that on DVD and I'm not really a fan of anime, or manga...all the same, i thought it would make a great movie, but the budget would be staggering... animation would do it all great justice...something to think about...

Read your "Spacebum" comix in slowdeath comics a long, long time ago, and wanted to know where I could get the whole story as I never found out what happened to the hero after he was drugged in a cantina and shanghied.
Amazing that I remembered it. Talk about a GREAT idea for a movie.
I think that you and others underrate the idea of Spacebum,that is , the idea of being stuck in (on a planet), due to lack of funds, and having to use your wits to survive,let alone trying to escape.. great comix, you should consider doing space bum again. The hero really grows on you..make it a series..
thanks from Redondo beach ca,usa

just wanted to drop you a line to say I love the
Adam out of Eden story. I do have a question about one of
the characters names though. Felix Sinsley, how did you
come about that particular last name? It is also my last
name and not that common. I will anxiously await your reply
Thanks alot. SS

Hey there 3R,
Many times on radio station talk shows, callers will identify themselves
as a "Long time, First time", obviously meaning a long time listener, but a
first time caller. If that can be applied to comics, then consider me a Long
Time reader, First Time e-mailer.
I first received and read AQ about a year or so after Sirius published the
books. In fact, I think the first real AQ story I read was the short one
published in Cry For Dawn (I have no idea which issue). So now, I'm 23, been
a year out of art school, trying to do my best in the illustration and
comics world, and only now do I write you to tell you how much I love AQ.
I think what sparked this letter is that I just got through reading all 3
books again, this time in one sitting at my day job (Gallery Monitor). It
pretty much worked out to a book a day. The book affects people, and
affected me. I was driving home and listening on NPR about more
Israeli/Palestinian conflict and could help wondering facetiously if Anton
was behind any of it. You've made the books so believable by including
elements from all sorts of religion, histories and New Age thought, that I
wonder how much of it YOU believe. Sure, the people may be fictionalized,
but the themes, the idea that life is just one big game played by cosmic
brats - it's certainly not out of the question!
Perhaps the theme of the entire story is that it's not right for anyone to
play God - even God! This is certainly Tazio's belief, and yet he learns,
too that some people must be 'guided' and that only a select few individuals
do not grow out of their sheep-like tendencies. Although humans posess
something that may be construed as intelligence, the leader/follower
relationship is completely natural in all social creatures and thus is not
necessarily a bad thing. I think Tazio comes to accept this as Immanuel
seems to have long ago.
On a complete gushing fan level, I wanted to know if there are any other
comics you've done that could in some way relate to the world of AQ, and
where I could possibly get them. I seem to remember seeing an Adam and
Eve-ish story that you did at some point, although maybe I'm making that up.
I don't know if you ever make it to shows or anything in the U.S., but I've
begun a sketchbook in which fellow artists or artists that I admire have
done drawings for me and I would love to see a 3R in there some day, or see
any of your original art for that matter.
I have done a drawing of some of the AQ characters I'd love to send you, but
I didn't want to clog up your email inbox with an attachment unless it was
okay. I'm sure your vision has blurred, so I'll conclude this letter with a
big thank you and a healthy admiration for AQ and your work.

No wonder we never hear from you anymore. You've obviously been VERY busy! Your Web site looks great! I used you as a link in the personal home page I created for school. Actually understood all the computer lingo about frames(!).
Your site's entertaining, informative, and visually effective.
Great Job! Of Course, we expect nothing less...

Pardon me for being so formal, but man I've been speaking your name
for the past 5 years, to friends, family, social workers who ask
why I don't get a job. Heres the point, 5 years ago I started
posting on the armegeddonquest official web page, I'm AnthonyL
(mudd). I recently went back to the page and saw how little (sob)
was ever written there, what I did see however, was the link to
your wonderful world of weird. I recently re-read aq (it finally
came back around to me having been circulated through my friends,
family....oh and that social worker who's now unemployed) The
love is still there. There was so much i missed the first time.
Sorry if this mail seems choppy, I'm working a third shift at a
hotel and this is the first thing I've written since my 3129 page
opus "All work and no play makes anthony a dull boy" I just
wanted you to know how much I love(d) AQ, It is a true epic and
for someone with the attention span of a goldfish (that would be
me) that's saying alot. My problem however, Is now I have this
website to come to......... so much for my job at the hotel.
Enough ranting, if I've scared you I appologize, If you've
actually seen the praise that this e-mail was trying to deliver,
bless you. thanks again for being great.
anthony david lawson
PS yeah so I just re-read what I wrote and if you've made it this far
I'll give you the Cliff's Note version of what I was trying to say:
AQ Is the best thing I've ever read and thanks for writing it.

I wanted to say hi and let you know how very much I'm enjoying your web site. What a great new find for us... our daughter did a report in school last year on DK and this would've been a great resource (except the nudie shots, though the 6th grade boys wouldn't have minded). So good to read about your travels, thank you! Hils min Moster Marianne og min fætter Mads!
Mange Tak og kærlig hilsen, Karin

I was fooling around on the search engine yesterday,
and for fun, happened to plug in "christmas day kathnandu",
a line from an old aquaintance of mine I met while on the
Seine in Paris '89. Lo' & behold, there you are! Your e-mail
doesn't work by the way. I copied some of your chords for
playing with my friend, and have long ago added Christmas Day
in Kathmandu to the list of things I've got to do in my lifetime.
You've inspired me. Regards Jeff Williams

What's it all mean?

Kære Ron og Marianne.
Ved I hvordan man bor billigt i Californien? Hvis finanserne ellers
vælter ned fra himlen tager vi derover til juni, men gode og billige
fiduser kan vi sagtens bruge. Kender I steder hvor man kan leje
lejligheder - San Fransisco mest....Og så glæder vi os til snart at
se jer igen - vi gir' gerne en middag, så vi har lidt mere tid - og
denne gang er der vist ikke noget vi lige skal have flyttet.

Just got to let you know that you've got an enthusiastic fan
in London. Originally for your Armageddonquest graphic novel, and
then again for your excellent web-site! I spotted it only because
I enjoyed your epic comic book so much that I had to have MORE AQ,
and when I did an "armageddonquest" search on Yahoo, it came up with
your URL. But this "3R Home Page" seems to be relatively unknown, I
was hit number 570-something first time I logged on. You should
really let more people know that you're online. I think anyone who
ever read AQ would be interested, especially in the Tazio and Immanuel
stories, which seem just as good as the original comic. I haven't read
them all yet, but probably will soon, it's just that there's that lot
of other tidbits to sift through as well, with all your sci-fi stories,
comix section, tour of Copenhagen, song book, bloody hell, where does
it end? And it's all so entertaining! I even downloaded some of your
MP3s (as a Star Trek fan I will treasure "the Wreck of the Starship
Enterprise" forever). Also downloaded your "Crown the Clown" tarot
card story because it was too long to read in one sitting (still
working my way through it, quite fun so far). Cor blimey, I'll
probably end up downloading your blooming songbook as well. Why
aren't you rich and famous?

Just went through your newest improvement on your web-site
(Københavan), and I must say that I'm very impressed. It's
very nice, the frames work perfectly, it's informative (but NOT
boring) and it's easy to see that you REALLY love Copenhagen and
the danes -that's great Ronny. Just one advice: The Copenhagen map
is too compressed to see anything. You could make it as a full
screen pop up window to get all the details (major street names).

you and the world posted.
Har det, Tore
to ron roach
just dropping in to say hello to the guy that created one of the
greatest comix of all time (even including ancient egyptian graffiti!).
so: hi ron, please keep it coming. you deserve to earn millions for
what you've done, but, living in the real world as i do, i would
think that armaggedonquest will not oust quality authors such as
jackie collins from the bestseller lists. i'm trying to tune as many
people onto aq as i can, but since the book's not been published in
germany, i'm not having a lot of success. are there any plans for
a german version? there's been a huge resurgence for comics here in
recent years, so i think the market is there. bye,

I'm giving your email address to some good friends of
mine who are trying to get to Copenhagen this year. Hope you can
connect. (Larry and Judith Prosser, from Grass Valley, CA). My
news is that Becky is getting married this summer, which means that
I get to see the whole Stallcup clan. It's great to have old
friends who will actually show up for "life" events like this.
Anyway, I hope your life is going well, and look forward to the
next time we can chat. Would still love to get to Copenhagen
myself, but looks like this year we will be paying for a less than
12 hour event that could have sent us to Europe for a month! Love
