By Request Extra: Pieter de Poortere's "Boerke" Makes Stab At US Market As "Dickie"

I received about a half-dozen requests to drive some attention to this thus far not-very-successful crowdfunder for a North American collection of Pieter de Poortere's strip. So I can be influenced, is what I'm saying. Anyway, it's pretty sharp-looking, and I think the gags are mostly effective. We don't get a lot humor books like this since all the newspaper strips became people crabbing at one another, so it'd be nice if the current market could make one happen. Lot of strips over there, too, so this could be a "go, look" too.
