Matthew Kriske Buys Controlling Share of Big Time Attic

Hey guys, I'm happy to finally announce a deal that has been going on behind the scenes for several months now. Matthew Kriske (aka "Kriske") has purchased 51% of Big Time Attic, effectively making him a controlling partner in the company. Zander and I think it will be a great move not only for us as partners, but for the brand of BTA, which has lost some its "cool factor" since focusing solely on educational graphic novels.

Our new partner has promised to bring in "the Kriske touch," which will certainly mean a renewed focus on historical portraits, spray paint murals, and ink wash paintings of our friends. We've already received a six-figure advance from Miramax to produce a graphic novelization of Trainspotting, and although it's not official, Big Time Attic is considering using that money to purchase The Cartoonist Conspiracy from Steven Stwalley.

Welcome aboard, Kriske!

Best of luck to you guys. The Kriske empire continues to grow. Just recently he bought a chain of donut shops based out of North Carolina and promptly rebranded them Kriske Kreme. Don't second guess that name's brought in a 25% jump in revenue and its stock has risen as well. NYSE code is KKD.

I appreciate the offer, but I will not take any less than the full buck ninety-nine.

Wha...? I thought Kriske was off colonizing Mars with David Bowie?

I'm going to boycott of all things BTA until Harry Potter in shades is run out of town.
