An Embarrassing Blunder!

Published by under Titles

I provide advice about how to write novels, comic books and graphic novels. Most of my content applies to fiction-writing in general, but I also provide articles specifically about superhero stories.

I named both my products (the writing advice website and the comic book series) Superhero Nation.  I’d like readers to be able to Google one and not get confused with the other, so I’ll rename one.  Probably the comic, because changing this website’s URL would break of all of our incoming links.  Ick.

So now I’m just trying to come up with a placeholder title for a wacky office comedy about an accountant-turned-secret agent and his mutant alligator partner.  At this late hour, these seemed remotely acceptable. What do you think?

  • THE TAXMAN MUST DIE
  • [alternate word: accountant]

  • GARY MUST DIE
  • (Normally, I think “Gary” is far too bland a name to be used in a title, but I like the contrast between the normal name and the extraordinary phrase).

  • CLOSE ENOUGH FOR GOVERNMENT WORK
  • SANITY A PLUS, MARKSMANSHIP ESSENTIAL
  • DEATH COMES FOR THE TAXMAN
  • DEATH AND TAXES
  • DEATH AND TAXES (BUT NOT IN THAT ORDER)

If you’d like to suggest something else, I’d love to hear it.
