I know I said I wouldn’t go back to this garbage heap another time…but he tasks me…. He tasks me… and I shall have him! I’ll chase him ’round the moons of Nibia and ’round the Antares Maelstrom and ’round Perdition’s flames before I give him up!
By now we all know the piece of human litter who stuck to our collective shoe last month: Rob Granito: thief, impostor, pathological liar.
Wait until you read this email that was sent around to a number of Comics blogs (Duy Tano of The Comics Cube alerted us on Facebook) last night from Granito…your jaw will unhinge. (Oh, and I’m mentioned by name! I’m famous! I’m famous!)
Dear Comics News, Blogs, and Journalists:
March 2011 was a month that the comics industry, and comics fandom, was not expecting! A month where suddenly comics websites became ‘TMZ-like’, and scandal and tabloid excitement erupted. This was due to the controversial Rob Granito.
We ask you to consider looking past personal feelings and judgement to consider the following:
-A Facebook Group about Robert Granito had over 3,000 members in less than a week
-Websites such as comicsalliance, Wired, and many others made Rob Granito a major headline
-An entire convention panel is due to Rob Granito, called ‘How Should An Artist React To Being Granito’d’?
So, regardless of personal judgement you must admit that Rob Granito creates controversy- and controversy attracts attention. Rob Granito gets attention. Rob Granito gets people talking.
The Blog owner at All Things Geeky even explained how he had thousands of visitors to his site when he had never experienced that before. Rob Granito has gotten more attention and caused more talking amongst his detractors and his fans than any other comics professional!
Now is YOUR chance to take advantage of this red-hot story. As Charlie Sheen has proven in the mainstream media, controversy sells. It has been proven, and suggested by the convention fans blog that Rob Granito is the Charlie Sheen of Comics. And just like Charlie Sheen caused MAJOR headlines with his controversial 20/20 interview, now YOU can get Rob Granito to sit for an interview for your site or blog!
Rob Granito will live up to his image as the bad boy of comics, who admits he has made some mistakes (but who hasn’t?) but also points out that comics fandom at large does not know the WHOLE story. Find out how Rob Granito began as an artist. Discover what his experience was with the legendary Dave Stevens. Find out what REALLY went down with Mark Waid. Learn how Rob feels about the comics professionals who have derided his name in the past few weeks like Ty Templeton Jamar Igle, Al Rio, and more!
We assure you Rob Granito will live up to his interview commitments. We guarantee candid, explanatory revelations. Rob Granito proved he shook up the world in March 2011! Now watch him light up the Spring comics schedule. “I will keep going to conventions”, he says. Also, why did BleedingCool decide to break the Rob Granito story out of nowhere? Why was it pursued with such a fever? “There is more there that you dont know about”, says Rob.
ALL WEBSITES: the following is a list of Rob’ interview fees
-e-mail interview (20 questions ONLY) $150.00 PayPal
-30 minute phone interview $200.00 PayPal
-1 Hour Phone or Skype interview $250.00 PayPal
Thank you for your time. We look forward to working with you.

Forget asking for money to do interviews, or claiming that Rob’s internet aliases and sock puppets are “fans” – forget not mentioning the facebook page with so many members is called “Rob Granito is a Fraud” – forget all that – he repeatedly offers guarantees of being candid and living up to commitments and talking about what really happened. THAT’s what I love most. These wacky kids’ only notoriety comes from being proven liars and frauds, but this time, when there’s money involved…this time they’ll tell the truth.
Two quick last notes:
1)If you’d like to know how Rob really feels about the way Al Rio,” Jamar Igle” and myself are treating him online, I’ll save you the hundred bucks. He doesn’t like it, and he thinks we’re big bullies.
2) The primary reason I posted this blog is because of something emailed to Duy Tano’s COMICS CUBE website last night.
“Please don’t do another newsstory or headline about Rob Granito on your website then without consulting us.”
In light of Granito’s heartfelt plea to not do another headline about the Granito family shame unless we consult with them first, I feel it’s my duty to post another headline about Rob Granito without consulting them.
He can go to hell.
Ty the Guy.
