With text and image sampled extensively for 2016's Spurious Purple
, "tale from wellerverse" 'Ultimate Legend' was first published as a
pamphlet in March 1997. Self-published by Visual Associations, eleven more tales were described by Weller as a "comic book series".
in the last month of the 20th century, one dozen completed partworks
were produced as limited edition paperback book September 2000.
A completed artist's book
designated to Mike Weller— Mike Weller's Space Opera
was published using little press internet promotion. Supposedly the fourth part of writer
MJ's "Doomed Boy" tetralogy (misspelled "tetraology"continuallyby a
Mike Weller alterity). In Space Opera
, MJ's graphic novelist
character Nick Muir creates deadbeat failure Mick/Mike Weller as cartoon
subcharacter—ultimate opposite of MJ. Mick Weller, a fourth alterity, a
no-confidence man paranoid conspiracy theorist as ridiculous as
character MJ and his make-believe literary grandeur. Nick
Muir is created by Weller as graphic novelist cipher—a composite
caricature of success the form gained in popular culture beginning late 20c.
And the colour of the card Mike Weller chooses to cover his perfect bound "space opera". Glorious purple—pre-spurious hue.
