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". Finishing 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.
