#ConManKen - Did He or Did He NOT Buy Little Monsters?

Wow. #ConManKen is never one to cease to surprise.

Jess Hunter is the new owner of Little Monsters, now called Little Monsters Entertainment LLC. Little Monsters Games & Comics LLC is still incorporated by Ken Whitman. So, there are now TWO Little Monsters. Following thus far?

Jess Hunter claims she purchased the store location and merchandise from a "Jim Sears", not Ken Whitman.

4440 S Hwy 27 Somerset, KY is the location of Little Monsters in either incarnation.

The WhitePages lists the following businesses at that location:

Mad Ox was both after an earlier incarnation of Little Monsters and prior to the Ken and Jess incarnations - or is it?

Is Jim Sears the business partner that Marcus King has alluded to in the past?

It seems to me that either nothing was ever sold, and Marcus defrauded the Tax Man...


The store was sold to Ken Whitman and now Ken, Marcus, Jess Hunter and Jim Sears are trying to defraud the courts.

Neither looks to be on the up and up.

Ah well, Ken always entertains.

Reminder - Tavern Chat Tonight - 9 PM Eastern - Oh My!

Tonight is a Wednesday Night and that means Tavern Chat. What are we going to talk about? I don't know all of it, but I do know SOME of it will be #ConManKen. Simply "because" ;)

Tavern Chat is held on The Tavern's Discord Server. Its a voice chat but you can simply listen if you want to. there is also an associated text channel, but that's mostly in addition to the voice channel.

Here's the link to join the server:


Far West makes Me Proud to be a Joker

The thing is, I don't see the unconscionable delay of Far West (nearly 6 1/2 years late and counting) as an achievement by Gareth. Instead, it is his albatross. Whatever he published prior to this fiasco is now tainted and his work as a freelancer now - well, I just hope he puts such funds to actually getting folks the print copies they paid for.

Almost as striking is the fact that he hasn't updated the Far West Kickstarter since May 1st, 2017.

How shall we celebrate on May 1st, 2018? I know - lets all NOT do something ;)

#ConManKen Goes to Ground - Deactivating Facebook Accounts - So He Can Finish Kickstarter Projects...

So, this has nothing to do with Kenny being served. I mean, he's going to work on Kickstarter projects. He says so, so it must be true. Kenny never lies.

Let's see. Since being served Ken has "sold his business" and is deactivating his Kickstarter accounts (I THINK he still will have one left, as last I checked he had two as Ken Whitman). Kenny is looking to escape justice it seems. Ken, why don't you just close your eyes and cover your ears - might be as effective and be a whole lot simpler.

We may need to GoFundMe a Private Eye to keep an eye on #ConManKen ;)

Edit: Forgot to add my last words to Kenny - Get yer shinebox!
