My First Evangelion Doujinshi, Up for Auction

Read the first couple of pages here.

I finished this aaaa...bout a week ago? And finally put one up for auction on eBay to see how well it does before trying to sell the rest. I had intended to sell around five or so at Anime Fest, but I was too late to make it into the Bizarre Bazaar and the Art Show didn't want my kind. $12 plus shipping may seem like a lot for a twelve-page book, but since I only ordered 20 copies published and wanted to make sure they were the highest quality possible, it cost me over $4 a copy and I have no idea if I'll ever sell all (or any) of them. I'll probably be lucky to break even. Also, remember that there are only twenty copies in existence, some of which belong to members of Happy Puppy Circle (that's... that's the doujin circle's name). And they're all signed and numbered from one to twenty. I know people under 18 can't use eBay without getting a parent to bid for them, so I'm going to set up a Google Checkout thing once I get a proper webpage for Happy Puppy Circle up.

Even if you have no interest in buying, I'd like opinions as to how the doujin and its eBay page look in terms of quality and aesthetics.

And before the inevitable "THIS IS ILLEGAL YOU'RE USING COPYRIGHTED CHARACTERS" reply, remember that doujinshi is not only condoned, but extremely common in Japan. Gainax in particular is extremely relaxed about copyrights (Khara, on the other hand...). Also, this story's ridiculous and sarcastic enough that it's unmistakably a parody. If Meet the Spartans is kosher, so is this. Oh god, did I just compare something I wrote to Meet the Spartans? GRAAKAAAAUAUGHEAHKERH.

THANKS FOR HELPING WITH TRANSLATIONSTUFFS, SSD! I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU, AND YOU'RE ALWAYS SUPER SPECIAL! Also, Reichu helped a bit, too.

If this succeeds, expect a doujin from me sooner or later.

EDIT: saw the preview pages. I have to say, excellent artwork.

On that note. I am trying my hand on 2 or 3 variations of Shin(ji)ko fanart and stories. One is I am going to try to go the Ranma 1/2 route and have Shinji switching between girl and boy type somehow, the other is a merging of The Wallflower and NGE with Shinji and the others taking Sunako and the original casts place, and the final will be a Samurai theme with Shin(ji)ko taking the role of a geisha/Imperial daughter(hosewife), or female Samurai and being the love interest of a Samurai Kaworu. What do you think?

I lol'd pretty hard at the preview pages, and your setup on eBay was genius.

This looks amazing. How long did it take to make it? Both eBay page and doujinshi look groovy by the way.

If I hadn't just spent all my money on AI merchandise I would definitely buy one. Will you keep re-listing them after they end as long as you have more stock?

I probably won't list anymore on eBay for a while if this one doesn't sell, but I do intend to create a website for Happy Puppy Circle and probably make them available for sale with Google Checkout or something regardless. I'm also planning to get a panel in the art room at the next nearby anime convention (which will... probably be next year) at which this and whatever else I come up with by then will be made available for sale.
