Comic Fan Demographic Targeted
For ABC's Wife Swap TV Show

Here at the Isotope we get a lot of amusing and unexpected things in our in-box. Like recently finding out that the terriffic Caustic Truths Magazine has listed the Isotope as a official friend of the Sounds Of The Underground Tour, for example.

But this is perhaps the most unexpectedly amusing thing we've seen in quite a while...


Are you or your family comic book junkies? Do you go to comic conventions as a family? Maybe you own a store or have a huge comic book collection? If so, you could be on Wife Swap. Families featured on the show will receive a $20,000 honorarium. If you refer a family that is selected you will receive $1,000.

Wife Swap is a fascinating story of what happens when two couples see themselves and their partners in a whole new light. The New York Post says, "It should be called 'Life Swap' because it's not just the wives who learn something here. It's the families."

Potential families must live in the continental United States, but we ask that families who apply consist of two parents that have at least one child, over the age of 5 and under the age of 18, living at home full-time. To submit for the show please call 212-404-1470 or email (preferred method) a family photo and description to

If you are a family unit (two parents with children) looking for a great learning experience, I would love to hear from you today!

I am also attaching a flyer. Feel free to post it if you would like.
