Issue 1 Drip-Feed #1

Word on the street is that if you wander over to the Ladies & Gentlemen page, there's another tantalising page from Issue 1.  If you haven't read it yet, today's your lucky day; if you have, go on and have another look for old time's sake.

That's it for this week. If you're too impatient to follow along with the class and wait until the next page upload, why not just skip ahead and buy the whole darn-tootin' issue on the Emporium page? And of course, if you have yet to vote for the Eagle Award Huntsman's Challenge we've been nominated for, please go here and check out both contestants... then vote for The Land of All Sorts (wink).

Eagle Award Nominees

Morning all. Some of you may be disappointed that there was no Teaser Tuesday this week. For that we can only apologise and instead bring you some good news. Jordan is currently on vacation with his new in-laws but on his return shall be commencing the art work for Ladies & Gentlemen Issue 2.

Another bit of outstanding news is that the Water Closet are now EAGLE NOMINATED creators in "The Huntsman's Challenge," The Eagle Awards' New Talent Competition. We were ranked first and second for story and art respectively for our short story The Land of All Sorts!

It's now down to you guys to help us go over the edge and send us to the MCM Eagles Award Ceremony in May. You can read both the nominees here (or read ours by clicking on the image above) and cast your votes... don't forget to verify by email. This would really mean so much to us and we can't thank you all enough for your support. Fingers crossed!

Furthermore, up until the release of issue 2 we will be releasing a new page of issue 1 each week meaning that issue 1 will become completely free to read online! Wowzers!

All the Best



Sadly, despite being one of the contestants to actually bother showing up, we didn't win the contest. But congrats to Alex Wilson from the US who managed to clinch it (check him out at Aside from our woefully broken hearts, we did have an otherwise great weekend in London drawing barnyard animals in undergarments for Tony Lee (who was lucky enough to win an award for his work writing for Dr. Who), and it was nifty seeing our story printed in the back of the MCM Expo programme. Next time, Gadget! Next time...

...(although there will be no next time seeing as it was announced that the Eagle Awards are now defunct).

"Ladies Night"

Much like the characters themselves, this Lady featurette is a companion to The Gent’s, picking up where the other left off. He's not The Gentleman without his Lady, and she'd finish his sentences... if he ever started any. I can only hope to one day achieve such a beautiful knife-to-the-back-of-an-assailant's-neck relationship with my new darling lady wife.

Now that the artwork phase of Ladies & Gentlemen Issue 2 is officially underway, this will be the last of the character shorts for the time being. But don't worry -- we'll still be updating the blog with news and will drip feed you with weekly page doses of Issue 1 (for those of who you who still have yet to get your own copy)!
