Long time no see. It's been a whirlwind over at Water Closet headquarters! Last time we saw you we had just gone to print with our mighty anthology and were about to head off to Thought Bubble. We got the chance to meet some of our fine contributors while we were there and give them some copies of the book, still warm from the printing machine. They were only delivered (by hand!) to us that morning by the omnipotent Stuart Gould, and nothing compares to that feeling when we first opened the first box and laid eyes on the beauts. It was a treat to share that with many of you, and get such positive feedback from passers by.
Sitting directly to our left was Adam & Hillary Steel, the fine folks from Darkmook Paper Miniatures. Adam was kind enough to do a Gentrified version of his insanely fun tabletop combat game for the back of the book (pictured below sans Were-Hyenas, of which there are 4). For those of you awaiting the board on which to play, hold on to your butts because it will soon be available right here for free download. You can print it out, cut out your paper figurines and have a ball.

Weren't at Thought Bubble, you say? Where can you get your hands on a copy of The Irregulars, you ask? Well, despite selling well at the convention, we still had too many books to be able to transport them back to Bristol, so at the moment our stock is in the capable hands of the Travelling Man comic shop in Leeds. From there they will be distributed to the other Travelling Man shops (Manchester, Newcastle, York) and back down to us. Once that happens we will finally be able to ship out copies to all the very patient individuals who lent us their talents for the book, and to those interested in buying online.
So watch this space and we'll let you know when we have our books back and ready to go! In the meantime, go read some comics and them make some comcis. I leave you with a comission I did of a battle damaged Gent...
