I. Friends L & M have a bunch of secret zines for the French Comic-Con next month, and it’s possible that I have a bunch of secret things in said zines.
II. Haven’t been much around lately and I’m trying to catch up on stuff. If you sent me a message/e-mail to which I haven’t answered, that means it has probably been buried under other messages and, me being me, you best send it again. I also might take some commissions soonish, if anyone fancy that.
III. Wai made a new (FULL COLOUR) Sherlock mini book and you should buy it.
IV. MX Publishing just published a (300-PAGE) book of Norman Schatell’s Holmes cartoons, which are basically my favourite Holmes cartoons. You can get it pretty much everywhere and you better.
A list of things:
Oh, I’m so glad to know that the Beeb is rebroadcasting it. Silly plots, awful puns, saucy jokes and rude songs! What’s not to enjoy. I have a dubious sense of humour, so it’s usually best not to take my word as gospel, but it is a very good burlesque series with a fine cast. Hudd’s Holmes, ‘the world famous toffee-nosed ponce’, is marvelously infuriating and I actually enjoy a lot Emmett’s (slightly over-the-top) Watson. Geoffrey Whitehead’s a curmudgeonly Prof and June Whitfield a first-class Mrs H. There’s (sadly) only six episodes, two of them online at the moment!
