Today's the official launch date! At last, Vern and Lettuce, the comic book, has landed! Vern and Lettuce would like to mark the occasion by launching their own online magazine, set in their world of Pickle Rye. It's a town without humans, where animals get up to all sorts of shenanigans as well as going about their day-to-day lives.
...And YOU can contribute, whatever your age!



I'm going to try to make some pages (such as this one in progress), but I've love people to write and draw their own! If and when I get a few pages, I'm going to post it on my website as an online magazine that everyone can read. Go on, you know you want to! :D
Edit: Here's a cheat sheet chart of all the tower block's residents!



**HOW TO SEND YOUR PAGE!**

Page size: A5 (That's a sheet of A4 folded in half: 148mm × 210mm / 5.8in × 8.3in)

Please include on a separate paper or in the e-mail: Your name, age, your town, and a contact e-mail or address (We won't publish your e-mail or address online).

By e-mail: Scan your page at 300dpi and e-mail the jpeg file to sarah at jabberworks.co.uk (not larger than 2 MB, please!) Put THE PICKLE in the subject heading.

By post: Send your page to:

Serge the Ferret
The Fleece Station
Old Police Station
114 Amersham Vale
London SE14 6LG
England


Unfortunately we won't be able to return pages, so send a high-quality copy if you want to keep the original. Feel free to send more than one page if you like. The editor reserves the right not to include certain submissions; please keep in mind an all-ages audience. The contributor retains the copyright on his or her submission; we will contact you for permission if we at some point decide to create a printed version of the magazine.

Edit: New link to online magazine and some printable templates if anyone (particularly very young people) are having a hard time with the dimensions.



You can buy copies of Vern and Lettuce at Forbidden Planet International, Gosh! Comics (bookplate edition), Bookseller Crow, Newham Books, Amazon and loads of other places! Please ask them to get it in if you can't find it at your local shop!

If you like it, please think about writing a review, either on one of the major websites or on your own blog! We're having an official launch party in central London on Thurs, Oct 21. It's not going to be an open general invitation (due to space limitations) but please drop me a line (sarah at jabberworks.co.uk) if you would like an invitation!

Yay!
Sarah! This is fabulous and I want to buy a copy. Which site are your US chums saying is most reliable? I see it's on Amazon.co.uk but not Amazon.com. For the latter it is being sold by an independent bookseller without a perfect rating, so I thought I'd check with you. . .

Thanks!

Re: Yay!
Thanks so much!

Yes, I think Amazon or one of their sellers is probably the best way to get it for now, unless there's a comic shop near you that does imports. I'm planning to visit NYC and Portland in April and bring some along, but that's not for ages!

Hoorah!
The Pickle cover looks great in color! I think I know what I'm going to submit...

I checked out Amazon for the V&L book, and nearly ordered it from Net Treasure -- but then saw that it would take a month to arrive... so I cancelled the order and am checking with Gosh to see if they'll ship a bookplate edition to the US. I'm SO EXCITED that there is a Vern and Lettuce book!!!

Re: Hoorah!
Yay, thanks, David!! That would be AMAZING if you submitted something!

Ooh, do let me know if Gosh says they'll export, I'd be very interested to know.

Re: Hoorah!
Hey folks,

Gosh! certainly will do international mail-order on the bookplate editions. Drop us an email at info@goshlondon.com for details!

Cheerio!
