your turn! join vern and lettuce in pickle rye!

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!


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 (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

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 if you would like an invitation!
