Hopefully we're not being too presumptuous in creating the topic...
Anyway! First things second:

November 10th - Revelation cover
Hey, it's completely new! We were kind of looking forward to seeing the return of Looming Bel™ (price two shillings from all good drugstores). Instead, he's a shadow and the "camera" is looking at the scene from the other side... still, shiny as usual. And you could always use the old cover (or a redrawn one) for the missing volume cover...

Willow looks, I dunno, plump in this picture... Looking forward to new stuff!

Silly Tyris, drugstores don't charge in shillings. Chemists charge in shillings. Or at least they did before shillings were eliminated when Britain adopted a decimal-based monetary system.

And about how many pages of the old Revelations chapter do we have before hitting completely new material? I've lost track, and Lady took down the old ones. Not only that, she's clever enough to have used her robots.txt file to prevent the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine from archiving snapshots of her site. Razz

The phrase was stolen verbatim from The Goon Show, so take your grievances up with Spike Milligan.

Besides, if you're claiming that "drugstore" is an American term, then we present the following evidence:

It was about twenty, give or take...

Superdrug is a chemist. Drugstore is a generally US term. Spike Milligan was probably using an uncommon term for comic effect, as the Goons often did.

And the cover is nice =D

My next move was going to be pointing out that I never once heard a Brit use the word "drugstore" during the two years I lived there. But it's even better to get backup from a native. Thanks, Space. ^_^ Wanna help me track down this "Spike Milligan" person and explain to him the error of his ways?

I like the flagstones in the cover. None of Bel's minions have to mow the grass in their hallways. Plus they get dental insurance. >.>

Unfortunately for the world of comedy, Spike Milligna, that famous typo, passed away some years ago. You'd do well to look up some of his work. Old Goon Shows are a good place to start. The humour is highly surrealist, and YMMV, but he's well worth checking out.

Is Spike Miligan the guy who had 'I told you I was sick' written on his gravestone?

Topic, yeah was the title of this chapter always Revelation? I thought it was Revelations.

But the cover is fantastic, I want more.

Nope, Revelation, just like the book of the Bible.

I think for some reason it has been stuck in my head as Revelations. This is going to take some getting used to.

According to the fount of all knowledge, it's "Duirt mé leat go raibh mé breoite", Irish for "I told you I was ill."

New thread is kewl - I was gonna do it last night, but I forgot!

And the name of the chapter was always just "revelation", even way back when - RevelationS does roll of the tongue nicer though Wink

:3 yaaaay! <3 .... how long have I been waiting for the new material? XDDD Ah, I am VERY excited about this.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, isnt 2009 the year in which your Seven Seas contract is up and you can self publish Earthsong? ^_~

I think at the very least, ES needs to become a Saturday morning cartoon series Smile
Oooo, very creepy looking cover.
Wow, thank you for posting the wallpapers, Lady! That colouring job deserves a close up!

Loving the looming Bel shadow. We can even see evidence of his spiky collar. Smile I love the perspective you used for this cover Lady, not the easiest angle to go from. Very nicely done.
