RE: Launch

Hey everyone and welcome to the new and improved Across the Counter.

What's improved?

Well, the links to my right are ALL fixed for one. There's a lot of good stuff out there and these are just some of the sites I use / visit often.

What, you want more? Fine.

The new URL is www.acrossthecounter.co.uk, this means you will never have to type in blogspot again (unless you really want to, in which case you still can. See, choices, it's what life is all about).

So what's new?

The header up above was designed by top-notch graphic illustrator Matt Boyce, as I'm sure you could tell from his previous comic work he has quite an eye for design and sequential story-telling. So, three cheers for Boyce.

But these are all just surface changes surely?

Yes, they are. For if it's not broke, don't fix it. But that's hardly the same thing as never evolving is it ;) Watch this space.

Man this week has been the longest feeling wait for comics I can remember.

Me again, just to say I wont be in tomoz to pick up my stuff, got an exam, but I'll be in on friday, if possible can you slip a copy of Casonova #1 in with my pulled stuff if you have any shelf copies left.
Oh and I now think I've become a Vertigo addict, and I'm enjoying comics way more than I was a few months ago because of it.

Yeah, Vertigo are wicked. i was actually thinking of getting the vertigo logo tattooed as the entire range has been such an important part of my life and influences (Hellblazer, Preacher, Transmet, Sandman, Y, Fables, Amertican Virgin, DMZ are all the cream of the industry), but I think if I did that I would never get a job working for them. It creates a barrier between "fan" and creator too much.
No worries on the casanova, and give me an email so I have your e-address.
