Sleeves are well rolled up and getting my hands dirty with Sweeney Todd now. Here's the layout i did for the very first page. One down, 139 to go.....

Also, the first review of Frankenstein is up at They've reviewed all the new Classical Comics titles and says some very nice things about all of them, Frankenstein included.

Cheers Erika!

Hey Rich,
Oh right, i see. I don't think it's in the shops for another couple o' weeks, that's why i was scrathin' my head as to how you got a copy.

Hey Luke,
No i'm afraid that's all old fashioned pencil on paper sir, i just darkened all the lines so i could lightbox it easily. Sorry to disappoint.
