Shadowline feat. Grit - in print!  

The Lulu editions of collected Grit are no more. Why? Because Shadowline is publishing us! Woohoo!

A brand spanking new Grit volume 1 (collecting episodes 1 - 5) is being published by the wonderful folk at Shadowline. Unlike the Lulu volumes, it'll be swanky lookin', with nice crisp printing!

You'll be able to find it in the March solicitations in Previews (January edition) in the Image Comics section:



So now you can buy Grit from your local comics shop or bookstore (wherever in the world you are!), or Amazon - ask your comic shop of choice to order you in one!

 

ETA: If anyone's been trying to email me over the last couple of months, my apologies. Our 'net computer has been hit hard with viruses, and we're still battling with the dying thing. I will sort out the "Buy" link on the Grit website as soon as I can. 

And yes, poor ep 19 is still coming. Promise.

Yes, next time I have news that I want to keep under wraps until I feel right about announcing it, I must remember to put a "Shhhhh! Wood" at the end of my posts! Or gag you.

;P
_w_o_o_d__w_o_o_d_ on January 14th, 2009 01:37 pm (UTC)
Heh, sorry...

But since it was in the Previews for everybody to see, with a full page, no less, I figured the cat was out of the bag. It's not like I had inside info or anything...
Trudy Cooper: old who rules_gertrude_ on January 14th, 2009 01:57 pm (UTC)
Yep - I have a tendency to not discuss things until they're an absolute certainty. I wouldn't even discuss it with my mates until it was all absolutely/100%/home-and-hosed happening.

It's a quirk.

But you're forgiven. ;)

ahahah
rated PG?
that must stand for pretty great cause i can't see it standing for parental guidance
maybe 1-5 was different though, i'll have to remind myself by finding a copy :)
Trudy Cooper: Nils pweeeep!_gertrude_ on January 14th, 2009 09:21 am (UTC)
1-5 are definitely the cleanest. The smuttier smut comes in much later on!
_w_o_o_d__w_o_o_d_ on January 14th, 2009 01:38 pm (UTC)
PG stands for Platinum Grit !

Can't wait to get my hands on more print copies, and definitely can't wait for nineteen! Any news on posters? I want merchandise!
Trudy Cooper: kate and andre piss-up_gertrude_ on January 14th, 2009 09:24 am (UTC)
Sorry, no merch as of yet. Last year was crazy busy for me, and there's so much that needs doing (*cough*website*cough*). I'll look into it once 19 is finally finished and online.
Jamie: Muppet - Kermit Flailuniformgrey on January 13th, 2009 06:47 pm (UTC)
This is wonderful news! I'll be keeping an eye out for it!

Arran McKennaazzamckazza on January 13th, 2009 10:47 pm (UTC)
Does this mean they will be reasonably cheaper as well??
If so then WOOOOOOOOT!!!

(if not then WOOOOT too)
Trudy Cooper: Nils pweeeep!_gertrude_ on January 14th, 2009 09:13 am (UTC)
It's gunna retail for $14.95, so not really. BUT it will be *much* better quality than the Lulu volumes. (For one thing, it's put together by people who know what they're doing, as opposed to...me)
gunslingerelite on January 13th, 2009 11:00 pm (UTC)
Hells yes. Will be putting my order in today.
Edward J Grug IIItedprior on January 14th, 2009 02:27 am (UTC)
Yay! I'll be picking these up!
Edward J Grug IIItedprior on January 14th, 2009 02:29 am (UTC)
Hey, do you have an ISBN for it?
Trudy Cooper: catweazle_gertrude_ on January 14th, 2009 09:10 am (UTC)
There will be one, but I've no idea what it is yet.
Gary Laukaeze on January 14th, 2009 02:27 am (UTC)
Wow, awesome news! Congrats!! Image Shadowline... noice! :)

Looks like I'll be getting yet another copy of my favourite all time Aussie comic.

Thanks Stikmeister! =D

"Although obviously not enough." Heh heh. Brilliant cover! This is an exciting development.
Trudy Cooper: nina yay!_gertrude_ on January 16th, 2009 05:56 am (UTC)
Thanks lady!
arabelarabel on January 15th, 2009 12:42 pm (UTC)
Aaaaaaah! Brilliant, Dave and I will probably buy a copy each or something. Then parade them through the streets.

I did try to drop you an email a little while ago, but wasn't sure if it made it through, which now makes sense... is it safe yet? Otherwise, uh, I could do some kind of bizarre note-passing excersize via Ben to Doug to you... which is clearly completely practical.

But anyway, congrats!
Trudy Cooper: boosh boys_gertrude_ on January 16th, 2009 05:52 am (UTC)
Yeah, email over the last few months has been a nightmare. Try my gmail one - name: funkmoppet. I've been using that one since it's reliable and not full of viruses and spammers.

And thanks, lovely!

Sweet, when's the next issue come out? :p
Kalashnicod: D'AW.heykidzcomix on January 16th, 2009 01:27 am (UTC)
Well, I DID tell you so.
Trudy Cooper: nina tree_gertrude_ on January 16th, 2009 05:46 am (UTC)
You did. I had my reasons for not believing (Good reasons- Backed up with decent evidence!), but you did tell me so.

Whoa, whoa, wait a frickin second here.

You guys are actually going to be in mainstream comic shops. Hot damn, I can have something else besides Batgirl put aside for me. And maybe, deadpool, deth something or other.

ALLLL RIGHT.
