Fishtank Castle Annual 1983

From the Tarantulas himself (this went live last night EDT):

 The (30 year?) wait is almost over !! From the lonely toll of midnight UK time (the not quite as lonely toll of 7pm EDT) Fishtank Castle will re-appear !!  

Pre-orders for 'Fishtank Castle Annual 1983' will remain open for 24 hours ONLY - after which it's gone FOREVER (unless you're at ToyCon UK next year - might have a few there..;) See you at 12 !

As you may have seen elsewhere I'll be taking pre-orders for these from Friday night - £25 each plus shipping and strictly limited to 24 hours.. 

Right now I'm applying finishing touches and it's tempting to post some of the content - but I want the first time you see this stuff to be in print - just like opening a brand new annual as a kid - so no previews sorry.  
Roughly divided in two, the first half is an affectionate tribute to the annuals I loved as a kid. All the comics have been re-coloured 1983 style ( no lens flare ;) and the latest chapter 'Destiny of the Nibbler' rounds the story off (wait till you see the last panel)..There are contributions from a few people you know well - some of whom have beards ;)
The second half is an archive section and comprehensive full colour checklist of Nibbler releases since 2009 - including headers and other archive material - all wrapped up in a classic hardback cover.  
Really hope everyone's into this and will support the project - it's something I've always wanted to do.
Chris has really been pouring everything into this project, and it's on track to go down as one of the most entertaining things to come out in years. At nearly 70 pages, this beefy book is sure to be peppered with that classic Tarantulas wit and loaded with crazy creativity. Also, as Chris stated above, some of us other nerds may even have a thing or two to contribute.
I was late posting this (my brain is fired from shipping), but there is still a little time to get in on the fun!
Congratulations Chris! We are all psyched to get our paws on this baby!
