    Skip weeks for SDCC are kind of a FREAKANGELS tradition, and even though we're so close to the end I know, I know -- we've got to do one last one.

    BUT. You really want to click that link. Paul's made us a gorgeous slipcase for the collected volumes, and you do not want to miss it.

    That aside, who all is at Nerd Prom this year? I'm obviously not -- who else is hiding from Nerd Prom with me?

    Guys -- A quick note of apology on this unexpected skip. The Monstrously Crushing San Diego Doom prevented things from happening as planned this week.
  2.  (10065.3)
    Hey guys, also sorry for the unexpected skip week! When I wrote the previous interlude message promising 6 uninterrupted episodes, I hadn't realised what a massive interruption San Diego is for the Avatar crew (in fact, I'd forgotten about San Diego entirely!) I guess this is one last pause before the wrap-up.

    On the plus side, the slip case that I know a lot of you were interested in is here! I put a lot into the design since it might well be the final piece of design work I do for Freakangels, which is a very strange thought.

    I'm hiding from the nerd prom.

    You aren't going to forget about Caption are you Paul?

    Here's a closer view of the slip-case, showing the fold-out of back front and spine for those who are interested in a more detailed look before they get one!

    XD I hope not. My excuse for forgetting about San Diego is that I'm not actually there and also half a world away...

    Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Slipcase! Oh... It says for the soft covers. I guess that means it won't hold the hardbacks?
  6.  (10065.8)
    Yeah, the hardbacks would be too large for it. I'm not sure if there are plans to offer a hardback-sized one too, but I could certainly tweak the design very easliy to accommodate for bigger spines, so I'll bug William about that on your behalf :)

    One day I'll be back for SDCC.

    I have said that every year since '05.

    That is a thing of beauty. I don't mind skip weeks if they bring us treats like this!

    Thank you Paul! There's no point cutting off the big spenders from the tasty merchandise!

    I thought it was supposed to be the penultimate episode... am I wrong? Is the next one the very last?

    Either way, I am glad for the slip cover. Thank you, Paul! And Thank you and Ariana and Mark and Warren for this whole trip! I'd take a bullet for you guys!

    No, you're right. Two episodes to go after this one :)

    I have no problem with unexpected skips. I think the slipcase is the final straw for me, i'm going to have to spend some money...
