    Yeah, it's a skip week. This one kinda blindsided us, just one of those deadlines that didn't quiiiiite go according to plan. But the GOOD news is that it's my understanding that Avatar were going to sit on these until the next skip week, and you did not want to wait for this, did you?

    Seriously, is that not perty? And there's another new bag and a travel mug at the main page, oh yes.

    UPDATE: And we're sold out of the Field Bag. Told you to move fast. We've still got some of the Map Bags, but everything is moving real quicklike...

    I'm pretty short on extra brain this morning -- this week has just been a sea of crap deadlines and mainlining Red Bull to keep limping. How's everyone else?

    Damn you! I had to console myself with retail therapy. There's one less Field Bag in the store.

    Typically, the day before and the day after my day off were glorious weather, but my day off was wet and cloudy. So instead of going to the zoo we took Joe for his first swim. He was underwhelmed. We then went shopping, so I bought some new DM's as the re-soles are falling off my shoes. It's a short working week next week at least.

    Now time for the Friday comic run. Let's see if IC2 and FA vol 2 hardback have hit GOSH!

    Shipping to the UK is $30 :( It's not worth it for just a T-shirt or mug, but slightly more worth it for the high end items.

    I was gonna get a bag but nevermind! Thanks for looking it up for me (was too lazy).

    Hey maybe you can have a merch stand at the London Expo! You now have 2 volumes you can sell as well as the extra goodies!

    I recommend the bag to anyone. I got the first one and carry my "man purse" everywhere. Being functional is a plus, but the real fun is explaining to the normal people out there what the hell a "Whitechapel" is. This should be even more entertaining with the word "Freakangels".

    god dammit...i miss my fifty percent discount through Diamond.I wants that bag!
    i cry now...I also cry because it's a skip week...

    The mug is very tempting but sadly, not tempting enough for the shipping. Curses!

    This week has been pretty good - I finished at my old job yesterday and the sun is shining now on the first of my four days of 'in between job' holiday while I eat fruit salad (with a lot of cream, which probably negates the healthy aspect...oh well.) and do some chores before going to an exhibition.

    Oh and I beat Ticketmaster to death with a pointy stick and came out with Regina Spektor tickets for June. Zictory!

    Can we get more info on the bags, like a photo of the interior, and their measurements or a sense of scale in those pictures? I really want one but I am a girl with lots of purses and I'd like to know what I'm getting to avoid functional redundancy. And are they soft canvas, or stiff? Do they have lots of pockets and things?

    Edit: Never mind, info is in the clickable links. That's what I get for shopping on my iphone. Big bag is mine now, yay!

    far more than mere consolation, the opportunity to acquire a long coveted field bag has provoked the release of slightly more adrenaline and enjoyment than the image of a nearly decapitated and thoroughly eviscerated refugee screaming: "CHIKKINZ!!!"

    anyway... thanks for bringing it back around. I know you did it just for me. :)

    I totally would have bought the field bag. Oh well. Try to make a go for the man purse map bag.

    eta: Nope. Shipping's killing that idea. Why do you people come out with such wonderful toys? Why must I want them all? Erg!

    It's okay, I still love you.

    I clearly should not have waited to check with the boyfriend before buying him a field bag. Are you going to make more? We wants it, we do!

    Hi! I'm totally new, but I love the comic (my word, could I come across any more geeky?). By the time I woke and checked for my FreakAngel fix, the big bags were gone. Is doing a second run ever considered? My laptop is furious at me for sleeping in and missing the stylishness that the big bag would offer it.

    i am torn - there is internal giggling at the purchase of the map bag and reality lurking around the corner telling me that was money spent. well spent. but still.

    hee hee hee hee

    thanks for pretties that make me happy! and just in my size, too!

    g'morning, all!

    Id love to have some t-shirts, mugs or bags. But $30 for shipping to the UK? This makes me sad. o.o

    They were all gone before I was even awake, wtf? Damn you early risers and people that live in earlier time zones.

    I woke up and the damn Field Bag was already sold out. How much was it anyways? Maybe it was $5000 and I won't feel so bad...

    Seconded: "More...Field...Bags..."

    Damnit, this is what I get for living in CA and not getting up bloody early like Ariana does! I love that bag, I want that bag... they must make more!
