Yep, you may have seen these things in the latest Previews catalog...or you may have not. Hence, why it's time to give these things a plug on the blog now that I have the luxury of being home and not on a plane every 5 minutes...
Chris Ryall Editor in Chief/ Head Obligatron of the Ursula Cluster on Gastrex Prime just put em up on his blog ( which you really should check out for lots of cool sneak peeks at a whole range of things ), but naturally, since I designed the things I get to show a few more nifty shots.
Now remember, if you want these, you're probably going to have to go up to the counter and *ask* your friendly retailer. My stuff is not Spider-man comics. They won't magicaly get them in for you unless they know someone wants them, so let them know! The order code to tell them for the pint glasses is: NOV08 4122
Since I'm a lazy bugger, this is what Chris wrote about them:
"Everyone agrees that Ben Templesmith's WORMWOOD, GENTLEMAN CORPSE reads better after you've had a couple of pints. Or maybe it's that Ben looks better after a couple bitters? I forget. Either way, Wormwood has long professed his love for the dark stuff in the pages of his comic, so we figure it's time to help enable more home-drinking. In January, we're going to offer actual merchandising, which is a bit rare for us (nary a Zippo lighter, shot glass or DOminatrix-brand Real Doll in our catalog right now)--a set of four WORMWOOD pint glasses, each adorned with new art from Ben (the package itself will also feature some new Wormy art).
The Guinness (or Boddington's, if you non-corpse gentlemen prefer blondes) is extra, but at least now you can toss that old paper cup and impress the sig. other in your life. And if they're not impressed at the start, they will be after they've emptied a few of these glasses.
You can even develop some Wormwood drinking games:
# Take one drink every time Wormwood does
# Take two drinks every time someone refers to Mr. Pendulum's lack of genitals
# Take three drinks every time a tattoo comes to life
# Take four drinks every time you see some tentacled beastie
# Take five drinks to make the Leprechaun Queen look attractive
# Pound the rest of your beer every time Wormwood switches bodies
And so on...
The glasses are offered in the January issue of Previews, Diamond order code NOV08 4122.
