Page 45 Review by Stephen
Yes, well, me too.
I just tweeted Uh-oh, Chongo! Its Danger Island next! and no one had a clue what I meant. If you do recognise the Banana Splits call-out then I am sorry you too have grown old.
It wasnt planned. I didnt stick it in my diary or down on my to-do list. But then I never write Get drop-down-drunk by midday! Still, these things happen regardless, as Im sure youll agree. Im glad I made maximum use of my hair while I still had it: a great many colours and multiple styles of quiff. It was me that destroyed the ozone layer, and I am so, so sorry, okay? When you shave it all off, its the last hair style you will ever have. If youre wise.
Anyway, penance. And I cannot thank Lizz Lunney enough for reminding me of my mortality in this beautiful card which I will send to all my friends in spite of the fact that theyve weathered the temporal storm far better than I. The bastards.
I have no idea why our intitial batch of Lizz Lunney cards didnt contain this or OMG!! Where Are My Shoes? but they sold so well that we reordered. Lo and behold, two upgrades, and I am reliably informed by lil Ms. Lizz that there are two brand-new designs on their way for 2013. I leave you now with our default review on account of I cant even feel my fingers.
FAQ: Do you sell greetings cards? WE DO NOW!
If Lizz Lunney was ever actually on a trolley, the cart has long since sped away, careered down the mountain and jettisoned Ms. Lizz into Page 45s gratefully open arms.
These, then, from the creator of DEPRESSED CAT: NINE MISERABLE LIVES and all those shiny badges we mercilessly market like boiled sweets in a bowl right next to the till. And the delightful thing is that so many of these are comics: short stories told through sequential art! Each classy card comes matt in two or more colours, and enhanced with a slither of foil. Also, envelopes: you get a free envelope! I cant tell you how much giving away free stuff sticks in my craw.
The cards werent in for five seconds before Jonathan bought Congratulations! Youre Not Dead Yet! and One Year Closer To Extinction for each of his parents. Im praying for a week free from irony.
Please note: 10% Student Discount applies to these too in the shop, making them the most affordable greetings cards you will probably find around town. Neat, eh? Alas, unlike our DEPRESSED CAT books, none of these cards come signed. YOU HAVE TO DO THAT YOURSELVES!
