Sleight of Hand....

 Hey guys, welcome back to teaser Tuesday. This week we have the first ever Ladies and Gentlemen Story (before we even called it that) and what is essentially the creation of Hex as an older version of himself.  For those of you who visited us at Thought Bubble you may have already seen it. It was originally published in an anthology call The Sorry Entertainer by Simon Moreton , a fellow small press creator and wearer of a fantastic beard. The paper was pretty successful and we even got a couple of mentions in some shining reviews. Check them out here




Now enough shameless self promotion. Here's the story. The concept for the story is a playing card so its meant to be read in rotation. I've post it twice, once right ways up and the other wrong ways down so you dont have to strain your neck trying to read the second half. Sorry bout that guys. But here at the Water Closet we love physical comics, trust us it really works if you're holding a real copy.

And here it is upside down so you can read the second half:

Stay tuned because next weeks One page story is another Hex one. See you in the funny books.

in the gutters but looking at the stars....

Hey Ladies and Gents, another post for you all here. Firstly some business, We sold out in Travelling Man Leeds and OK Comics., we are in the process of arranging some restocking but til then you can always order online from our emporium. JC (who coincidentally got engaged over Christmas, hoorah!) is working on our exclusive online one page stories whilst as of today I have finished the script for issue two.

To wet your beaks for that, we also featured in this little documentary about comics creation that some of our friends made as a third year project. Check it out here!

We've been given so much support from friends and family and would like to give a huge thank you to each and everyone of you. I hope you enjoy Ladies and Gentlemen as much as we enjoy creating it. See you in the funny pages folks.
