Ever on the ball with things pertaining to our own neglected publications, we’ve only just come across this post by nice guy in comics, Kenny Penman, for the Forbidden Planet Blog, where he’s placed our book The Great Unwashed at number 3 in his best graphic novels of 2012, just behind the immense Building Stories by Chris Ware and equally superb Love and Rockets, New Stories 5, by Los Bros Hernandez. To say we’re honoured and chuffed at this doesn’t really cut the (Pat) mustard, but we are and hopefully this kind of praise and recognition will eventually help get our book out further to the gasping public, craving for tales of paranoid pirates, terrible teenage poets, kitchen-sink-marmalade-on-cheap-sliced-white drama and dysfunctional American dynasties!
Just in case you missed Alby Figgs staring in his own, pretentiously colour-themed, Bafta neglected ‘arthouse’ trilogy, Arthouse Bleu, Coffee House Brun and Artehaus Weis, ketchup now just to say ‘you were there, first’. Or second or third or…
Warren will be signing copies of the exclusive, elusive, infusive (?) new (ish) Pleece Brothers graphic novel, The Great Unwashed, published by Escape Books this Saturday the 8th of December at Gosh Comics, 1 Berwick St, London W1F 0DR, from 5-6 pm.
Also, those crazy fools at Gosh have given me permission to scribble all over their windows in celebration of this momentous event.

This week, everybody’s favourite septuagenarian street sage (?), Alby Figgs, gets down with the kids in the arcade for a run-through of recent and not so recent tele-visual broadcasting history.
And if you missed last week’s palm-fringed outing, check out Alby in shades in Canned Heat, still showing here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-2r
This week’s Alby Figgs episode sees Alby in ‘Day of the Dead’. Will there be zombies, skeletal automatons emerging from the graveyard, ghoulish apparitions scaring 50 shades of shite out of us? Or, just a man with a handy hankie to hand? It doesn’t get much more rock ‘n’ roll than this! No, honest, it doesn’t!
This week’s Alby Figgs episode sees the tension mounting, as Alby confronts (scarpers from) his ‘Nemesis’. Could it be? Is it possible? Who’d ‘ve thought? Where’s his washboard? Et cetera. Catch the latest brand new episode here http://wp.me/s2xlpi-nemesis
This week’s Alby Figgs episode, ‘Going Albyground’, sees Alby face an unwelcome truth on the Tube. Will he be deterred? Can he overcome years of London Transport’s antisocial conditioning?
The latest Alby Figgs episode sees Alby take a stroll down ‘Memory Lane’. Yeah, I know, hard to believe, but true! Follow the footsteps of Geezer Gus, Dolly DD and Ted Turncoat the Teddy Boy Tailor, right here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-25
And in case you missed last weeks thrill engorged instalment, ‘Milk Bar’, here’s a handy link to that particular dairy flavoured gem http://wp.me/p2xlpi-20
Yes, he’s a big fan of the local library! The Library of the Subconscious, of course. This week’s Alby episode, ol’ Figgsy manages to get Bob the Builder and French philosopher, Jean Baudrillard in the same sentence. Has this ever been done in comics form before? And if not, why not?!
