The UStream video of the webcomic launch event can be replayed here. We apologize for the quality - the video camera broke down just beforehand and this was all captured with the built-in camera on a laptop. I wasn't sure where it was during the event, so please ignore me when I briefly stand in front of the camera taking pictures.

I got an envelope yesterday from a class of 8-year-olds in a Birmingham school (the westerly one, not the one in the UK). They saw a newspaper article and browsed the webcomic and Zoo sites. (After all that, I can't ignore their teacher's request for a class visit!) Each student sent a note - this picture shows some of their illustrations. Green blobs of the Universe, unite!
;D ;D This is so  8) 8)

Hi Bill, children are always imaginative and creative. ;D ;D ;D When you see their delightful art work it makes every last bit of effort on the webcomic worthwhile . Thank you very much for sharing the children's astronomical art.  :) :) :)

This is actually the most FAQ at the moment in my mailbox...

All I know is that they were going to start shipping mid September (my parents don't have it yet either)! Not sure how long it'll take before they sent anyone's comic in particular and also no idea how long it'll take to get them to Eurpoe for instance from the US.

I got my copy a few days ago (as I needed to show it on national television here), so they're real. 8)

I hope they'll arrive soon!

Hey! I've got the comic! Looks great, but I haven't read all of it as yet...Quite complicated for myself, but worth persevering with. Awesome really! Excellent quality as well.
