... I wrote one!

Yessums! I'm cock-a-hoop over this. Vertical Publishing have chosen to employ a short excerpt from my review of 'Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin', which I penned for the Anime UK News website, in their promotion for the latest volume.

Here's a link for those sufficiently interested. I'm not credited by name, but the blurb at the bottom of the grey column is from me.

This is one of those things that probably feels much cooler than it actually is. But I'm pretty much ecstatic to hear about it.

Apparently, the quote appears on the current print run of the latest volume as well.
Check out my DA page! Point! Laugh!

The coolness is entirely subjective fella, if you are happy, it's the coolest thing ever!  Congratulations!

Nice one HdE.

My only claim to fame is being 'interviewed' by an in-house optical magazine for work years ago.
Think David Brent in 'Inside Paper', just less sexy.

You guys are all such flamin' legends!

I've been fielding messages from people this evening telling me that, apparently, this is indeed a big thing. I'm still sitting here going 'wuh-UH??? Did that just happen?'

Really need to pick up them MSG:O hardbacks. They look utterly sexy, and congratulations for getting a review up on the back cover.
