One Week To Go!

Yeah, we understand that you’re a bit annoyed that you didn’t get an initial invite to the Robin Jarvis Great Grand (Re)Read, but it’s not too late to join up!

We hope that you all had a wonderful time over the Christmas / holiday season with exciting plans coming up for New Years!

We’ve been polishing mousebrasses and sharpening peelers madly over the last few weeks getting ready for launch and I think it’s no secret to say that we cannot wait to begin (re)reading The Dark Portal with you all next week.

For everyone who’s already lit up our comments section with your thoughts on front covers, illustrations, editions, plays of Robin’s work and other such stuff, we want to say THANK YOU! Keep it coming.

We’ll post our Myth and Sacrifice Spoiler Policy in a few days, so we can make it as fun for everyone, old Jarvis die-hards and new-to-the-folds alike. Then our first post on The Dark Portal will go up on Monday 2 January 2017. Yeah!

In the meantime, you have a great New Years’ and we thought we’d leave you with this Deptford Mice Trilogy trailer, which Mr Jarvis put together a few years ago when he discovered that he could actually draw his characters on a computer as well. While it shows some of the classic images, it also has a few that we’d never seen before (such as Piccadilly standing on Piccadilly tube station). Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the heads up, Matt. What welcome news you’ve brought for we who lurk on this side of The Dark Portal. We’ve all been waiting and now the end finally lies within our sight. The end? No, the beginning of the greatest story ever told. Believe me when I say that we are about to embark on not just one but many incredible journeys.

    I always did love the music which plays over the trailer. It makes me think of darkness creeping over the boundaries of the land and of the people who live there struggling to find the courage needed to stand and face. Which is so very appropriate for a trailer for The Depford Mice, huh?

    Writing, illustrating, computer graphics designing…is there no end to Robin’s list of talents?

    I hope that all of us have enjoyed a very Merry Christmas and followed it up with a most comfortable Boxing Day.


  2. There’s something I’ve been meaning to ask for a while…the Book of the Dead page, is that what I’ve a sneaking suspicion it’s intended for? Because if I’m right then oh boy…


    • Ah, well spotted. At this stage, I’ll say it’s an archive section for some special posts we’re going to write every month or so. Keep an eye out at the end of January and see whether your suspicions prove correct!
