Well we had Paris yesterday… or Blackpool… or Las Vegas… anyway, it’s a loose tie-in!

Many thanks to Tat Wood who sent these in ages ago but have been sitting around due to site problems. Which, I might add, are still being looked at – I swear!

Art Direction: Look it will just be like every cover you have ever seen but this time… they’re cat people! They’ll have everything a cat would normally have like fuzzy hair, cat mouths, pointy ears but no tails. Tails, I think would be a step too far! We don’t want people to be too embarrassed when they buy it!
