Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

Uncle Alice Presents...26 Mar 2013
'Uncle Alice Presents' is a new Kickstarter project created by Tom Sheppard ('The High Fructose Adventures of the Annoying Orange') and fully backed and featuring Alice himself. Starting with a 12 issue comic book series with the hopes to eventually make a TV series the stories are compared to classic anthology series like EC comics and 'Tales From The Crypt' but all featuring Alice in some way as the 'gatekeeper to the netherworld. There are lots of incentives to get involved ranging from copies of the comics to golfing with Alice and you can read all about it, see some artwork, and of course pledge some cash at the Kickstarter page. But first check out the really cool (and funny) pitch video above!
