RIGHT HO, JEEVES #1 now on preorder

A Binge at Brinkley is the first issue in the RIGHT HO, JEEVES series, which tells of the travails of the inimitable Bertie Wooster, who is summoned from the comforts of #3A Berkley Mansions, London to Brinkley Manor by his imperious Aunt Dahlia. Love is in the air and Wodehousian shenanigans are afoot, as Wooster is not the sole guest at the manor, which is also playing host to the fairy-gazing Madeline Basset as well as the famous newt-fancier Augustus Fink-Nottle.

Adapted from the classic Wodehouse novel by comics legend Chuck Dixon and drawn by SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN illustrator Gary Kwapisz, A Binge at Brinkley is issue #1 of 6 in the RIGHT HO, JEEVES series. 24 pages. $2.99.

Now available for preorder. RIGHT HO, JEEVES #1: A Binge at Brinkley will be released on January 29. The series is currently on schedule to release issues on a monthly basis. Please note that because Right Ho, Jeeves is only in the public domain in the United States, this comic is only available from Amazon.com for US customers. We have presently have an offer in to the Wodehouse estate to acquire the necessary permissions to produce comics and graphic novels for the works that are not in the public domain.

UPDATE: Very pleased to see there is genuine interest in this experiment.

Nice cover. Will be preordering the moment it's up here.

Outstanding!

Blogger The Overgrown Hobbit January 12, 2018 6:38 AM  

These I want to own in hard copy as well.

Blogger Matt January 12, 2018 6:40 AM  

Now, this art looks nice.

Blogger Dave January 12, 2018 7:48 AM  

Pre-ordered.

Blogger Dave January 12, 2018 7:50 AM  

I'd buy a series subscription too (Comixology only?)

As I recall, his Aunt Agatha was the imperious one; Aunt Dahlia was his buddy (but still caused havoc in his life).

Hey Vox,

You missed your calling. You should have been a movie producer.

Blogger VD January 12, 2018 8:50 AM  

You missed your calling. You should have been a movie producer.

Who is to say I won't ever do that? But producing movies and producing games is not entirely dissimilar, Chris Roberts's inability to make the transition notwithstanding.

As I recall, his Aunt Agatha was the imperious one; Aunt Dahlia was his buddy (but still caused havoc in his life).

They were both imperious. But Agatha scared him. Dahlia only bossed him around.

Well, I guess I know where my next free $2.99 will be going.

If I were to define the ultimate success of Castalia House, it would be working with Mel Gibson's Icon Productions.

One of my favorite series! Will a physical copy be printed?

Blogger VD January 12, 2018 9:10 AM  

Will a physical copy be printed?

Yes, we're working on it now.

Blogger pyrrhus January 12, 2018 10:43 AM  

I'm waiting for the printed version, will put it on the coffee table. Our Westy's name is Bertram Wilberforce Wooster, no kidding!

Anonymous Kat January 12, 2018 11:05 AM  

When the printed version comes out I'll be ordering it for my teacher/lit nerd friends.

Looking forward to this!

Blogger Robert What? January 12, 2018 11:28 AM  

@Vox, I've been a Wodehouse fan for decades. Never guessed you are one too.

Blogger Tank January 12, 2018 11:31 AM  

Ordered and looking forward to it; seems like a great fit for print to graphic novel format.

Blogger James Jones January 12, 2018 11:47 AM  

Is it true that I won't be able to buy this in the UK?

Blogger Markku January 12, 2018 11:51 AM  

Not at present, true. The copyright expiration time is different there. If we are able to make a satisfactory deal with the Wodehouse estate, then it will become available.

Blogger William Meisheid January 12, 2018 11:52 AM  

I may be missing something but I didn't see how to give this as a gift, only how to buy it for my own Kindle reader. Anyone know what I am missing?

Blogger Dave January 12, 2018 12:16 PM  

I didn't see how to give this as a gift

It's a pre-order? Are you in the US?

Blogger William Meisheid January 12, 2018 3:22 PM  

Yes, in the U.S. So you can't give pre-orders as a gift?

Planning to buy the print editions for all these. Something that can be shared in meatspace.

Blogger James Jones January 12, 2018 4:27 PM  

Gutted. But thanks.

Blogger Nate January 12, 2018 8:34 PM  

I very much wish to congratulate y'all on this success.

Are they going to be collected into volumes in print? If so I anticipate buying a quite a few. I come from a large family, and most of us and our kids who are old enough are huge Wodehouse fans.

Anonymous Mycroft Jones January 13, 2018 3:52 AM  

Looks like I can't pre-order it in Canada. The link shows as "not available for sale" not any hint about pre-ordering.

Blogger VD January 13, 2018 5:46 AM  

Are they going to be collected into volumes in print?

Both the 24-pagers and the full 144-page collection will be in print. We have not decided yet if the full collection will be print-only, print + digital, or print+digital+KU.

Blogger Manach January 14, 2018 1:59 PM  

Unfortunately this does not look to available for pre-order for EU customers on Amazon.
