The Dispensers have been Short Circuited...

Just like that, a full year of Short Circuits is in the books! An immense amount of creativity and goodwill has gone into these four issues. This year has been a team effort in so many ways and Short Circuit has been no exception - it's now with great excitement that we share the new issue with you all! Whether reading in print from our Dispensers or online at our website, we hope you enjoy Short Circuit #04.

And as always, we want to send a big thank you to our contributing authors.
