Jimmyjack Toth – Toth’s Law Volume 4

Though it pains me to say it, I was unaware that longstanding MM favourite Wooden Wand had permanently given up the moniker and is now simply Jimmyjack Toth. Even more so when I realised that he had just released a fourth volume of Toth’s Law – after a gap of just over three years.
