Howdy one-and-all!

Apologies for the lack of updates for the last few weeks.  The traditional pre-Christmas deadline crunch meant that I had to devote my STARLOGGED time to extra hours at work.

Then the Christmas/ New Years period meant my mind - and body - were elsewhere.

And 2014 has seen another spike in work which, once again, is gobbling up my free time.

Usual service will be resumed in the near future.

Take care!

ITEM - REVOLUTIONARY WAR hit the stores this week.  I've got my copy (and the variant cover version too), although I've not had a chance to read it yet, so be sure to seek it out.  The DARK ANGEL one-shot ships next week.

ITEM - It was announced over Christmas that - predictably - STAR WARS comics will be coming home in 2015 when the license moves in-house and shifts from Dark Horse to Disney subsidery the House of Ideas.  No one saw that coming…

ITEM - Brits can go Partwork-crazy at the moment with new launches of a STAR WARS reference work (which looks suspiciously similar to one that appeared a few years ago and will go instantly out-of-date when the new TV shows and movies start to hit), another series of MARVEL HARDBACK GRAPHIC NOVELS (this time themed around characters and teams) and a MARVEL CHESS PIECE collection.  The first issues of all three are out now and discounted to lure in the punters.  There's no sign of a national release for the very promising sounding GERRY ANDERSON hardback graphic novels, reprinting the back catalogue of strip adaptations, yet… which is a shame.

  2. Hello There Mr Robot.

    I host a comic book podcast and I am prepping an episode on the Spider-Man UK strip from issues 607-610 of the UK weekly. As your site is awesome and has been helpful in the research, I want to give you a shout out on the show. Please let me know if this is OK with you or is you would rather we didn't.

  5. Hey Slow Robot,

    Hope everything is okay--I'm sure I'm not alone in missing your updates and dedication to all things geek. Hopefully you can get things back up and running soon--any update would be much appreciated for those of us who check in regularly.
