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.
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a STAR WARS reference work (which looks suspiciously similar to one that appeared a few years ago and will go instantly out-of-date when the new TV shows and movies start to hit), another series of MARVEL HARDBACK GRAPHIC NOVELS (this time themed around characters and teams) and a MARVEL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.

Hello There Mr Robot.ReplyDelete
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.

Hey Slow Robot,ReplyDelete
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.
In the meantime, ex-Marvel UK editor John Freeman has just published a brief retrospective of Overkill which was launched 20 years ago...
