And popping down to London for the Prog 2000 signing, I managed to snag a signed copy. Mightily looking forward to reading this.

Only 3 chapters in, but this is a joy to read. Who knew Tharg was so entertaining?!
Makes this comics publishing lark sound like the Best Job in the World  :)

Bought this from the 2000ad Store, but yet to finish. Enjoyed it so far. Those Winter nights drawing in will be perfect chance to catch up  :)

Anyone who's read the book might appreciate this little Nerve Centre in-joke that I stumbled across in Prog 1029:



It's part of a spread showing a spaceship design by Chris Foss

Just finished reading this. Thanks for the recommendation Sheridan. I enjoyed it very much. I did think it wrapped up quite quickly and would happily have read more.
