Finally Ian Edginton (how often do I misplace that 'G') - another example of how bad I am at predicting this list. While I know he's a relatively recent addition to things, he does seem to always have something on the go, so I'd assumed he'd have popped up earlier (where are you Ron Smith?).
One thing, I know Red Seas is seen as a cash in on 'Pirates of the Caribbean', but has it ever been explicitly stated? I always assumed it was, until when writing something for ECBT 2000ad, I realised that 'Red Seas: Under the Flag of King Death' (I've said it before and I'll say it again surely the single greatest title to a comic strip ever!) started in October 2002, some 8 months or so before Pirates of the Caribbean was released and in fact either before, or just as shooting started. So given that Red Seas must of had some led in time, surely the earliest it could have been conceived is a good year before PotC came out? (I'm making an assumption here, I might be off with my guess at led in time needed?)
Now I still assume its a cash in, but was there that much fuss about PotC that Tharg would have commission a cash-in 12 month before its release? Has this ever actually been said. It may well be in Thrillpower Overload and I've just forgotten?
