The new year is weeks old already and my plans for world dominati-err... publishing comics have been delayed by a horrific cold. I'm much better now, thanks for asking.
2009 sounds so much more futuristic than the rest of this decade don't you think? A child born today would still be at junior school when the replicants come back from the offworld colonies in Blade Runner.
Anyway there are about 9 comic events on in the next 2 months, I'm definitely going to Hi-Ex and hopefully a few more besides. I'll keep you informed, and belated Happy New Year!
