Comic Cuts - 29 November 2013

"Superb production and a treasured addition to the groaning bookshelf!"—Dave Gibbons.

Copies of Worlds of Adventure have shipped out and I'm getting some very nice comments on its quality. After a week slogging through artwork that needed cleaning up and continuing my quest to nail down accurate information for the next comic index, it has been great to hear from people and a simple "Many thanks for this great book" really lifts the spirits.

I'm working on the next two books concurrently. It's too close to Christmas to try and get another one out—and, frankly, nobody is likely to have any spare cash, I'd be wasting my energy. Working this way, I'm hoping to have two books finished reasonably early next year. After that ... well, we shall see.

I don't really have any other news so I guess I'll just quickly update you on my weight. I was hoping to lose a stone over the summer but I'm slightly off - at the last weigh-in I had lost 12 pounds, which means that I'm currently losing a pound a month. Due to my love of roast potatoes and Christmas pudding, I'm reasonably sure I'm not going to be losing those vital two pounds over Christmas.

What I find frustrating is that I'm not flagging in my exercise regime. I've been good, but the rewards have been tiny. I've done about 900 miles on that sodding exercise bike in order to lose about three pounds. That's a pound for every 300 miles—and I'm still going for walks, too! As Mel says, I may have to face up to the truth before long and actually go on a diet rather than try to exercise the weight off. If only food didn't taste so yummy!

I'm going to cut this short because I want to try and finish off a Mike Moorcock cover gallery for the weekend and there's about 100 covers to sort out. Next week we should have the recent and upcoming releases columns plus whatever else I can think of.
