No posts over the weekend due to trying to catch up on some sleep (Saturday) and scanning like it was going out of fashion (Sunday) for a future index update to Knockout. Spent today scanning, too, but for completely different reasons. There might even be one or two blog posts amongst the scans.
As I've no news worth mentioning, here's some news from elsewhere...
* Lew Stringer's Blimey! carries the good news that Terry Bave is still alive and well despite his death being reported in Crikey! issue 2. Lew quotes Steve Bright who posted a note to the Comics UK Forum reporting that "It sounds like Terry saw the funny side of it thankfully." These things happen: I wrote a piece for Jeff Hawke's Cosmos a couple of years ago which included a thank you to "the late" John Lawrence. Both John and I were quite surprised to hear that he'd died... I suspect the editor was mixing up John with Don Lawrence (who was, indeed, "late"). Editor Brian Clarke has posted a note saying that the news of Terry's demise had come from "a friend of ours who is a comics fan" who told him a few days before the issue went to print that Terry had recently died.
* Neil Gaiman is the subject of an interview 'The man who turns fantasy into reality' by Ian Burrell in The Indendent (22 October).
* Posy Simmonds is 'The invisible woman' according to Sabine Durrant in The Sunday Telegraph (21 October).
* Albert Uderzo is interviewed in 'The vital statistics of Asterix' by Mario Cacciottolo (BBC News, 18 October).
