Welcome to my world of mystery and shadows where the unusual is usual…where the unexpected is expected. MOONCHILD. Like her grandmother before her, Rosemary Black has discovered that she has the power to move things with her mind. A crescent shape on her forehead marks Rosemary as the Moonchild. While her jealous mother forbids her to use her new found abilities, the actions of a school bully push Ms Black closer and closer towards temptation and revenge. THE FOUR FACES OF EVE. Eve Marshall develops amnesia after an accident. Unable to remember anything about her past and haunted by nightmares involving the tragic deaths of three other girls, Eve sets out to discover the chilling truth of who…or what she really is. These eerie encounters are brought to you by Pat Mills,  John Armstrong, Malcolm Shaw,  Brian Delaney and, of course, your friend, Misty!

The Mighty One: My Life in the Nerve Centre by Steve MacManus
1973, a 20-year-old Steve MacManus joined Fleetway Publications as a sub-editor on one of the UK’s top adventure titles, Valiant. Within six years, he would rise to become editor of the company’s most celebrated weekly, 2000 AD, shepherding it through its ‘Golden Age’ as he commissioned hit series such as The Ballad of Halo Jones, Sláine, Bad Company, Rogue Trooper, Nemesis the Warlock and more. For many he remains the definitive editor of the multi-award-winning SF anthology. Now, in this warm and witty memoir, MacManus lifts the lid on the fiercely creative environment that was British comics in the 1970s and ‘80s. With keen insight, he reveals how against all odds 2000 AD became a global phenomenon.

the Steve McManus book is also available in hardback (limited edition of 200 copies), it has the same ISBN as the paperback and was available from the 2000ad shop but is now sold out. My copy arrived today. Woo -hoo!
