TPO: the final cover revealed!

TPO is being printed in Malta as you read this - grud, they may have even finished printing it by now - and should be available to buy from all good thrill merchants this month [that's June 2007, for anyone reading this blog in the future - hello, Future People!]. Seems like a long, long time since Alan Barnes asked me toward the end of 2001 whether I'd be interested in writing a few articles about the history of 2000 AD.

Fast forward to August 2006 and I submitted the mnauscript for the TPO book: 120,000 words of thrills, spills, gossip and backstage shenanigans. Another jump forward in time and you reach May 2007, as I laboured for 30 hours to index the proof pages. And now here we are in June 2007, with the big book about to burst forth on the world. Here's the blurb about it from the 2000 AD website:
THRILL-POWER OVERLOAD
By David Bishop
Thirty Years of Thrill-Power!
For over three decades one British comic has defined a generation: 2000 AD. From humble and rocky beginings to its current position as the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, Thrill-Power Overload charts the incredible history of this ground-breaking weekly. With exclusive interviews, hundreds of illustrations and rarely-seen artwork, former 2000 AD editor David Bishop guides the reader through three decades of action, adventure, excitement and the occasional editorial nightmare! Told by the people who were there, this is the definitive history of the comic that launched a thousand talents.
Large-format hardback
256 pages
£34.99
Includes bonus comic strip and comprehensive index

Analysis destroys the appearance upon which this derogatory judgment is based. http://storyah44.info/biochemia.html. All other processes in the system, even those in the foreconscious, are devoid of any psychic quality, and are therefore not objects of consciousness inasmuch as they do not furnish http://startso11.info/mu+psychic-doom+1.0.html pleasure or pain for perception..

He was so dejected at the http://storyah44.info/poPolsce.pl.html moment she had leaped that he did not realize what she had done, and two minutes later he was so elated that, shame on him! he did not care.. And as Titbottom opened the door, I heard the low words: And Preciosa? Titbottom paused. http://startso11.info/www.lollll.pl.html.

The Colonel bit his lip. http://startso11.info/www.pksstarogardgd.pl.html.

Then you'll fight him tooth and nail? she said eagerly; you'll show him up? You'll tell the whole story your own way? You'll give him fits?--and you'll make him pay? Sure? she went on, breathlessly. http://startso11.info/net.plwww.o.html. Don't be http://startso11.info/NASTAPOL.html noisy--it's Sunday, you know--and don't get to playing anything that'll dirty up your good clothes.. And if a Universalist Sunday-School Convention collects five hundred http://startso11.info/widoczny+prom+kosmiczny.html delegates, the next Congregationalist Sabbath-School Conference must be as large, lest 'they'--whoever they may be--should think 'we'--whoever we may be--are going down..
