This is just a quick blog to wish everyone a Happy Christimas and all the best for 2012. Where comics are going I just don't know - probably the way of music. I was in a comic shop in Belfast the other day and I didn't see a comic tht I would actually buy. I used to get 2000 AD regularly but I haven't seen a copy in well over a year anywhere. Is it still being published? I do recall seeing an issue about a year and a half ago and it wasn't all that good so maybe it's stopped. Future doesn't look too bright but we can still hope. And I hope that each and every one of you have a great Christmas and have all your Christmas shopping done. I'm just about finished - I've all the presents bought, the tree decorated and all the Christmas bills paid. And I've just realised that I'm sounding pretty boring. Not like a comic writer should - I should be unruly, drunk and witty I suppose. Just spoken to Adrian and he's busily wrapping presents - I suppose when you get to a certain age. We're to meet up at the end of January and think about 1949 and what we can do with the strip as the comics world out there looks so bleak. I'm wittering on so I'll go and finish off a couple of things. Will talk again in the New Year. Happy Christmas!
