No, see, reprint the Thunderbirds parody as a quick cash-in on the flick and have big BY ALAN MOORE hype on the cover, if that doesn't shift a Space Girls reprint nothing will. It's sound economic sense. Or something.

I liked Carry On Barton despite never having seen a Carry On film, so apparently the humor must have worked in some fashion.  And it has a killer leek.

Plus I could identify one of the killers as being Sid from Hancock's Half Hour so Jim McCarthy did a good job, whereas in some of his other work (Fatted Keef, Grudge-Father) he just looked sloppy and slapdash.

It's a shame they couldn't do an Extreme Edition with the first series of Red Razors and the first series of Canon Fodder, backed with that Marconi story from Tales from Beyond Science and The Uncanny Dr Doctor.  Then you'd have all the decent Mark Millar 2000 AD work in one package and never need worry about reprinting any more.

Red Razors is getting the DC GN treatment, so unlikely to go the way of the EE.
Better set your phaser to stun.
