It's now two months since this has been updated. Have they announced that it has been cancelled or is it just on hiatus?

So that's why we've been waiting so long. They were setting up the camera so we could see Molch-R's shiney circle laser light eyes!

Good to have it back. Also reminds me that Molch-R is also clearly Dan Cornwell's mustache model...

These are now popping up in my Spotify  - which is great.

Really interesting one about Games adaption of comics and vice versa.

For those just about to go into isolation, I can recommend the fantastic back catalogue of these. I don't think I have ever been disappointed on listening.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Spotify for Mega-City Book Club, Space Spinner 2000 and the Thrillcast?  Who needs to go out?

I'd never heard of Blueberry before. Suddenly seeing where Quitely's Missionary Man came from! I knew Moebius was an influence but it's very evident from some of the album covers.

I've not had the chance to listen to this yet, is Blueberry just mentioned in terms of Colin's time working on the series, rather than some much wanted news that its getting an English translation?

I've moaned so many times here about not having Blueberry available in the English language and yes I'm too old dumb and lazy to learn French so I can read it as intented - look if I can't even get around to listening to this podcast...

Yes I'm sorry to say nothing is mentioned about an english language edition. What a shame.

Sure is. I have a bunch of the Moebius stuff from collections Epic put out back in the day. But I'm not aware of any of Colin's stuff ever having been translated and the Moebius stuff is long over due a reprint.

I did ask Cinebook about this a few years ago and the chap rolled his eyes and just said 'If I could I would!'
