It was #11, Shakara.

I'd be interested to know if this was the only issue not inked by BB. I'd assumed Terry Austin inked all of it, but from what's been said here about schedule problems towards the end, maybe he was brought in on #11 to help Bolland's workload.

Yep. I was right. The issues not inked by Austin were done by Bruce D Patterson.

I'll put me hood down now. :)

IIRC Camelot 3000 was supposed to be DC's firstcomic that did not subscibe to the then Comic Code Authority.  This ment that it was able to takle a more "adult" audience and aim that bit higher.

In some ways I think DC regard it as a mile stone in the history of comics.

Generally its okay, I do have it in my collection but havn't read it for yonks because I feel it has not aged too well compared to other stuff  (cracking yyarn though)

Aye, its a brilliant story, and yeh, there are some really aged peices to it, what with the massive shoulder-pads everyone seems to wear in the future (no offence to Dreddy)
Some of the dialogue is pretty amazing, though

Sh-sh-sh-shag carpeting

Yes, someone go buy it cos it's good.
Or get the fat-ass graphic novel from somewhere, maybe Amazon. If ye already own it, GO RE-READ it! I dunno why I'm preaching so much, I'm just bored

I've read this! I've read this! My uncle sent it from Canada ages ago, and I loved it. It was sooooo good!

Thanks for reminding me of it, I'm gonna go bid for it! I need to read it again!

Its one of my favourite 'collected' books. Ive read it so many times i cant tell you.  Mainly for the art, though. Which, dispite what others have said, is fantastic!

I thought Camelot 3000 was really dull.

I'm probably a bit biased, as it was one of my first 'grown up' comics...
I'll have to re-read, but I was pretty fond of it!!

Admittedly it was dull at points, but it is good though...

..people that own it should re-read it

I've been after this for years... and I'm gonna bid on your ebay auction. Never read it but read lots about it.

Any chance you could end the auction early and I'll just buy it from you?

How much do you want for the book?
