One of the best things about turning the original Thrill-Power Overload articles into a book was the chance to revise and expand the text. IIRC The First Thirty Years hardback added 40,000 words. The 2017 edition added another big chunk to that.

Only 6 years until TPO50?

304 pages, apparently, which is pretty chunky. I don’t envy whoever had to put that together. Compiling the best of the master’s stories must have been insanely tricky.

It's America, reprinted 2.5 times…

America is only 62 pages, it fits into that nearly 5 times!

There's a reason why the second series of Red Razors was rejected by the Megazine.

Coming back to this data the list of Progs where we have 0% of the stories collected is quite interesting:

144, 537, 539, 542-543, 598, 718, 722, 745, 749, 766-803, 808-809, 817-818, 823, 825-827, 867, 872-888, 897-900, 924-939, 949, 1013, 1062-1065, 1067-1069, 1076, 1229-1230, 1249, 1288, 1329-330, 1334-1335, 1357-1361, 1945, 1950-1960, 1993-1995, 2001-2022, 2061-2072, 2079-2099, 2106-2116, 2123-2138
, 2150+

Other than issue 144 we've got at least one story from every prog until the 537! Lots of 0% Progs in the 750-950 range. Then another run from 1362-1944 where we've got at least one story from every Prog. It'll be interesting to see if there are any progs left in this list at the end of the run.

Haven't the Nikolai Dante strips in 1067-1069 have been collected?

There's more than enough material for a Middenface McNulty book. [Would love to see Wan Man a' his Dug reprinted finally, it's been 30 years!]

And Michael Coulthard is, if memory serves, actually Shaky Kane.

Oh, I've written more than my fair share of stinkers! But both of those were nearly 25 years ago, so I'd like to believe I *might* have improved a little since then...

Wish I'd gotten to write my Fiends on a U-boat tale but Ian E & friends are doing wonderful work with the legacy of GFD & Carlos.

I don't own Armitage, so am not in a rush to write a novel featuring the character. But having co-created Armitage, it would be fun to write a strip for him. Plus it would be nice to show I can write comics, having improved my skills writing nearly 50 issues of The Phantom for Egmont Scandinavia!

Would love to have a crack at writing an Armitage strip one day!

The late 1990s, I believe.

Blakes 7 would be a bit out of my comfort Zone tbh, I would imagine two sets of rights would have to be navigated, those that own the strips and those that own the IP.
I have another four collections agreed with Rebellion, more info on those later in the year!

At last, news about The Worst of Bish=OP collection is emerging!
The Soul Sisters!
Dead Man Walking!
Together at last in one mighty volume!
I expected the press release back on the first of April, to be honest...
