New series '13' by Mike Carey
« on: 11 April, 2002, 10:28:54 PM »
Here's what Mike had to say about it on the DC Message Board...

13 is about human psychics, alien warrior maidens, vast machines at the Earth's core, and a theft and a murder that took place more or less at the time of the big bang. It's basically big, sprawling space opera stuff, with a sort of mystery element running alongside - the mystery concerning exactly what the stolen "artefact 13" actually is.

Cheers

-Daney

Funny cos the ad made it look like it was about a nutter.

Sounds vastly different from what the pics so far suggest. Hopefully the guy pictured won't be a copy of Dane McGowan (ooh, spooky) from The Invisibles. Not that I want to pick holes before I've even seen it.

I reckon the 13th artefact is the Dead Kennedys t-shirt. I do hope though, that 2000ad won't be accused of advertising the 'fake' DK that's 'reformed' at the moment.

If it's not Jello, don't swallow it!

Damn straight - there'll be no pale imitations of the DKs round here - I'll be sticking with my Biafra spoken-word albums rather than anything the Jello-less Kennedys bring out...

Good man! His new one's out this month, "The Big Ka-Boom". As opposed to Dredd Ka-Ka-Ka-Boom! Or was is Ka-Ba-Ba-Boom?

Cool - 'Become the Media' was awesome, and I'm seriously looking forward to the new one.

Remember to buy it direct from Alternative Tentacles though, and help pay off Jello's legal costs...
