The issue features an EXCLUSIVE interview with comic writing god ALAN MOORE! Discussing the apocalyptic themes through most of his work, the writer turns dark prophet as he reveals why DR and Quinch's nuclear fetish was a bad idea, why George Bush nis a bad idea, and even makes his own end-of-the-world prediction!

Don't miss the fantastic full-colour cover by 2000AD favourite BOO COOK and artwork by 2000AD legend FRAZER IRVING! And there's also an interview with JOHN WAGNER and ALAN GRANT about The Last American, and artist MELANIE GEBBIE talks about her work on the film of When the Wind Blows.

Plus there are the usual comic strips, news articles, in-depth features and funnies.

At a special convention price of ?3.99 (normal price ?4.99), you can't afford to miss it! The website at www.endisnigh.co.uk will soon be updated with sneak previews of this issue's fantastic content!

Note to self: THE END IS NIGH - write it ... before it's too late! :-)

As I said to you before Mike, that's a damn fine cover!

Also, having had a chat with Mike about his Alan Moore interview, I'm really keen to read it. Buy it, creeps!

How come no one ever mentions when I'm doing a signing?

"MELANIE GEBBIE"

Surely that's a typo? It should be Melinda Gebbie, no?

"having had a chat with Mike about his Alan Moore interview, I'm really keen to read it."

Let's hope the Scenic Ramble of Reminiscence Round Northampton has made it to the final cut then.

I don't think we could ever have enough tales about Black Shuck and the Guy Fawkes conspirators.  If nothing else, the y help distract from the fact that Northampton spawned Jo Whiley.

Aww...it's sweet that you'd chose to advertise your greatly aged nature. Well done on managing to survive for this long!
