Thanks, Fungus. Yes, the podcast will be 3 at the end of May!

And coming up in the next few weeks are The Thirteenth Floor, Rok of the Reds, and some more Nemesis.

Will the upcoming Nemesis be before or after FCBD?

After. Should be episode 94 on Sunday 26th May.

For avoidance of doubt - is that our one or another before mine?

That’s you, Sheridan. No other Nemesis on the docket at the moment.

For some reason I thought you had a longer lead time between recordings and release dates?  I guess those three years have polished your editing skillz :-)

Yes, I have got my turnaround time down and don't have a backlog of episodes at the moment.

Just so everyone knows what we are talking about, episode 94 should be Nemesis the Warlock book 1 (and beyond) with Sheridan, and we are planning to record it at FCBD in London next week.

‪Dare you press the button for the Thirteenth Floor? Listen in to my chat with Peter Adamson from Where Eagles Dare as we discuss some classic British horror comics from Wagner, Grant and Ortiz.

And Harry Ferguson’s torment continues in Peter’s second Jose Ortiz grail page. Check out this wonderful volume from the Treasury of British Comics.

Book club turns football club as Tony Esmond from the Awesome Comics podcast brings along Rok of the Reds by Wagner, Grant, Cornwell, Bulmer & Campbell.

"The talented podcaster has played a blinder of a pass there!"

I bought the digital version of this after listening and it didn't disappoint. Doomlord crossed with 2000ad and Roy Of The Rovers is a great description.

I think Bob The Galactic Bum was the last time John Wagner had written with Alan Grant before this.

Cheers, WhizzBang. I knew one of our listeners would be able to fill me in on their last collaboration.
