Mean Machine collection
Dave Gibbons interview
New Movies round-up
Richmond Clements: A nice conclusion to the Gibbons interview, but what’s this ‘Watchmen’ book he mentioned? I’ve never heard him speak of it before. Must pick a copy up to see what the fuss is about...
I would have liked to see a short chat with Mr Fraser about Lily, but maybe that’s coming..?
I remember being crushingly disappointed with the Mean Machine strip ‘Travels’ when it first arrived. It had been heavily trailed and hyped in the prog before hand, but when it arrived it was a very brief, one note joke with some admittedly good art. Would reading it all in one make it better? No, I’m afraid it didn’t. It’s a pretty pointless tale all told. The two back-up stories fair slightly better, although I have absolutely no memory of either (or maybe because of that). The Hicklenton illustrated one is as barmy as you’d like, but the best was final, Rennie scripted one, which featured some splendid art.
