I just found out that my Uncle Kevin has died.
He was a pretty weird guy, in how he lived, thought, and looked. I couldn't honestly say that I knew him all that well or that I really understood him, but we got on in our way and I'm very sad that he's gone.
This is a picture that I drew of him way back when for an A level art project.
KEVIN RIORDAN 1938 - 2011

I've just returned from France, and what should greet me in dear old broken Blighty but this very flattering review of our humble comic by Richard at Forbidden Planet International.
He gets it! The Clash, Phil Spector, Martin Hannett, Scooby Doo, Wacky Races (Dan will love that), Grant Morrison, Deadline... and he says (amongst other things) "it’s 36 pages of out and out brilliance."
(We didn't bribe him, I promise.)
Hitsville UK will be in some of Forbidden Planet's shops soon, details to follow.
OR, you could always head to our shop and get yourself a copy.
