As I stated in another thead I loved Mike Higgs `Cloak` and his article on how the character came to be! The "Action" article was verey informative ass I knew little of the comic! There was a very good interview with someone-but I will have to read me No 13 again as I forget names too easily! Get back to you on this! Alan.

RighT! Issue 13! (1) Kevin O' Neill interview! Superb early on as Kevin gave great insight to what a awfully retrogressive company I. P.C were! And people though Thomsons under R.D Lowe were `Archaic` Rest of Kev's interview where he mentions `Nemesis` and other 2000AD stuff, not so much to my taste-but certainly engrossing details for 2000AD fans!

(2) `The Cloak and I` Mike Higgs! FANTASTIC!! cheers So much to my taste! I had never read any comments by Mike before (or knew what he looked like!) Definatly a `Crikey!` winner!

(3) Alex Wiggins "Britains Got Talent" Gosh! did I get a duff print? It was that `shading` around the edges! My eyesight not too great and I can't make all of it out! From what I could glean Alex makes great points about `lack of credibility` of UK `heroes` as regarded in the media!

(4) Comic Life of Dr Who. Very good! I used to have the weekly/monthly for about 7 years! Funny! but the strips I disliked, I realised were written by an Alan moore! I wrote to the mag stating I didn't care for that much `sadism` One of the staff who I met at a London comic fair told me Mr Moore's `works` garnered fans and complaints about 40-60 to the latter!

(5) `The Cloak` strip! cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers The only thing to top this would be a new `I. Spy` strip!

(6) Tank Girl! can't really comment! I read about 20 lines and gave up! Sorry!

(7) Nutty Notions! Tony! you should have perused me `Sparky-file` a bit more! "Invisible Dick" was drawn by Tony Speer! It ran from Feb to June 1967 then July 1968 to August 1974! The second run the longest continoius adventure strip in Sparky! The 1975-77 stuff were re-prints!

(Cool Pulp Rules OK! As someone who knew very little about `Action` I found this article most informative and written in a very engrossing style!

(9) Rise and Fall of Marvel UK I got to where the name Alan Moore started cropping up and that was that! Sorry!

That's about all! My most desired read in a future Crikey would be an interview with Peter Clark, But wether he is still around I don't know! (He wrote the `I. Spy` strip in Sparky to 1972!

The new Cloak strip seems to provoked more comment than anything we've done in recent issues, and all of it positive (so far)...

Deservedly Tony! A Crikey coup indeed! I hope Mike might be up for more!

...sorry about the 'muddy' Wiggan page - entirely my fault. It looked nice in colour but obviously didn't work in B&W. It won't happen again until it happens again...

Just to point out: you can find more of the dubious wit and alleged wisdom of Alex Wiggan in the features section...

It was just the edges of the article! I showed it to a friend to check-as my eyesight is a bit weak! He said he could read it-but it was difficult! Perhaps a slightly lighter tone would work better!

The reason some of this issue was a little dark is because it was originally in colour and when we had to scale back, it had to be converted. It shouldn't happen again.

I've only had a quick flick -- I have an odd habit with magazines I buy regularly of not reading an issue until I have the following one. A bit odd of me...

Thing that stands from a flick ais the 'Strip' section. Happy to see The Cloak, but with the reduced pagination, I rather see articles than strips.

The strip section has generally gone down rather well-nbut while we intend to keep it, it won't be expanding and may not always have as many pages. Hatch and 4D Jones are likely to remain regulars and 14 has a rather nice centre pages strip lined up which I think might be considered an 'article' in itself...

My wife has just texted me to tell me that Crikey #13 has arrived in the post, and I'm stuck in work....

I'm really looking forwards to reading this one after hearing good things about it. I'll post again with my reactions when I've read it

Why was John M. Burns' art work of Costra from the 'Countdown' strip on the cover when nothing about it was featured within? From the cover alone, I expected an article...

one error, Alan Davies should have been Alan Davis on the cover of the Age of Chaos Doctor Who graphic novel, mind you its spelt wrong on the cover.
but a great issue, only just got a copy at the Doctor Who Launch party in London.

Excellent Kevin O'neil interview, and much much more, thanks.

It's well overdue, but my reaction to Crikey! #13 was totally positive! Loved the whole issue, especially the Kev O'Neill interview.

I'm really enjoying Crikey! #14 so far. I'm snatching quick reads of it in between work, writing, eating and sleeping (the usual!). I love the Bryan Talbot cover, and the 3 page 'history' he created. The other stuff is great too!

Don't worry about the reduction in pages/colour - the stuff you are including is that good I haven't even thought about it!

Glad we're doing something right, Andrew! Bryan's piece was rather good, wasn't it? Very Happy
