TNTLTP End Confirmed

For the last few weeks, I've been working on the ending to There's No Time Like The Present. Although I've always had a clear idea of the overall story, I've usually written it a scene at a time. However, because of the way it ends, I decided to write the rest of it up until the very final panel which I finished doing yesterday. It means I can now confirm to you that part 13 will be the last issue of the series. I apologise if you're one of the people I told that part 12 was definitely where it ends. My excuse is that I totally underestimated how much plot I had left to go. Now all I have to do is draw the bastard.pbrainey

Best of 2009

The Forbidden Planet blog has been running a series of fun features where personalities from the British comics scene list their picks of 2009. No, I'm not one of the contributors (which I'm fine with, honestly) but I'm delighted to report that in today's entry Martin Spandex Eden includes Book of Lists as one of his three favourite books. Also, writer Rol Hirst recently placed Book of Lists as his second favourite comic of 2009 which is great as I have it on good authority he read a lot of them last year. Of course, as we all know, Book of Lists is ahead of its time and is so this decade.
