As I mentioned in my previous post, in the old days, a merger between two comic titles (actually usually a take-over by the better-selling or longer established one) was always heralded by the euphemism "Great News, Chums" or suchlike on the cover.
But that was then.
Nowadays, "Great News Chums" means exactly what it says - Great News.
Back in November last year, the editor of a certain comic emailled me a suggestion. A left field idea. A daydream, really. It would never work. I was sceptical. But I had a go. Happily, bizarrely, it seemed to work out- and in snowy February, we got the first tentative go-ahead. Since then, the snowball has continued rolling... and growing... and growing... and that's all I can say today.
But maybe tomorrow...
