The third series of Pirates of Pangaea recently drew to a close in The Phoenix – one of the title’s most popular strips – and Neill Cameron reports work is proceeding apace on the next chapter (“and indeed the next next one, ” he adds, “whilst even starting to think about the NEXT next next one…”)
Some fans have asked for a checklist of the Stories So Far, and which issues of The Phoenix they appeared in – and Neill has kindly obliged… and hinted that a collection might soon be on the way. Fingers crossed – it’s a superb strip.
