Announcing the news on Strikerworld, Pete says his team only plan to print to order, with only a few surplus copies, with delivery planned for later this month, so be sure to order your copy early as there were many disappointed fans who missed out on Volume Two.
“This book contains the last four years of hand-drawn Striker adventures before the switch to 3D computer-generated production at the start of 1999,” he notes, “And you can see a three-week experiment with the new style towards the end of the book.”
This era also marked a transition in the tone of the Striker stories from drama to comedy drama, inspired by the larger-than-life character traits of manager Eric and his trophy wife Vanessa, who made their Striker debuts at the end of Volume Two.
The price for Volume Three, which includes an introduction by Pete, remains at £25 including delivery for an unsigned book, or £30 including delivery for a signed copy. Overseas buyers should email Lucinda at firstname.lastname@example.org for prices.
A limited reprint of Volume Two is also being considered, if there is sufficient demand; email email@example.com if you would like to go on the waiting list).
