Former 2000AD and Judge Dredd: The Megazine editor, author and comics writer David Bishop reports that his massive book about the history of 2000AD, Thrill-Power Overload, will be released in paperback next year.
“Steady reorders mean Rebellion is down to its last handful of hardback copies” David reveals on his blog (a darn useful read, especialy if you’re an aspring writer btw). ” Once those first editions go, the book will be switched to paperback. The new edition is due out in February 2009, with a cover price of £25. I’ve already been through the text correcting minor errors that crept into the first printing. No idea if the new edition will also get a new cover – probably not. But it’s a joy to know the book is staying in print.”
