Vworp 2 & Weetabix

We’re delighted to be able to reveal a few details for the upcoming Vworp Vworp! 2 fanzine, the sequel to the amazing Vworp Vworp! ‘zine released back in 2009.

As you can see, this stunning image evokes memories of 1980s Doctor Who and the finished magazine will feature a cast of many, including Tom Baker, Colin Baker, Dave Gibbons, Paul Cornell, Paul Neary, Dez Skinn, Lee Sullivan and many others as the magazine focuses on various elements of Doctor Who Magazine and its legendary strip.

Regular Kasterborous readers may recall that Vworp Vworp! editor Gareth Kavangh shared with us a few snippets in a recent podKast, including the appearance of legendary Dalek Killer Abslom Daak in the new Vworp Vworp!. If that isn’t worth purchasing the magazine upon release, I don’t know what is!

However, we’re still a few months from publication at present, and Gareth Kavanagh and his Vworp Vworp! colleague Colin Brockhurst require a little help. If you recall, the original magazine had some marvellous Doctor Who transfers on the cover, evoking the original first issue of Doctor Who Weekly.

Well it seems that this time around, and in a completely unrelated sense, the magazine are planning to feature a gift with a connection to the Doctor Who games Weetabix gave away in the late 1970s, and in particular Gareth and Colin are looking for a copy of the detailed instructions found printed on the inside of the packets.

If you can help (perhaps a detailed photo or scan of the item), drop me a line at christian@kasterborous.com and we’ll make sure Colin and Gareth have everything they need to make Vworp Vworp! #2 as great as the first!
