The Comic Strip Companion in Hardback
Featuring a cover by original comic strip artist Bill Mevin, Scoones’ book takes you through 1964 to 1979 of the comic strip’s run and features comments from some of the original artists and writers. It also features notes on production context and things like continuity and what caused the adventures to come into being.
If you’ve already ordered the paperback, fret not: there is an option to upgrade to the hardback if you ordered it directly from the Telos website. In any event, it’s not like you get extra content for picking one version over another – both versions clock in at a hefty 608 pages (with 8 of those being in full colour to show off some of the comic strip covers of the period).
The book is due to be published at the end of September, and the paperback version is available for £16.99 from Amazon. The hardback is £30 plus p&p and can be ordered from the Telos website.
