Clint should be out by then end of the month. There has been a delay in some of the strips. Perhaps Mr Millar should start consuming polystyrene cups in an effort to learn how to get a title out on time?

2000AD. Best comic in the history of all time, creation and everything else. 1980s 2000AD - perfection! And it's pretty great in 2011.

Sparky include the strip set in the editorial office of the comic, and included characters like Throgmorton, the office junior, and the office cat. It also had Puss And Boots, about the eternally feuding cat and dog. There were some great surreal plots and images in that-as well as rather a lot of violence!

Whizzer and Chips included the strip Shiner, about a boy who regularly gets into fights, both giving and receiving black eyes! That strip wouldn't be allowed today, that's for sure! It also had Jimmy Jekyll, about the wimpy boy, who turns himself into a scary, tough character with a sip of his magic potion.

Roy of the Rovers: the title character was a big, super-muscular footballer (a Scot, I believe) with blond, and very long hair (it was the 70s). I also vaguely recall a strip about a man with a robotic arm.

Buster included the strip Faceache, about a boy who can contort his face, and body, into really grotesque, demonic, shapes. 'Scrunging' this process was called.

The Beezer included the brilliant Numskulls, showing the interior layout of a man's head as a working organisation, with the Brain Department the senior management on the top floor, then the eye, ear, and nose departments as subordinate administrative sections, often coming into conflict, and the mouth department, with manual workers shovelling food down the man's throat. A lot of clever digs at inter-departmental relations, and intra-organisation and class conflict in that one!

The Beezer also included Blubba, who was a pink alien, naturally shaped as a blob with eyes and a mouth, but able to take any shape he chose, who was kicked off a flying saucer onto planet Earth, and ended up lodging with some Earth family, and helping them, and others, with his shape-changing powers.
