What about the derelict's crew? [16]


Review: "(1979) also saw the release of a super underground graphic novel for the film. And that's understandable, because the reason it's super underground is because it was written by an 11-year-old that couldn't see the movie.

The result is all kinds of incredible."

Peter Hall -

This Wednesday edition is coming a day late - sorry readers.

The reason? The last two days have been very exciting. Articles, blog posts and tweets have been popping up all over the web since yesterday, raving about this site and publicising its predecessor Star Wars age 9.

I'm a bit stunned to say the least. When I checked my traffic stats yesterday - Tuesday 31st February - it seemed to show 3.5 THOUSAND unique visits on this site alone. I discovered that a writer for 2000ad comic called Arthur Wyatt had posted on Metafilter about Aa11 - from there on, it seemed to spread everywhere. I suspect that our Iain Snell's post on the 2000ad forums had been picked up on by Arthur who wrote a few lines and started the chain reaction. By midnight it was around the 5k mark. Quite a change from the usual 30!

My wife Gabby and I are stunned by the interest, she even cried when she read one article about the comics. We joked about interviews, and this evening I was emailed by a cinema journalist and invited to give one! Well, we'll see what happens. I shouldn't get too excited... I'll keep you informed.

You know, I'm such a hopeless and lazy self-publicist. I only just, this evening, wrote a bio for myself and put it on this site. No wonder I've never been successful!
