The Phoenix Rises

I’m overjoyed to see a new comic, The Phoenix, arise with promises of great new stories and wonderful artwork and cause a new generation of children to tremble with excitement.

My parents were tolerant of my comics habit, I suppose because they could see me reading ‘proper’ books as well. I never got over it. I’m still a devotee. And I’m overjoyed to see a new comic, The Phoenix, arise with promises of great new stories and wonderful artwork and cause a new generation of children to tremble with excitement. One of the things I’ve enjoyed most as a writer was creating the story of JOHN BLAKE for the much mourned DFC. I hope John Blake is going to be a film in the not too distant future, but I also hope I’ll have the time and the energy to make a small contribution to the Phoenix, in due course. Comics, as a narrative form, have hardly begun to scratch the surface of what they can do. It’ll be thrilling to watch the Phoenix take to the skies and carry the particular kind of delight I felt as a boy to everyone who reads it.
