THRILL-POWER OVERLOAD paperback in 2009

I'm overjoyed to announce that THRILL-POWER OVERLOAD will be reprinted in a new paperback edition early next year. My monumental history of iconic British comic 2000 AD was first published as a hardcover last summer to glowing reviews, the culmination of exhaustive research, more than a hundred exclusive interviews and years of writing. The £35 cover price meant TPO was never going to be a bestseller, but the mighty tome is a something of an evergreen.

Steady reorders mean Rebellion is down to its last handful of hardback copies. Once those first editions go, the book will be switched to paperback. The new edition is due out in February 2009, with a cover price of £25. I've already been through the text correcting minor errors that crept into the first printing. No idea if the new edition will also get a new cover - probably not. But it's a joy to know the book is staying in print.
