    Yes, kiddies, this approaching week is a smorgasborg of Tony Lee goodness, and I felt it only fair that you all know and of course spend your hard earned pennies on me, all me! Mu ha ha ha ha!!!!

    Wednesday is the main day - in the US, the first part of my 6 part Doctor Who 45th Anniversary ten Doctors extravaganza 'Doctor Who: The Forgotten' hits the stores from IDW, with art of course by the incredible Pia 'Eisner Winner' Guerra - and let's be honest here, this is probably the closest I'll ever get to an Eisner, so let's pimp that for all it's worth - and it's her first ongoing gig since Y The Last Man so of course I'm totally twitching and nervously worried and all that. Reviewers and fans seem to like it though, so fingers crossed.

    (I know this is one of those comics that 'isn't available in the UK' due to Panini / IDW licensing things, but I also know that many UK comic shops will have it on the Thursday, including Orbital in London...)

    For those of you who of course need your fix of Tony goodness and live outside the US, in particular the UK? Fear not! For you too shall have a dose of Tony Lee goodness in the form of the extra-sized ten-page first issue of Stalag #666, my Sci Fi 'Great Escape' story with Jon Davis-Hunt, appearing in Wednesday's 2000ad prog 1600! That's right, my first ever 2000ad work, and it'll be there for you to read for the next fifteen weeks!

    (I've heard a rumour that the Megazine (that comes out Tuesday this week) may in fact be my first 2000ad work though, with a Tales of the Black Museum one shot - but this isn't confirmed...)

    And that's not all - because on Friday there's a double helping of Tony Lee and Dan Boultwood goodness - of course we have the weekly serialized, never-seen-before pages of The Gloom at www.chemsetcomics.com, but our 16 part serial, The Prince Of Baghdad will start in Random House / David Fickline Books weekly children's comic The DFC...

    So rejoice, my bretheren! No matter where you go this week, enjoy my creative brainspurts! For you! From me!

    Liked the first episode of Stalag 666, Tony. I'm now intrigued to see what you do with The Great Escape in Space.

    But you aren't in this months Meg, it's another Al Ewing Tale from the Black Museum this month.

    Hell yes! I'm looking forward to them all.

    A word of warning to those of you Stateside (I'm in Canada). You'll have to wait a few extra weeks for 2000ad #1600. I think next week we get prog #1596. Also, if you store does not already stock it, you are fucked. Diamond need a three week lead time on getting issues in.

    If you are still after the story, you should go to http://www.clickwheel.net/,which has every 2000ad prog up a week after release. Do not download 2000ad from a torrent site. Tharg will know, and he has punishments even worse than arse eels

    Well done for all the great gigs Tony!

    I must have been very bad in a previous life to deserve a week of Tony Lee.

    I sit here waiting for you to buy me candy and take me to the zoo.

    It will happen, oh yes - it will happen....

    I must have been very bad in a previous life to deserve a week of Tony Lee.


    What you call 'bad'... I call 'incredibly lucky young thing'...

    Yeah Al contacted me to let me know. I'm in the run of stories so I'll be in the Meg with it sometime in the next couple of months, and then I think my Citi Def story (with Jack Lawrence) starts in December.
