Another bunch of strips from Grant Morrison’s Captain Clyde, Govan Press 1980. Parts 7 – 12, the origin of Captain Clyde. (Note the logo change partway through.)
Jocks Magazine was launched in 1986 as a companion of sorts to Record Mirror with a focus on the DJ market. It is still running to this day, although it changed it’s name in 1991 to DJ Magazine. Below are a number of pages from the May 1988 issue, in particular the charts from that month.
Starship Titanic is an adventure game developed by Douglas Adams’ Digital Village organisation in 1998/1998.
For some time it was lost to old system specifications and DOS boxes and forgotten incantations like SB=220, but it seems to be playable again nowadays. Anyway, as part of the original release there was an “in flight” magazine written by long term friends / collaborators of Douglas Michael Bywater & Neil Richards. I guess it might have been planned to have held some hints for the game, but as it is it’s a weird artefact and I’m not even sure it’s all that relevant to the game. The accompanying novel ended up speed written by Terry Jones, supposedly in the nude.
I’ve noticed some folk are trying to sell their copies for a few quid which seems a bit rich for a 16 page not even a Novella. So, anyway, please find below.
(I can’t believe that website is still there, but on deeper digging I’m not entirely surprised…)
Have probably posted this before, but hey, it’s 8/08. And probably the same in US time. 808 State with Robert Owens on Gimme Shelter, a well intentioned but not really all that successful charity thing.
Had posted these to twitter a while ago, but in the interest of having them somewhere that isn’t the worst thing ever I present the first 6 parts of Grant Morrison’s Captain Clyde, covering the first arc as such. Originally serialised in the Govan Press weekly newspaper from November 1979, this ran for about 2 1/2 years (although not necessarily every week).
