This week we lost Russ Heath, Gary Friedrich and the first lady of comics, Marie Severin. I'll obviously pay tribute to each, but I think we could all do with some good news. Well, it's good news for me anyway...

But that's not all: In a move I still can't quite believe is happening, me and Sean have been asked to interview Don McGregor!!!
Don is, natch, the star guest, and we're going to be doing a live Q & A with him, covering as much of his career as we can fit in and talking about when we were kids, growing up reading the Dauntless one's amazing body of work.
