SLEIGHBELLS IN THE SKY...
For many years, visitors to various 2000 A.D. fan sites (and even
the official one) researching the works of writer GORDON RENNIE,
would have seen the name of one story attributed to him that wasn't his.
Upon discovering this, I decided to own up and take the blame, thereby
removing the blot on his otherwise sterling reputation.
Yes, dear reader, 'twas I - KID ROBSON - who penned this particular
episode of THARG'S FUTURE SHOCKS, entitled SLEIGHBELLS IN
THE SKY. Frankly, I thought the lettering was a bit too big, the colouring
too dark, and some slight editorial revision detracted from the consistency
of the meter, but otherwise it was a nice-enough little Christmas filler.
The cover doubled as the 2000 A.D. Christmas card that year,
sent from the office of THARG THE MIGHTY to all contributors. I
still have mine tucked away, in case it ever becomes valuable. Watch
out for me on the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in about 30 years.
