As promised, here’s a sneak peek at the cover to the forthcoming sequel to The Atomic Society of Justice, titled Evil Hollywood Over Subterrania....
In addition to this cover treat we’re happy to announce that during a recent visit to Ice Station Zebra (on the 23rd of February) Agent Johnny announced he has begun working on the cover(s) for his new collections, one concentrating on his ’00′s output and the other on his 80′s output (plus anything we happen to have missed out in the meantime as we’re both finding new art all the time!). They’re shaping up just great, and since the pencils were premiered he’s informed me over the phone that he’s “cracking on” with the inks.
Sounds: Blows Against The Empire by Paul Kantner, Grace Slick et al: Bear’s Choice (side one) by Grateful Dead and Psycho, original motion picture soundtrack (side one) by Bernard Herrmann.

Agent Miller visited 'Section, 2', Glasgore on Tuesday and a day was spent conversing in the Attic regarding upcoming projects. Doctoring of Secret Agent X4 for publication was discussed and resolved, and the Crimesmasher amendments approved. This means the interiors for The Collected John G. Miller, 2000-2011 are now complete.
In addition, notes for Chapter 4 of Evil Hollywood Over Subterrania provisionally titled BATTLECAT versus Subterrania were begun, the sheer volume of ideas meaning this may take a while to shape into a coherent storyline. However, a few main plot threads were established.
Sounds: Two from the Vault by Grateful Dead, BBC Sessions '68-'69 by The Pink Floyd, Record Store Bonus Disc (feat. various artists) from Wooden Shjips, Blows Against The Empire by Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, et al. Caravan (track) and Rox (track) by The Aliens and Darkwave Driver/Big Drill Car (track) by The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Another leisurely Happy New Year's swill at Ice Station Zebra with Agent Johnny yesterday. A recent letter contained the final 6 (of the 8 ) pages of Zone Of Destruction, 'fer me to draw', and page 1 of John Stark: Agent of S.M.E.R.S.H. is about 80% complete, some inking aside, with the entire tale roughed out over the Christmas period.
Too Many Criminal Idiots was discussed and, with the copies sent now registered 'officially missing', we agreed it falls to myself to make a few 'minor tweaks' for approval prior to publication.
Sounds: A Saucerful of Secrets by Pink Floyd, Soundtrack from the film 'More' by The Pink Floyd, Zabriskie Point: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (various artists) and The Best of The Pink Floyd.
Visions: Batman Original TV series and D.C Showcase Presents: Doom Patrol, Vol. 1
