Best news of the day, from an interview with the great Brendan McCarthy:
It might be a good idea for IDW to plan the release [of a Zaucer of Zilk collection] for around the time of a forthcoming 220 pages Best of Milligan & McCarthy collection, which is due out September 2013. Expect a big announcement on that from a major comics company soon. It will include pretty much all the classic ’80s material from Peter Milligan and myself: Paradax!, Rogan Gosh, Skin, Freakwave, etc., plus some early, archival snippets from The Electrick Hoax and Summer of Love. As most of our stuff has been out of print for the last 20 years, it will be a good chance to read and collect some of the best historical strips from the ’80s U.K. comic explosion.
As someone who grew up on Rogan Gosh and Skin, as well as half-forgotten chapters of Summer of Love (and Sooner or Later, which probably belongs to 2000AD and likely won’t be collected in this book, sadly enough), this is amazingly good news. For everyone else: Trust me, people. This is great, great news. Milligan and McCarthy’s collaborations remain some of the most fun comics ever made.
