In the near future is there possibly going to be both parts of The Rainbow Orchid contained within one volume? That would work.

Cheers for the comments - thanks. In answer to the questions about publication, yes - part two will be printed when finished, and at the very end all three parts will be printed as one volume (hopefully square-bound).

That would be great - if the colour version does get realised, it would be absolutely brilliant, and I'd be first in line for a copy ! I'm guessing that the start-up costs of printing a colour version would be considerable, but we can always hope - it's a superb work, and most definitely deserves to be seen in glorious full-colour.

Sorry, I meant all three parts within one volume. Thanks tybalt! I saw part of the comic and it looks great! Richard, I'm next in line then.

Just read Episode 1 of Part 2 online. A wonderful comic, amazing art work and an epic storyline. Fantastic. Just the sort of comic i've been waiting to read. I have part 1 in printed form, and I am awaiting Part 2 in printed form. So you're making it available in both print and online? The online teaser was a great read in strip form (online comics can be clumsy in their readability), but I do preffer print on paper, and I would be willing to pay extra for colour.

I'm with you - I also prefer comics on paper. The web-comic is half-experiment (I'm interested to see how well it could do), half a way to keep me working on the comic regularly. But it will definitely see print eventually.

The webstrip does lose something - for instance the natural History Museum in the first strip of part two - you can see the full page version here:

I see your point about the full page. When reading the full page my eyes started to dart around the page taking in its full glory, something thats also missed if the page would be full sized as I would be pulling scroll bars around. I suppose it boils down to the online comic debate - I presume you've checked out Scott McClouds website? He has some interesting ideas about online comics and the future of comics in general.

Biggles? I never heard of him. Either way, this is the coolest bit of info, as I'm a huge Skut fan. I'm going to find this now, thanks so much!

Sorry to bust into the Biggles thread :-) with some dreaded self-publicity - an interview with yours-truly at 2000AD Review:
