I’ll pass it on to the folks at Boom. I don’t get involved in those decisions, so I don’t really know the answer. Glad. they’re enjoying it, though.
So while I can’t answer too many questions — confidentiality issues, general decency, and limits on the number of hours in the day I can spend here — I’ll try to answer questions that seem of general interest as often as I can.
General caution: please don’t ask me to review portfolios, scripts, or help you get work (time just doesn’t permit).
There’s been no American edition. If there was a German one, I’ve never seen it.
Different editors probably had different ‘targets’ in mind…no one did any kind of real market research, or complex guidance in those days, it was all on instinct. And remember that the typical adult literacy/education level in those years was what we’d expect of very young kids these days.
I wrote the ending of the series to open the possibility that it was an alternate future because I felt that elements Keith had added to the plot of the last arc took it too far away from the future I envisioned. It wasn’t conclusive, though, just a possibility…you can choose for yourself.
My schedule for that period is very volatile, as my daughter’s due in early May, and grandchild-to-be takes priority. Can you send me details at [email protected] and perhaps I can make a last minute decision to appear?
Nope. More influenced by the Sector General stories by James White, which chronicled a space station hospital that treated all sorts of alien beings.
Doubt it. DC didn’t save any such ‘papers’ in those years or for decades thereafter. It’s possible Peggy Broome is still alive (I’ve lost track), but it would be very unusual for a comics writer of that generation to save any drafts or notes, much less to pass them along.
Sorry, no memory of how that happened.
