Finally found a copy (in a motorway service station!) and have been flicking through it for a day or two.
One thing the magazine needs (imo) is a good comic. Something to make people pick it up in the shop for a quick browse, then buy it cos they've spotted an article.
This is how most people got into BiKE magazine - pick it up to read the Ogri, buy it to read the article they spotted.
Which biking cartoons can you think of that VD should try to get involved?
If I knew how to make a poll it would go something like this :
Joe Bar : Plenty of copy, but would need (re)-translation
Fred Gassit : Australian, and often slightly odd - but very funny.
Ogri: already snaffled - but could Paul Sample be tempted away from EMAP?
Planet Ovlov - an MCN strip - but could be re-created?
Any other suggestions? Anyone know a good cartoonist? I'm sure there's plenty of funny stories (both long and short) in the lives of VDers that could be converted into strips.
(I'm afraid I didn't like TWO's "Charlie Bikeman" series very much - the storyline was pants and personally I don't like Mockett's artwork very much, sorry Mockett! - was it Mockett who did that one?? )
