The Case Of The Modern Men is over! If you want to read it from the start, you can do that here. Bad Machinery is now on a break, probably until the new year. Thanks to everyone who wrote emails or sent tweets to say they enjoyed it.
A few people wrote and asked, “what was the supernatural element of that story”? When I started the the last case, I wanted to downplay that aspect a bit. Maybe King Gary’s scooter was evil and cursed, but maybe it wasn’t. It didn’t really matter to me either way. I’m always more interested in other parts of the story.
After six months of mods v rockers, I’m ready to do other things for a while. I’ve spent a lot of time over the last year or so going back into the histories of long-running characters, and Expecting To Fly is the last part of that. It’s a different kind of story, with a slightly different tone. It runs for ten weeks, up to the start of November. (As always, no prior knowledge of my troublesome back catalogue should be required to enjoy these events.)
Then, according to my lightly pencilled comics itinerary, there’s a new Murder She Writes story in the run-up to Christmas. The only thing I can currently tell you is that it is about space.
After that, Bad Machinery should return. I’ll do my best to keep you busy until then.
