Peter,
Looks like an issue I will enjoy! Not that the previous were not enjoyable, but, simply that this issue looks like fairly mainstream stuff. A pleasent change.
Kind regards,
John.

Yes, I know what you are saying John. A good balanced mix of human powered vehicles and superheroes. Thats always a good combination.

do I get a mention Steven?

Sort of, Roger. Not directly, its subtle. It involves special dust. I guess you'll just have to wait till the brown envelope plops thru your slot.

what about the several hours it took you to fix the rear wheel puncture? :-)

That, er, challenge shall we say, gets its own paragraph.
