I have been extraordinarily busy lately, and, if I'm honest, a bit stuck on Super Maxwell and the Isle of the Dead. I know what happens to Maxwell and Billy on the Isle of the Dead, and I know how Billy gets to the Isle of the Dead ... But how on Earth (or the 101 Realms) could Maxwell defeat the Goregoths and Trogoths if an army of 20,000 warriors couldn't?
Then I remembered the legend of the Phoenician prince Cadmus, whose story is closely linked with the legend of Jason of Argo ... And if you've read Super Maxwell and the Burning Boys you know what happened to Jason.
Got it! - now "Second to the right, and straight on till morning."

The Doctor and his assistant Amy Pond visited Sunderland this week (March 30) - he came, he saw, and he hopped back into his Tardis. Happily all of my team's hard work was appreciated by the kids of Sunderland who got to see the new episode, The Eleventh Hour, a week before the rest of England. I didn't - I was outside chatting with the Weeping Angel!
Now - back to Maxwell Jones!
