What's new on the Bryan Talbot
fanpage in 2001


These are the updates that were added to the fanpage during the year of 2001, and they are still here because I hate to delete content that I took time and effort to create - and I hate even more to get rid of the record of all of the changes that I made to the site in the year 2001 - and also a page that offers an excllent non-linear way to browse content. The most up to date what's new page is still on the site, together with the other whats new archives - whats new in 2000, whats new in 1999 and whats new from the start of the site until 1998.

As ever, any questions or comments then mail me.

Added panels 55, 56 and 57 to the Memento strip.

Also updated the links page, and weeded out some dead outgoing links.

Added a colour version of the personification of honesty to gallery twelve, then got struck by a sudden whim and animated the transition from the colour to the black andwhite version - for no good reason - I just felt like it! - watch out for the size of the download though.

Also added a colour version of Zaffra and the Dragon to gallery one: then created a page with both the colour and black and white versions on the same page, so that comparisons can be made between the two.

Yet another longer than intended delay in updating... the day job from hell has got even worse... if that's possible.... anyway: updated the news and links pages.

Updated the CD-Rom publicity page, and the welcome to visitors from the CD page; also the links and news page.

Tuesday September 11th 2001: We Shall Remember and Honour Them.
In response to the terrible events in New York, Washington and Pittsburgh I took the site down from Tuesday to Thursday and placed in it's place the outrage page. It was just something I felt I had to do. We can do our own small part to help by donating to the American Red Cross

Sunday September 2nd 2001
I have created the CD-Rom visitors page, specifically for visitors arriving at the site because of the links in the Heart of Empire CD-Rom: even though the CD isn't published yet I'd love feedback on how to fine-tune it before the expected hordes of visitors arrive!

Tuesday August 28th 2001

A far longer break than normal in updating the site, but hopefully with good reason: first of all I was concentrating on completing the CD-Rom for Heart of Empire: - which is now finished and in the process of being duplicated by Dark Horse as I write... and is available for pre-ordering right now!

I also had my birthday this month, and my first wedding anniversary.... Despite all that: I have managed to update the Heart of Empire CD-Rom homepage, the links page and the news page.

Saturday July 14th 2001
Updated the links page.

Sunday July 8th 2001
Updated the news page, the Heart of Empire homepage and the One Bad Rat homepage.

Also added a lot of new info to the News page.

Tuesday April 17th 2001

Added the Heart of Empire CD-Rom press release page, to give people an idea of what the CD-Rom will contain. Also added screenshot pages, for the contents page, a colours page, an inks page, a pencils page, a notes page, and one page from the introduction, all from the CD-Rom. Also therefore updated the Heart of Empire homepage, and the image navigator page.

I also shamelessly plugged the CD-Rom on the homepage of the site, and on the bulletin board.

Sunday April 1st 2001

The usual reason for not updating more regularly applies again - I have been working non-stop on the forthcoming Heart of Empire CD-Rom, as well as holding down a full time day job. However the good news is that after visiting Bryan last weekend the CD-Rom is almost complete: watch this space for details!

Anyway, on the site, I have updated the acknowledgements to One Bad Rat page, the Bad Rat homepage, the Arkwright page, the links page, the news page and the biography page.

Also I have updated the Papist Affair main page, , after one astute reader noticed that each page is a single page - not a whole issue! (nice one Jim!)

Sunday March 4th 2001.
There's been less updates than usual because of my concentration on getting the Heart of Empire CD-Rom completed; however, there is now a new image in thumbnail gallery 11 of Luther and Rose walking in the woods, taken from the never published Arkwright Portfolio.

Also updated the stuff page, with an email address to get hold of the Luther Arkwight role-playing game.

Sunday January 7th 2001
Today I fulfilled another long held ambition: I have added the cover to the Imagine Magazine (in thumbnail gallery 11) where I first became aware that Bryan Talbot existed! They published a scenario for the Traveller RPG based on Bryan's work, and the rest as they say is history!
