Pepper's Ghost Comic Book?
« on: Sun, 2006-06-18, 20:38:46 »
Maybe this was discussed somewhere else in this forum, but I didn't see it, so I'll put it here.
Around the time PG was released the band made mention of a possible Knights of the London Fog comic book-release. There was even some talk about it maybe being available at the time the tour would start. As I loved the little book that came with the CD, this idea appealed to me greatly. Sadly, I did not hear about it anymore since that time. Any news on this?
Why do you laugh at my hopeless appeal for your mercy?

Yes, that was a great idea, and I'd also love to see it come to life - and would most surely pay almost any price for it ;D (*hint, hint*) Here's the original thread about it.

If I remember correctly the book wasn't made in the end due to financial problems. It would have simply been too expensive. Clive, correct me if I'm wrong.

That's correct.... I really wish we could have done it. I've had many ideas for some great stories...;)
Sadly, this is an expense that we can't commit ourselves to. Especially because we have to consider the next album.
So if there are any budding publishers or Entrepreneurs out there... let me know.....;)

Well, I don't want to ruin the party for you guys, but don't expect to much of the next Arena album... Clive sent me a videomessage of himself in which he says the following:
"Hi, Clive here. I almost forgot to tell you that the Contagion The Max project is cancelled. Better yet, I've started writing some popsongs. The next album will be called "Love" and some singles will follow quickly. I hope you proggers don't mind!"

In an email to me (it will be on The Cage website soon (I think somewhere next week)) he said he wanted to make some more commercial poprock songs. He even mentioned a videoclip with scarcely dressed dancing girls!

Sad news guys... :( I think the Arena we knew is over now... :'(

But it might turn out the good way of course, maybe he's just teasing us.

I have to remember not to be drinking coffee when reading... I just coated my monitor with spewed coffee while reading Clive's C+W comment. ;)

Prog-country. If anyone can pull it off, it's Arena.

I would like to hear Arena cover some Spice Girls tunes, or maybe The Cheeky Girls' "Touch my Bum"

That could be the subtitle for "Contagion Max"

Arena with Britney instead of Rob, oor maybe they can do a duet on the new western concept prog album, what a mixture will this be!
Walk along the Waterfall, watching as the world turns red
Wonder where the river flows, and the blood on the River bed
Poison lies to close to us, Reach across the salt and Sand
Moving Deeper into the Land
