    About two weeks ago I heard from an authoritative source that Walter Simonson was still finishing up the artwork for issue three.

    Same source said it wasn't known if DC would release no. 3 as soon as they could, or maybe wait until near to the time Walter finishes up the art for no.4; that is still anybody’s guess.

    We can only be as patient as possible. It will be worth waiting for, and it will make a lovely book collection one day.

    Meanwhile why not re-read some of Craig Russell’s excellent comics, or some of that Moorcock bloke’s prose works. I gather some of them are pretty good. :)

      I am glad that E:TMOAS 3 is still being worked on and that it will eventually come out.I had the Russell comics but found his character renditions a bit too camp .As for Moorcock's prose, I've just ordered The White Wolf's Son and I expect it to arrive well before E:TMOAS 3 comes out!

        Very tasteless, like rededicating a memorial. Not that Elton even wrote the words, anyway. His mate Bernie Taupin writes almost all his lyrics, and he wrote both 'Candles'.

          Thanks Michael

          Hi all, I'm a fannatic of all your work Michael, so I'm look forward to see the third one. Tell me when please!!

          PD. Me and all your fans here in Spain would really appreciate it if you came to the "Semana Negra" in Gijأ³n to talk about all of your work. Right here you have much more readers that you actually think. I'm sure of it. Congratulations for almost all (I daresay all) that you have written, and specially for the making of a sorcerer, which is a fantastic stuff.

            Well, it wasn't much of a song. Bernie T's done better. Ironically, he used to claim that my books inspired his lyrics. I hope to god that wasn't one of the lyrics. I'm inclined to like MM better than the Princess of Wales. Thanks for your good wishes. We've just come from Spain, of course. The weather actually made my foot worse this time. We'd miscalculated because, of course, it's not usually that hot in May and June.
            The Elric books are to be reissued soon, I learn, in Spain. Maybe I should come next year, all being well!

              Most intriguing. Did he mention any specific songs?

                He used to talk about it in old interviews, especially in connection with Yellow Brick Road and stuff, but never being much of an Elton John fan I never really took in any of the songs.

                  Think it's worth waiting for.

                    Maybe if there was a Janis Joplin comic, then maybe he'd understand?

                      Ah, the Crosier-Newburg-Perdix Axis, whilst not actively addicted to Elricotonin, nevertheless tends to possess strong Corneliophilic and Pyatotropic tendencies that may appear as a form of ersatz addiction.... :lol:

                          As often, it's the adulterated stuff you find on the streets that's dangerous. They mix it with RPG *. Cheaper and more addictive.

                            Mr Moorcock are you sure that Walt hasn't come a cropper/shuffled off his mortal coil/met an untimely demise? The poor fellow seems to be taking an awfully long time to complete issue # 3.Shouldn't you perhaps give Walt a phone call to make sure that he isn't lying on the floor in a diabetic coma or has been kidnapped by aliens?

                            But SERIOUSLY, Walt does seem to be taking an awfully long time.Is there something you want to tell us Mr M?Have you two had a falling out in the past 6 months?

                              Marco,

                              Where's the friendly enthusiam in your post?
                              The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

                                As I recall, there was some question mark over whether DC would publish E:MOAS #3 as soon as it was ready or wait until Walt had finished up E:MOAS #4 as well and then publishing them 'together' so to speak. If they end up going for the latter option that we'll have an even longer wait for the second half of Mike & Walt's opus.

                                But that will be as nothing to the wait some of us have endured for part 4 of Mike's 'Between the Wars' tetralogy, so we should be grateful for small mercies. :)

                                Of course, if DC had wanted a comic they could churn out in a matter of weeks perhaps they should have contracted the services of Kenny Who*, rather than Walt Simonson. :D
