Lovely; he must have appreciated how informed on, and enthusiastic about, the subject you were. If only we had a UK equivalent of Fantagraphics or Library of American Comics who would collect, restore and reprint these, complete, in deluxe hardbacks, with notes and essays, as has happened to so many US newspaper strips.

Thanks for the kind words David, glad you liked the article. I agree, Flook really deserves to be collected in the kind of quality volumes that Peanuts etc have been over the last 10 or so years. In the meantime, the best I can offer is the unofficial facebook page which periodically re-runs vintage strips. A new story fro 1968 started a few days ago: A new story starts today! https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Flook ... 8764250002
