If anything then the new run will follow nick as he is striker & has always been the main focus of the storys much like roy of the rovers was roy race as player then manager.

Yeah - remember, Eric and Warbury were introduced later on. Nick's the title character, if he isn't in it, then it's a spin off rather than a revival. Nick's the only in-expendable character.

I guess you're both right about Nick, even though the poor guy might not want to return as during the run of Striker he's been framed for rape and murder, been forced into a shotgun wedding, been blown up, had his leg bit off by a shark amongst many other things. :lol:

Personally I hope both Nick and Eric are still there as Striker wouldn't be the same without either of them but what makes me wonder is the fact the characters in Striker age in real time meaning Eric must be somewhere near his 80s now, Nick and Vanessa will be somewhere in their 40s and many of the players must be coming towards the end of their careers. Thats what's making me wonder what this 'new direction' is.

Lew Stringer recently announced a new British digital-only comic that's coming in a few months time, could Striker be appearing in that?
As it's digital-only it will of course also have the option to add some animated bits

That's odd. What appeared where it should've been? Was Wallace & Gromit or even the entire puzzle pullout missing?

Just thought I'd add to this that the digital-only comic I was referring to was Aces Weekly. It doesn't feature Striker as you surmised but it does feature some great all-new strips, and only works out at a £1 an issue.

No Wallace and Gromit either, been informed that the Striker strip today was on the back of the puzzles page, in the Scottish edition its an advert

Both strips are always on the back of the puzzles pullout on Sundays. The editor of the Scottish Sun will be getting a stern talking to from their English counterpart, I suppose. The advert should've been placed somewhere else.

That's poor for Scottish fans of Striker that can't access the internet as missing a strip doesn't help with keeping up with the story.

As of today, Striker is bigger. They've taken over Wallace and Gromit's space.

I think Striker is going from strength to strength at the moment. The Li Ming dying and Nick inheriting her money is brilliant.

Nashy has huge plans for the strip, which is now in its 30th year.

I have just read all 1500 copies of the volume 2 hardback has sold out so this bodes well for future books.

Yeah, volumes 3 and 4 are already planned.

And a new storyline started this week.
