Over at Oliver Frey's website, it looks like they're prepping Terminal Man for a release in a couple of months. Quite pricey (£17.95 for 52 pages), but it's clearly short-run stuff—these guys aren't DC or Marvel.

Anyway, The Art of Oliver Frey was great, so if anyone wants a copy of his and Gosnell's comic in proper print, this is likely to be the one and only chance you'll get.

Sounds intriguing, although I agree it is a little pricey for my blood...

Official press release is in the Announcements section here.

Not really my type of thing, but I've pre-ordered anyway :)

I've mainly gone from the perspective that it is part of my personal history

Three missing pages are being repainted by Oli, rather than them just scanning old issues and cleaning up the scans? Man, that's some dedication.

If it came with the finished Terminal Man 2 I would be tempted

I was wondering that, since I thought that the series hadn't finished at the time.

Was the written story finished so "all" Oli would have to do is draw it? I thought the series wasn't finished due to Oli's workload at the time...

All vague recollections to me, where's Mr. Zzapback when you need him? ;-)

In France actually. :)
Btw Oli's 'comics' were never my cup of tea. Sorry!

I don't think any more of it has come out. A newer Fantasy Art of Oilver Frey book was a Kickstarter very recently, although I just missed it. I'm getting a bit jaded by Kickerstarters at this stage, they just seem to make things expensive. :( Anyway, I didn't read anything about that having any new Terminal Man art

Pity how they would start a new story, then just axe it and leave it as forgotten.

I have just finished re-reading the original and it is a decent little comic strip, although there is always the argument if they fit on with a games magazine. However a few did have them round this time, such as C&VG (Bug Hunters I think)

Comics are insanely time-consuming. I suspect Oli just didn't have the time for what was, as you note, far from a core aspect of the magazine. If something was going to get dropped, it was that rather than spot illustrations and the covers.

I don't think it was dropped per se but more fell by the way side. I don't think the story was finished and the magazine(s) had moved on. It got easier to fill the magazine with other game related editorial. That coupled with the work required meant it wasn't pursued as a project. I can remember watching Oli paint / illustrate some of the pages. He was always a fast worker and it sort of came to live in front of your eyes.
