Can't believe you guys notice this stuff! Yeah, Supremacy was almost pic-for-pic identical between CF and the ZZAP! that was. I guess we should have been flattered.
No, it wasn't worth the effort of going legal; the courts would have kicked us out and by then it was too late anyway. We just sat there and outsold them, month after month
Working on CF was hard. There were a few staff problems, but I enjoyed doing my own C64 mag (I never get to edit ZZAP!), and it was good training for other mags I would go on and launch. And working with Andy Dyer was a real privilege - easily one of the funniest men I've ever had the pleasure to meet. I'm still very proud of CF, although I now only have the single copy of issue 1 issue up in the loft.
BTW: to my knowledge Jaz Rignall has never written RedEye. Certainly up till very recently (and including my last stint on Edge), it's always been another journalist - who shall, of course, remain nameless.
Bob Wade is back working for Future as a freelance prod ed on some of our practical needlecraft titles - he loves it, surrounded by women all day long!
Penn, of course, works in software dev. and writes a column for Edge.
