The Front


Get ready for another flurry of miffed missives on The List's letters page as the Glasgow Fabulous boys, Michael Collin and Daniel Jackson. branch out to produce their first comic. Entitled 2001: A Jakey Odyssey, the spin-off from the popular cartoon strip in our Clubs section takes familiar faces from the Glasgow clubbing world and turns them into superheroes. Due to be published in the middle of October, it'll be on sale for £2 in selected outlets including Borders Books on Buchanan Street.

And because we’re generous types. we've got ten copies of 2001: A Jakey Odyssey to give away. In the spirit of controversy generated by the strip, we want you to think of the nastiest thing you can say about Glasgow Fabulous. The ten rudest entries will win. Send your entries to or on a postcard to The List, 14 High Street, Edinburgh EH1 lTE by Friday 18 October.
