THE TOMORROW PEOPLE...
This is Volume One of a two-volume collection featuring every Look-In strip of The Tomorrow People. It includes many pages lovingly restored from the original art boards, and four never-before-printed pages of missing comic adventure action (the details of how and why are also inside).
The award-winning Chinbeard Books, in collaboration with Rebellion, Oak Tree, and the Treasury of British Comics, are proud to showcase the creative flair of John M. Burns, Roger Price, and Angus P. Allan in the first futuristic set of this limited edition collection."
The Tomorrow People - the next stage of human evolution - first ‘jaunted’ onto British television screens in 1973. The brainchild of writer/creator Roger Price, this innovative group of young people with paranormal abilities proved hugely popular, and eight extraordinary series were broadcast on ITV.
Look-In was a very long-running weekly magazine and TV guide for youngsters, but is perhaps best remembered for its beautifully illustrated comic strips. It was in this form that the Homo Superior began new adventures alongside the television series, providing five years of incredible, illustrated exploits.

ROBIN OF SHERWOOD: THE COMPLETE LOOK-IN COMICS
Richard Carpenter’s Robin of Sherwood is often considered the finest version of the Robin Hood legend. A lavish and hugely popular television series that ran from 1984 to 1986.
It was turned into an accompanying comic strip by the bestselling young people’s magazine Look-In; which also ran a wealth of interviews, features, and articles (alongside other comic strips) for all the most popular family and children’s commercial television series of the time.
The Robin of Sherwood strips ran for the entirety of three years that the series was broadcast, encompassing a change of actor in the role of Robin Hood; some in colour, some in black and white. Rebellion, Chinbeard Books and Spiteful Puppet have collated the entire run of these exquisitely illustrated and action-packed comic strips in this unique, limited-edition collection, with every page carefully and lovingly restored.
The artists were Mike Noble, with Arthur Ranson and Phil Gascoine, and the writer across the whole run of strips was Angus Allan. For fans of these artists and writer, this is a snapshot of their work collected together for the first time. For fans of Look-In magazine, it also offers some of those interviews, articles, and features that adorned the pages alongside the comic strip.
This hardback book features specially written inserts by Robert Hammond (restoration technician and graphic designer), alongside Hooded Man author Andrew Orton, and commissioning editor Barnaby Eaton-Jones. It also features a foreword essay on the artist Mike Noble (who drew 95% of the strips), written by noted comic book artist Lee Sullivan – who also provides a brand-new, specially commissioned piece of art too.
