“I’ll glue it onto the back of one of my comic pages and it’ll add a bit of authenticity to it. It’ll be like my pal Niall’s STAR WARS STORYBOOK”.

Yes, the storybook, which I would have killed for. I probably… no I did!—lie awake at night thinking of it.

Anyway, as for this photo, it’s a very touching image of the two loveable droids isn’t it! There’s almost something even more poignant in that they’re lost in the desert—in an old battered black and white photo—in an old battered home-made comic, unseen by anyone but me and a couple of friends until 2 years ago.
