MediaFire Links

A guy over at Scanarama called Norman has informed me that the MediaFire links aren't sending people where they should, and sure enough when I ran the blog in Firefox, it wasn't letting me in to them.  I have realised that just having the directories unlocked is not enough, you have to click the options, and then 'Share' and it then gives you a proper link!

I cannot find a way to link the project as a whole, but I can do individual years.

These links should work....

71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79

I'll do more soon.

New Tomorrow People Book

I've been in contact with a guy called Andy Davidson, who is in the process of putting together a new book on The Tomorrow People.  He said he has gleaned a lot of information on the Look-in side of things from the Look-out site.  I have also sent more scans to bring him up to date with the TP strips I have.

Although there is no firm publishing date yet, the book is going to focus on the series mainly, but will include some stuff about the TP strip and features that appeared in Look-in, There will definitely be a strip chronology, and hopefully one or two strips will appear in complete form, but I can't be sure about this, but they must want the scans for something?!

Of course if I get more information about the book I will let you know, and hopefully a lot of Look-in fans as well as TP fans will think the book worth getting hold of.


My ten 1973 issues turned up, so lots of good reading to be had over the next week or so!  9 of the 10 had no middle pages, but this is a common problem with lower priced issues, but all the strips are ok!  I have updated the 73 checklist and you can see it above.

1974 is now up to date on the MediaFire Project Slow but sure, i'm getting there.  I made Simpler looking checklists, and below there is the one for 1974, I will republish them as they are updated.

1973 will get 10 new additions in a few days courtesy of a very nice deal on eBay!  1973 are amongst the most expensive issues when they appear on eBay, so I was pleased to spot a very nice deal on 10 issues, just under £10 including the postage!  Keep scanning eBay for those issues, there are bargains to be had!

If you can help with any of the green spot on my checklists, and fancy a bit of scanning, e-mail me.

1972 and 1973 posted

Hi folks,

Years 72 and 73 are now up to date with issues that were on Look-out, so you can go there to download any you want.  I have dispensed with the checklists, Blogger seems to have trouble with the larger image anyway.  I'll do something smaller with just numbers at a later date.

To let you know the site has actually come back after being down for quite a few days, you can get to it at:

but it is still giving problems and lots of links are duff, so till I can get to grips with a more modern web design software, it just the blog i'm afraid.  I'm playing with Serif WebPlus at the moment, and i'm quite liking it so watch this space...

There's also the wiki at:

Though I haven't done anything to that for a bit.

As well as getting these older issues posted, I have been scanning too and there will be two new issues on 1st of every month.

Go get those issues...

72 and 73

Hi and welcome to the new blog which i've started in replacement of 'John's look-out'.
Hopefully in time this blog will give access to every issue of Look-in that was ever printed.
you can access a lot of the issues that were on MediaFire
and over the next month or so i'm going to try to add all of the issues that were on Look-out, but wern't yet on MediaFire, so you will be able to access every issue so far.
Subscribe to the blog and I can keep you updated here, and you will be aware of every update.

There are lots of comic readers on the net but here is a particularly good free one you can use to read the strips


Just load the software and you can read the strips from the zip files without even having to unpack them.
