(TANGENT. I'm flicking through my big box of APs to inspect certain B Pages. I pick up AP49. Oh no! The next mag in the pile is AP50! I don't have a copy of the CD Edition! This is a terrible catastrophe, a - Oh, hang on, it's stuck to the back cover. The AP49s' combined weight feels deceptively like a normal-sized mag. And this is the mid-95 glory days of 90-page issues. Blikes. What will happen as I near the bottom of the box? END OF TANGENT.)
The Behind Men is one of the most popular B Pages (ie, someone wrote in about it once a few months later) and a personal favourite - strong idea, solidly written, funny pics. Sue's photo-manipulation is peachy swell (she was convinced the size of Behind Man I insisted on for the Bikini Atoll pic was too small to be reproduced in newsprint - pfff) though it's a shame there wasn't time to labour swearingly over the original idea of making it resemble accurately a 30s pulp magazine.
Readers may be briefly entertained to learn I agonised over whether to make the mystery character in the story "the other" or "the Other" and changed my mind and replaced it and printed it out and read through it while nibbling the end of a pencil about 1,717 times, before finally, irrevocably, deciding on "the other" on deadline day, then racing back and swapping it at the last second. I was wrong.
