Today we unveil details of our Kangazang! Christmas giveaway.

All purchasers who buy the CD or book will get a Mike Collins Sixth Doctor print free. The print depicts Colin as he bounces on a Space Hopper across a colourful alien landscape.

Mike Collins is famous for his artwork on Spider-Man, Transformers, Doctor Who, and Zoids. He also drew Judge Dredd, as well as Batman, Superman, Flash, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Wonder Woman and the Justice League.

Mike will take part in the first Cardiff International Comics Expo in February – where a special panel will be dedicated to all things Kangazang! Mike said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the Kangazang! audiobook and was more than happy to contribute artwork to celebrate Colin Baker's perfect narration of the wonderfully weird world of Kangazang!”

Kangazang! was produced in the same building where the Doctor Who episode, Blink was filmed, as well as the Torchwood episode, Everything Changes.

Kangazang! is available as a special edition 3 CD Disc release plus bonus DVD available to buy online. The DVD contains a wealth of extras. In an exclusive interview, Colin discusses his time on Doctor Who, his love of sci-fi, and, of course, Kangazang!

While stocks last - get in quick!


Terry Cooper, author of Kangazang!, attended the recent Dimensions Doctor Who convention in Newcastle, signing copies of the novel and CD audio version (featuring Sixth Doctor Colin Baker). As well as bumping into a friendly Dalek, Terry also met up with Colin on stage to talk about Kangazang!

Colin gave Kangazang! the big thumbs up, telling the crowd how much he enjoyed recording the story in Cardiff, working alongside Terry and actress Claire Cage. He also promised to sign copies of the CD for fans: "Wherever I am in the country, if you see me, I'm more than happy to sign a copy," he said.

Candy Jar books would like to thank Derek at Tenth Planet Events as well as Colin Baker for all their support.
