I have been waiting to blow up Prison Planet since page 1. So I was rather relieved when Page 30 of HUZZAH!! presented itself with the opportunity to do just that (even though technically its just the Prison Planet part and not Voldar itself that blows up).

My latest HUZZAH!!'s are up. The idea for the look of the Voldarians came from talking to Rob Davis who'd mentioned a design he had in his sketchbook of an race of Hairy-angler faced fish aliens with old men's heads instead of lights. I figured that at this point the secret of Voldar had to really be a lot more than just the Uroborus child and figured on the planet of Voldar itself actually being the prisoner given the events of chapter 5. So now the concept of a prison planet isn't so much a planet full of convicts but a restraining device that coats and existing planet in an artificle surface. The silos you see from page 1 onward are essentially gigantic restraining bolts dotted all over the prison planet's surface.

I absolutely love this track and was delighted to hear it being used as the title track for Stewart Lee's new series "Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle". It was an international hit for Elias and his Zig Zag Jive Flutes back in 1958.
