Those are good comments -- about 'nostalgia for the world we live in - or the world we lived in at the time the book came out': yes: it makes ordinary modern reality seem like something fond and lost.

(Perhaps John Wyndham et al did that too?)

The comic within the novel, I felt, might have been central and important (as in, say, KAVALIER AND CLAY), but actually went nowhere. The version I bought and read contained no images, as I think others' did. I no longer remember any of the details of the comic as ekphrastically described.

I don't think any editions had illustrations, did they?

mine has two pages right at the very back, a mocked up cover and a splash page so effectively just 2 pictures with about 2 sentences of text.

It's a TV programme?

Yes, it was turned into an excellent 10-part series.
