CSO Issue 2

Hello! Nice to see you again. Thanks for coming back. Today sees the launch of Issue 2, FREE to view online. Just click the link to the left to enjoy the new issue. Issue 2 has had a revamped retro look, which I hope you will like. CSO Issue 2 has been a long time in the making and you'd be forgiven for thinking it was never going to happen, considering the launch issue was in 2012 but as with every project that is a hobby, it is only done in precious spare time, so it's a joy to finally release it now. Best of all... Issue 3 is in production too!

CSO Issue 2 Update

Issue 2 of CSO is now finally under construction. Yes, it's been nearly 2 years since Issue 1 but CSO Towers is still very much in operation. A new site design and logo has been created and Issue 2 promises to bring you the popular, the obscure and the plain just unexpected. We hope to have the new issue completed before the end of the year. See you soon!
