Duncan Taylor har igennem længere tid arbejdet på at få lavet en lille ansigtsløftning af serierne Rare Auld og NC ². Og det er nu en realitet. De to serier et simpelthen blevet lagt sammen til én serie, den nye DIMENSIONS, der fremover vil repræsentere aftapninger fra en alder på 39 år og nedefter.
