2000AD – do I really need to say anything about this? It is the ultimate comic. I’ve been reading for more than 30 years and wrote paragraph after paragraph extolling its virtues before deleting them. They weren’t needed. It’s 2000AD: if you don’t know it, then go get a copy, you won’t regret it.
Disconnected Press – I discovered them at the Bristol Comic Expo (which is worth a post of its own some time!) and was so impressed with the professional standards that they produce their products to. I afraid I only picked up Disconnected Vol 1, but was so excited by it. That particular title focussed on short stories set in small towns: because stories don’t just happen in big cities! What an array of artistic and writing talent, and easily the best printing/binding of any of the small press that at I saw at Bristol. They haven’t posted that they’re going to Bristol this year, but I’m really hoping they are!
The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel – I guess to some this is a ‘replacement’ for Dr WTF! and maybe it is. But Owen who is behind both has, if his “promo rhino” (his words!) is to be believed, put together some amazing strips from some even more amazing individuals. The Journal hasn’t hit the streets yet, but the presses are rolling and the launch is imminent. I’m really looking forward to seeing issue 1. I should also say that I met Owen at the Bristol Comic Expo (yes, that again) and he seemed a thoroughly decent chap, and I think I’m now as big of a fan of him as I am of his comics – I hope he’s at Bristol in May too!
We would love to be associated with all of these titles, here’s hoping it can happen!
