ComicsFlix are to return to publishing. Today they have announced two new titles – a subscription only monthly comic magazine with a social purpose and the return of 80’s/90’s stripzine ‘Atomic’ in a one off summer special.
COMICSCENE UK IS COMING
“ComicScene UK’ will be a SUBSCRIBER ONLY specialist full colour A4 monthly magazine with all your latest news and articles on classic comics, reprinted material and new Comics and creators. For fans and comic enthusiasts it will also be a showcase for cosplay, fandom and stripzines now and from the last 50 years. The first 48+ page issue will be available from May 1st 2018, just prior to Free Comic Book Day and monthly from August.
You can subscribe now by direct debit, online for 12 issues for price of 11 and a FREE spud gun (Spud Gun promotion available on orders made on and before 14th February), 6 issues or advance order of issue one – details here.
HELP FUND COMIC WORKSHOPS FOR KIDS
A limited print run magazine ‘ComicScene UK’ will give a percentage of the profits from the title to provide free kids comic workshops across the U.K.
You can subscribe today to the print edition and get 12 issues for the price of 11 and a free spud gun with your first issue – visit the ComicsFlix shop here.
Tony Foster explained, “The editor of ‘i’ newspaper once said can you imagine if the internet had been invented first and then someone had the bright idea to produce a newspaper that brought all the best bits together in one place – how revolutionary and cool that would be. That’s ‘ComicScene UK’ Magazine.”
“Like our ComicsFlix.org website it will be for comic fans of all ages, covering anything from Dan Dare, 2000AD, Misty, Beano, Roy of the Rovers, Judge Dredd, Captain Britain, Tank Girl, Miracleman, Doctor Who, reprint material and more. There will be a big emphasis on news, cosplay, 50+ years of fandom, new talent and small press Comics. There will be some Europe, US & comic related coverage but the emphasis will be on the current UK comic scene and comic nostalgia. Articles will have room to breathe and be enjoyed in the bath!”
“It promises to be a good read and a fantastic opportunity for the comic community to come together and help fund Comic Workshops to encourage kids to draw and to employ professional artists to run those workshops! We have a target to run at least 20 workshops a year. All our auctions and published titles will contribute to that. It would be wonderful if comic fans out there could support it by subscribing today at our online shop.”

Produced in Scotland the title introduced such talents as Simon Fraser (Nikolai Dante/Doctor Who/Kingsman), Garry Marshall (Megazine/Missionary Man/Roy of the Rovers) and John Erasmus (Accident Man). After celebrating it’s 30th birthday last year the gang have agreed to come back together for a one off summer special for June 2018!
Editor Tony Foster explains, “Yes, the rumours are true. Atomic is back. ‘ComicScene UK’ is going to reprint some of our classic strips and then there will a brand spanking new summer special with Simon Fraser, Garry Marshall, John Erasmus, Tom Walbank (Torso Tales, Bluesman), David Cairns (Cughead), Michael Duncan, Andy Macfarlane, hopefully John Miller (Girl With The Flowery Trousers) and a few more who have been harder to track down. Graham Manley (Near Myths, Diceman, Judge Dredd) whose work appeared in the very first issue of Atomic has agreed to do something new for us. We also have some new talent, a few BIG surprises and are calling out for submissions.
