The first monthly issue of ComicScene UK comes out 1st August in print and digital.
You can pre order the collectors edition magazine in our new online shop here.
In issue 1 we have an exclusive chapter from Pat Mills new book on Slaine and the work of co creator Angie Kincaid.
We celebrate 40 years of Misty with Dr Julia Round and 25 years of Vertigo, including an interview with Karen Berger.
We go behind the scenes of the new 2000AD Sci Fi Special and focus on the comics of Judge Anderson. 2000AD Sci Fi Special writer Olivia Hicks also writes about Velda and the fabulous four Supercats.
There is an array of classic and new female characters in the issue. We take a look at Liam Sharpe on cover star Wonder Woman, Professor Peabody from Dan Dare, What Halo Jones did next, Octobriana, Minnie the Minx, Cat Girl, Doctor Who companions, Tank Girl art, The Angels, Mata Hari and Bella at the Bar.
We focus on top female characters past and present too from Susie Gander, Rachael Smith, Marie Duval, Fay Dalton, Sarah Laing and Roy of the Rovers Yvonne Hutton, whose career is also remembered by former editor Barrie Tomlinson.
On top of all that we have the second part of our feature on the rise and fall of ‘Toxic’, the new title from Rebellion ‘The Vigilant’, why we are unlikely to see another ‘Eagle’ or ‘Scream’ on the newsstands ever again, 50 years of comic cons, the return of Whakoman and Pat Mills takes us back to his time on girls comics including ‘Tammy’ and ‘Jinty’ and why girls comics all but disappeared in his column ‘The Last Word’.
To round it off we have some great new Slaine artwork to share with you and some lucky people will be able to win a Comichaus subscription and a Kindle Fire.
