ComicScene – one year review in words and pictures…

We launched ComicScene a year ago – we are about to launch our tenth issue. We thought it would be fun to list all our contents so far, with pictures of some of the comics we featured.

If you order 5 comics at, including ComicScene monthly, you will get 10 per cent off your comics and be sent a ComicScene ‘Ultimate Digi Pack’ , worth £20 , absolutely FREE. It includes the first six issues of ComicScene Volume 1, the ComicScene Annual, Crikey Collected Volume 1 and the AKA Tapes featuring 2000AD. Over 1000 pages of material free in digital for your phone, tablet or desktop.
