ComicScene Issue 10 is out 21st November – and it’s two magazines in one! The main magazine is for the ‘grown ups’ and there is a free pull out 24 page all ages comic ‘Corker!’ for you to share to your kids, nieces, nephews, grandkids, library, school or community space. This is a unique approach to introduce comic reading and we encourage you to subscribe at http://www.getmycomics.com/ComicScene
One of the highlights of the issue is an adapted extract from Julia Rounds new book on Misty and British Comics ‘Gothic For Girls’ . Also former editor of Tiger Barrie Tomlinson writes exclusively for us on 65 years of the title which introduced Roy of the Rovers.
Those currently reading ComicScene Issue 9 (in shops now with the free Great War Dundee comic) will get part two of interviews with Andy Diggle, Scott Ian and Kirk Hammett. We also have a original Judge Dredd cover by 2000AD artist John Charles.
As Orbital Comic shop announce they are no longer selling weekly comics we look at the changing face of the comic retail industry. There’s over ten pages of small press and indie coverage, including the first part of a major series on mental health in comics.
From this issue we bring some fantastic comic strips to newsstands for the first time. In the ‘grown up’ section we have Judge Dredd co creator John Wagner, Alan Grant and Dan Cornwell on the first series of ‘Rok of the Reds’. They have just completed a successful kickstarter campaign for the sequel ‘Rok the God’ – but this is where football met aliens for the first time!
After successful appearances in ComicScene over the summer we also bring you Book 2 of Andy W Clift ‘Captain Cosmic’ and Time Bomb Comics ‘Lady Flintlock’. Both proved immensely popular and it’s great to see them return for this brand new format for ComicScene Magazine.
Inside this issue is also the 24 page all ages comic Corker! Four new strips in total including the continuing adventures of superhero Whackoman, talking dragon and knight Gallant and Amos, space adventures of Slash Moron and Megatomic Battle Rabbit come to newsstands across the UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada and the USA for the first time. We will be taking a closer look at each of these strips leading up to the launch of Issue 10 on 21st February.
This is quite an exciting and unique development for the magazine and gives mums, dads, carers, uncles, aunts, grandparents, librarians, teachers and those with a passion for comics the chance to introduce kids to comics, help improve reading, have fun and perhaps make a new generation of comic fans and comic creators It also still provides conic fans our regular comic articles and the chance to discover something new each and every issue too!
If you like the sound of ComicScene Issue 10 we’d love you to jump on board and you can order the magazine in any newsagent, comic shop or at http://www.getmycomics.com/ComicScene today!
