Has it really been so long since the last issue?!

But the wait is over and #21 is well on the way - be sure to grab yourself a copy to read Cushing & Sons - Monster Hunters! By Mark Howard and Scott Twells

An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

Stephen is of course a tough act to follow, but it looks like Dunk! is doing an excellent job. Looking forward to this story.

Dunk! has done an absolutely bang on job and I can't wait to get it out there for everyone to see.

Our cover story is another adventure for Cushing & Sons - Monster Hunters

I love this strip so much I thought I'd share the first couple of pages with you so you can see how good it is; Tintin inspired art and the story is a buddy movie in comic form - the two classical composers combine forces to solve a supernatural murder mystery. I mean, what's not to love?





And if you like what you see and want to read the rest, why not buy a copy?

Okay chaps I need your help. If you are reading this then you have probably read the  PARAGON comic threads or you may have read an issue previously. Hopefully you've enjoyed it or enjoyed what what you've seen here.  As I write I have given out more contributor comps of this issue than I've sold. And that is disheartening considering how much effort goes into producing an issue. To not even have made double figures in sales makes me feel it isn't worth that effort. I think it's a great comic, people who give me feedback tell me similar. Hopefully you do, too.

 If they grew up reading British comics in the 70s and 80s and still read comics then this will be for them. The fact that the Treasury Collection editions of Misty, Faceache, One Eyed Jack and Leopard from Lime Street from Rebellion seem to did so well tells me there is an audience out there if only I could reach it.
So please, help spread the word. Buy a copy yourself and see how the publication has evolved since last you read an issue.
Without your help to increase the audience I don't think I'll carry on with it, which is a crying shame as there are some wonderful scripts and art lined up for future issues.
