Yes, that's a great review, Davey - they really get the point of the comic, and of the small-press in general. The ability to go for broke on idiosyncratic ideas is one of the things I love most about creating these sort of stories.

I've been re-reading the Battle Ganesh strip drawn by the late, great Stephen Prestwood. It's a cracking tale!
Who would be interested in a collected edition?

As I gear up to launch the next issue of the fantastic anthology comic, PARAGON, I thought you'd like a sneak peak at the cover of #22 by the magnificent Mal Earl.



Interior preview art to follow. This is not to be missed!

Davey, is that Jikan on the cover?

Also- for #22, how many pages and what else is in the book this time?

It certainly is  :)
Jikan - the time travelling demon hunter (think a cross between Hammer film Captain Cronos and WARRIOR's Father Shandor with a samurai spin) is our cover star, as depicted by the marvelous Mal Earl.

32 pages of comic strip action can be yours by going to pargoncomic.blogspot.com and clicking the cover to order!

What else is in there? More preview art to follow in the next day or two...

I'm sure you know that Ian Fleming worked in the British Secret Service during World War II.
And that Fleming and Christopher Lee were related. Lee also served in the war in the Special Forces.
Did you know that Jon Pertwee was interviewed by Fleming for a post at one point? (Pertwee served in the Navy)

Imagine that team; Fleming, Lee and Pertwee.
That's like James Bond, Doctor Who and Dracula!

What a team they would make for British Intelligence!
Read the first adventure for this super team up in the brand new issue of PARAGON!

Written by Dirk Van Dom
(from a plot by Dave Candlish)
And illustrated by David Metcalfe- Carr, the Shadow Rats is not to be missed!
