News / The Dark Judges in NEW SCIENTIST- This week
« on: 20 December, 2017, 04:17:06 pm »

Link to the 2000 AD website news item.

Not a hoax, not a dream, not an imaginary story. I'll be stopping by the newsie tomorrow to look for this!

News / Durham Red- Born Bad!
« on: 20 December, 2017, 09:37:52 am »
As seen on Down The Tubes, Durham Red is back from Alec Worley & Ben Willsher.

And it looks to me like this is covering the time period when the Doghouse is shut- so further removing the Strontium Dogs stories from current canon. It may also be an indicator as to whether Red will be back in the main S/D strip- unlikely...

Set to start in prog 2073.

Events / Small Press Day 2017
« on: 07 July, 2017, 01:16:32 pm »

Tomorrow is small press day 2017!

Visit comic shops all over the country to pick up quality comics from the very folk that create them!

Site: Small Press Day!

There are quite a few folk here who got started in small press, from the mighty PJ Holden and Michael Carroll right on through to newcomer Dan Cornwell so you never know who is going to be providing the comics you are reading.

I'll be part of the fun at Nostalgia & Comics in Brum, but there are many more events all up and down the country!

I'll specifically be pimping FutureQuake 2017 but will also have copies of some of the other, excellent books we produce.

Hopefully I'll see a few of you there!

Creative Common / FutureQuake Help wanted
« on: 24 April, 2017, 02:10:00 pm »
Hi, I've got a seven page strip for FutureQuake that is all drawn, but I'd like to see the pages with grayscale on.

If there is anyone out there who would be interested in doing this, please get in touch. I 'could' do it myself, but I would prefer someone with actual talent...

As usual for FQP, we cannot afford to actually pay, but a contributor pdf of the entire comic will be your reward- alongside my respect and gratitude.

You can get me with a PM here or reply and I'll PM you.


Events / 40th Birthday party- Boarders & Lurkers?
« on: 06 February, 2017, 03:07:28 pm »
As I'm sure almost no-one here has missed, there is going to be a little get together for Tharg and his minions this weekend. I'm more than ridiculously excited- frankly I've looked forward to this more than anything in the last year.

So as not to derail the main thread- I'm starting this one to see how many of us who frequent this place are going to be there.

Back in the day we managed to get a pretty awesome board photo at one of the Oxford Dreddcons, and more recently there was a sizeable group up at Hi-Ex, but this is potentially the greatest gathering of the Hive- ever.

So, who is coming?

I'm not just after current boarders- I'm also very interested to see if we can tempt any old boarders who may now just lurk to de-cloak and say hi.

So, I'll start.

Bolt-01 & Nano-Bolt (She hates that name so please use it all day :))

Who else?

Books & Comics / The 13th Stone- Comicstrip
« on: 29 October, 2016, 01:58:48 pm »

It's become something of a Halloween tradition for Bryan Coyle and Lee Robson to do a short comic, but this year (with the help of Bolt-01), we've gone one better and done a full blown 22 page one-shot, called The 13th Stone.

"Taking a job in the small English village of Argleton, archaeologist Joy Lambton finds herself wiling away her spare time investigating the ancient stones that stand on the outskirts and trying to solve one particular mystery that surrounds them: why the few sources she can find claim there are only eleven stones, when there are clearly twelve.

But when she learns of a thirteenth stone, Joy begins to uncover the strange and sinister connection they have to the village..."

You can find more about the comic (including links where you can buy it) here: Imaginary Stories

Books & Comics / The Class Of '79- Archive edition.
« on: 26 October, 2016, 08:20:53 pm »
Greetings Squaxx.

Following on from the untimely passing earlier this year of Stewart, we at Zarjaz were asked about putting out a Co'79 special. While this was a really good idea, and something we would have really enjoyed, Tharg did it better by putting Harry Heston in the Meg.

However, what we 'are' doing is beginning work on a 'Archive edition' of both classic 'zines.

What I've done is get a set of scans from my print copies, and I'm using those as a basis for what amounts to rebuilding them. Where possible I'm matching fonts, but I'm also building what I believe the cadets would have if they were putting the work out now.

I've had permission from as many folks who worked on '79 as I can so all being well in the mid-future the Class Of '79- Archive edition will be available to download, for free, for all.

This is a pretty sizeable job, as you can imagine, so I'm asking for some help.

First, can someone help me with a 'clean' scan of:

and are there any squaxx oout there who want to transcribe a few articles for me? There are some astounding articles in these pages, and I'd love to be able to present them in a 'perfect' form once again.

If you are able to help, then please get in touch by PM.

Thanks all.

The time has come for Zarjaz, Dogbreath, FutureQuake & Something Wicked to all sit together.

Over the last ten years we have brought you fine Squaxx some of the finest talents in the small press and some of our creators have gone on to work for Tharg himself.

Kicking off this new thread is the cover reveal to the new Zarjaz, by none other than Nigel Dobbyn.

Presenting the Zarjaz summer special 2016, available July 1st, this A4 sized special is a 48 page celebration of all the house of Tharg can offer.

Over the next few days I'll post details of the contents to further whet your appetite!

Don't forget about The Daily Zarjaz either. Free daily strips featuring the cast of 2000 AD.

Books & Comics / BOMB SCARES!
« on: 02 October, 2015, 03:51:56 pm »

News item from Down The Tubes- covering this upcoming release from the good folks at Time Bomb comics.

Reason for posting? Well, other than the cover above being by Richard Elson & Dave Kendall, the book contains (from my involvement) some cracking creators, including at least two boarders.

And on a personal note- the pages in the news item all feature my lettering- woot!

O, mighty hive mind- repository of all knowledge...

Thanks in advance.
