That's three issues of Zarjaz, or both a Zarjaz and a FutureQuake...

Mail order only as well- Folk will be stumping up the £8.50 without even seeing it.

Another here who's just watched all of ALTERED CARBON. Thoroughly enjoyed it but i wonder if those without any knowledge of the book would be confused?

I must admit that I read the book a good while ago so I cannot say as to how much it was adjusted to suit the change to the visual medium (and I've just discovered there are more books so I'll be getting hold of them as and when...) and seeing as there are more books then I reckon its a safe bet we'll see a second season.

Thanks to those who've taken a look, and here is a little midweek reminder.

Really liked the new creator article written by FQP alumnus Karl Stock, featuring FQP alumni Steve Austin & Paul Williams. That alongside everything written by FQP alumnus Rory McConville.

Also liked the mention in Cyber-Matts editorial of the arrival of FQP alumnus Nico Assirelli, too.

I saw this linked on ECBT too, Colin, and you beat me to the linkie. It sounds grand, and to hear from folk who've read other books by the writer sound interested I think I'll be picking this one up.

Dan is coming on leaps and bounds!  I initially had that down as Patrick Goddard at a glance - I'm not misremembering he has another Dredd on the way?

Dan originally thought he'd got a nice clear slate to work on this, but then TMO got in touch- not sure exactly what he's working on, but it will be a pleasure to see him back in the prog.

As Zarjaz 30 is just around the corner being prepared by the awesome legion of print-bots I am now able to share the astoundingly good cover art by the one and only Dan Cornwell.

Dan has been recently upgraded to full-droid and we are very grateful to him for sneaking out of his chains in the command module and providing us with this utterly scrotnig cover.

Zarjaz 30 will be on sale from early March.

James- Yeah, that's dark enough. Great first time.

Loving this run of the comp.

Well, here we go again- FQP towers is once again full to bursting so if I ever want to buy anything more I need to make space.

Over the next few weeks I'll be quietly listing to Ebay some choice items from the collection.

I'll also soon be doing my usual parting with a couple of years worth of progs- for the price of postage.

Here is the link to the Ebay page:

Also- in with each pack for a while will be a handful of free comic book day swag. I'm putting those in both free and gratis while I have them.

As always- any questions ask them here, and thanks for looking.

So what's the solution.All new stories?New editor?
Buy Zarjaz and DogBreath instead!

Ah, thanks Sharky!

These days we have trouble shifting even the miniscule print run we do for these books, despite the astounding quality and value for money (48 pages for £3.00, come on!) but I really appreciate the sentiment.

I might be wrong here, and if I am then apologies, but the whole 'If I didn't write it, it didn't happen' situation is not an official stance from Tharg, more of a note from John as to his feelings regarding the strip.

Yes, it can be annoying when stories written by other writers don't get referenced (What 'did' happen to the Kazan clone?) but this isn't a new thing. Rennie Dredd was different to Wagner Dredd, Ewing Dredd is different to Carroll Dredd. The key here is to remember that any change we see is really only illusory. Dredd appears to get older and grumpier, but he's been doing that for 25 years or so now.

Personally I remember the late 90's as a time when I would leave the prog at the newsies for a month or so to then read in a chunk. Whereas I still look for the postie every Saturday morning so I can get my hands on the latest prog.

Yoinks! I scored a decent chunk of voucher from WHSmith so decided to splurge on some Ebooks.

BAH! Didn't realise that the KOBO reader beloved of WHSmith was unable to be used on a kindle. Best I can manage so far is reading on my laptop!
