FutureQuake, issue #5 will be launched at the November Brighton Comic

Expo. Featuring the best combination of New Talent and professional

creators.  Issue #5 features an introduction by Harry (The Stainless

Steel Rat) Harrison and a cover by Charlie (The Walking Dead) Adlard,

and is bursting at the seams with creative talent...now at the new

We are also very proud and excited to announce a new delivery, also to

be launched at Brighton Comic Expo...MangaQuake!



Featuring five all new strips and a full colour cover from some

amazing new talents. One of these is Japanese artist Michiru Morikawa,

of whom John McCrea has said 'She's going to be a superstar'. With a

forward by Jonathan Clements, co-author of The Anime Encyclopaedia,

this 56-page A5 comic will retail at an amazingly low price of ?2.50.

Who's in Futurequake, apart from the big names?  Anyone from this board?

: WoD 30 September, 2005, 06:43:51 PM
Yes..quite a few...I'll list some of them later...

I'm not. Didn't make the grade this time. THAT is how good the art is.

And I had to get them to start an all new title to try and get a script drawn!
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Byron Virgo 30 September, 2005, 08:08:56 PM
Jesus, way to kill the publicity, Rich!

Well, in FQ #5 you see strips the likes of:

-Dial H for Huitzipocholi by Al Ewing and Mike Molchester

-Domestic Bliss by Arthur Wyatt and Simon Penter

-Underground Workers by Martin Gooch and Vicky Stonebridge

And probably some other stuff too - what do I look like, Marvo the Memory Man?

I thought Harry Harrison was dead.  Tsch.
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: WoD 30 September, 2005, 08:32:14 PM
No, don't worry...we're not 'channeling' him like the guy on X-Factor with John Lennon on his cassette player...
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Byron Virgo 30 September, 2005, 08:36:15 PM
Less Lennon, more sellin'!
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Richmond Clements 30 September, 2005, 11:53:40 PM
Harry ain't dead!

And if you don't believe me, then have a quick jaunt over to Dublin on the 15-16th October


Oh, and buy Futurequake and Mangaquake! They're blimmin great.

Am I in FutureQuake?

I'm afraid not!

You're pending...
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: James 01 October, 2005, 09:26:31 PM
My stuff's gonna be in there.

...isn't it?
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Generally Contrary 01 October, 2005, 09:48:14 PM
Pending...?  Oh, the injustice.  My voice will not be silenced by your New LabourSpeak euphamism for rejection.

"NONSENSE!"

: paulvonscott 01 October, 2005, 09:56:17 PM
I was pending on issue 4.  It still hurts.

Try ringing the Pending helpine, if you need to talk to someone about it.  They advised me to buy a reet big gun, and low and behold, I'm in Issue 5...

...I hope.

: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Richmond Clements 01 October, 2005, 10:28:04 PM
New Futurequake... new danger..!

I'm happy to say that paul and James are no longer pending, but their strip will appear in all its considerable glory in issue 5!

And i'll have another ready by monday.

Reviews news:

Christine Harper's Fragments is reviewed in the October issue of Comics International.

So is Rapid Fire issue 4, from Underfire Comics. If you haven't seen it, and you like small press stuff, especially Zarjaz, you should probably buy it.

I have been notified that the deadline for reviews submissions for the November issue of Comics International (#190) has been extended to 14th October. That allows me to get in reviews of Rumble #1, Rapid Fire #5 and Action Stations in time to coincide with the Brighton Comic Expo.

Also, there is going to be a special Expo edition of Comics International, with a different kind of reviews section of its own aimed at pointing newcomers in the right direction. Sounds like an awesome responsibility, which I will do my level best to totally abuse*.

*(no, not really...)
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Byron Virgo 04 October, 2005, 05:41:24 AM
Abuse away HoU - what's the point of poewr without a lack of resposibility?

Great news that the Action Stations review will make it in time - I should probably point out that all those letters are genuine!

We'll also have a convention version of the book available, which will have a colour cover and about three extra strips in it.

I've also had a strip 'pending' for FutureQuake for almost a year now, and which still hasn't got an artist and will probably end up in #7 (and I'm one of the bloody editors)!

: Al_Ewing 04 October, 2005, 06:39:31 AM
Yeah, I meant to ask about that one. Or that one. Or one of the other two.

One day futurequake will print one of your stories. And then the world will end.
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Byron Virgo 04 October, 2005, 07:31:01 AM
So the End of the World coincides with #5?

Damn, Molcher was right!
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Carlsborg Expert 05 October, 2005, 02:09:32 AM
Hmm..I should ask if Im pending but I dont know if I dare.

Any artist found for the script that was put together?
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Carlsborg Expert 05 October, 2005, 07:57:38 AM
Someone understand me.

I'm not sure that's in any way humanly possible.

Why aren't the photobucket pictures showing anymore - or is it just me that can't see 'em?

Let me know if they're not back for you odds...

And Carls...soon.....
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Oddboy 06 October, 2005, 05:11:51 PM
Still no... they were fine the other day.

Maybe it's some strange band-width thingummy... what with photobucket being so popular nowadays.

No show at Brighton, but apparently (i may be labouring under the wrong impression here) a place in Futurequake#5.

My dream lives on.

Ps a copy of the convention booklet to be handed over at a future Brum-con would be welcome, Bolt. :)
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Byron Virgo 27 October, 2005, 09:13:20 PM
"apparently (i may be labouring under the wrong impression here) a place in Futurequake#5"

Which strip?
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Dunk! 27 October, 2005, 09:19:18 PM
Erm. Forgotten it's name.

Oh, that's, erm...buggeration...Fortunate Son, right?

So are you 'Mr. Nimmo', then?

Yes.

Well, I wasn't asking you out (Cancer just isn't compatible)...though I do find it disturbing that you have a female icon...

21?! You don't deserve to live...

So...'The Daring Astromen of Jupiter'...?

: Dunk! 27 October, 2005, 09:41:33 PM
Damn! thought i was in there.

21 about(muffled cough) years ago.

Oh is that yours? Working on it at the mo and planning on delivering it digitally on Monday (on CD by Wednesday :)


: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Byron Virgo 27 October, 2005, 09:46:16 PM
I'd admit to it being mine, but it's rubbish, so I won't. To be fair, I wrote it in an hour at work, so at least it was quick.

Glad to hear that it's going to be done on time - Dave said that it wasn't going to get finished, the lying sod!

Really looking forward to this one actually, as the art on Fortunate Son is bloody gorgeous.

"Damn! thought i was in there."

Who says you're not, sugar...?

Tulkas. I'll get you a copy of the booklet for the soon to be arranged Brum Con!

Bolt-01: looking forward to Astromen, as I too quite liked that.
: Re: Brighton Comic Expo - November...
: Dunk! 28 October, 2005, 04:22:56 PM
I look forward to Astromen too.







Now where's that script...

"as I too quite liked that."

That's right, Dave - no need to shower us in praise.

Turns out I'm going to Brighton afterall so I don't mind helping the cause of pimping MQ.

I intend to use my own unique sales pitch of chinning sarcy nay sayers and inserting the glorious comic up their bottom until they decide to buy 3 copies and a subscription.

Well, I did'nt actually mean you lot... Hell you lot are the people we have as a shinig example of not being fat faboys.

I'm talking the anal retentive types, obssessive people, dodgy costume wearers, scojo etc... You know the type. Got no patience for those types, spoils a great convention.

Heh, sorry Smurf, just going for the obvious joke.

I quite like the costume wearers, they make me feel less geeky (Vape 'em VC!)
