Having met both Jim and Shark in person I genuinely believe they'd be great company in a pub for many a night.

My thoughts on starting this were simply to share what folk were getting up to at the weekend. Simple, and part of the efforts on my part to increase the general activity on the board.


After moving my youngest to Uni last weekend I'm going to be spending Saturday making comics (Deadline for Zarjaz & Something Wicked is looming) as well as taking Sunday to go out for the day with Mrs Bolt for a nice walk in the Derbyshire Dales along with our dogs before enjoying a pub meal.

So I'll be here swapping inanities for some time tomorrow but on Sunday not so much.

Damnation Station - A very worthy experiment by TMO and Al Ewing to have a strip that would be passed around multiple artists. Looking forward to reading this and a very good idea these days to play up the Al Ewing connection.

However - he does have some form of 'name' draw for the US readers, similarly to Mike Allred & George Perez, both of whom have delivered covers for TMO in recent years.

Hawk - only natural to be a bit flat after the heightened states of anticipation lately.

Just look back at all you have sorted lately and wonder at how awesome you really are (That's how I get through the day!)

Spent all day yesterday prepping and delivering nano-bolt to Universtiy.

Now at home again and wondering where the years went.

Other Reviews / Comic Zine - 2000 AD special
« on: 13 September, 2019, 07:52:51 am »

Coverby Ed Doyle - shockingly bad photo by me.

Declaration of interest - we here at team Zarjaz / Dogbreath were interviewed for this.

Okay - that's out of the way, time for a rambling review.

Comic Zine - 2000 AD 1977 - 2019. 

I knew this was about as I'd heard it was being produced, but it wasn't till I was corresponding with Ed Doyle that I was prompted to pick a copy up. 

You can get it from: https://getmycomics.com/ComicScene scroll down to find it.

I was very pleasantly surprised to see that this is a full colour title - with a decent spread of colour pages throughout. The content is all interviews and features, with illustrations spread throughout from a variety of artists. Lyndon Webb does some standout work and luckily he has his signature on several of his pieces as they aren't directly credited. There are several pieces in the book that I have no idea who drew, which is a picky point - but a valid one. The artists would like recognition.

The zine starts with a really nice interview with John Wagner and Dan Cornwell that took place at Lawless this year, followed by chats with Steve Macmanus, Ian Gibson and John Higgins. Then there is a piece about the 1977 - 2000 AD facebook group and a kickstarter they are planning for next year before Alan Holloway closes the zine with an article on 2000 AD fanzines that we took part in.

Niggles - I thought the lack of credits for the artists on the various illustrations was accidental but there is a page of strip written by Baden James Mellonie and illustrated by Steven Austin that has had its credits removed. An odd decision, as this is just the first page of a three page strip I lettered so is just left floating there with no frame of reference. 

It would have been nice for the fanzines to have gotten a 'where you can buy' line or two. I know that both us here and the chaps over at Sector 13 would appreciate the potential custom, especially as we were not provided even a digital copy of the book.

Overall I heartily recommend getting a copy of this - it's a really nice read, and if the team put together another I'll be keen to see where they go!

I do like Dan's work. He's got a lovely 'weight' to his inks.
