Judge Pigg needs to be an ongoing series. Conventions would fill up with bacon themed cosplayers.

The Judge Pigg strip is- in my opinion- a work of bacon flavoured genius.

Hey there Squaxx! orders received so far have all been dispatched. Of course, when they will get to you is another matter entirely. I do not envy the posties in the snow...

Cheers

Got mine today. All the stories and artwork are on top form, fantastic stuff. Judge Pig put a smile on my face, "HI-Ex...and bacon!" is the best line in that story. Zarjaz is getting better and better. Well worth picking an issue up

I've been checking out reviews over night-

First off- The Forbidden Planet Blog where friend of the comic Joe Gordon says some very nice things.

The lads over at ECBT 2000 AD have included a review of Zarjaz #30 in the episode here. (Have to admit I don't know if it is a good review as I just can't get on with listening to podcasts. I've tried- but like radio 4 it just washes over me.)

Over on Down The Tubes, the mightiest of puns greets readers of the promo material.

Our cousins on the emerald isle have posted about the new issue as well. The Sector 13 blog is where to go!

Another review from the ECBT crew- this time it is a more complete look at the book.


If any other reviews appear- and I see 'em, I'll post links here.

As none of the above really reviewed the magazine, I've gone and done it myself

That Edward Whatley Dredd is really nice - like a polished up early Gibson Dredd.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Cheers BCB- though in the interests of transparency it should be noted that you wrote the 'Spare the Rod' strip.

It is nice to get a real review, and BPP- you are spot on. Edward Whatleys art is worth the price of admission alone. It was a total pleasure to see that strip from the pencils up.

I really tried hard to be objective

I'm awaiting my unmarked brown envelope full of fivers...

Oh, and the ECBT crew loved it across the board. As they should.

How about a full review on the next podcast.
