A reminder for folks that the new Zarjaz will be heading to the post office tomorrow for the first delivery run. don't miss out on being among the first to get your hands on the finest fanzine you can find.

Zarjaz no 28 has landed safe and sound in Bonnybridge :) that's tonight's comic at bedtime sorted.
Kudos all who have contributed and especially to Bolt :)

surprised you haven't been shamelessly pimping this sidebar to COMIOC HEROES' coverage of the 2000ad 40th:

You're welcome Huff.

Let us know what you think of the comics- we've had a very muted response so far.

got another pack going out today, including some older FutureQuake issues- not many left and all available at bargain prices!

Got my copy - really enjoyed the Fiends of the Eastern Front tale!

And thanks for the superb Mongrol sketch, Bolt :D!

That sidebar is nice, though I feel a little weird about it implying FutureQuake predates Zarjaz...

Still need to order my copy of this latest issue.
Is it me or has the response been smaller to this fine publication this time round?
If something like Zarjaz can't hit the buttons of the local comic reading public here abouts , it doesn't bode well for other small press publications like my Paragon! 😕
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

You aren't wrong Davey- the reaction to the latest issue is a bit baffling. It is a strong issue with a solid lead strip and a corking cover.

However, you just cannot predict what will catch a Squaxx' attention. Other issues with a similar low sales reaction are 23 (Mark Harrison Anderson cover) and 14 (Devlin Waugh cover by Colin MacNeil) but plenty of other issues are selling out with 24 (Dredd by Mike Collins) being the latest to go.

The cold reception is a little vexing when you put 5 years of very limited free time into drawing the lead strip.
