The PARAGON annual
« on: 08 December, 2018, 06:43:26 pm »
I've long thought I should collect the Battle Ganesh story from PARAGON - and here it is!

This year's awesome annual is 68 pages of fantastic stories from the brilliant anthology of small press contributors of this parish.

Contents include;
the sci-fi take on the tale of the elephant headed Hindu God in Battle Ganesh, by The Emperor and the late, great Stephen Prestwood.




Dinosaurs in Africa in a Bulldog tale from the archives, written as always, by Jason Cobley



Rupert the Bear style rhyming antics from L'il Ganesh, by Dave Candlish and Jim Cameron



An all new Spencer Nero adventure, written by our own Greg Meldrum and Scott Twells.



Imagine if Dudley Watkins (creator of The Broons and Lord Snooty, amongst others) drew for the small press? Larks abound in Oor Ganesh by Dave Candlish



And more!


If you miss a decent Christmas annual like you used to get as a kid then this is the comic for you!
68 pages, A4 in size, perfect bound. £5.95 includes P&P.
Get yours from www.paragoncomic.blogspot.co.uk

And for the true connoisseur a hardback edition is available from http://www.lulu.com/shop/paragon-comic/paragon-annual-2018/hardcover/product-23901265.html
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!

Bleedin’ predictive text - that should obviously read treat yourself!

Anyhoo, they should be dropping on doormats anytime now so I’d love to hear what you think of it 😃

Paragon annual 2019 has landed safe and sound :)
Well worth getting a copy for the front/rear cover colours and the lettering on the Spencer Nero strip alone.

PS Maybe I should mention that I coloured the covers and lettered Spencer Nero  :D

That back cover is lush but Davey- you should give the logo more room to breathe at the top. :)
