It's nice to see MikeD back in action. Think the last time I saw his work was back in Omnivistascope.

Surprised no-one here has mentioned that two more of the artists for Spacewarp are both forum members - Bruno Stahl and James Newell have both frequented this board for many years and I know James in particular has worked hard to get here. Congrats to them both.

<pimp>And of course they've both done work for me over at FQP - so remember folk - if you want to see who's going to be drawing the comics of tomorrow, check out FQP Today!</pimp>

The 11 year old in me is very exited by the looks of this.

(Though the DC Lawyer in me is probably eyeing up Hellbreaker and thinking ... hang on ...)

Spacewarp is aimed at a mainstream audience, age group 14 – 40, with female and male heroes from a wide range of backgrounds and ethnicities without falling into the ‘woke’ trap.
That’s… a really weird line. It’ll be interesting if the publication has pivoted from the original stance, which was very much “a comic about men”, being heavily influenced by “boys comics” from the 1970s. But quite what “the ‘woke’ trap” means, I have no idea.

"We will still offend some people, but they are wrong."

I have to admit, though, I still like the look of it.

Yes, why 40? I don’t think my tastes suddenly changed when I hit 41 (or even now 5 years later). There was me kind of interested in this, but alas I’m a few years too old now.  :D

Mind you 14 is an odd starting age too.
