Books & Comics / Re: Shift Comic - new UK anthology
« on: 07 October, 2020, 12:55:22 PM »
ComicScene did run strips (Rok of the Reds, Captain Cosmic, Lady Flintlock, Milford Green. Whackoman! to name a few) but was mainly features.  We have eight pages in Shift! which mainly cover new and indie comics.
People seem to want strips and retro articles separate, which is why we are launching the History of Comics Books.  Interviews include John Wagner on anything but Dredd and Ian Gibson on Halo Jones.  https://comicscene.org/subscribe-to-the-history-of-comics/
We have also launched the 116 page hardback Annual for Christmas which you can order in print or digital now - the cover inspiration from a certain publication you may know! https://comicscene.org/2020/09/30/buy-your-comicscene-annual-here-now-even-bigger-at-116-pages/

The first issue of Shift will be 108 pages with a ComicScene section in it.  It’s published by Comic Toolbox.
It will be on sale in WHSmith, Martin/McColls and Easons and is likely to be in Barnes and Noble in US, Indigo/Chapters in Canada and Australia.  You will be able to order it at your local store as well. 
You can get the new ‘History of Comics’ Partwork (first 4 volumes covering 1984, 1977, 1950 & 1986) and Shift together for less than the cover price at https://comicscene.org/subscribe-to-the-history-of-comics/ or at https://getmycomics.com/Release/Indie
ComicScene also doing a hardback annual this year too https://comicscene.org/2020/09/30/buy-your-comicscene-annual-here-now-even-bigger-at-116-pages/
The current issue of ComicScene Magazine (featuring Dan Dare in 2000AD) will be the last and you can get it in WHSmith and McColls now with more info about Shift in it.
With 2000AD and Megazine doing well and these titles launching in October/November things are looking a little healthier for comics.  Hope that helps.

Books & Comics / ComicScene Sale
« on: 03 July, 2019, 11:10:21 AM »
ComicScene has a half price summer sale on - you can get digital back issues for £1.50 and print issues for £3.
Catch up with ComicScene, complete your collection and subscribe!  It's a great time to jump on board, with the current issue 5 (the Summer Special!)
For a small investment you are helping us continue the magazine and spread the word to other dedicated comic fans and potential new comic readers. 
Feedback from our newsstand readers is they are discovering a world of comics they thought didn't exist anymore, which is really positive, and experimenting not only with the 2000AD and 'nostalgia' market but some new comics and graphic novels too.
Your investment also helps us get the magazines into libraries, guiding them what comics to purchase. We are also working on a pull out comic to be passed on to young kids - leaving the 'adults' the rest of the magazine to read while encouraging the next generation of 2000AD and comic readers!
We hope you can support this work and there is something in the sale for you. As they say, every little helps and thanks.

Books & Comics / ComicScene UK is coming to selected WHSmith in December
« on: 15 November, 2018, 03:43:11 PM »
ComicScene UK is coming to 600 selected WHSmith travel and high street stores in December.  Full details at https://comicsflix.org/2018/11/15/comicscene-uk-to-go-into-whsmith/

This is added to the 250 potential comic stores across the UK via Diamond, those who buy in our store or subscribe via www.comicscene.tictail.com or order through websites such as Forbidden Planet or GetMyComics.com

Taking advantage of this new potential market to promote comics we are renumbering with a pilot issue over Christmas and New Year months (from 19 Dec) and then back to monthly again on 20th February.  It will be all new material.

I'm sure you want to see the magazine succeed as much as we do - so buying back issues, subscribing, trying out our special publications such as the Annual and the Crikey! volumes will really help at www.comicscene.tictail.com - there is some Black Friday deals on there at the moment.  Details of other Black Friday comic deals at https://comicsflix.org/2018/11/14/comicscene-uk-black-friday-deals-available-now/

Or get down to your local comic shop and set up a standing order or add to your pull list - they can order it for you through Diamond.

All help and support greatly appreciated.

Books & Comics / Re: Thrillpower Overload: the missing chapters
« on: 21 August, 2018, 09:04:28 AM »
Thrill Power Overload (very slightly) quoted the AKA Tapes featuring 2000AD, a zine produced in 1983 which exposed a number of 2000AD secrets while they were fresh in the mind.  On ebay it was going for £40+ but it's been reprinted and can be purchased in print or pdf here.  It's a gossip fest!  https://comicscene.tictail.com/
