Books & Comics / The Return of SENTINEL
« on: 25 July, 2022, 01:17:56 PM »
It's been a while, but sentinel will return this year with the twelfth issue - VALHALLASAUR

Three Viking ships set off for Iceland (to their colonies) but a terrible storm means that only one survives, blown far off course and landing on a mysterious island. On that island something hunts them...

As accurate as we could make it on the Viking side, it's an action packed tale that goes one step further than the reader will expect, a sixty four page complete story.

Written by Alan Holloway with art and cover by Ed Doyle, both veterans of Zarjaz, Dogbreath, The 77, Sector 13, Comicscene and more.

alternative cover (in progress below) by Andy Lambert.

SENTINEL has had a slow down recently due to artists finding the time to do the issues, but there are currently over ten in various stages of production, plus plans for a plus size compilation.

There may be imitators, but no one does it quite like SENTINEL

This is all going well, but we are happy to take on additional creators.

Usually a fan of these, but this one was poor

Dredd was okay, but zero cleverness just a bog standard Dredd story

Lowborn High was so Harry Potter rip off it hurt.

The Future Shock was pretty good

Jak and Dexter, I mean Scooter and Jinx was so slow and non fun, yet still better than Peatty's other strip. Can we just send him back to AMerican comic please, as he's not very good at these.

Pandora Perfect was fun, but needed the central premise that Pandora is stupid, and she isn't.

Interest in the project is high, and we will have contributions from indie creators and professionals like Steven Austin, Ian Richardson, Rob Williams, Dan Cornwell and Boo Cook. Hopefully John Wagner, too.

We have at least seven months to get scripts etc in shape, so are happy to read submissions as you have them.

Cheers.

Just over a year ago, the indie comics community lost a major player in Dave Evans, known as Bolt 01.

An editor, artist, letterer and more, Dave was responsible for editing many years of Zarjaz, Dogbreath and Futurequake magazines, as well as working on many, many more.

We felt he should be remembered by the community he dedicated so much time to, and what better way than a comic strip collection.

Although the format will be A4, we don't know how many pages etc as first we need comic creators to come forward and offer their services, with priority to those who worked with Dave.

There's no payment, with any profit going to a mental health charity nominated by his family, who support us 100 per cent in this.

If you're interested, please contact us with any questions and we'll get things moving. We're looking for strips of up to five pages, with original content, plus likely some pin up type pages.

Hopefully we can publish in May 2023.

Sorry to waffle - let's do it, and do him proud.

Harsh, Dredd... harsh.

Is Chris Wildgoose anything to do with Dylan Teague? I ask because the name "Teague" is the only one written on a block.

The Future Shock looked great, and the story was good, I'm just confused as to why that mouse has lived for so long, as it's not explained.

Books & Comics / Re: Space Bastards Vol 2 on Kickstarter

I've kept up with Space Bastards with the comic releases, and unfortunately it really dropped a bollock story-wise, turning into a comic I read because I thought I should rather than because I enjoyed it.

Volume one is excellent, I'll not be getting any more.

Dark Matter are a five strong team of mercenaries, each with a unique psychic ability. After a successful job rescuing "Mr Fluffles", they've been hired by the Narata Corporation to jump into a war zone and liberate some important information.

Action packed with some amazing set pieces, Dark Matter is a fun ride from start to finish. The script is full of great dialogue, backed up by Ian Beadles never less than dynamic black and white art

Issue 11 of Sentinel runs until Saturday, and is backable from £2, with all back issues available on the campaign in digital form. Each is a complete story, so no need to get older issues except for the pleasure of reading them.
