Most people assumed it hadn't been released. It appears they were wrong.

(...and no, it's not the Melbourne House one...)

More details and links to download the thing HERE.

You'll need a spectrum emulator.

Books & Comics / Moose Kid Comics

Nothing about this on here yet? Okay, I'll mention it...

Moose Kid Comics. A free, 36 page, all ages comic, developed by Jamie Smart and featuring work by loads of folk including that bloke who drew Sweeny Toddler, (drawing an evil baby), that bloke who writes Tank Girl, (writing a kid-friendly Tank Girl), and other stuff that's worth a gawp at. Very nice indeed.

I'm currently in the middle of putting together the latest edition of the Temple APA digital comic thing, (which is a showcase for writers and artists active in the UK comics scene), and I've come to the realization that there's a distinct lack of pages in this issue. It could definitely do with a bit more bulk.

So, has anybody got any random bits and pieces lying around that they'd like to contribute?

It can be finished art, old comic strips, unfinished art, sketches, previews of stuff yet to be published... anything even a bit arty or comicy, basically. The only additional thing required from you is an 'intro' page featuring your name and any other info you'd like to share, such as email address, website or whatever. This doesn't need to be anything fancy.

You can get a general idea of the kind of thing we're after by browsing through the previous Temples here...


Email your stuff to  t e m p l e a p a @ o u t l o o k . c o m  (without the spaces, obviously)

Also, if anyone's got any artwork they'd think would look good on the cover, you can send that over as well. I could put something together myself, but I've done the covers for the previous 6 issues and think it's probably about time someone else's scribbles had a chance.

I want to get this out there reasonably quickly, so you only have until next week to contribute (Sunday 6th April).

It's Scream! comic's 30th birthday, so in tribute...

It's for the next issue of Hallowscream.

Small press comic, so not paid work. Written by John Owens. Black and white, A4 dimensions, deadline's October.

Contains Matthew Hopkins, three-headed dogs and demons and stuff in a 17th century setting, (kind of like Defoe).

You don't need to worry about lettering, (unless you fancy doing it yourself as well), 'cos we can get someone else to do that.

The story was originally intended to be in the first issue, and there were attempts to get it into subsequent issues, but we keep misplacing the artists, so the script's just been sitting there since 2006, but it's probably not cursed or anything.


Either contact me on here or at merjeagles @ yahoo.co.uk if you're interested.

Help! / Scotch Corner's causing a Malware warning on Blogger.

If you're getting a warning whenever you go anywhere near your reading list and you're subscribed to Scotch Corner, that seems to be what the problem is.

I've unsubscribed for the moment, (which obviously gets rid of the warning).

Someone should probably let one of the Scotch Corner bloggers know as well, (if they don't read about it here first).

Books & Comics / Egmont Classic Comics on iTunes

From the press release...

Egmont UK’s Classic Comics imprint was created to re-publish the wealth of classic comics in their archive.

Four volumes of Roy the Rovers kicked off our e-comic publishing in June this year and now we are excited to announce the launch of further classics on popular comic series from the 70s and 80s.

A fifth Roy of the Rovers has been made available along with publications from Misty and The Thirteenth Floor.  From Battle Picture Weekly we will be publishing various strips including Johnny Red, Major Eazy and the ground- breaking Charley’s War.  Some of the biggest names in British comics were involved in the creation of these stories, including Pat Mills and John Wagner.

David Riley, Managing Director of Egmont Publishing Group, said: “Roy, Battle, Misty…these are iconic magazines which still have a place in the national consciousness. They deserve to be brought back; their appeal also has the potential to transcend the generation gap and reach an entirely new, younger audience. With the limitless possibilities offered up by digital publishing, there has never been a better time to bring these comics to the fore.”

More information here and some links to the comics here.
