Interesting - Spacewarp has teamed up with Shift (such a great comic check it out) to produce a newstand edition.

So Major Rakhana has a modest bra cup size, eh?
what?

Try reading her name in an Australian accent.

I dunno lads, I may have to completely re-evaluate everything I thought I knew about the Bazooka Jules comic too.
oh dear, i guess it is aimed at 13 year old boys?

Googled Bazooka Jules and yeah, that's not the sort of comic that does the perception of comic readers any favours.
If that's true about Major Rakhana - what a disappointment. I enjoyed Brawler, but that's dire.
You're a dark horse, Boots.

Bazooka Jules was originally published in 2001 when That Sort Of Thing was just fine. Lad culture still riding high. As I recall "Jules" was Googe's partner's name? To me she's a mix of Tank Girl, Sailor Moon & the "Good Girl" pinup.

Not sure it was ever really fine. But, hey: puns. In 2021, though, it’s pathetic and icky. Very disappointing from a Shift publication.

Just to clarify; I never genuinely suggested that it's intended to be read as "Major Rack on her", t'was just that my own puerile mind jumped to that mildly amusing conclusion.

Will keep the innuendo commentaries strictly alluding to demonic dildos for the remainder of '21.

Surely "Major Rakhana"/ "Major Arcana" as in the tarot?

Pat has been interviewed on John Siuntres’ WordBalloon podcast. Not listened yet but link is here

The Dean Of British Sci-Fi has started SpaceWarp an incredible Sci-Fi Anthology . WE discuss the features within, and talk about the current British comics scene along with looking back at his 2000AD comics, a healthy look at the twisted "mean girls" history of Girls British comics , plus Pat teases some new projects comic this fall.

If you get the new "pocket money" version via the Shift website or "get my comics" site it will come with a free print of the new cover for £4.99 +P&P
