Jason Cobley’s Bulldog set to return in Paragon

Captain Winston Bulldog arrives in Paragon Comic

30 years after creating the iconic small press character, comics writer and author Jason Cobley is bringing Captain Winston Bulldog back to print in the long-running indie anthology Paragon comic, the brainchild of artist Davey Candish.

The tales of anthropomorphic airborne adventurer Captain Winston and his crew, stories set in a brave new Britain of sentient animals and vegetables, impossibly huge air-battleships and transforming mecha biplanes, have featured in many British independent comics down the years and he’s been drawn by many fantastic artists including Neill Cameron and Warwick Johnson Cadwell.

“With Jikan, Spencer Nero, the upcoming Major taking the slot vacated by Icarus (which ends in #14), forthcoming stories such as a murder mystery set in the 18th century Weimar and 50s retro British X-files in Tommy Rocket and now Bulldog, we have a line up to die for!” enthuses Davey for his great title.

“I have to admit to being extremely excited by this,” says Davey. “Jason published BAM! (Bulldog Adventure Magazine) and it was this that got me interested in the idea of publishing my own comic, so to have his character added to the contents of Paragon is huge for me.
