Lou Scannon becomes a Fad Deity!

The latest issue of Eagle Award nominated sci-fi/comedy comic Lou Scannon is now available.

‘Fad Deity’, by Jim Bampfield, Dan Harris and Kris Carter, shows the adventures of a lone office lackey, who (due to bizarre circumstances) comes to worship Lou Scannon as a god. But what will happen when he meets his unwitting hero?

This fifth issue was launched at the 2013 Cardiff Comic Con, and can be ordered from www.louscannon.co.uk for £3 plus postage. In addition to a full self-contained 22 page story, there’s an additional six pages of fact files, making of’s, letters pages and a back up strip.
