Something for the Weekend: British Comic Shop Releases (26th August 2015)

2000AD Prog 1945

Here’s  this week’s list of comics on sale now in comic shops across the UK. As usual, our list highlights the work of British creators and publishers.

Comic artist and writer Mike Collins picked up on this regular feature’s tweaked title last week by the way, and tells me he regularly takes comics in to  local barbers. Come on, folks – join the campaign to turn the population of Britain back to comic reading…

It’s another cracking week for new comics, with 2000AD offering a stomping Prog just before the stunning-looking “Dreams of Deadworld” starts next issue (previewed here). The fine team on Judge Dredd continue to pull out all the stops as “Enceladus: Old Life” continues and along with “Grey Area” the art, combined with great scripts on this Prog is simply knock out.

Doctor Who: Four Doctors #3 Main

Over at Titan, their Doctor Who: Four Doctors mini-series reaches its mid point as the Doctor’s three most recent incarnations are drawn into a diabolical trap set by an unseen enemy that involves a continuity bomb and the chance for Neil Edwards to again burn your eyeballs with his stunning art. Paul Cornell also has chance for some engaging character moments between Doctors and companions as they continue to try and work together against a common foe. Great stuff.

Also at Titan is Issue 4 of Surface Tension, the work of the amazingly talented Jay Gunn (interviewed here), who has created a project that has deservedly attracted a lot of attention and now reaches its penultimate issue. Visually and in concept this tale, a modern combination of Quatermass and John Wyndham’s cautionary tales, hasn’t missed a step, in my view, and continues to impress. If you’ve missed it, then go grab digital back issues, now.

Also on sale in comic shops this week is the Fanfare collection of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival’s 24 Hour Marathon comic (reviewed here), along with a couple of great-looking books springing from their partnership with Borderline Press. Well worth a look.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detetive Agency #3

On the US side, don’t miss Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detetive Agency #3 from IDW publishing by Chris Ryall, with art from Ilias Kyriazis. The reborn Egyptians keep walking, the Copycat Killers keep killing, and the museum gala where these and other seemingly random events will converge looms large!

Plus, check out details below on the latest Thief of Thieves by Andy Diggle from Image and Swords Of Sorrow Pantha Jane Porter Special, written by 2000AD’s Emma Beeby.

PRVIEWS #324This week also sees the release of Diamond’s PREVIEWS catalogue #324, featuring items scheduled to ship in November 2015 and beyond.

City of Crocodiles

City of Crocodiles
Writer, Artist and Cover Artist: Knut Larsson

A post-apocalyptic surreal fantasy by one of Sweden’s brightest talents. A mystic and mythical tale of one man’s search for something he wasn’t aware he needed. In a flooded city, between the houses, crocodiles swim. The crocodile hunter sells his catch to the butcher; his payment is gas and booze. They sit and play games of Croco-chess and drink glasses of crocodile wine. At home, crocodile soup simmers on the stove while the hunter sleeps in his armchair. At dawn he gets a strange catch in his nets. This wordless drama draws you in and keeps hold of you, protecting you from the cold and slimy embrace of this world of crocodiles.

In direct defiance of their new guardians the children delve into the secrets of an old haunted house nearby. Sometimes adult warnings are given with good reason.

24 By 7 Hard Cover
Writer/Artist: Various & Various (Fanfare)

At 3pm on Thursday, October 16, 2014 in the small market town of Kendal in England, 7 artists entered a room and started to draw. By 9pm the following day 7 comic books were being collected from the printer to form part of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival. The artists worked around the clock on coffee and smiles to produce “a spread of seven comics as diverse as they are witty as they are beautiful to behold.” From witches to scribbles, paperclips to salty tales, hand-me-downs to chance encounters and doomed love, all were created in 24 hours by quality artists (in order of appearance) Sarah McIntyre, Joe Decie, Kristyna Baczynski, Fumio Obata, Jack Teagle, Warwick Johnson-Cadwell and finally curator and editor Dan Berry.

Ancient Egyptian demon hunter and shape shifter, Pantha, is thrown across a Rift into the early twentieth century London, straight into the path of Jane Porter, American explorer, aviatrix and new wife to Tarzan. Pantha hasn’t come alone, however, as London is plunged into chaos by the appearance of a Great Pyramid in the sky… and what it contains. Up against gods, monsters, Purgatori, and each other, the pair need all the help that ancient magic and modern aviation can supply to stop London from turning into a new hell on earth. Writer Emma Beeby (Judge Dredd, Doctor Who) and artist Rod Rodolfo (Battlestar Galactica, John Carter: Warlord of Mars) reimagine these two characters – complete with all new costumes – in this turn-of-the-century pulp-action one-shot adventure.
