New Comics On Sale This Week in the UK – Look, Just Go And Buy Surface Tension, OK?

Surface Tension Collection Cover

Yes, yes, I know there are a huge number of great comics out there, again, this week, many the work of top British comic creators (including Red Thorn, 2000AD and  Judge Dredd Megazine – and what a great start to “Realm of the Damned” in that from Alec Worley and Pye Parr).

But my top recommendation this week is the Surface Tension collection from Titan Comics, conceived, written and drawn by Jay Gunn. If you missed the series then here’s your chance to pick up a wonderful collection, featuring remastered art and some bonus extras, including a beautifully-presented print version of the interview we did with Jay when the book launched last year.

A glorious blend of Quatermass, the SF of John Wyndham, melding western action comics adventure with Hayao Miyasaki-inspired imagery, Surface Tension was one of my favourite series of 2015 – and I wasn’t alone in singing its praises.

Alien killers! Mutated sea monsters! Humanity’s last gasp! Months after mysterious corals drew 99 per cent of humanity into the sea, a band of survivors ekes out a hollow existence on a remote British island. When two people are cast up on the beach, completely blue, but very much alive, the island is thrown into turmoil. What caused the mass extinction event? How did these two return from the deep, when billions died? Most importantly, what is the coral, and what does it want with the Earth?

What more do I need to tell you? Was the headline to this week’s listing not enough of a hint? Go. Now. Buy It!

In fact, if you’re heading to London Super Comic Con, which is wall to wall, floor to ceiling packed with great comics guests – buy it there. Jay is signing on Sunday on the Titan Comics stand.

UK Comics – Newsagents Spotlight

Commando 4890As usual, don’t forget that despite some British publishers lack of faith in full-blown cover to cover comic strip action and humour, there are still comics on sale in newsagents that still delight in bringing you such subversive delights, including The Beano, Commando (latest release intel here), Judge Dredd Megazine, Panini’s superhero titles, Titan Comics superhero titles and VIZ, with great strips also featuring in titles such as Doctor Who MagazineDoctor Who Adventures, Titan’s Doctor Who Comic (collecting their strips from the US format titles) MegaTales from the TARDISTOXIC and many others.

Plus, the wonderful Phoenix Comic is now on sale in many (but not all) Waitrose supermarkets and – at last, selected high street WH Smiths stores – and some comic shops (stockist list here) as well as available on subscription.

Don’t forget Hachette, the British publisher of titles such as Doctor Who: The Complete History and Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection and launched How To Draw The Marvel Way last month, available in all good newsagents.

The part work – evocative of long-established comic creation guides such as How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, still a handy guide to drawing action comics in my view,  offers a step by step guide on how to learn to draw like the greats of comic book illustration. More about this new title here

Note that you may now have to subscribe if you want to continue buying it as Part Works are not distributed in newsagents after their first few issues.
