Sector 13 Issue 5 - Cover SNIP

2000AD-inspired zine Sector 13 Issue 5 to get Enniskillen Comic Fest Launch

Sector 13 Issue 5 - CoverThe fifth issue of the 2000AD-inspired zine Sector 13, offering a great mix of strips, will get its launch at Enniskillen Comic Fest this weekend. At over 40 pages, this is the biggest issue of the anthology not-for-profit zine yet, offering a  mixture of colour and black and white strips.

Produced by the Sector House 13 fan group based in Belfast with the aim of encouraging and supporting new writers and artists, the zine is created with the assistance of the cosplayers, artists and writers from within the group and further afield.

While the editor is Peter Duncan, he considers the title is very much a team effort, with an editorial team built around a core group including Peter, Laurence McKenna and Simon McKnight.

This issue comes with a cover featuring Cosplayer Ella McKnight in a photograph enhanced by 2000AD cover artist Adam Brown. The use of cosplayers on the cover and in the opening story in each issue of Sector 13 continues this time round but is taken a little further.

The title’s ongoing photostory, “When I Lost Control” is continued in two further tales, “Interlude” painted by Donna Anita Black and “The Long Walk” with art by Scott Twells, alongside six other stories set in the worlds of 2000 AD
