The Best of the Season to all our Readers!

Unlike the talented comic artists whose work we promote here, I can’t draw for toffee, so I hope you don’t mind this adaptation of a piece of art by the great pulp magazine artist Virgil Finlay.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – although we’ll probably be posting more stories between now and the start of 2012!

With the launch of The Phoenix in January, 2000AD‘s 35th Birthday in February and the continuing strength of the UK indie press, it’s not all doom and gloom out there, no matter what the mainstream media would have us believe.

Our thanks to everyone who sent us stories – publishers, individual creators and others – and the very best of luck in your comic endeavours next year.
