On sale Thursday 21st November, ComicScene Issue 10 features seven new comic strips behind a Judge Dredd cover by John Charles, including four strips in a free 24 page pull out Corker! comic.
The idea is comic fans can pull out the comic and share with friends, sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren or leave at a library, school, community centre or public space to encourage comic reading every month (with no plastic toys attached!).
The strips will be available for the first time to a newsstand audience with ComicScene now distributed in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada and the United States.
“This is a great jumping on point for anyone with an interest in comics and comic reading,” says Publisher Tony Foster. “It’s a really exciting development to bring more comics to the newsstands as well as promote the great work being produced out there.”
Strips include “Rok of the Reds“, where aliens meet football, by Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner, Alan Grant and Dan Cornwell; Lady Flintlock Book 2, for fans of Dick Turpin and Gentleman Jack, by Steve Tanner, Anthony Summey and Bolt-01; “Magatomic Battle Rabbit” by Stu Perrins, Israel Huretas, Aaron Rackley and Dan Rushton; “Slash Moron” by some of the team behind the “Wallace and Gromit” newspaper strips, Bambos Georgiou, the late James Hansen and John Burns; “Gallant and Amos“, a Knight and a Dragon adventures in a medieval world, by Rob Barnes; “Whackoman!”, an off beat superhero antics by Marc Jackson; and Captain Cosmic Book 2, in which the galactic guardians face their most dangerous adversary yet, by Andy W Clift.
