Judge Dredd Anderson Psi Division Trade Paperback

British Comic Shop Releases (25th February 2015) – 2000AD Anniversary Celebrations!

2000AD Prog 1919

 

Our apologies for the delayed publication of this week’s list of both British and US comics on sale this week US (released in comic shops 25th February 2015) – it’s been a busy week on other fronts, not least the start of work on a new digital title I’ve been scripting myself, to be drawn by Marvel artist Giancarlo Caracuzzo. More about that in due course!

Although marred by the recent passing of both Brett Ewins and John Cooper, this week saw a landmark for 2000AD, celebrating (a week late, admittedly) its 38th anniversary. The House of Tharg is of course in sombre mood, having lost Brett, one of its most influential artists and the UK’s top comic creators and John, another who helped secure Judge Dredd’s early success. So it’s with a heavy heart that the 2000AD team have raised a glass to their alien founder, The Mighty Tharg, and like them we’re sure the green-hued one would be lifting a polystyrene cup in remembrance to two of his longest-serving art droids.

This week also sees the comic shop release of the 556 Frames from Britain’s Borderline Press, a breakout Eastern European graphic novel finally released in English by Dennis Wojda, already an established comics creator in Poland, who decided to do something ambitious – tell the story of his entire family.

Plus, look out for the Princess Decomposia & Count Spatula Graphic Novel from US publisher First Second, by the talented Andi Watson, available in Hardcover or Softcover editions.

Dredd and Anderson are leading a rescue squad…

Plus we have:

• “Survival Geeks: Steampunk’d” by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby & Neil Googe

Somewhere in the outer limits of time and space, plunging through the planes of reality, is what looks from the outside like a regular suburban two-up two-down, but it is in fact powered by misfiring trans-dimensional technology. Inside live sci-fi obsessives Clive, Rufus and Simon, plus new (and not very happy about it) addition Sam. Now, they’ve crashed in a steampunk dimension, where they’ve met a version of their former housemate Evan…

Now, she has discovered that they are a trio of old men and a robotic knight, who have sworn to stop the Wurms…

• “Savage: Grinders” by Pat Mills & Patrick Goddard

556 Frames

556 Frames
Writer, Artist and Cover Artist: Dennis Wojda

This breakout Eastern European graphic novel is now brought to you in English. Dennis Wojda, already an established comics creator in Poland, decided to do something ambitious – tell the story of his entire family. He planned it out to 366 panels, one for each day of the year plus a leap day. As his website’s popularity grew, it soon attracted the interest of Polish publishers.

The problem was that the 366 frames of the story did not fit into any publishers’ idea of a graphic novel; not enough pages. They asked Dennis if he could expand on the project, and Dennis was delighted because he had been agonising over which stories of his ancestors’ lives he would have to cut or simply omit!

With this expanded version he could cover everything he wanted to with due respect and deference. The result is 566 Frames, a comic book with a real heart.
