British Comic Shop Releases (24th June 2015) – all-new Surface Tension and Resident Alien!

  
Here’s our guide to new comics and graphic on sale in British comic shops today (Wednesday 24th June 2015), complementing our monthly list of new British graphic novels and comic collections (June 2015 list here). This list. as usual, focuses primarily on both British creators and publishers.

This weeks sees the release of Surface Tension #2 from Titan Comics, the intriguing story from Jay Gunn offering a thoroughly modern and absolutely chilling  eco-fable, evoking Quatermass and John Wyndham’s SF work such as Day of the Triffids and The Chrysalids. Well worth taking a look, I think – you can read my review of Issue One here.

Also on my list is Resident Alien: Sam Hain Mystery #2 from Dark Horse by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse, a crime mystery which sees some unexpected discoveries in the small town of Patience, Washington, home to the alien known as Dr. Harry Vanderspeigel. Another great story from Peter, and plenty of folk were singing Steve’s praises at Lancaster Comics day a fortnight ago, and his art still continues to enthral. Roll on the TV series!

Don’t forget that despite many 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, Judge Dredd Megazine, Panini’s 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) Mega, TOXIC and many others.

The Hachette Judge Dredd Collection is also on sale now, but 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.

Plus, the wonderful Phoenix Comic is on sale in all Waitrose supermarkets as well as available on subscription and through its dedicated iPad app.
