An absolute delight - the upcoming Goldtiger from 2000AD

New Comics On Sale This Week: Goldtiger, Burning Bright for 2000AD and Giant Days Delight

An absolute delight - the upcoming Goldtiger from 2000AD
An absolute delight –  Goldtiger from 2000AD, out now

Here’s my pick of this week’s list of British creator and British publisher-skewed new comics, including new comics on sale in UK newsagents. This feature covers all titles released from Monday 4th April onwards with most new US comics released on Wednesday 6th April. (Do note that some US comics may be on sale later in the week due to Easter).

Top of your pick list from comic shops, if you haven’t already bought it, has to be Goldtiger from 2000AD, released last month in book shops. As we previously reported, this fabulous “faux” newspaper strip (or is it?) is the work of  Guy Adams and Jimmy Broxton. The book marks the first time 2000AD has published a new work not previously serialised in the publisher’s weekly and monthly anthologies.

Begun as a Kickstarter campaign, this love-letter to the British newspaper adventure strips of the 20th Century is a fascinating and full-bloodied mix of Modesty Blaise and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier Clay. 2000AD happily gets caught up in the whole conceit of this being a “real” strip (which it might be…) in this fabulous collection. Recommended.

Also look out for the second Giant Days Trade Paperback from Boom!, written by John Allison with art from Lissa Treiman and Max Sarin. In this latest collection, Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends because their dorm rooms were next to each other. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of hand-wringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery mold, nuchauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive…

The original cover for the ‘lost’ Goldtiger strip, The Poseiden Complex

Goldtiger: Poseidon Complex Trade Paperback
Writer: Guy Adams Artist/ Cover Artist: Jimmy Broxton

Antonio Barreti and Louis Shaeffer’s Goldtiger, the iconic 60s comic strip that never was… until now! An obscure Italian artist and a down-to-earth British writer, worlds apart in both taste and ideology, came together to create a rival to Modesty Blaise that has lived in infamy. The duo’s adventures of Lily Gold and Jack Tiger were ultimately deemed too sensational for the nation’s newspaper pages and the strip was cancelled before it even ran. This enthralling book presents ‘The Poseidon Complex’, the complete serial, lifting the lid on comics’ most unsung creation and includes letters, scripts, interviews and sketches – all documenting the creation of the strip and the
outlandish lives of its creators.

It also presents ‘Goldtiger 2000’, offered to (but refused by) 2000AD for its launch in 1977 and details Barreti’s continued refusal to let his groundbreaking ideas die, even if nobody wanted to publish them.

Miss Fury Trade Paperback Volume 2 Walk Through The Valley
Publisher: D. E.
Writer:  Rob Williams Artist: Jackson Herbert Cover Artist: Dennis Calero

Marla Drake, the untamable costumed adventurer known as Miss Fury, fought Nazis with wild abandon not just during World War II, but – due to a scientific mishap – throughout time, as well. Now trapped in the 1943 of a parallel universe, she comes face-to-face with her mirror double, a hedonistic murderess whose soul was never saved by the love of a good man. Realizing what her life could be like now that she has lost her own beloved Matthew Chandler, she surrenders to the slimy promises of Schauburger, a rogue (and dead) Nazi agent whose ghost can alter the timestream and set things right. The cost? Killing the alternate Marla Drake, the Pharaoh of Time, the Mafia superhero The Mob, a US Naval Intelligence nuclear physicist… and the list goes on. No matter how hard she tries, people just seem to want Miss Fury to murder for them. How many must die so that she can become a good person again?
