2000AD Playing Cards For Free

The August issue of SFX, number 172, comes with a nice little freebie of a set of 2000AD playing cards. Nicolai Dante is, appropriately, the Jack of Hearts while Halo Jones is the Queen of Hearts, although that perhaps should have more appropriately been vampiric mutant Durham Red who only manages the Three of Hearts.

Our congratulations must go to Paul Von Scott as the fourth issue of his excellent SF zine Omnivistascope is Fanzine Of The Month, making OVS four for four with that award. Our review of OVS 4 is here and you can buy the title directly from Paul at the OVS website.

SFX, which modesty describes itself as “The world’s number one sci-fi and fantasy magazine!” (despite, according to their ABC sales figures, being outsold by Doctor Who Adventures by almost five to one) is available in all the usual newsagents for £3.99.

The founder of downthetubes, John works as a comics editor, writer, as Creative Consultant on the Dan Dare audio adventures for B7 Media, and on promotional work for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival.
