New Thunder Super Soap Division breaks into our quantum reality

Thunder Brother Soap Division #3

The third issue of Paul Rainey’s Thunder Brother: Soap Division is now available to order from his online shop. Like both of the previous two, copies of which are still available to buy, it features a complete Thunder Brother: Soap Division story which, on this occasion, is called “The Two Ronnies”. But this edition also features rare and previously unseen comic strip extras, including the Jeremy Kyle Show/Doctor Who mash-up strip, Doctor Kyle.

In Ghost.Zombie! one character’s a ghost, one’s a zombie – and together they are Ghost.Zombie. Plus, In full colour for the first time, West: Badwater Lake, written by the mighty Andrew Cheverton on loan from Angry Candy.

Richard Bruton had this to say about the brand new issue on the Forbidden Planet Blog: “Rainey’s doing that brilliant thing he does so easily it seems; taking a simple enough sci-fi idea and really, really thinking it through, getting into all those troublesome details that it’s all too easy to ignore in favour of shifting that plot forwards. Rainey takes another view, that there’s a story within those troublesome details. Of course, it does help that Rainey’s storytelling and art match up to his clever ideas all the way.”

Each issue of Thunder Brother: Soap Division is 24 pages long, is full colour throughout and costs only £3. (Price includes free P&P to the UK)
