British Comic Shop Comic Releases (12th November 2014) – Dogs Fighting and Kung-Fu Cheesecake!

Here’s a list of comics – both US and UK releases – on sale in specialist UK comic shops today, Wednesday 12th November 2014, courtesy of First Age Comics, Lancaster. We’ve picked out the titles published by British publishers in bold below, or titles with a British connection we’re aware of.

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 and Commando, with great strips featuring in titles such as Judge Dredd Megazine, Doctor Who Magazine, Doctor Who Adventures, TOXIC, VIZ and more.
