Bulletproof Launches!

New UK-based comic book publisher Bulletproof Comics has announced the launch of its updated website and the release of its first issue # 0.

“It’s certainly taken longer than we expected,” said Editor-in-Chief and Publisher, Matt Yeo, “but it’s great to finally launch our new-look site and put the finishing touches to our 16-page, black & white, Bulletproof #0 sampler.”

Originally launched as a standalone comics site a few years ago, Bulletproof Comics was set up to showcase and promote the work of up-and-coming British creative talent. The site contains material from new writers, artists and creators as well as work from established industry professionals.

“We had a ‘soft launch’ for our first printed comic book last year in the form of our 80-page, black & white anthology, Bulletproof #1, containing work from the likes of Steve Yeowell, Alan Grant, Mike Perkins, Garen Ewing and more,” said Yeo. “The online response was great, so we pushed forward with a website redesign, whilst simultaneously putting together issue #0 and the forthcoming Bulletproof #2.”

“We’re intending to make Bulletproof #2 as exciting as our launch issue, and it’ll be another 80-page monster of a comic, featuring our usual mix of genre strips from superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy to adventure, crime and slapstick humour.”

One of the strips planned for the issue is an episode of the SF series Ex Astris, created by Mike Nicoll, with a script from downthetubes webmaster John Freeman.

“Beyond that we have a number of mini-series and one-shots in the works, as well as more exciting products due later this year.”

“There’s just such a huge wealth of creative comic book talent in the UK that struggles to reach a wider audience, and that’s where we step in,” Yeo said. “We want to provide online and print-based platforms to make it easier for creators to get their work out to the rest of the world.”

“It’s a really exciting time for us, and there are some amazing comic book creations and creators ready to be unveiled, so expect more news from Bulletproof Comics soon!”

Bulletproof issue #0 and Bulletproof #1 are on sale now from the Bulletproof Comics Online Store.
