Strips this issue are the latest episode of Kick Ass 2 by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.; Turf, chapter 3 by Jonathan Ross and Tommy Lee Edwards; the still bonkers and inpenetrable
Rex Royd by Frankie Boyle, Jim Muir and Michael Dowling;
American Jesus, by Mark Millar and Peter Gross and the superb-looking Nemesis, chapter 3 by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven.
This month’s Space Oddities short strip is a real stunner called Lost Soldiers: The Fall of the Fortress by Bruno Letizia. The art on this is great – let’s hope we see more from him in future issues.
This is is this writer/artist’s first mainstream English publication, but he’s done a huge amount of work in Italy for publishers such as Nicola Pesce Editore, Coniglio editore and more recently, for Alacran with strips such as the comic book porn situation comedy Food Girls for Coniglio Editore (written under the pseudonym Savage Dolls).
Comics news site Bleeding Cool has more details on him and some of the other Space Oddities creators here.
CLiNT #3 also features interviews with film director Quentin Tarantino, Al Murray, The IT Crowd’s Matt Berry and Star Wars Kid all grown up!.
