Something For The Weekend (w/c 19th September 2016): New Aces Weekly, 2000AD 1999!

2000AD Prog 1999

Just one week to go before 2000AD Prog 2000! (And oh, it is worth the wait… but don’t miss this week’s stonking Prog 1999 in all the excitement. Beating a path to the door of WHSmith stores for it on Wednesday, even though they’ll try to hide it! (Some of them, anyway…)

But rather than highlight on a print delight this week, we thought we give the big heads up to the latest volume of David Lloyd‘s brilliant digital anthology Aces Weekly (Volume 24), which is available from today (Monday 19th September). Subscribe now. Otherwise, we’ll tell him where you live.

This time, the writer of one the most popular, smartest, stories David has had the pleasure to feature in Aces Weekly, Santa Claus Versus The Nazis, returns! The terrific Ben Dickson joins up with the amazing, Jeff Anderson, to tell a story about a workplace experience that looks like becoming the experience of a lifetime… And the rest is as arresting – as ever. Go see.

If you already subscribe to Aces Weekly, then David and the team are count on any help you think you can give them to let everyone know about the comic, and they greatly appreciate anything you can do. Cyberspace publishing benefits reader and creator alike in the way Aces Weekly does it do it, and will always do it, but it needs help to make its way to the target it deserves to reach. Spread the word!

UK Newsagents Releases

Doctor Who Adventures Issue 19 - CoverThere are plenty of comics on sale in newsagents that still delight in bringing you such subversive delights, including 2000AD, The Beano, Danger Mouse comic, Commando (latest release intel here), Judge Dredd MegazinePanini Comics Marvel Collector Editions titles, Titan Comics superhero titles and VIZ, with great strips also featuring in titles such as Doctor Who Magazine, Doctor Who Adventures, Titan’s Doctor Who: Tales from the TARDIS (collecting their strips from the US format titles), Mega, TOXIC and many others.

Still on sale this week in newsagents is Panini Comics first issue of their new Lion Guard comic, packed with original adventure stories featuring Kion and his group of friends on their journey to protect the Pride Lands and defend the Circle of Life. It comes with two jigsaw puzzles plus a collectable figurine.

Don’t forget the wonderful Phoenix Comic is on sale in many (but not all) Waitrose supermarkets and selected high street WH Smiths stores – and some comic shops (stockist list here), as well as available on subscription.

So let’s not get too downhearted by some British publishers lack of faith in full-blown cover to cover comic strip action and humour that only those of us over a certain age remember.

Hachette Partworks, whose partwork titles include Doctor Who: The Complete History and Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection, continue their How To Draw The Marvel Way, along with their re-release of their hugely successful part work, Marvel’s Marvel Ultimate Graphic Novelseries.

Note that you may now have to subscribe if you want to continue buying Part Works some are not distributed in newsagents after their first few issues.
