Crusader Sketches

We were extremely honoured that David Frankum brilliantly sketched MFB superhero The Crusader and contributed the original drawing to the Demoncon raffle:

David also came up with this superbly moody Crusader illustration which now resides in The Denton Archives:

Here's a snap of David sketching at Demoncon, in front of the rather lovely new MFB banner:

The Crusader is scheduled to return in Massacre For Boys Picture Library. David's latest strip, Flesh, written by Andrew Cheverton, will be appearing in the new issue of Zarjaz.

Demoncon 4

As the poster suggests, David Frankum and I will be appearing at Demoncon 4 in Maidstone this Sunday. We'll be punting our various wares, whilst generally chatting about comics and stuff. This follows hot on the heels of the excellent Demoncon 3, and is therefore guranteed to be awesome.

If you're in the area, why not drop by?

Action Special: The Reviews Are In!

Two of the UK's top comics writers have taken in-depth looks at our latest offering.

The esteemable Richard Bruton of the Forbidden Planet Blog gave the Action Special his special attentions here.

Then the laudable Andy Oliver of Broken Frontier was kind enough to check out the Action Special, in combination with our earlier effort, In Colour, and post his thoughts at the other end of this link.

Our thanks go to both Andy and Richard for their time, and also for their kind words!

Oh dear, Summer seems to be over.

Not to worry though, work is continuing on the Picture Library, as evidenced here:

This is actually a missing page from a strip we first put out in 2009. Steve has gone back to it to complete the artwork and the full version of "Mars" will be published next year, just in time to celebrate Nasa's Curiosity rover discovering signs of Victorian British colonisation of the red planet. Possibly.
