Biodegradable Issue 3

Issue 3 of the bi-monthly sci-fi digital comic anthology '100% Biodegradable', which I edit and write for, is out now!

Deep sea divers, deadly supernatural hell hounds, loved up aliens, and lashings of wondrous carnage and mayhem!

The comic is 30 pages, B/W and colour, featuring strips by Tony Suleri (Scar Comics, Futurequake), Mark Bertolini (Markosia, FUBAR Press) Carl Yonder (Action Lab Comics, Comixtribe) Dave Hailwood (Toxic, Strip Magazine), Dave Thomson (Strip Magazine, Dr WTF?) Simon Mackie, Mike Parsons and Denis Vermesse (cover by Carl Yonder, with design work by Assistant Editor John Kirkham)

All three issues of 100% Biodegradable were recently reviewed on the comic website A Place To Hang Your Cape and received an overall score of 8/10.  The reviewer, Robert Wallis, said a lot of positive things about the comics, and concluded with "Hailwood is a great economical storyteller and the artwork is consistently impressive. The standout story, however, comes in Issue 3: the images conjured up by Denis Vermesse “Life & Death” bring to mind Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman. The series is close to becoming a more-than reliable brand, and with, perhaps, a few more risks, it could be magnificent"

 So if you've got 69p/99 cents to spare, then please grab yourself a copy from DriveThru Comics or Comicsy

Bulldog Freebies

For World Book Day UK comic writer Jason Cobley has made all his ebooks free, including The Greatest Adventures Of Captain Winston Bulldog, The Extraordinary Exploits Of Captain Winson Bulldog, and Bulldog Clips.

I've always had a bit of a softspot for Captain Bulldog as the Bulldog Adventures Magazine was the first small press comic I ever brought (way back in the nineties!).  There's some mighty fine creators involved in these comics, and you'll find the likes of Garen Ewing (of Rainbow Orchid fame), PJ Holden (2000ad regular), Neill Cameron (highly popular artist for The Phoenix) and there's also a few contributions from myself and Paul Harrison Davies (my Bunk Mates and Hoodied Horror collaborations with Paul appear inside Bulldog Clips).

Anyway, enough waffle from me!  They may not be free for long, so pop along to Lulu and start downloading them now!
