Available now from ‘Get My Comics’ is Bigger Fish, by writer Ed Whiting, artist Hakan Aydin, colours by J Francis Totti and Letters by Robin Jones.
AMERICA 1971. THE GOVERNMENT DELARES A WAR ON DRUGS…THE UNDERWORLD HAS OTHER PLANS.
Former soldier Mike Pereta is looking for work. His friend Danny Cortese has some, a drug deal with the Mexican Cartel. There’s two problems, the most powerful mob boss in New York, Danny’s uncle, doesn’t know about it. And the NYPD. They do. And they want in.
My opinion: Ed has been writing short form fiction for FQP for a few years, racking up five shorts since his debut in 2017’s Zarjaz 29. This is the first ‘long form’ tale of his I’ve read and it worked well. This is a well told tale of double crosses, gang fights and who is the ‘baddest’ and I think it will lead to bigger and better things for all involved.
There are a few niggles that could have been cleaned up with a tighter proof read and there is one sequence where the storytelling got a little muddled, but I’m happy to recommend this to all reading it here.
Sometimes a question comes along that just doesn’t go away. We’ve been asked a few times over the years about reprints of earlier issues of Zarjaz & Dogbreath and seeing as the print run is limited I’ve not really done more than keep the most recent couple of years issues available.
However, we ‘do’ keep getting asked about older issues so I’m saying here – if there is demand for an issue to be reprinted, then I’ll do it.
If you are reading this and there are issues of either Zarjaz or Dogbreath that you want to fill your collection (please bear in mind that I can only print the issues I’ve published, so no shouting out for the rare as funt Dreddcon specials) get in touch with us and we will see what we can do.
I’m not about to sit and order loads of copies of older issues, but if enough interest is out there I can justify getting a short run made.
After finding the mythical weapon known as The Godcutter, international arms dealer Mael Riqueti is set to take the reigns of the ancient secret society known as The Brotherhood Of The Blade – and anyone who controls The Brotherhood controls the world…
It falls to the world’s greatest secret agent, Velicity Jones, to stop Riqueti before he ascends to the ultimate seat of power – but with acolytes of The Brotherhood in every walk of life, Velicity soon finds she has nowhere to turn…
Personal note – declaring up front that I’ve lettered this and all other Velicity Jones strips. However, these are great little spy serials and deserve to be widely read. Many of you reading this will know both Lee and Bryan from their historical work for FQP so you know you are getting a good story, well told.
