There are quite a few folk that have contributed to FQP who got started in small press, from the mighty Michael Carroll right on through to newcomer Dan Cornwell so you never know who is going to be providing the comics you are reading.
I’ll be part of the fun at Nostalgia & Comics in Brum, but there are many more events all up and down the country!
I’ll specifically be pimping FutureQuake 2017 but will also have copies of some of the other, excellent books we produce.
FutureQuake is back to brighten the boring, Inspire the indolent and render the jaded jubilant! Within the 100 page issue witness 18 possible futures including the latest instalment of the astounding epic, Idea Space.
100 pages for the incredible price of £6.50

This weekend sees the next gig for FQP. We are exhibiting as part of the Birmingham Comics Festival in the heart of the city centre at Birmingham City University, in the Parkside Building in a room called ‘The Shell’. The gig is open to the public between 10am and 5pm and is completely Free!
On the day itself we will have the usual range of top quality comics, including an early chance to get hold of FutureQuake 2017 and there is the possibility of a talk on lettering by FQP’s Bolt-01 as well.
it might help you to have a map in case you need directions . The following link will take you to the map page but there is other info on the venue as well.
Thanks to all out there who have submitted scripts- we have had in the region of 120 scripts in this time, not including those who arrived late last night (and at least one who was too late). Of those we have read approx 50 and only 19 have so far been accepted.
The rest we will be working through in the coming weeks- so good luck.
It is worth noting that many of the simplest reasons for a script being rejected come down to the writer not actually reading either of the books they are pitching for. All the titles are available in both print and digital editions so there is really no excuse. Writers, do your homework.
Remember that both Zarjaz & Dogbreath are still open to scripts- so if you have a 2000 AD based script idea- get in touch!
