Hey fellow Zarjaz/Futurequakers,
My name’s Tony McVeigh, a fellow Futurequaker from Northern Ireland. You may remember me from my rather unsavory Angel Gang story ‘The Birthday Gift’ in the latest issue of Zarjaz.
Anyway, I’m chuffed to say I have a project called ‘Devil’s Music’ in Round 2 this year’s SMALL PRESS IDOL competition.
The voting that will decide if our project will make it to round 3 has just opened up. I would greatly appreciate any support that my fellow Zarjaz/Futurequake alumni could give me.
To vote you need to sign up for an account on SPI (it’s free of charge and of SPAM), which you can do here:
SMALL PRESS IDOL!!
Then login and vote here: (just select ‘I am a fan of this project’ and click the VOTE button)
You can vote for the project once daily from now until next Wednesday. Every vote keeps us alive. So sign up and give your fellow droid a helping hand.
Thanks In Advance
Unicon was attended last week by the brothers Denton, and they were kind enough to take some copies of the latest Zarjaz & Dogbreath along as well. They even got a Jimped!
You will not believe This!
Serious congratulations to GQ and Keiren, and I hope to be able to score a copy as commissioning editor!

This Just In!
Title Slaine- A Place of Shelter is written by Alec Robertson, with art by Roland Bird. The strip is four pages long and will feature in Zarjaz 10.
Forgive me for posting this so late- but this weeks prog has a rather nice treat for the contributors to both Zarjaz & Dogbreath. An unsolicited pimp. His verdant majesty, Tharg the action-figure Model, saw it fit to mention that he liked the new crop, and he gave special mention to the mighty Teen Wulf strip by Richmond and Kev Picture from Kev’s blog- Thanks, mate.
Yes YOU! Julia Bax who some of you may well remember for
The Injuries of Mr. Indestructible,
Tides & Currents
has posted this on her blog: ZUDA!!
From the ever so talented lady herself:
I would like to announce that I, along with writer Brian Joines and letterer Michael Thomas have been selected for the April 2010 Zuda Comics competition!
Our project is called ‘Mr Trildok Sings the Blues’ and its about a demonic creature going through the woes of divorce. Its humor with a bunch of fantasy in a modern day setting.
For those who don’t know, Zuda is the webcomics site of DC Comics. The first place on every monthly competition gets a contract for at least a year, producing the winning project. And everyone can follow the story, on the website, for FREE!
The competition is decided by popular vote! Hence, my email. I would like to invite you all to read our entry:
‘Mr Trildok Sings the Blues’
And after, if you deem us worth your while, please take some minutes of your day and VOTE for us!! It’s pretty quick, you just have to sign in, get the password in the email they send you, then log in and click the big VOTE on the right side of our story. Also, you can also add us to favorite and give us stars for extra support. And tell a few friends and family.
I thank you all for the attention and time spent helping us out.
So come on! Help out a FormerQuaker!
The Eagle Awards Nominations are now open for this year. For comics released in 2009.
FQP was fortunate to be represented in both 2007 and 2008 with a nomination for best british black & white title, and FutureQuake is proud have been named in the preliminary nominations again this year.
This is by no means a guarantee that FQ will be nominated in the finals for the year, as there were many fine titles produced that year, but our eligible titles for 2009 were:
Something Wicked 05
All of the creators of these strips are fine individuals and are worthy of your support. Remember, if you don’t vote- you cannot complain about who wins.
THE EVERYTHING BOX, Written by Mike Morgan, Art by Joe Ward and lettered by Ryan Taylor. 6 pages due to be printed in FQ16.
Coming to Zarjaz 10, Judge Dredd- Xtras, following on from the strip in Dogbreath 20, another day in the life of a comic-book extra. Written by Lee Robson and art by Brett Buckle.
