Many thanks to Lee, Jim and Bryan for helping get these strips done and remember to come back and order your copy of Zarjaz 21, available soo
Over on his blog, artist PJ Holden, the man behind the art on Dept of Monterology, loads of strips for 2000 AD and the first artist in my sketchbook, has made This post talking about Small Press comics.
He’s right about pretty much everything in it.
Thanks to PJ for the kind words and if you agree with them, feel free to vote FutureQuake at the TrueBelievers!
The cover to Zarjaz 21, by the astoundingly talented Patrick Goddard, with colours by Owen Watts.
Zarjaz 21 is the annual all Dreddworld issue and will be on sale early July 2014
Thanks again to Patrick for a superb piece of art
FutureQuake 25 is late.
No two ways about it, this issue should have been on sale in March, but for reasons that I’ll not be going into here, that didn’t happen.
I did get the cover sorted though, this little beauty from Bruno Stahl…
Flash forward and FutureQuake 26 should have been getting prepped right about now, and I’d already sourced a cover for the issue by Conor Boyle…
but hold on, I’d gotten a cover already from last issue that wasn’t used! What to do?
Should I hold the Conor cover back, along with the strip that it goes with? Hold back the Bruno cover, and the strip that one goes with? I did consider both of those options, but I am not planning on there being an issue of FQ in November this year so that would mean holding the cover for almost another six months before it saw print.
That’s bad form, and If I was a contributor to that title I’d be having words.
So, my only solution really was to run both covers. Therefore FutureQuake 25, available July 2014 for as long as the print run lasts will feature two covers and two lead strips!
Fingers crossed I’ve got the formatting on this one right.

Shamelessly stolen from David’ss blog. Lots of clever stuff about how the strip was created.
