At LAST! Futurequake is on Comixology!


We are proud to announce that following on from a bit ol’ waiting period while the book was accepted, FutureQuake #27 is available for $1.99 or £1.49 via the comixology Submit platform. 

(I thought we were going to be on sale at 0.99c (0,69p) but something might have been pressed wrong)

So, if you have ‘ever’ dithered over the thought of buying possibly the best UK based ‘small press’ anthology, take this opportunity to jump on board and discover just why FQP are such a highly regarded stable.

Details of the contents are available here and the entire FQP catalogue are available here.

FQP November reviews!

FutureQuake #28- Cover by Steven Austin & Darren Stephens- available now.

As is usual here at FQP, I’ll be posting reviews as I see them, and so if anyone out there sees a review for a FQP title that is not mentioned her, please let me know where it is.

Reviews for small press titles are rare- so we tend to treasure them. Even the bad ones…

First up is a review received by email from Martin Feekins- 

Hi,

Just thought I’d drop you a note to say how much I enjoyed the issues of FutureQuake and Something Wicked (nos 28 and 11 respectively) that I picked up at Thought Bubble in Leeds.

It’s great to get a glimpse of the huge array of talent out there. With opportunities limited within mainstream British comics, FQP is invaluable.

In FutureQuake 28, I particularly enjoyed the art of Neil Sims and Steve Austin and the writing of Mike Yeoman and Michelle Wilkinson. In Something Wicked 11, I’d say the highlights were the art by Bryan Coyle and Shaun Speight and the scripts of Ryk Brink and JJ Robinson. But that’s just because I felt I had to pick a few highlights – it was all interesting, at the very least. 

Anyway, future (and at some point past) issues of FutureQuake will be on my “to buy” list.

Best wishes,

Martin Feekins

Thanks Martin. 

Next up is a review by ‘Judge Tutor Semple’  over at his blog- many thanks for the unbiased opinion.

Zarjaz 25 Review Fest!


Now that the new issues are all out in the wild, I’ll be rolling any reviews I see up into this post.

Of course, I may not see everything, so if anyone out there in blog land spots a review or a mention I’ve not posted, let me know.

First off is the content of an email from contributor Simon Bennett Hayes:

Hi Dave, I hope you had  a successful Thought Bubble. I saw the pic on the FP Blog. Very good!

I just wanted to compliment you (and all the creatives obviously), on the last Zarjaz.
Great issue with no duff stories, and 2 outstanding stories that really showed the Big Meg in all it’s distopian glory:The Epiphany of Treasure Highland and the story of JJohn Pepps.”

Thanks for getting in touch Simon, and for those out there who missed the pic- here it is:

Zarjaz #08- Sold out.

SOLD OUT! It had to start somewhere! Zarjaz #08 is no longer available from the FQP webshop.


Plans are afoot to enable the long term availability of older comics from FQP, but if you were waiting for your chance to sample the amazing quality of stories from FQP, take my advice – don’t. As a rule we do not support the comics past the initial print run, so once they are gone- they are gone for good.

Thanks to all the creators involved with this issue.
