ComicBastards review by Dustin Cabeal. Thanks for the honest review.

Have you read it? Yeah?

Lettering. I’m pretty good at lettering. I’m not saying I’m brilliant, because I know full well there are loads of things I just don’t know enough about. However, I’m better than most.

For me, having a lettering style that is consistent throughout the book is a good thing. After all this is a FQP book. Almost all the strips we present have been through editorial many times before the artwork is delivered to try and get the ‘best’ version of the strip out there. So having a consistent lettering approach aids with the branding of the comic.

Also- I’m a picky ‘so and so’ when it comes to lettering and I don’t have any issues telling artists that their work is not good enough.

So, here’s a question- should FQP use multiple letterers? Would the experience of reading a FQP title (and please bear in mind that these books are now up to 100 pages in some cases) be improved by  having a wider variety of lettering styles?

please, let me know.

Futurequake 05 on Comixology

Continuing the program of releasing old comics on comixology, we are proud to announce that FutureQuake 05 is about to drop.


This issue was originally released back in the autumn of 2005, at the Brighton expo (The one Dezz Skinn ran and Brendan McCarthy did the promo art for) and FQP shared a table at that gig with Molch-R, who was himself in the SPress at the time with his ‘End is nigh book’…

FQ05 also features work by Al Ewing, Mike Carroll, Eddie Robson, Arthur Wyatt and quite a few folks who used to be found around these parts…
