Zarjaz 37 – Strips locked in.

Hi all – Zarjaz 37 is due to be on sale in 4 weeks, July 1st to be exact so I have been juggling running orders for the comic for a few weeks.

I’ve been balancing out strips already completed, alongside those commissioned with a relevant deadline, to build a strong running order for the summer issue.

As of today, that running order is decided and the rest of the editorial team have been informed and started their work towards getting the issue finished.

If you have a completed and ‘locked for print’ strip waiting for Zarjaz, then you may have gotten an email from me this morning. If you did, then I’m sorry as that was the email letting folk know they are being held over to next issue.

If you are working on a strip for Zarjaz, and have not had confirmation that your strip is ‘locked for print’ then it is not finished yet, so is not going to be in the new issue.

Zarjaz only has 44 pages of strip each issue, so building an issue is a matter of availability and balance.

This is awkward, as many of you out there have worked hard to hit the deadline I gave you only to be told you are not running. I apologise for this and thank you again for all the work. Remember, no-one gets paid at Zarjaz. We are all doing this for the love of comics.

Thanks again and I hope to share more from Zarjaz 37 in the next week.

Zarjaz & Dogbreath – Old Stock wanted?

Hi All, I’ve had a couple of emails during lockdown from Squaxx wanting to ‘fill gaps’ for Zarjaz or Dogbreath. I’ve had to politely let folk down as in all honesty I just can’t store the numbers of comics it would require to keep a complete back issue selection in place.

BUT! 

If you ‘could’ pick-up any back-issues from the runs of the galaxies greatest fanzines – what would you want? Something recent that has just dropped off the site or maybe something from well back in the day. If it was published by us here, then I can make it happen if demand warrants it.

Drop me a line, with ‘back issues’ in the header somewhere and if any of the issues get anywhere near making it worth me getting some more printed (around 20 is the minimum) then I’ll make it happen.

Judge Dredd – Cal’s Arena

Rewind time to late 2014 – and in the pages of Zarjaz 24, you will find Judge Dredd – Cal’s Arena by Steven Austin & Mike Lynch. This was a pretty important strip for us at team Zarjaz, as Steven had been steadily submitting to Tharg (‘TMO’) for a while and was making steady progress in becoming a droid.

This strip grew out of an Entry Steven made to the 2000 AD messageboard art competition and it was a delight to have it in Zarjaz.

 

What could be better? Well how about presenting the strip in full colour?

Hi all, due to the ongoing Zombie Apocalypse… pandemic, I’m unable to get my customary restock of Zarjaz.

Please rest assured that once the last walker has been put-down… printer gets back to work I’ll be restocking and letting you all know.

This is merely the first issue to be affected, there are other issues that are getting perilously close to being sold out, so if there is a small press shaped hole in your reading pile – you should sort that itch NOW!
