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.

Zarjaz 36 – Out of Stock – temporarily

cover-z36-web-l

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!

BTW – if you are entering the 2000 AD pitchfest or art comp – I’d love to see the work at some point. More droids are discovered at TB, and via FQP than at any other gig (I believe)
