As well as all of this, this issue comes with a download of the complete (for Zarjaz & Dogbreath) work of the late Nigel Dobbyn. Nigel is much missed here so this is something very close to our hearts(es).
It’s with great sadness that I write these words. Nigel Dobbyn, artist of so many of my favourite things, has died.
Aged just 56, Nigel was a true hero to me. His work was and is one of the reasons I make comics, from his early work on Medivac 318 in 2000 AD to the most recent 28AR in Brawler, Nigel was always a treat to see work from.
I was lucky enough to meet Nigel many times over the years, and I was lucky enough to be able to present covers from him on four of our books, Dogbreath 17 & 24, Zarjaz 09, 17 and the 2016 summer special, a personal highlight of mine.
Nigel was also the first artist I actively sought out for a commission. His rendition of Kid Knee for me is a piece I will always treasure.
Nigel was generous with his time, and always a pleasure to spend time chatting and laughing with.
Thanks for reading and rest in peace Nigel, our thoughts are with your family on this most horrible of days.

As usual we’ll have a table heaving with the finest comics we have to offer, and the latest issues of FutureQuake, Something Wicked, Dogbreath and Zarjaz as well as a limited number of copies of the classic Neroy Sphinx collection.
This year we are in the ‘Originals Marquee’ situated on Cookridge Street. We are at Table number 01, and we are next door to the lovely folk from Disconnected Press.
If you take a gander at the rather huge list of exhibitors you will notice that we are in pretty good company this year, so here’s hoping for a successful convention.
Remember, that many of the past winners of the 2000 AD writing and art competition have been published extensively in FQP books, so if you are wanting to see who is going to be a start next year, you need to be reading these books.
As usual the Gronk will be with me, ensuring that any and all medical emergencies are covered and remember that all sales that reach over £10 earth money will be able to choose from a selection of sketches that will be available (examples of which are over on the Instagram)
Drop by, say hi and treat yourself to the finest selection of Small Press comics around!
As is tradition here at FQP, we try to get actual working droids to provide the covers to Zarjaz and Dogbreath. So it was a real treat to get to hassle former design droid, now upgraded to art droid, PYE PARR into working on the cover to the new Dogbreath (launching tomorrow)
FQP spoke to Pye at the astounding 40th birthday bash for 2000 AD and he was all too willing to get involved.
Within a couple of weeks we were sent:
Which, I’m sure you’ll agree is full of all the movement you could want. Pye wanted to add more elements of the cast, but only managed to fully realise Middenface and the Gronk before finishing.
Massive thanks to Pye Parr for the superb image and as always to Tharg for letting us play with his toys.
The final cover will be available in all its glory tomorrow when Dogbreath 33 launches.
