Word has reached us via writer Emmet O’Cuana that Matinee, the short created by him and artist David Parsons has reached the finals of the 2019 Australian Shadows Awards!

Matinee-Blog

Matinee was one of the fine strips in Something Wicked 2019 – still available!

Good luck to Emmet and David, this is a fine strip and we are very pleased to see it doing well in this forum.

New comic – FABLES OF FEAR!

fa6eebc8ee76c2a3b2708eac0839da16._sx360_ql80_ttd_

Here’s a thing! Two of my favourite creators for FQP have gotten together and produced a comic of their very own!

FABLES OF FEAR is by writer Karl Brandt and artist David Parsons – both of whom have produced many strips for FQP over the years but now they are working together!

Available from comiXology the book contains 3, full colour tales, including a new version of Jotun Fury from Something Wicked 2017.

Hightly recommended, this slim volume hopefully showcases the start of something more to come!

FutureQuake 2020 – now on comiXology

In the past it has taken a fair few weeks to get this notification, but the fine folk at comiXology have notified me that FutureQuake 2020 is now available!

FQ2020-CX

The direct link to the issues is:- Right here for your ease and convenience!

And the reduced price should help you digital readers to keep up. Remember that the best way to experience FutureQuake is to read a printed copy – these books are specially designed to enhance your experience.

Print copies have been leaving FQP all week (seriously, all I’ve done for the last two weeks is pack envelopes) but you can get your copy from The FQP webshop!

True Believers 2020 is this Saturday, at the Jury’s Inn in Cheltenham. Tickets look to be £8.00 in advance and £10.00 on the day.

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)
