After a recent review of Wolfmen and Rise of the Wolfmen, we were contacted by Accent UK supremo Dave West, to see if we would be interested in having a look at some of the other books available from this UK indie stable, and we’re glad we did as it meant we got to check out some fantasic books involving monster hunting cowboys, steampunk robots in circuses and the tragic tale of the worlds fastest man.

This weekend saw the great and the good of the UK indie and small press scene descend of the Cardiff Masonic Hall for the Cardiff Independent Comic Expo. Although we couldn’t make it on the day, we were lucky enough to be sent some preview copies of 4 of the fantastic books being released this weekend at CICE, so here is our pick of what we would have got, if we’d been able to make it to Wales!

With Leamington Comic Con fast approaching us, we take a look at 4 books which are making their debut at this weekend’s event, featuring: Darrell Thorpe’s Sub Diablo: Great Titans; King Legacy #1, Rozi Hathaway’s Cosmo and Other Stories; and Paul Rainey’s Thunber Brother Special.

We first encountered the team from Good Comics at the Bristol Comics and Zine Fair back in October, and having crossed paths with them again at last month’s True Believers we thought it really was about time we wrote a bit about their unique collection of ‘micro-published’ comics and zines. We pick out three of the best from their recent winter line-up to give you a taster of the lo-fi world of Good Comics.

We’ve finally reached the end of our True Believers reading list and there are a couple of crackers on it including: a sampler of a dark folk-horror comic called Heretics; a quirky romance that starts on a late night platform in Last Train Home; some zany all-ages action in the Etherington Brothers Monkey Nuts; and some pyromanic fun in Rachael Smith’s I Am Fire.

Ahead of this weekend’s True Believers Comic Festival in Cheltenham, we take a look some of the fantastic books being released at the event, featuring: Greg Meldrum & David Broughton’s Detective Gallo and The Unholy Company, Mad Robot Comics’ Cadavers, Kev Brett’s The Making Of A Comic Con, Joseph Olivera’s Ghost Island, and Hellbound Media’s Mandy The Monster Hunter: The Face IN The Curtain.

thoughtbubble-logo2016-200This weekend saw the great and the good of the UK comic scene descend on Leeds for the annual Thought Bubble Comics Arts Festival. As well as featuring big names from the mainstream it was also one of the most important weekend’s for the indie and small press scene with dozens of new books being released and showcased. We take a look at some of our favourites – and we’ll keep updating it as we gradually work our way through our pile of books to read from the weekend!
