Druid01_coverMagic has always been a big part of British fiction, with all mediums depicting any mysterious goings on as more sorcery than science, mostly relating to the legend of Camelot. Now Dan Harris of Lou Scannon adds his own take to both aspects with Druid Investigations, a story about sorcerers vanquishing evil in modern day Britain. Is this a title which can conjure up success or will it be in need of some serious abra cadabra?

Papercuts4Madius Comics are back with the 5th installment of their signature anthology Papercuts and Inkstains (however just to cause maximum confusion it’s numbered as issue 4!). But will it continue the upswing to greatness they managed with the double bill of Papercuts #3a and #3b and can they continue to be one of the best indie anthologies around?

indie-round-upWe take at look at some of the best indie comics around with our latest round-up featuring: a slick digital thriller from Ash Pure in The Lion And the Unicorn; time-travelling and time-twisting tales in Hana Comics’ Paradox Girl; a steampunk detective in Matt Garvey’s long awaited The Adventures of Cordelia Swift and alien survivalists in Justin M Ryan’s Trespasser from Alterna Comics.

True Believers 2016With 2016 now in full swing, the time has come for convention season to get underway and first out of the gate is the trip down to Cheltenham Racecourse as neither the heavy winds or torrential rain seemed enough to dampen the spirits of the fans, creators or agents alike making their pilgrimage to the new con on the block, True Believers Comic Festival 2016.

indie-round-upOur latest round-up of the best digital index comics features: politics, religion and reality TV stars in Ned Hartley’s Anti Gods; clueless cops in a small town with Tally Burtram’s Bajo Mano; Make Garley’s immortal retro killing machine the Samurai Slasher; and superhero hitman webcomic Turncoat from Ryan O’Sillivan and Plaid Kraus.

PapercutsCover01ConventionAnthologies are the life blood of indie comics, with fantastic examples like 100% Biodegradable and Sliced Quarterly offering fans multiple ideas in a single dose. With Papercuts and Inkstains, Madius Comics are looking to join the cool kids anthology club, but can this eclectic series help show the worth of the anthology or will it only help confirm why the single story format dominates the shelves?

indie-round-upWe start the new year with first our collection of the best indie digital comics featuring: punk rock tales in Chunks, a all female horror anthology from Hellcat Press called Dark Lady; lots of people getting punched in the face in Punchface; and some experimental slice of life tales in Sliced Quarterly.

indie-round-upThanks to the rise of digital comics the indie and small press world is flourishing and every month we round-up the best indie digital comics available via apps like Sequential, as well looking at online webcomics and those available via small press publisher’s websites. It wasn’t easy to choose just 10 so let us know which you’d have preferred to see, but here are our favourite indie digital comics from 2015.

The Kill ScreenFrom video games to social media and the Internet, technology is now a huge part of our lives. But what if all this technology were to actually destroy the world around us?
