Following the trend of having writer/artist duos, this time around we have the writer and artist of the steampunk, paranormal comic The Boston Metaphysical Society, Madeleine Holly-Rosing and Emily Hu. Recently nominated for a Geekie Award, the series follows Hunter and O’Sullivan, paranormal investigators for the BMS, a group created by some of the Victorian era’s greatest minds to investigate the strange, ghostly and ghastly goings on in Boston, Mass. This series is a must read for fans of the X-Files!
The purpose of this new monthly column, produced in conjunction with the UK`s Premier Comic Retailer Inter-Comics.com, is to pick some of the highlights (in my opinion, and discussion is welcomed!) out from forthcoming solicitations which will be available to order online and my ‘quick picks’ to pull. Due to the vast amount of comics available monthly these days, there will be a focus on Marvel, DC and Image; although there will no doubt be honourable mentions to such juggernauts as IDW, Boom, Dark Horse and hopefully all manner of ‘indie’ publishers.
This time around we have the double pronged attack of Slorance and Bell or Slorabell! It’s everyone’s favourite Dungeoneers Neil Slorance and Colin Bell, co-creators of the magnificent all ages comic Dungeon Fun, not a self help guide to creating a BDSM lair, but an action/adventure comic in the vein of Zelda! Voted 61st best comic of 2013 by CBR and recently sweeping the board at the Scottish Independent Comic Book Awards, it is a genuinely funny piece of work that everyone can enjoy and should be thrust in front of every school child in the UK!

This time around we have James J Heath, producer of Indie film The Fitzroy talking about it’s tie in anthology comic!

This time around we are talking to Gilbert Deltres, writer and creator of zombie horror comic Under The Flesh, a gritty blast of sex, horror, sci-fi, and dabbling in various sub-themes like evolution, spirituality, and transhumanism. A zombie apocalypse comic that strays away from the traditional viral story by accentuating a premeditated reason behind the virus, as opposed to leaving the origin of the outbreak as a common question mark.
