Missed Deadline Magazine at Macc-Pow!

Cover by Shaky Kane
Another good reason to attend Macc-Pow! this Saturday is that you'll be able to find out about Missed Deadline magazine, the upcoming revival of '90s comic Deadline

Jessica Kemp and Ed Hilyer will be there, and you'll be able to pick up a postcard that, when you scan it with your smartphone, will give you access to the digital issue 0 of Missed Deadline, - for free! 
Down at the Old Hope in Hell by Mark Stafford
What's in that zero issue? Weird and varied comics from people such as Mark Stafford, Craig Conlan, James Howard, David Leach, Marc Jackson and more. Some material is new, some you may have seen before, but it's all good stuff. 
Chicken Boy by James Howard
Ghost Cat by Craig Conlan
Psycho Gran by David Leach
My favourite was the UKIP spoof, BKIP, by PM Buchan and Phillip Marsden, about a bear version of UKIP. Mocking Farage and his ilk never gets old.

Come along to Macc-Pow! at Macclesfield Town Hall on Saturday and find out more!

Here Comes Cat Stevens!

A new comic is always worth celebrating. Here Comes Cat Stevens is a one-off from Marc Jackson's Weirdo Comics that was commissioned by the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival and funded by a grant by the Arts Council England. Where can you get it? At Macc-Pow! this Saturday, 1st July, at the Town Hall, Macclesfield.

What's it like? 32 pages of fun, and Marc Jackson's best comic yet in my opinion. The plot is simple and ideal for all ages: Cat Stevens (a cat, called Cat Stevens) and his friends embark on a journey to deliver pizza to an address in the woods, - but legend has it there's a monster there that eats pizza delivery guys! What happens? Get the comic and find out!

Marc Jackson's artwork has an appealing retro-but-modern style that's very engaging. The flat colours and limited palate suit it perfectly and help the story move along without clutter or distraction. 

Come along to Macc-Pow! on Saturday where Here Comes Cat Stevens will be one of the comics you'll be able to discover!

Thoughts on self-publishing...

On my other blog last week I posted an article regarding my opinions on self-publishing. It's already had hundreds of views but if you missed it, you can read it here:
http://lewstringercomics.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/why-self-publish.html

That blog is entirely about my own work, so it only attracts people who follow my comics (plus the occasional troll) so I thought I'd link to the article so the rest of you could see it. If you feel inclined to comment on that particular subject, please post over at that blog, not here, thanks.
