Many congratulations for the new Comics Unlimited, and good luck with it Tony Very Happy I'll see if I can get it delivered to my local locker from Amazon Uk, or can we, loyal and faithful followers, buy it directly (discounted? Rolling Eyes ) from our Big Boss? Cool

Ok, I can order it through Amazon Wink , it's curiuos to notice that, when I see the CU page it on my phone, the author listed is GBF with "two other ones" (with one being Tony! Cool ) while on my old Pc I see that it is listed GBF with our old Tony (Author), Stephen Hooker (Author), Dean Plakas (Author), Steve Laming (Author), so we can say you have a crowded editorial team....!

In fact, the only actual editors are Glenn (who is also the designer and publisher), myself and Stephen. But there are a lot of contributors, Dean and Steve being the most prominent.

Comics Unlimited is an idea we've been trying to get off the ground since before Crikey! magazine folded, years ago. It's taken this long because it's incredibly difficult these days to launch a magazine without having a small fortune to invest in it.

It's intended to be bi-monthly, but because issue one ended up coming out close to the end of July, the next one will likely not be until the end of September. We're all currently writing, deadline for completed submissions being the eigth of August. I shall share details of the likely contents nearer the time... Very Happy

I remember Sad Sack . . . he was created back during WWII, but I have several of the old Harvey Comics he starred in back in the 60's.

I have seen in the cover, a Joe Staton interview, that's great! Cool To order and receive it I have to wait that my local Amazon locker (currently the website says it is full) will have a free slot for me!
Meanwhile, can GBF Publishing Very Happy share with us the index (or so) of issue 2? Wink

Let's see, we have features on The Inhumans, DNAgents, Infinity Inc, Sad Sack, General Jumbo, Strontium Dog, Judge Dredd, part two of the history of the Defenders, part two of The Power of Warlock, an exclusive interview with Joe Staton, a piece on Warrior and how mych of its content ended up being reprinted in the USA, some vintage comic strips featuring Four D Jones, a new adventure for GBF's creation, Hatch, a look at some of 2000 AD's greatest mistakes, and a history of British comics, amongst other things. Is that enough to whet your appetite? Very Happy

Well I'll be brief, as with issue one I really loved it Wink , very nice design, interesting articles overall, for example it was very interesting to read also the second part about Marvel's Warlock and the one about the cult UK magazine Warrior in whose pages Alan Moore's Marvelman and V For Vendetta debuted, edited at that time by old Dez Skinn, and again Hatch from  Comics Unlimited 10625 ;
I would have loved a longer one on Infinity Inc. too but I understand that CU is mostly about not so long articles to cover many topics per issue and never be "boring" Cool If only the editor in chief could change those mugshots on page one...  Cool  Very Happy Laughing

I thik Warrior still stands out as one of the finest comic magazines ever published, at the time it was truly groundbreaking. Absolutely blew me away when I was twelve years old.

The Infiity Inc article was writte several years ago for Crikey! before it bit the dust. It could have done with being updated, but that got overlooked in the scramble to get the thing out on time.

I really don't know. I stumbled upon several issues in that one store, but I don't know if other stores elsewhere may have carried it or not.
Also worth noting, the store I went to wasn't all that far from New York City (in terms of commuting) when NYC was still the major base for both DC and Marvel. Quite a few comic book professionals lived in the general area and were friends with the owner, so that may have played a part in what got stocked with some of the things like imports or smaller press items.

ONLY my experience, but I think not. I tried to find them in person and at mail-order sellers when I first found out about them, and there seemed to be very few available in the US. The people (shop owners) I talked to seemed to know about them only from the same Alan Moore articles I'd read.
I'd love to have a full run. Also of the Might World of Marvel, and plenty of other British comics. From what I've seen, they're really interesting.

I believe you can still order back issues of Warrior direct from Dez Skinn even after all these years...

This is interesting, also here the city of Bologna has always been a sort of comics capital in Italy since the Eighties and many fanzine guys and fans, then become professionals, attended the local very big comic shop, called Alessandro Distribuzioni (who has been around for almost 50 years and is still going strong); even Marvel Italy had its first headquarter based there (in Galileo Galilei's Square) current Panini head honcho started there as a comics consultant as other Panini current editors.

Thanks!!!

Please let us how it goes with this, Mike! I had been a subscriber to Dez Skinn then historic magazine, Comics International for years, a great magazine which was "destroyed" when Mr. Skinn (after publishing a great issue #200) sold it to that Mike Conroy, a Uk infamous "journalist" who ended publishing every issue months late and ended its run with issue # 207... Mad
I remember seeing almost in every issue of the original Comics International an Ad for old issues of Warrior but there was always an issue (which should be # 4 below, which contained a Marvelman story not republished by Eclipse Comics in the Usa), which was always "temporarily not available"; now it seem that it is finally available, that would be great! Cool

WOW! Thanks. I just sent an inquiry, let's see what happens.
Thanks!!!

Please let us how it goes with this, Mike! I had been a subscriber to Dez Skinn then historic magazine, Comics International for years, a great magazine which was "destroyed" when Mr. Skinn (after publishing a great issue #200) sold it to that Mike Conroy, a Uk infamous "journalist" who ended publishing every issue months late and ended its run with issue # 207... Mad
I remember seeing almost in every issue of the original Comics International an Ad for old issues of Warrior but there was always an issue (which should be # 4 below, which contained a Marvelman story not republished by Eclipse Comics in the Usa), which was always "temporarily not available"; now it seem that it is finally available, that would be great! Cool

Ah, the "Summer Special" issue! Yes, that is a great one!

I will. I just sent him money through Paypal for every available issue (one of each, anyway) and I'm really looking forward to it.
One of the things I almost never saw as a kid was the magazines comics publishers did, they were more for older readers, and I'd like to find a lot more of them.

It was actually the first issue I ever saw. Reading it prompted me to seek out the first three, and every issue afterwards. For a twelve year old, Warrior was just mindblowing.

Very cool. I did get all the issues they had (or, rather, one of each) and am now NEEDING to find the rest. Wish me luck! I want to read all of the stories.

Hey, back on topic, it seems that Comics Unlimited # 3 has been out for a while, and it features Tim Perkins, World's End, Invaders (!), War is Hell, Russ Leach, Tv Century 21 and Phantom Eagle, listed on the cover. Maybe our fearless editor, co-publisher and founder Comics Unlimited 380743 can share with us more related news? scratch Wink Cool

It was 27 pounds, but as he pointed out that is due to US policies. And it was actually a really quick delivery.

BIG SURPRISE! It seems that our fearless leader and his acolytes have produced a Special Comics Unlimited for Christmas! Which are the detailed contents of this "annual" (I have already ordered it, based on trust...! )? Wink

Got it and read it! Very Happy Nice articles about Golden Age Super-Heroes, a fun one about "Heroes who never quite made it", interesting poing of view by publisher GBF on Godzilla and so on... Cool

I'm really glad you liked this one, it was a real labour of love, quite proud of how it turned out. We intend to follow it up with a Silver Age Special soon. Comics Unlimited 403549

Well, you've covered a lot already, but I really have to mention Steven Laming's excellent look at the history of Dreadstar, and Dean Plakas looks at Asterix, a character we really should have gotten to sooner. We also have Thunderbolts, The Life and Times of Dr Doom, and possibly the greatest heroic duo ever: Dynomutt and the Blue Falcon! Very Happy

Hope to receive it soon to read all the articles, Dreadstar is one of my favourite "indy" character, too!
Asterix is a European classic, maybe not so known overseas, and articles about Thunderbolts and Dr Doom too are always interesting to read about! Cool
