The new issue of Comics Unlimited, # 5 has already been published and is available on Amzn but, for some reason, from this old Pc I'm writing now, I can't find its cover, so we count on our fearless leader for images and official solicitation...  Comics Unlimited - Page 2 1f60e
Also, seeing from my phone App, Amzn list as authors GBF as always, Daphne Lage (who?!?)  Comics Unlimited - Page 2 1f601 and Grant Lankard  Question , who are these two guys?  Comics Unlimited - Page 2 1f604
And, above all, where is our Big Boss? Why isn't he listed as Big Contributor?  Comics Unlimited - Page 2 1f62f

Amazon seem to just list three or four random contributors if the list is longer than that. All the regulars are still in there, never fear! Very Happy

Well, I can tell you that it contains the last part of my six part rundown of the history of the Defenders, as well as features on Howard Chaykin's Cody Starbuck, legendary British artist Don Lawrence, Alan Moore's classic Swamp Thing story The Anatomy Lesson, the sixties explois of Batman, Strangehaven, the Steel Claw, the Secret Society of Super Villains, Steve Gerber, Lady Satan, and possibly the oddest Lois Lane story ever told, "I Am Curious (Black)"!
I can also tell you it's been a nightmare to et out there, as an Amazon UK glitch meant that it was showing as visible on the site as far as we were concerned, but for close to 24 hours it wasn't showing in anyone's search results...

Thank you very much for your complete info, Tony!  Wink I'm glad I'll find on CU another part of the Defenders history, Alan Moore's seminal Swamp Thing story and much more, like the SSOSV, the much missed Steve Gerber Comics Unlimited - Page 2 1f60d and even....Lady Satan?!? Comics Unlimited - Page 2 1f632 In Italy in the Eighties we had the short lived Lady Cruel, but it was a BDSM comic published maybe years before its time... Rolling Eyes
In fact I have been searching for CU since the 7 of this month, when usually the new (bi-montly, of course) issue is visible... cyclops

I believe Glenn is considering offering subscriptions. He wanted to test the waters for a few months first, to see if it sold.

Unfortunately, yes. We'd been waiting on a couple of lengthy articles but the contributor in question has been hit by unforseen circumstances. As a result, the next issue (which should be out in the next week or so) will be rather shorter (and consequently cheaper) than usual...

Well, we have a look back at the career of the great Ron Embleton, for one thing, an artist who really deserves to be better remembered, and a piece on wrestling in comics which is possibly one of the strangest subjects I can recall editing. I'm continuing my gradual slog through the history of the JSA with the Silver Age, and also looking at just how misguided some of DC's attempts to be socially aware were back then, and we have a retrospective on the original X-Men as well as a look at one of Stan Lee's weirder Ideas, Nightcat. It's a bit of a mixed bag, but hopefully an interesting one...

When I first clicked on your link I went to Amzn Uk page and the price was only £ 5.00 and Iwas happy about that! 😀
Then I saw the price in Italian page and it was about € 7.85 much lesser than previous issues but then saw it has "only" 56 pages🤓 is this only for this issue or also the future ones will be...slimmer? 🤔

Basically, a couple of articles fell through because one of our regular contributors had a family crisis, so it was a case of either delaying publication even mire or putting outa slimmer issue at a reduced price. We're hoping he'll be back in harness after the next issue.

It's due out iun the next week or so. The delay was caused partly by articles arriving late and partly by the fact that publisher Glenn Fleming, who puts the whole thing together, was in the final push to get his forthcoming book on Jack Kirby ready for publication. There is other news, though; issue 8 is intended to be the last of volume one. The magazine is, if all goes well, about to be revamped and relaunched on a more international footing, thanks to investment secured from the USA. More news as I get it.

Well, we have an in-depth look at the earliest adventures of 2000 AD's own Strontium Dog Comics Unlimited - Page 2 185586  and also take a trip into the sometimes slightly bizarre world of Earth B, as well as  retrospective of the career of artist Mike Noble. There's a look at the early years of Marvel UK, and also at one of its longest running titles, the frequently renamed Spider-Man weekly. Then, there's a piece on American 2000 AD reprints, Spellbinder, and a reprint of a piece on the British Invasion of DC Comics, mostly because very few people ever saw it first time around in the solitary Crikey! digital special. And we catch up with New York based former Conan writer Charles Santino, who has just launched a new project of his own. How does that sound for starters?

Yep, now available on Amazon, and yes, at the last minute the decision was taken to retain the original numbering. This issue is longer than the last couple, over 80 pages, and includes tributes to the late Neal Adams, Ian Kennedy, Frank Hampson and George Perez, plus features on the 1970's All-Star Comics/JSA revival and Roy Thomas's All-Star Squadron, the Frightful Four, Marvel UK's Hulk Comic, Dan Dare, a look at depictions of women in comics, Fleetway's short lived and highly political eighties title Crisis, and a look at a now highly un-politically correct issue of DC's Metal Men, amongst other things. Plus, another chance to read a feature on Enrique Romero's classic character Axa, previously seen in Crikey! #9, but presented here in colour for the first time. I'm actually quite proud of this one.

It is indeed, part one of a two part history of that publisher. Elsewhere in this more than 100 page issue, we have some new original strip content in Realmer: Planet X and the return of Glenn Fleming's comedic creation Hatch, independent comics producer Daphne Lage talks about her new project, there are obituaries for the late Garry Leach, Alan Grant and Tim Sale, Steve Hooker looks back at the work of Jim Steranko, and yours truly looks back at Atlas Seaboard Comics, Justice League International, 2000 AD's M.A.C.H. One and Robo-Hunter, Roy Thomas's Young All-Stars, and the career of British comics humour artist Ken Reid. And that's still not all of it! I really think this is one of the best issues we've put out so far.

That's what we're aiming for. Roughly a quarter of the next issue is currently done.
