There's a new issue of Judge Dredd Megazine arriving in the shops on Wednesday (21st November). This time the cover is a wraparound by the amazing Phil Winslade who is creating some fantastic work every month on the Lawless strip. Phil's one of the best artists in the business, so if anyone thinks modern comics are somehow inferior to those of decades ago, think again and check it out. 

In fact, the Megazine hits a high standard every issue with its roster of talented creators. Definitely a comic you should be buying.

This issue there's a tribute to the king of the 2000ADverse, Carlos Ezquerra, who sadly passed away recently. As well as a feature on his distinguished career there's also a comic bagged with the Megazine, reprinting some of his classic triumphs.

Cover preview: INFINITY No.15

Here's the cover to Infinity No.15, which arrives in shops on 6th December. Infinity is my favourite media magazine, as it covers a wide range of retro material. As you can see from this cover, next issue brings us features on Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Stan Lee, Action Transfers, and more! 'The Story of Comics' sounds interesting. How are they going to fit over 100 years of history from Ally Sloper to The Phoenix into one article? Worth checking out for that alone!

Infinity is on sale in WH Smith (and some comic shops too I believe) and is published every six weeks for just £3.99 an issue. You should find it next to SFX, Doctor Who Magazine, and 2000AD. Check out their Facebook page here:
