Coming in 2007...
New comics arriving in early 2007:
Shaun the Sheep Comic No.1 hits the shelves in March, published by Titan, as a companion comic to their popular Wallace & Gromit Comic. The format is the same as W&G; 52 colour pages including brand new comic strips and features.
Also that month from Titan, Superman returns to British newsagents in the first issue of a 76 page monthly. In the same format as Panini comics such as Mighty World of Marvel and Titan's recent re-launch of Batman Legends the title will contain three Superman strips, including Grant Morrison and Frank Quietley's All-Star Superman.
Around the same time, small press publisher Spitfire Comics will be bringing us The Collected Hook Jaw Volume 1, reprinting the gore-filled adventures of the killer shark from Action comic of 31 years ago!
Another project that should please all fans of UK comics is a tv documentary series on the history of British comics. It'll appear on BBC 4 sometime in 2007 and from all accounts sounds very promising, including interviews with key figures in the industry. More news on this exciting project in the weeks to come.
