Crikey! No.14 - Out this week!
Despite the financial collapse of the Borders chain of stores, Crikey! magazine has managed to soldier on without High Street distribution and the 14th issue of the magazine of British comics is out this week.
Behind a fabulous cover by Bryan Talbot (and a three page strip by Bryan reprinted from The Guardian's Guide magazine) the issue includes articles on The Perishers (now back in the Daily Mirror), Alfred Bestall's Rupert, commemorating the 60th anniversary of Eagle No.1 by one of its original readers, interviews with Bryan Talbot and myself and much more. (Unfortunately they chose to illustrate my interview with some very old and crudely drawn material and an Oink! cover I didn't even draw, despite being sent a variety of scans of my work. At least the Brickman page they used was from the 21st Century.)
Crikey! No.14 will be available from many comic specialist shops or you could order it directly from the publishers by subscribing here:
