The unseen Warrior!

Every comic starts with an idea, and often with a "dummy issue" to give publishers or distributors an idea of what it'll look like. Those dummy issues are often quite different to the end product, and can utilise edited material from other comics just to give a flavour of the style of content. Once approved, the dummy issues are forgotten, and never released to the public, as work commences on production of the actual comic that will be issue one.

Well, now you can see what the dummy issue of Warrior was like, way back in 1982. Dez Skinn has published it (which he's titled No.0) in a limited quantity that you can order by post directly from him. Payment to be made by PayPal to Dezskinn1@yahoo.co.uk for £15.95 plus £2.00 UK postage, or by postal order (uncrossed) made payable to Quality. Details are on the supplied graphic below...

Dez has also set up a Warrior Facebook page which gives updates on the project and I'm sure he'll answer any queries you might have:

My copy has already been ordered.

I have always felt that Warrior had been cut off before it reaches its prime.

Possibly, but if you read Dez Skinn’s account in George Khoury’s book about Miracleman, it’s days were numbered from pretty early on. It didn’t sell.

It faced a harsh landscape really. The traditional comics were dying off, and the adult market hadn't really developed in the UK at that point. (Undergrounds excepted.) I think it did remarkably well considering, and personally I loved those early issues. I still remember the excitement of buying issue 1... and I was about 23 at the time! :)
