Re: Issue 1

Well, I would whole-heartedly agree that you should check it out. But then I'm biased when I say it's the best British comic currently available for 7-11 year olds...because I'm a contributor! I'm slightly baffled that TM can't get the stock and I'll chat to the editorial team on Monday. There shoul...

Re: Issue 1

It also seems quite odd that the shop found it difficult to get copies. It's not very difficult!

Sadly, despite some really interesting posts and comments, this thread is getting mired in very poorly reasoned, uninformed con...

Re: Issue 1

To the conspiracy theorists out there: there is no scam, just a few unfortunate bugs in the works which appear to be getting rectified. Some good news. Firstly, a cracking review by Richard and (more importantly) his daughter Molly over on the Forbidden Planet blog, here: http://forbiddenplanet.co.u...

In fact, I'd be very interested to read what others think of the all-important stories. I think the content is amazingly good. What do you reckon? In terms of ...

Re: Issue 1

This is my first post on Comics UK: I've found my way to the site via Lew's excellent blog. So, firstly disclosure: I'm a contributor to The Phoenix. I draw the editorial characters who appear every week. So you could say I have a vested interest in this thread! Secondly, I'm amazed and delighted th...
