ComicScene UK in all Forbidden Planet shops

Post by tonyf33 » 27 Apr 2018, 09:17

As soon as we announced ComicScene UK as a subscription only magazine we were asked by many of you if a comic magazine about comics could be on sale in comic shops?

Well now it is - you can get ComicScene UK in all Forbidden Planet Stores in the UK and add it to your standing orders. You can also get it at OK Comics in Leeds, First Age Comics in Lancaster and online at

The full story is here ... cscene-uk/

You can get the magazine digitally (it reads like a magazine on all electronic devices) at

You can also get a six or twelve month subscription with additional benefits including an advance pdf of each issue, gifts, offers and in the first monthly August issue twelve month subscribers will get a membership card too!

If we reach our desired number of subscribers / issues sold on a monthly basis we can start funding comic workshops for young people too, so your support is very much appreciated.

Finally we are now selling advertising for the first issue too, at very modest and introductory prices at

The magazine launches on 1st May and we very much hope you enjoy it. Each month a sample of subscribers will be sent a link to a survey to identify their favourite articles and ideas for the future. Here's how you can get your copy all in one place

FPI Belfast had it as part of their FCBD selection, so guess who didn't need to be asked twice? :)
