San Diego Comic-Con: Booth 1806!
We normally don’t promote Kickstarters here at ECBT…but now and again we make exceptions. This is one and it’s glorious!
Q: What is SPACE BASTARDS?
A: It’s everything 2000ad should be.
This is a massive tome of a book. Just over a foot in height! This is the only way to read SPACE BASTARDS and is exactly how the authors intended — presented in a huge over-sized book so you can pour over every detail!
That’s right. And these guys didn’t stop after making one comic. They didn’t stop after making the first hardcover. So far, they have produced a year’s worth of content (over 500 pages) in collaboration with their artistic heroes, namely:
Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys, Happy!)
Simon Bisley (Lobo, Slaine, Heavy Metal)
Boo Cook (Elephantmen, Judge Anderson)
Colin MacNeil (America, Judge Dredd)
Clint Langley (ABC Warriors, 2000AD, Marvel)
Glenn Fabry (Slaine, 2000AD, Marvel)

KickStarter: SPACE BASTARDS!
New UK magazine about comics hits the stands. First issue focusing on female creators and ‘Girls’ Comics. Some really great articles and, of course, a column by Uncle Pat!
Tiptoeing around the minefield that is the debate over this all female creator issue and the accusations of tokensim and exploitation, Luke checks out this year’s Sci Fi Special and finds it wanting.
Those chaps over at Vice Press have a new print coming this Thursday. It’s a Dark Judges one by John McCrea and coloured by John Kalisz.

Make sure to visit their site this Thursday, for the official release and see what deals they have, as they are doing bundles with this print. More on the bundles on the actual day!

Luke’s reading pile next to the marital bed is growing ever higher. Risking life threatening injury, he picks out 2000AD’s contribution to this year’s Free Comic “Book”( if you must) Day. Is it a worthy attempt to snare new readers? Or just a vain bid at drawing attention to the Prog’ and a dry run in a longer term plan to refocus the title?
