I first came across Shea when Alexander Finbow approached me. I have Previewed and Reviewed books from Renegade Arts Entertainment before and he wondered if I was interested in some more recent examples.
Renegade Arts are based in Canada and publish quality creator owned projects.
I really like to sorry Independant publishers and Alexander has always been great with communication so I was delighted to say “yes”.
So I reviewed Necromantic by Lovern Kindzierski, David Ross, Geof Isherwood, Christopher Chucky & Taylor Esposito and ABC of Monstrosity by Shea Proulx.
ABC of Monstrosity is currently on Kickstarter instead if being at Conventions.
I’ve done quite a few interviews but haven’t done one for quite a while so Iput a call out on Twitter to see who might want an Interview and Shea volunteered. Continue reading →
The more Eagle-eyed reader might spot a difference this week.
Last Week I covered 22nd to 28th June. This week I’m starting on 28 June. I realised that publishing on Sunday was restricting me a little as I was including the day I published. So from now I will cover the previous Sunday to Saturday. That way if I learn something after publishing I don’t need to squeeze it in to Monday…
I’m aware no one reading this would know I had fudged it… but if it troubled me when I realised.
This article won’t double up on anything I learnt on 28th…
You may also have noticed I have dropped the ‘th’ in the date format. I am doing this as I am aware non-native English Speakers sometimes struggle with ‘st’ and ‘nd’. Dates are clear enough without them. I use Month name to avoid International/US date convention confusion.
Hardly a surprise that as a fan of 2000AD and Judge Dredd from the start the news of this Live Event is extremely interesting to me
This blog started life for a Judge Dredd online RPG which stumbled and fell. I’d previously been one of the Games Masters and Players on Play Dredd RPG Forum which had folded and hoped to continue.
Then the 2012 Dredd film by Alex Garland came along and I went to the Fan Pre-release Screening in London. Had a brilliant day and saw a film which brought the feel of the comic to the screen, something I felt the 1995 Stallone movie had failed to do.
So this blog became a Review & Preview blog for Films, Comics and Books with an unapologetic bias towards Judge Dredd, 2000AD and British Indie Comics. That’s not to say I don’t Review and Preview International comics. I’ve branched out very widely since starting, writing about History, Science & Nature, Mental Health and other topics.
My main focus though is likely to always be Judge Dredd.
