DOCTOR RADAR arrives in the UK

Well this looks interesting. As well as producing a fleet of home-grown comics, British publisher Titan Comics are now translating some European comics for the UK and American market under their Statix Press imprint. One such comic, Doctor Radar No.1, arrives in comic book stores this Wednesday (22nd November).

Originally published in French in 2014, Doctor Radar is written by Noël Simsolo with art by Bezian. I really like the look of Bezian's art and will be buying it on the strength of that alone. The story looks intriguing too. Here's a preview...

Paris, 1920. A gentleman detective plays a deadly game with a criminal mastermind, Doctor Radar, while investigating a series of horrific deaths!An atmospheric masterpiece perfect for the fans of pulp noir and deadly criminal masterminds!“Doctor Radar is a surrealistic, riveting, beautifully executed thriller unlike anything else I’ve ever read.” – Joe Keatinge (‘Shutter’, ‘Flavor’, ‘Ringside’)

Covers by Bezian, with a variant cover to No.1 by Francesco Francavilla.

Simpsons Christmas issue!

The Christmas issue of Titan's UK Simpsons Comics arrived in newsagents last Thursday, and here's the festive cover! You'll find it in WH Smith and selected other shops. 76 full colour pages full of Christmas strips for £3.99. For more info, visit the publisher's website here:

I'll be showing the covers of as many of the latest Christmas issues of British comics as I can. Not that there'll be many, unfortunately! I've recently completed the Christmas stories for Toxic, Epic, and Doctor Who Magazine though, so that's three I'll be plugging here over the next few weeks!

Meanwhile, on my OTHER blog...

If you're new to the Blimey! blog you may not know that I have another blog I regularly update too. That's lewstringercomics, which is focused on my own comics work, covering all the news about my current strips as well as showing material I've done over the 34 years of my career (and sometimes even material older than that from my fanzine days). 

If you're interested, hop over there and have a rummage around to see the various stuff I've posted over the years! Thanks for your time.

Poll results

I recently ran polls on my Twitter account and on here, to see how often people visited my blog. Not that many people voted unfortunately, but here's the results. Firstly the Twitter poll...

...now the poll I posted here...
I'm pleased that most of you who voted visit regularly, although on average it's not every day so there will be changes to Blimey! in 2018. I won't be posting as often for one thing, and other changes will be considered too. I'll tell you more about that at a later date.

Thanks for your votes. I hope you continue to enjoy this blog however often you visit.
