Announcing... Massacre For Boys Picture Library

There's been a positive response to the launch of the Action Special (and a run of online orders, which is pleasing), but it's time now to turn our thoughts to the future and to our next release...

Massacre For Boys Picture Library will develop the anthology format a stage further, with even more participation by the top names in UK independent comics. Steve and I will stay on as contributing editors, but we'll be doing a bit less of the writing and arting, allowing the variety and the quality to flourish.

To whet your appetites, here's the first page of Zen Fusilier, a fantastic new strip by Massacre debutante Greg Meldrum and second-timer John Caliber:

We are now operating an open submissions policy, and not all slots for this comic are yet filled, so if you're a up and coming writer or artist and you have a love of British comics please feel free to get in touch. All offers in a classic British style considered, and you should make sure you are aware of the Massacre For Boys look and feel to give yourself the greatest chance of success. The best way of doing this - and supporting our efforts - is to buy a copy, but it's not obligatory and we have put plenty of material online for you to peruse at no expense.

If the comic is a hit further issues of Picture Library will follow. The first one is due out early next year. Stay tuned for more - many more - updates....
