Yes indeed – the five issues of Scannon available to date (see HERE) have all been reviewed by the exceedingly beautiful chaps at A Place to Hang Your Cape. Did they like it? Did they hate it? We ain’t telling! Read on people –> http://ap2hyc.com/?p=7263

Yep – Lou Scannon has hit the Midlands! The book is now on sale at ‘Computers & Comics’ (http://computersandcomics.com)!
Somewhat embarrasingly, as we write this post they’ve already just about sold out. But more copies will be on their way soon!
Also – Computers and Comics have also reviewed books 1 thru 4 as well! Check that out here – http://computersandcomics.com/
Yep, you read rightly. Issues 1 through 4 are all now available and in-stock at Fish 4 Comics in Cardiff (just off the Gabalfa roundabout) and also at Forbidden Planet Cardiff (opposite the castle). Just thought we’d let you know!
With Issue 4 due back from the printers literally ANY SECOND NOW, we thought it’d be a good time to pull together some recent reviews of the books!
First of all, we’ve a review of issues 1 thru 4 at Fanboy Comics. Fair to say it’s not our most glowing review, but it is fairly positive.
Next up, again reviewing all issues to date, is Geek Syndicate. Happy to say we fared somewhat better here!
And last but certainly not least, Comics Anonymous have perused issue 4 and given it the once over – and thankfully it has not been found wanting!
Hey people! If you’ve not yet taken a punt on the comic, and would like to see what sort of bang you’ll get for yer buck, we’ve now added a 6 page preview of every comic currently available – just head on over to the Issues page, and a preview PDF is downloadable for issues 1, 2 & 3. Have a goosey!
Also, 2000AD artist Mike Collins whipped us up a fantastic Lou Scannon sketch – Thanks Mike!
A brief update on issue 4 – we’re running a wee bit behind due to some pesky real-life issues, but we’re gunning to try and get this sucker into your grubby little hands by the end of August. Scouts honour.
Also, Kris will be a guest at the Auto Assembly 2012 Transformers Convention this weekend (Aug 3, 4 & 5) on account of him having worked on Transformers over the years, and he’ll be a-sketching and have Scannon issues 1 thru 3 for sale (along with a preview of 4 so far if anyone’s interested), so feel free to harass him there. More info on AA2012 can be found here.
Bit of a general update for all you Lounatics out there! Issue 4 is now thoroughly under way, and once we’ve a few more completed pages done, we’ll try and post up some decent previews…
In preparation for Bristol Comic Con on May 12th, we’ve got new printings of issues 2 and 3 readied, and also a new printing of issue 1 with a final variant cover by Gavin “Evo” Evans!
Dan and Kris (and hopefully superstar Obi-Wan Kenobi lookalike cover artist Gav Mitchell) will be attending the Eagle Awards at the MCM Expo at the end of May. They’ll be there drinking to Lou Scannon’s ‘Favourite British Black and White Comic’ nomination! Wish us luck!
And don’t forget, while we’re beavering away on issue 4 ready for July, you can still order Issue 3 right on this very site, or you can still grab copies in person at Orbital Comics in London (www.orbitalcomics.com) and at Fish 4 Comics in Cardiff (http://www.fish4comics.com)
The 2012 Eagle Awards are fast approaching, and voting ends for all the nominations on Monday April 2nd. Which is less than a week away!
‘Lou Scannon’ is up for ‘Favourite British Black & White Comic’, and we’d really appreciate your vote here: http://www.eagleawards.co.uk/nominations/
But we’re not just going to blindly ask you to vote for something without knowing what it is you’re voting for! Now we know a lot of you have read the books already, but if you’re on the fence, then feast your optical bits upon the 6-page previews for issues 1,2 & 3 below, and if you like what you see then chuck a vote our way. And if you fancy picking up an issue, then by all means do!
Thanks for your support so far everyone – please help us take Lou even higher!

On January 1st 2012 the nominations round for the Eagle Awards 2012 opened with people free to put forward their ideas of who deserved what awards within the comics industry this year. We were lucky enough to be nominated in a few different categories:
Dan Harris for best penciller
Kris Carter for best colourist
Lou Scannon for best British black and white comic
Now, the Eagle awards started back in 1976 and is the comics industry’s longest established awards so of course, to even be considered by anyone for nomination in the first place was a great honour for us!
Now the round of nominations has finished and it comes down to the actual voting process and amazingly Lou Scannon has made it through to be nominated alongside such industry giants as “Commando” and “Viz”!!
There is a lot of talent out there so to get this far is amazing and we thank every single person who has helped us to get here. I’m actually close to quoting the speech Wayne gives in the communist bar in “Wayne’s World 2” just to emphasise how happy we are.
A big thank you once more to all of you and for those of you who may not have known about the Eagle Awards or may have known about them but not that we had been nominated, you can go and vote here: http://www.eagleawards.co.uk/nominations/
You don’t have much time though! Voting started today and ends on April 2nd so much love to those of you who do vote!
