Yep – Lou Scannon has hit the Midlands! The book is now on sale at ‘Computers & Comics’ (!

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!

Previews to Issues 1, 2 and 3 added, plus a Brill Sketch!

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.


A Small Update…

May 2nd, 2012 No Comments

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 ( and at Fish 4 Comics in Cardiff (

Issue 3 Variant Cover Revealed!

March 14th, 2012 No Comments

The original print run of issue 3 is pretty much sold out, with literally two or three copies remaining. As per usual, we’ve got a new cover lined up for the next print run, this time provided by Chris Phillips (with colours by Kris Carter), another indie comic artist who runs the ‘Candleman’ and ‘The Moose’ comics – see his site here. This won’t see print for another week or two, but in the meantime feast your eyes upon this bad-ass new cover for issue 3.

And don’t forget, we’re still coveting your votes for the Eagle Awards 2012 here. Help us o’loyal readership! Spread the word!
