So yeah, as you may have read, we launched the almighty fuck out of issue 5 ‘Fad Deity’ at the Cardiff Con, and now dear reader you can grab it from our Issues section! And what’s more, you can now pre-order issue 6 which will be landing in about four months time! And you can order Neil Alexander’s wicked issue 4 variant cover! This is clearly too exciting, and I can’t breathe! *gasps*

Yes that’s right folks! The weekend just past saw the Lou Scannon crew once again in attendance at the biggest comic con Cardiff has to offer.
Issue five of the comic “Fad Deity” was launched and we couldn’t have been happier with how well it was received. Already it has received a lot of positive feedback and for that we are truly grateful.
Cardiff Expo seems to be getting busier and busier with each passing year with the quality of small press titles that are coming out just continuing to impress us. A special mention should be made as well of the fantastic job the organisers do every single time. It truly is a wonderful, friendly, well organised con and we thoroughly enjoy exhibiting there every single time. Thanks guys!
We got the chance to catch up with our good friends who work on other small press titles such as “Stiffs“, “The Pride“, “Razarhawk” (Issue 1 launched at the con and went down a storm) and “Moon“. All are great titles that we think are worth you checking out. Also exhibiting there were the “Cape Killer” guys who do some awesome geeky themed t-shirts you should get your mitts on!
The first print of Issue 4 “Predator” sold out at the expo too so we will shortly be re-releasing it with a new variant cover beautifully drawn up by Scannon friend Neil Alexander
Also, we have had a beautiful variant cover drawn for issue five on its next print run which has been drawn by long term friend of the Scannon crew, Rob Jackson. Anyone interested at a sneak peek at that cover can catch a glimpse of it here.
One other thing that it is our great pleasure to announce as well is that with issue five, we have a new member to the team! Taking on lettering duties from issue five is the supremely talented letterer HdE. We’d like to thank him for signing on and we think you’ll agree he has done a bang up job with “Fad Deity”.
That should just about do it for now I think! I’m sure I have missed something out but I’ll get told off for that soon enough. We’d like to thank everyone who came to see us on the weekend and especially like to thank you for the continued support. As long as you guys are getting a kick out of them, we’ll keep making them.
If you missed us at Cardiff, Team Scannon WILL be in attendance at the Bristol Comic Expo. More on that as it comes.
*EDIT AFTER HAVING MY WRIST SLAPPED: I can’t believe I forgot this but a big thank you should also be made to the lovely (No gun to my head… honest) Kirsty who put up Team Scannon for the whole weekend! Sorry KW! We love you!
