Issue Six of Sector 13 is available to order now for shipping just after Christmas. 44 pages of story and art, this is another issue we are incredibly proud of. Simon McKnight's cosplay cover, featuirng good friends of the zine, Simon Crockett and Graham Alexander kicks things off in fine form.
Featured this time round we have a brand new fantasy story, Horse Sense, from 2000AD legend, Will Simpson. Fans of Will's work in the Galaxy's Greatest Comic are not going to want to miss him showing the imagination and skill that earned him such a key role in the development of Game of Thrones. This is something a little special!
As if that wasn't enough, we have a Misty-inspired strip written by Julia Round, author of the acclaimed "Gothic for Girls", a comprehensive and insightful book on the much loved girls's comic.
Julia brought all her understanding of what made Misty tick to the crafting of this tale and in Morgan Brinksman we had the perfect artist to bring it to life.
This is something very special, you can read more details on our 'news' tab and see how to get a 20% discount on "Gothic for Girls" from the publisher.
And 'c'mere, there's more', this issue also continues the story of the Sector 13 Judges with art by Scott Twells (including one of my favourite pages ever to appear in the zine. Ed.) and Laurence McKenna who's skill at forging the photstories increases with each issue.
W D McQuaid and Patrick Brown introduce new SD agents, Cameo and Hurt-box in the first of what we hope will be an onging series of adventures.
We also have the welcome return of Cat Byrne, whose art in the last issue gathered a lot of attention. This time Cat adds her skills to a story by Glenn Matchett that has delighted everyone who has seen it.
The issue is filled out with a strip by two newcomers to Sector 13, Ed Whiting and Mike Slattery bring us a future shock named, 'Lethal Weapons' that we think you are going to like.

"It's a ludicrously solid read, with thrills, humour and theological discussion. I genuinely think that several strips
would be very at home if you found them in 2000AD itself"
Alan Holloway, The Imaginarium Blog
