Inspired by Wham!, Smash! and Pow!, the comics of, S13 Editor, Peter Duncan's childhood, Whapp!, Splank! and Yow! are three new titles launched at Enniskillen Comicsfest on 8th and 9th June, 2024 and provided almost 200 pages of superb comics.

 

Created to benefit, 'NHS Charities Together', all proceeds after printing and postage costs will go to the charity. The token payments made to writers and artists were funded from the sale of some choice books from the editors' extensive comics collection.

 

Anthology titles, very much like their sixties inspiration, all three comics are filled with humour and adventure strips with more than the usual touch of the surreal.

 

Highlights include strips from Nigel Parkinson, the current 'Dennis the Menace' artists and Dave Windett, who has worked for almost every humour comics you have ever heard of.  There are strips from the award-winning team of Metaphrog, and from Kek-W of 2000 AD fame. Gary Whitlock and Joseph McCafferty produce some superb art on my own Cthulhu Kids stories while Joseph does double duty on a brace of traditional war tales. One is written by Enniskillen Comics Fest organiser, Paul Trimble, while the other is a prose story by former 2000 Ad and Battle editor, Steve MacManus.

 

And there are pages and pages of strips by our own Davy Francis, star of Oink back in the day

 

 The three books come in different formats. Whapp is a 32 page, oversized 'summer special'.  Just right for full page spreads and pages that needed that little bit of extra room to look especially spectacular. Watch for Jospeh Parangue, Scott Twells and, some spectacular work from Davy Francis.  Covers and centre-spread by Nigel Parkinson

 

Yow! is an A5 digest comic, with stories specially designed for the format.  52 pages, with some extra surreal strips from Julius Howe, Pete Howard and Keith Mcveigh and amazing art from Rob Anthony, Adam Brown and Ste Chinnock among others. That Davy Francis guy appears here as well

 

Splank! is the book we've been working on for a long time. A4, softcover square-bound book , a chunky 112 pages. Packed with superb stories and art.  We pulled out all the stops here and we're very proud of what our writers and artists have done.

 

Like the first issue, Splank! and its sister titles are suitable for kids, but suitable in a very interesting way.  There is information on classical composers, the Dada art movement and the nicest anarchist anyone ever met, all mixed with slapstick and dad jokes.

 

I was delighted to be able include the Metaphrog team, who have reinvented children's graphic novels and Stref, who is about to publish Tara Togs, a return to out and out adventure in graphic novels.  

 

In case it hasn't come over, I am incredibly proud of these books, and want to thank everyone involved.   And even if its not your sort of thing, I hope you will consider making a donation to  'NHS Charities Together' at my Justgiving page.

S13: ANNO DOMINI 1900

 

Available now for pre-order, the first issue of S13, our new themed anthology title.  We start with 'Anno Domini 1900'. A comic which imagines what a publication might have looked like, had a far-sighted publisher in 1877 thought to combine the hugly popular scientific romances of Jules Verne, with the talents of the greatest artists of his day to produce something new and exciting.

 

With stories by Kek-W and John Smith, each famous for their contributions to 2000 AD, and Julia Round, the comics academic who, quite literally, wrote the book on Misty you know that we have an outstanding writing team behind us. 

 

Paddy Brown delivers his best work yet, writing and drawing 'Penny Blood', and we introduce Pete Howard with his wonderfully funny 'Penguin's Tale' (Pete knows how to please his editor) illustrated by Adam Brown who you'll be seeing a lot of in the near future.

 

We're thrilled to be working with Mal Earl, a creator willing to experiment with different styles of storytelling as he continues his Radclyffe epic, and Diego Guerra, who supplied our stunning cover and a brilliant ten page story inside, that really tries to get into the mind of the people of the 1870's and looks incredible.

 

We're also unreasonably proud of our whole art team this time round. Alongside Paddy, Mal, Adam and Diego we have Italian artist Mauro Longhini, who brings a new dimension to B&W.  Scott Twells is at his inventive and psychedelic best and Pau Scorpi's layouts, designs and colour palatte have brought an unexpected and atmospheric grace to a very strange John Smith epic.

 

Finally, and a big personal thrill for me, Mark Bennington who worked for practically every humour comic at some stage in the eighties and nineties has written and drawn a superb single page strip for us.   With spot illustrations from Hunt Emerson and an inside back cover from David Hitchcock it is, without any doubt, our best package yet.

 

68 pages, A4.  £13 inc UK P&P.  Available to pre-order now, for delivery last week of May/ beginning of June. First public showing will be at Enniskillen Comics Fest on 8th and 9th of June.

 

Your support by placing a pre-order would be really appreciated, think of it as a Kickstarter without the faff (and the fees), it will help us with the printing bills, which are going to be hefty in the next few weeks, as this is not the only comic we'll be launching before Enniskillen.

LIMITED EDITION ASHCANS

 

In preparing the first issue of 'S13, Anno Domini 1900', we produced a very limited number of 'Ashcan' editions'  to help make decisions about paper weight, paper type and what type of binding we would use. Where possible, we removed all dialogue and captions from strips so as to show off the superb artwork to best effect.

 

We have decided to make a very small number of copies of these ashcans available now, holding the rest back for sale at Enniskillen Comics Fest.

 

There are two different editions available, both have the same contents, but Ashcan A is stapled and uses silk paper throughout, while Ashcan B is perfect (square) bound and printed on uncoated paper.  Price will be £19 inc UK P&P or £28 if bought with a pre-order for the first issue proper (in which case both will be delivered, together, in late May, early June.)

 

Numbers of these items are very limited, so if you are interested in buying one of these oddities of comics production, please contact us at admin@sector13comics.co.uk and we will forward an individual payment link.  We will reserve a small number of ashcans for Enniskillen Comics Fest.

Patrick Brown Comics

Paddy Brown, is a big part of the Sector 13 Comics editorial team, he's been invovled with the zine from the beginning as an artist, letterer, occasional writer and designer.  Indeed Paddy has been producing comics since long before Sector 13 started.  
 
His best known works, both rendered in stylish red ink are re-tellings of stories from the Ulster Cycle of stories. Books that have drawn praise from accademics for their authenticity and from readers for their entertainment value.

 

Paddy says,  "The Cattle Raid of Cooley is a 270-page graphic novel based on the ancient Irish epic. You may have heard of the hero Cú Chulainn, well, this is his story. Ulster's been invaded by queen Medb of Connacht, in winter when the Ulster army's been stood down. Their only defence is teenage rookie border guard Cú Chulainn challenging them to single combat - and thanks to the interference of a couple of gods, his ordeal is going to last a lot longer than he expects". (£20 plus P&P)
 
Ness is prequel to the Cattle Raid, starring Cú Chulainn's grandmother in her youth. When her father, the king of Ulster, is powerless to stop a murderous outlaw, she turns outlaw herself to track him down. A shorter story, complete in 72 pages. (£6 plus P&P)
 
Both drawn in red ink in a style derived as much from classic book illustration as comic art. Follow the link to Paddy's online storefront: Here
