A project worth checking out and supporting!

My friend Wei, the artist who did issue 6’s Cherry Blossom Girl mini-comic, is seeking funding for his new comic project Windrush. The first issue came out earlier this year, and it is amazing – and it’s only going to get better! If you fancy supporting something interesting, please give it a go! (You basically pay money for stuff you will actually receive!) http://www.indiegogo.com/windrush

Press for the Spandex book

I forgot to mention some cool press stuff on here! The Spandex book was featured in The Guardian’s Guide magazine a couple of Saturdays ago – so cool!

Then there was a feature in The Croydon Guardian, and today the Scottish List magazine has a feature on their website (http://www.list.co.uk/article/41701-artist-martin-eden-on-lgbt-comic-spandex/) and it should be in their physical edition soon – woo hooo!

How to get the Spandex book!

Issue 6 review on Broken Frontier website!

Lovely review of Issue 6 on the Broken Frontier website, here!

Extract: ‘Martin Eden had expended this issue’s WTF?-quota, however, you get to this issue’s final page and the whoa-didn’t-see-that-coming factor is ramped up into overdrive…’

(Also, do check out Mardou’s ‘Sky in Stereo’ comic if you can – it’s awesome)

Thanks to Andy Oliver!

Issue 6 review on the Comics Bulletin website!

Lovely review of Spandex Issue 6 at the Comics Bulletin website. It’s here, but here is a short extract: ‘This is one ballsy, gutsy comic.
