Spandex #7 – 9 out of 10 from Starburst Magazine!

Woo hoo, Spandex #7 gets 9 out of 10 from the Starburst Magazine guys!
The review is here: http://www.starburstmagazine.com/reviews/comic-reviews/4323-comic-review-spandex-7
And they say: ‘Spandex is one of the best original superhero comics in years. More than that, it’s actually better than a lot of the stuff the Big Two is putting out at the moment.’

Spandex Black & White overview

Spandex 7: The FPI Verdict!

Yay, the Forbidden Planet International blog site say they like Spandex #7 and have published a lovely, positive review! I like the way they don’t spoil things, but they hugely tease things! You can check it out here:

Those guys have been overwhelmingly supportive of me and my comics for a long time, so big, big thanks to them.
Here’s one of my favourite bits of the feature:
‘Spandex delivers classic, well-intentioned superhero tales of old, yet cleverly wraps them up in modern trappings, this is classic superhero soap-opera a la Stan & Jack or Chris Claremont or John Byrne with added adult sensibility. The sexuality is treated, quite rightly, as simply another thing going on in their lives – these are people who are gay and are superheroes, not gay superheroes. The distinction is not just important, it’s the core of what makes Spandex work.’

Momb-cast mention!

The lovely chaps (and chapess) at the MOMBcast mention Spandex as one of their favourite comics of 2012 and say that Spandex #7 was a “punch in the gut” (oops, sorry about that, Jane hehe)!
Yay!
I love these guys, they should have their own TV show. You can check it all out heeere (and I highly recommend checking it out every week):

And here’s an extract:
‘If Marvel and DC were still publishing comics as good as this then I wouldn’t have largely walked away from their output.’

Happy New Year from Diva, Spandex and Martin!
