the phoenix comic issue ZERO just arrived!

I can hardly take it, too much comics goodness!!! :D It's like the DFC, but new and improved and no adverts, and wow, isn't that a wonderful envelope?! Presenting... The Phoenix Comic!

A subscription to this weekly magazine would make an absolutely perfect Christmas gift for anyone, say, age 8 to age 99 (although possibly a bit older, I don't want to be ageist). And anyone who wants to support GOOD COMICS BEING MADE RIGHT NOW IN BRITAIN, this is your moment! DO IT. (I did it and shelled out, I'm not getting a free subscription. Although a friend and I do have plans to contribute... more on that later.)

You can even learn how to make comics yourself! Here's a peek at a guide by the fab Neill Cameron, who draws robots and dinosaurs like a dream... oh, and did I mention that he also leads stellar comics workshops? As do many of the Phoenix contributors? (Hint, hint, teachers/librarians/festival coordinators/booksellers, etc)
