The Thing From Another Postcode by Dave Roberts (Futurequake, Something Wicked) and Dave Thomson (Psychedelic Journal Of Time Travel, Dr WTF?)

Peter Elvis Twigs receives a remote control and instruction guide for planet earth from an intergalactic delivery man, and begins to fantasise about all the good things he could do for humanity and, more importantly, himself.

Job For Life by David Hailwood (Toxic, Strip Magazine, SPOD! Oddities From Space) and Brett Burbridge.

Jake Brikk, pizza delivery boy extraordinaire, has 30 seconds to make his pizza delivery; if he fails, the entire delivery business will be handed to the customer and Jake'll be out of a job. Can't have that - Jake loves his job with psychotic devotion.

The Golem Rises by Mister Roberts and Simon Mackie (Hallowscream, Temple Showcase)

Something is pulverising people, defiling corpses...leaving one helluva mess. Fortunately detective Ballard has an outlandish theory that just might make sense of it all.

Marren Kane by David Hailwood and Tony Suleri (Slumdroid, Cosmogenesis, Bulletproof)

Dragged against his will into the cities sewer systems by a deranged cult of partially sighted cyclops worshippers, mutant superfreak Marren Kane must face his deadliest enemy yet; a gigantic amorous squid!

I Married A Creature From Outer Space by Paul H. Birch (Creepy Kofy Movie Time, Bulletproof, Toxic) and Mats Engesten (Brainstorm Comics, Atlantis Studios)

A troubled couple go to a marriage guidance counsellor to sort out their relationship problems. Oh, how Mrs Twinkle rues the day that she married a scrawny little maggot of a man from Mars!

First Impressions by Graeme Neil Reid (Judge Dredd, 2000ad, Meanwhile)

Peaceful alien explorers land on Earth and attempt to make contact with its inhabitance. Just one slight problem...it's 85,000,000 B.C. and dinosaurs rule the planet!

Issue 6 Preview - Poor Taste

Coming to Issue 6 of 100% Biodegradable - Poor Taste by David Hailwood, Neill Cameron, Mark Stafford and Dave Morris.

This classic strip was originally published in 'Meanwhile...' A comic anthology from the late 90's, published by Soaring Penguin, which is currently on the verge of making a come back (watch out for it!  There's some amazing artists involved).

The artist, Neill Cameron has of course been highly active since, working on many a strip for The Phoenix (such as Mo-Bots and Pirates Of Pangaea).  You can catch more of his work here: http://www.neillcameron.com

Mark Stafford (http://www.hocus-baloney.com) provided the inking, and is also a highly accomplished cartoonist.

Another cartoonist, Dave Morris (who self published the rather marvellous 'Burp!' comic back in the 90's), came up with the idea of a 'vampire outbreak at a Chinese restaurant' as a throwaway comment, which myself and Neill thought was far too much fun to pass up!

Issue 6 will be out mid September.  In the meantime, you can pick up previous issues at Comicsy, Drivethru or Comixology at the following links:
