Biodegradable Birthday Bonanza!

This week marks 100% Biodegradable's first birthday.  Hurrah!

To celebrate, you can grab issue 1 for free on Comicsy until 1st December, or buy all 6 issues as part of a special DriveThru Bundle for less than $3.

Special thanks to all those readers, contributors, creators and reviewers who helped us get this far.  It's been hugely appreciated, and you've all really helped to make the comic a rather grand affair!

As of next year, Biodegradable will be going quarterly to allow us to focus on putting out a few one shots and mini series, and also attempt a print on demand collection of the best of issues 1-6.

But don't worry, there's still plenty of exciting material coming up next year.  In fact, have a quick peek at The Last Batch from Chris Sides and Dan Cornwell, for some hilarious booze-addled flesh munching action!

And keep your eyes peeled for issue 7, due out in December and featuring the likes of John Freeman, Alan Burrows, Chris Redfern, JT Pegg, Brett Burbridge, Tony Suleri and more!

Iron Bru!

Coming to Issue 7 of 100% Biodegradable...Iron Bru by David Hailwood and Denis Vermesse.

It's been eighteen years since the boneheaded barbarian bumbled his way onto the comics scene, first appearing in Issue 8 of Shane Chebsey's 'CAOF' anthology (my first published work!).

The original Bru strip was illustrated by myself, so it's jolly nice to have someone who can actually draw taking over the reins (especially when it's the highly talented Denis).  I'm sure this isn't the last we've seen of Bru!

Death Duty!

With issue 7 of 100% Biodegradable due out next month, it's time to start doing some previews.

First up is Death Duty from John Freeman (Dr Who, Judge Dredd Megazine, Crucible) and Alan Burrows (2000ad, Starblazer, Commando), with lettering by Ken Reynolds.

The series was first conceived back in the early 90's after John's time as editor at Marvel UK.  Set in a brutal future when corporations run a galaxy-wide empire, where Earth is a dumping ground and far from the planet it used to be, convict Travis Wilson is a man on the edge, conscripted to "peace keeping" duties that see Death Duty members hunting down enemies of their boss.  If you're on The List...he's after you!

Death Duty will be 100% Biodegradable's first ongoing series, running for 8 parts, with Brett Burbridge taking over the art duties from part 2 onwards, and David Hailwood co-writing the series with John.

It also features among its supporting cast the long awaited return of Rourke of the Radlands - a character first created by John Freeman and Liam Sharp (Judge Dredd, Death's Head, X-Men) for Marvel UK's Strip, almost 25 years ago.

Issue 7 of 100% Biodegradable will be out early December.  You can grab previous issues of the 30 page digital anthology on Comicsy, Drivethru and ComiXology for just 69p/$0.99

You can also buy digital copies of John Freeman and Smuzz' popular sci-fi series, Crucible here:  http://cruciblecomic.co.uk
