An avalanche of comics!

Right, bit of a meaty update for you.

Firstly, not one but two 100% Biodegradable print collections have just launched on Drivethru.

100% Biodegradable Collection 2 features 26 strips from professional creators, indie regulars and promising newcomers across the UK and abroad, including Dan Cornwell (Rok of the Reds, Futurequake), Gary Crutchley (2000ad, WESTERNoir), Jim Alexander (2000ad, Judge Dredd Megazine), Jon Haward (Judge Dredd, Tales Of The Buddha), Paul H. Birch (Toxic, Creepy Kofy Movie Time), Paul Harrison-Davies (Boom! Studios 'Zombie Tales', Blank Slate's 'Nelson'), Tony Suleri (Slumdroid, Bulletproof) and many more.

It collects selected stories from issues 7-10 of the digital anthology, including a preview of the first explosive episode of Death Duty by John Freeman and Brett Burbridge (the full series can be read in issues 7-14 of the 100% Biodegradable digital anthology), and is available for $12 (slightly less than a tenner) at the following link:

100% Biodegradable Collection 3 features 24 strips from the likes of Andrew Hartmann (Torsobear, Sh*t Flingers), Kek-W (2000ad, Commando), Lukasz Kowalczuk (Slime!, Aces Weekly), Tomislav Tikulin (Asimov's Science Fiction, Analog) and many more.

It collects selected stories from issues 11-14 of the digital anthology; whether it's rampaging robots, surfboarding teenage werewolves, or Elvis in a phlegm suit you're after, there's a little something for everyone.

And in other news 100% Biodegradable issue 14, which contains the final explosive instalment of John Freeman and Brett Burbridge's Death Duty series, has just been released on ComiXology for just 69p.  Treat yourself to some quality sci-fi carnage!

And in case all that isn't enough to give you a sci-fi overload, 100% Biodegradable 15 is out now!

Here's a few previews of what to expect inside...

First up, the start of a brand new 8 part series from John Freeman and Dave Thomson...Skowdogs!  A small rundown starship with its misfit crew seek out new worlds, new civilisations - and try to make as much money as possible without getting killed...

And then we have Climate Exchange by Dave Roberts and Edward Whatley, in which the discovery of a receipt for planet earth could prove to be mankind's ultimate salvation...or destruction.

From Alan Burrows (2000ad, Eagle, Red Dwarf) and Paul H. Birch comes the first of a three part classic series starring the ever charismatic Switchblade.

All this, and more, in the next 36 page edition of 100% Biodegradable...available now on Drivethru and Comicsy
