Please excuse the shameless pluggery, but I thought you might be interested in our new fanzine.Vworp Vworp!
takes a loving, affectionate look at Marvel/Panini’s Doctor Who
comic strips and the magazine that spawned them – Doctor Who Magazine
. It's a not-for-profit, full-colour glossy 80-page perfect-bound fanzine that is packed with plenty of interesting Doctor Who
comics background and other material. It includes an interview with founding editor Dez Skinn
, discussing the birth of Doctor Who Weekly; and a guide to the creation of the first Marvel Who
strip, The Iron Legion
, with in-depth interviews with Dave Gibbons
and Pat Mills
and contributions from Dez Skinn
and David Lloyd
Also a wide range of writers celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the launch of Doctor Who Weekly. For a full list of features and the many, many contributors - including Mike Collins, Andrew Pixley, John Freeman, Scott Gray, Martin Geraghty, Clayton Hickman, Tim Quinn & Dicky Howett, Roger Langridge, Dan McDaid, Nick Miller, Leighton Noyes, Alister Pearson, John Ridgway, Rob Shearman, Baxter Sullivan, Kev F Sutherland & Steve Noble, Ben Templesmith
and Ben Willsher
(trust us, almost everyone who has ever been involved in DWM
comics has had some input into this one), head over to our website for the full list.
As if all that wasn't enough, our two covers also feature a set of transfers (yes, real transfers, just like the ones on Issue 1 of the Weekly
thirty years ago) specially drawn by Paul Grist
(with colours by the sublime James Offredi
), complete with a Dalek scene to apply them to!
