Why is the female protagonist of The Force Awakens hard to find in Star Wars merch? An insider says it was a marketing decision.

Loved Johnny Red as a comic, an interview here with Garth Ennis and Keith Burns on their continuation of  the classic story. 
The good guys at Titan books facilitated an interview for James with, well let’s be brutally honest, one of his very favourite writers, and an artist he doesn’t stop talking about: Garth Ennis and Keith Burns. Their new take on a classic British war comic character, Johnny Red, is out this week; luckily for us …

I may have syndicated this piece out.... 
I love checking out comic shops, seeing what they are like, finding things I never knew existed or perhaps something I never expected to find. This is how I was as I walked into Mission Comics and Art in San Francisco. The shop was welcoming and large, a dog leg in the space meant it …

Cosplay - I do love it
Comic Con is many things to many people and without doubt today is busier, and the main exhibition hall is fuller. Queues formed at 7.30am for exclusive items, vendors forming those queues, to be bolstered by regular attendees at 9am. Today there are queues for the lottery to gain entrance to the queue to meet …

Dreaming Eagles #1, Garth Ennis, Simon Coleby Aftershock Comics It’s 1966, and Reggie, a middle-aged African-American man stands outside his business as dusk falls, staring up into the sky – longingly?

Mike Carroll is from Dublin, and I've known him a long time, Judge Dredd's first visit to the Emerald Isle was a really inspiring comic for me, by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, so this 6 parter with art by Colin MacNeil had a massive challenge to face, and it exceeded my expectations.

Dr Who Lego!
‘That’s amazing,’ comments Peter Capaldi as he sees Lego Dimensions for the first time.

This …
