Partly Partners

As recently mentioned, Alexi has the cover story in the new FutureQuake #26. But that's not all - check out the Mark Harrison cover to the latest issue of FQP's 2000AD fan-comic, Zarjaz #23 (also out on 1st March):


AND guess whose story that is.... well, okay, that one's actually not Alexi's. But it looks pretty cool, right? And Alexi DOES have a splendid story that should be appearing within those pages - 'Partners', art by Roland Bird and lettering by Bolt-01, a story about being a judge on the mean streets of the Big Meg and how you deal with who's got your back. Maybe like Brief Encounter with more plasma cannons ... or not.

Part of the flock

FutureQuake #26 is out on 1st March. Get a load of this:



Nice Matt Soffe cover, eh? And guess what? That's Alexi Conman's story that!

Yes, the longest-running/coolest/bestest UK small-press SF anthology comic is leading an issue with 'The Shepherd' scripted by Alexi. It's a tale of loneliness and job disillusionment and aliens. The stunning interior art is by Xia Moua...


... and it's lettered by Bolt-01. Plus the comic will no doubt be chock-full of other great stuff.

Alexi urges you to consider purchasing this fine publication (after 1st March): here (for a physical copy), here (for a digital copy) or from the many comic events that the splendid chaps of FutureQuake Press will be attending over the forthcoming months.

Back with a Rigelian Hotshot

Finally, some more comics that Alexi has worked on should be appearing in the relatively near future - starting with 'Partners', a story that should hopefully be appearing in Zarjaz #23.

Zarjaz, as you know, is the much-respected 2000AD fanzine comic that allows the cream of small-press creators (and many established pros) to play around with the iconic characters of 2000AD. Alexi has previously scripted a story that was published in issue #12 (which is still available to purchase at many comic events and via the FutureQuake Press website!).

 
'Partners' is a nine-page story about the responsibilities of being a judge in the Big Meg. Alexi is pretty flipping pleased with how it turned out, thanks to cracking art by Roland Bird and lettering by Bolt-01.

**EDIT: Gah, it's not going to be in Zarjaz #22, but may land in Zarjaz #23!**
