Pat Mills to write for ComicScene!

Pat Mills to have the last word in new magazine ComicScene UK

Pat Mills, the creator and first editor of 2000AD and co-creator of characters such as Slaine and ABC Warriors, is to write an exclusive regular monthly column for the new magazine ‘Comic Scene UK’.  The ‘Last Word’ column is expected to be as colourful, controversial and outspoken as his appearances in the recent 2000AD documentary ‘FutureShock’ and his book ‘Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave! – 2000AD and Judge Dredd: The Secret History’.

Pat Mills said about the announcement, “I’m passionate about British comics and their unique place in the world. Unfortunately, their spirit can be diluted and devalued by trying to emulate the Americans, and by a certain bland, ‘make no waves’ thinking. I’m looking forward to shedding a little light on some dark corners of the industry, and suggesting some possible solutions in my new column: The Last Word!

Tony Foster from ComicsFlix publishing “We are very pleased that we have the Godfather of comics writing a regular column for ComicScene UK.  Pat has been a success across the world and created some of the greatest comic stories and characters.  The ideas, advice and recommendations he will share in ComicScene UK will be worth the cover price alone.  We look forward to him having the last word in every monthly issue.”

The new ‘ComicScene UK’ is a specialist full colour A4 monthly magazine with all the latest news and articles on classic comics, reprinted material, new titles and comic creators.  Published by it will be a showcase for fans including the best in Cosplay, UK fandom and stripzines now and from the last 50 years.  The magazine is available by mail order only and you can subscribe in advance now.
