Phlegm Comics write:
Just a short note to say issue seven of phlegm comic is out now!
I’ve also got a new website up packed with new photos and all that jazz. There’s also a revamped shop section selling issue five through to issue seven with paypal.
Most of the outlets are now stocked too, but if you’re traveling out of your way you may want to check with me first because I’m notoriously rubbish.
Also attached to this email is the flier for my next exhibition. It’s at spine in Worcester and I’ll be showing full digital a3 prints of all the pages of issue seven on quality card stock, some new a2 size screen prints hand screened by myself, pen and ink drawings, new etchings, and comics.
For weekly updates on what’s happening in all things phlegm just pop along to my blog linked at the bottom of this email.

This March you’ve got two chances to catch up with the crew behind Orang Utan Comics. The UK indie favourites are taking to the road to promote two new titles.

On March 8th-9th OUC will be attending Collectormania at the GMex in Manchester. And later in the month on the 22nd Orang Utan Comics will be appearing at The Web & Mini Comix Thing in London (http://ukwebcomixthing.co.uk/).

The two titles that Orang Utan Comics are unleashing in March are Baby Boomers and Eleventh Hour (Collector’s Edition). Baby Boomers, from the twisted minds of new creators Richard McAuliffe and Chad Cicconi, has been described as “Calvin and Hobbes meets Spy vs Spy”.

The Collector’s Edition of Eleventh Hour combines both existing issues of the critically acclaimed anthology title in a 64 page softcover trade.

For more information on Orang Utan Comics and what else they have planned for 2008, visit them online at www.orangutancomics.co.uk
