Announcing : The first issue of THE COMIX READER, Britain's new Underground, Alternative, Independent, Satirical, Carnivalesque, ComixStrip Compendium!

The Comix Reader is a 24 page tabloid-sized (approximately A3) anthology of mainly full colour comic strips that attempts to recapture some of the fun and free spirit of the 60's underground press, while being cheap and hopefully accessible enough to interest people who might not read many comics. It's also an experiment in distribution and publishing : 9,000 copies paid for and distributed by the artists - a first, small attempt in taking "alternative" comics to a wider audience. People love comics!

It features work by 22 artists : Tobias Tak, Steve Tillotson, Ralph Kidson, Ellen Lindner, Paul O'Connell, Saban Kazim, Bird, Tim & Alex Levin, Gareth Brookes, Paul Ashley Brown, Lord Hurk, Kat Kon, Daniel Locke, Julia Homersham, Lawrence Elwick, Alex Potts, Jimi Gherkin, Scott Smith, Peter Lally, Sina Evil, and Richard Cowdry.

See www.thecomixreader.com for the latest news, stockists and ordering details.

Christmas: A time of terror!!! Your home is invaded by a large bearded man in red whose name is an anagram of Satan!!! You are forced to attend chillingly tense family get-togethers!!! And then there's that budget!!!!!!

...set these petty fears aside for one night and start the season with a true taste of terror...

You are compelled to attend the launch of Windell's SUPERNATURAL SHOWCASE in Anseo Public House (Camden Street Lwr.) on the evening of Saturday December the 11th.

Thank you for your time. You may now return to prayer.

Hubert Windell
CEO Windell Publications
