YouAreComic In Print Yet Again...

Just when you thought it was safe to go into your comic-shop the next installment of the YouAreComic print-media assault is unleashed on an unsuspecting public.

FUTUREQUAKE #16 features a 5 page strip called 'BOOBIE TRAP' written by yours truly. It stars Santa Claus the Easter Bunny and a couple of tough guys from B.O.O.B.I.E. (that's the Bureua of Occult and Otherworldy Being Integration and Enforcement to you and me). The awesome artwork comes courtesy of art-droid extraordinaire Bruno Stahl with lettering by the ultra-prolific Bolt-01.

Here's a sneaky peek:

That's all from me. I don't want to be holding you back from rushing over to the FutureQuake Store to snap up a copy.

Embarrassing Moments In Super-Villainy #5

Look Mr. Diamondhead I know that having a body made of diamonds, having super-strength, being at the forefront of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal and being responsible for badass song titles like 'Am I Evil', 'Shoot Out The Lights' and 'Sucking My Love' can cause an overwhelming sense of superiority and feelings of complete invunerablity to set in...

...but is taking a quick glance over your shoulder when a helpful young man with a bucket on his head asks you to really too much to ask?

Tsk Tsk Tsk, falling for the old 'look behind really' trick. For shame!

Why Lars and James were so influenced by this guy I'll never know.

What do you mean I'm mixing up my Diamondheads. It's such a stupid name how many other Diamondheads can there be?

(Today's moment of comic-book confusion was brought to you by Marv Wolfman's, Sal Buscema's and Tom Palmer's stellar Nova #3 from way back in the misty era of 1976. Also in this issue Diamonhead recounts his formative years running around town dressed as the Red Skull beating up the neighbourhood kids)
