Combat Colin update

I had hoped to publish Combat Colin No.2 by early November, but being busy on mainstream comics work meant that ship has sailed. The comic is complete, except for the cover art, which I'll be finishing off later this week. To avoid any delays/losses with Christmas post, I'll now be publishing Combat Colin No.2 in January 2018. I hope the delay isn't too much of a disappointment. Issue 2 will be packed with around 70 Combat Colin strips from the period when it joined The Transformers as a half page strip in 1988 through to 1989.

The plan is then to publish issue 3 in late March or April, and issue 4 sometime next summer. I'm still planning to stick to the schedule of 2 or 3 issues a year.

Never head of it. Can you blog about Whizzer and Chips ond Corr?

Lew Stringer said...

The whole point of this blog is to talk about comics I've worked on, so, no. And it was Cor!!, not Corr.

Not off to a good start if no2 is delayed. I'll pass.

Rods Toy Box said...

Excellent! Can't wait for issue 2.

Your letter will be in there, Rod!

Hey "Jute", no one named Jute bought issue 1 so I know you're trolling. Very lame.

No 1 was a wonderful rush of nostalgia, a sort of Action Comics 'prelude' to the TF peak years, which I believe begins with No 2. I can't wait. Ooh-er!

Yes, No.2 kicks off with the first ones that appeared in the Transformers. I'll be posting a preview here on New Years Day!

Whoops, sorry, thought post disappeared, did it twice. But can't wait for No 2. Hope you can manage 3 installments in 2018. I'll be here New Year's Day for the preview!

Oh and maybe one day a Robo Capers anthology!

Lew Stringer said...

No chance of Robo Capers I'm afraid. Marvel still own the rights to that, and I can't see them ever doing one.

I'm aiming to publish Combat Colin No.2 in late January, No.3 in May, and No.4 in September but we'll see how the year pans out.
