COMBAT COLIN No.2 is here!

Hot off the press comes Combat Colin No.2, the second in a six-issue mini-series reprinting my Combat Colin strips from the 1980s and early 1990s!
As with the first issue, No.2 has 40 pages comprising of full colour covers and black and white interiors. This issue starts with the ones when The Transformers and Action Force merged into one comic, and features almost 70 half page strips running from February 1988 to July 1989. 

You'll see Combat Colin and his sidekick Semi-Automatic Steve encounter villains such as Madprof and Mr.Magno for the first time, plus the return of the evil Aunt Arctic of the Antarctic, the secret of the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot, the introduction of the Giggly Sisters and much more!

Combat Colin was a character I created for Marvel UK back in 1987 and became a popular back-up strip in their comics. When The Transformers comic ended in 1991 and Marvel clearly had no plans to revive Combat Colin, I enquired about copyright and Marvel agreed to return the rights to me. Most of the strips have been scanned directly from my original artwork, and I've added dates to the foot of every strip so you know where and when it first appeared.

Available to buy now exclusively from me at my online shop:

Great news! Eagerly awaiting my copy. Even though I have all of the Transformers comics beside me it'll be a great laugh I'm sure reading through all of Colin's strips on their own.
