I thought I'd better post an update for those of you wondering when the next issue of Combat Colin will be ready to order.
At the moment I've had to put issue 5 on the back burner while I get on with mainstream comics work that pays the bills. I'm still hoping to publish it in late April or early May but it really depends on how much the current coronavirus pandemic affects things. If postal services are postponed or restricted to essential items only there's little point in me publishing a comic that depends on mail order. More importantly, if I lose income from my mainstream work (e.g.: comics being put on hold if printers/distributors/shops close) then I'll have to save my money for essentials just to survive. (Last year was a bad one financially and I'm still dealing with that.)
As we're all well aware, the situation is changing daily and it'll get worse before it gets better. The whole of human society is dealing with massive unexpected lifestyle changes worldwide and I fully appreciate that people will have to prioritise things that are far more important than funnybooks. (I've already stopped buying most comics I was following, and have ceased buying books for the time being.)
At the moment I'm still booked for the list of conventions shown on the right hand column of this blog and if that changes I'll notify you here right away. Likewise, if Combat Colin No.5 does go into production soon I'll post an update here. At worst, it'll be postponed until later in the year hopefully. When it is available you'll be able to order it from my online shop. http://www.lewstringer.com/page7.htm
I don't know about you folks but I keep thinking this is a nightmare we'll suddenly wake up from. Sadly it's all too real. Wishing you all good health and let's hope we survive this crisis for brighter and happier times ahead.
