Combat Colin on his way all over the UK

This morning I posted another dozen copies of Combat Colin No.3 to people all over the UK who had ordered copies (above). Tomorrow I'll be posting the stack shown below. And a few more every day this week.
Many thanks for your orders so far. Issue 3 is doing as well as previous issues in its launch week and although orders are bound to slow down soon I'm pleased with the response.

Of course, after PayPal's taken it's cut and the taxman takes his, I don't make much out of self publishing, but it breaks even at least... AND people who have been wanting my old strips back in print get their wish, so all's well!

If you're interested in buying copies of issue 3 or previous comics, you can order them directly from me here:

While making money is great, As long as you brake even you do well with them ^_^

Thanks. I guess so. Sales of issue 3 have already covered the print bill, but I'm having more printed soon and they'll naturally sell more steadily over the next year, so I won't really feel the benefit. I could perhaps sell more if I made them available to all comic shops but then I'd have to put the cover price up to cover the 40% or so that shops take, - and a price rise could put potential readers off. So... I'll leave things as they are for now.
