Comic shops shut? Comic cons cancelled? Postal services delayed? Need a comic to read? Fear not, because you can still read comics digitally, and Barmy Comix is ready for you to download as a PDF!
I'd intended to have Combat Colin No.5 out in print by now but due to the Coronavirus crisis I've put that on hold for a few months. Instead, I thought I'd create Barmy Comix No.1, a one-off 32 page compilation of a few of my creator-owned strips from over the years.
It features Combat Colin, Brickman, Derek the Troll, and Pedantic Stan, the Comics Fan... PLUS a 9 page preview of Combat Colin No.5! So at least you'll have a quarter of the postponed issue of Combat Colin plus a few "best bits" thrown in!
It's free to download but I'm not earning a great deal at the moment so if you want to donate £2 after you've read the comic, please PayPal me at:
Without further ado, here's the link to download Barmy Comix No.1. It might take a few minutes (compressing the files tended to downgrade them too much so I avoided that). If you have any problems with it let me know...

Brilliant stuff, Lew!
Thanks Kal! Hope you enjoy it.
Having now read it, what a cracking compilation you've put together. Firing up the ol' PayPal machine right now.
Thank you! Much appreciated. I always said I'd never do a digital comic but needs must, and the immediate feedback is very nice.
I'm hopeful that, even though this is free, you get enough donations to reconsider the digital thing in the long term.
Regardless, thanks again for putting this out.
what does it mean, wait till after you read it to send a gift of £2? downloaded, sent gift, will read later when I get some time ^_^ no problem helping out when I can.
Thanks. just sent payment :)
Gratefully received. Thank you! I hope you enjoy it.
Just sent a donation. Will download it tomorrow. Looking forward reading it. All the best, Lew!
Thanks Paul! Really appreciate that. Hope you enjoy it!
Hi Lew! Was well worth the donation. Tried to download it on my phone but didn't work so just done it on my laptop. Very good! Shame there isn't an issue 2 also. Keep up the good work.
Sorry it didn't work on your phone, Paul. It downloaded to my phone ok, but wouldn't download to my iPad because I didn't have enough memory. I think it looks best on a laptop or desktop though.
I am planning to do a second issue, but with a different character.
Hi Lew, do you think you will ever have issue 5 of combat Colin in print to complete the collection? I will look forward to your response. Kind Regards Marc.
