Battle Ganesh - Collected!

I've been re-reading the Battle Ganesh tale written by The Emperor and drawn by the late, great Stephen Prestwood. It's a cracking tale! Who would like to see a collected edition?

Read the review! Buy the comic!

The first review of PARAGON #21 is in and those lovely people at Amazing Tales have this to say about it

"it’s refreshing that talented people are willing to say “the hero of my next story will be a 19th century Hungarian composer.  It's a comedy".

Oh, they get it. And I love them for it. Read the full review here;

Then pop back here and click the link to buy a copy 😊

Peter Wyngarde RiP

I was saddened to hear of the death of one of my absolute favourite actors this morning, Peter Wyngarde. As a huge fan of the ITC shows of the sixties, you can imagine how much I enjoyed the louche character of Jason King and his impeccable dress sense - I still turn my cuffs up on my shirt today!
And, of course, he played Klytus in my top sci-fi movie, Flash Gordon. You can keep your new Star Wars and new Treks - if I stumble across Flash Gordon on the TV schedules, I will sit and watch it. He was also in The Prisoner (as a number 2), Doctor Who and the Avengers (in an episode once seen, never forgotten!)
And how many actors can say that?

There will be a full article on Peter's career in the next PARAGON

PARAGON... gone?

Okay chaps I need your help. If you are reading this then you have probably liked the PARAGON comic Facebook page or you may have read an issue previously. Hopefully you've enjoyed it or enjoyed what what you've seen here.  As I write I have given out more contributor comps of this issue than I've sold. And that is disheartening considering how much effort goes into producing an issue. To not even have made double figures in sales makes me feel it isn't worth that effort. I think it's a great comic, people who give me feedback tell me similar. Hopefully you do, too.
So I'm asking you to get on your preferred social media and tell your friends about this anthology. If they grew up reading British comics in the 70s and 80s and still read comics then this will be for them. The fact that the Treasury Collection editions of Misty, Faceache, One Eyed Jack and Leopard from Lime Street from Rebellion seem to did so well tells me there is an audience out there if only I could reach it.
So please, help spread the word. Buy a copy yourself and see how the publication has evolved since last you read an issue.
Without your help to increase the audience I don't think I'll carry on with it, which is a crying shame as there are some wonderful scripts and art lined up for future issues.
