Zarjaz 13: Cover!

Yup- That's STAZ JOHNSON drawing Rogue Trooper for Zarjaz. Awesome, isn't it? Zarjaz 13 will be on sale after November 1st, and the cover will also be available as part of  the Wallpapers section of the blog.

Staz was asked a while ago to provide the cover for Zarjaz, and he was only too pleased to take part, except that he didn't like my original choice of cover strip. After a very brief moment to think it was decided that Rogue Trooper would be the perfect candidate to let Staz flex his considerable artistic muscles!

Here is the line work for the cover Staz kindly supplied. As the more eagle-eyed among you will have noticed, Staz based his work on a classic cover by Frank Frazetta; however, he also missed out on the wraparound aspect of the Zarjaz covers. That is why the cover for the issue is cropped as it is.

A huge thanks once again to Staz for providing us with one of the strongest Zarjaz images we've had.

I know Rich over at Everything Comes Back to 2000AD has already put this out there, but here is the final crop of the print version for Dark Judgement 2 by Conor Boyle. The cover will also be available in the Wallpapers section of the blog later this week. This years special will be on sale from November 1st, and to celebrate we've arranged for a limited run of Dark Judgement 1 to be available.

For a limited time only- there will be a special 2 pack in the webshop featuring both issues of Dark Judgement for £3.50 plus postage. There will also be copies on sale at conventions for as long as they last.

And the Winner is...

Congratulations to Shaun Avery! The competition for this script was really fierce, with almost nothing between the top three places, but Shaun triumphed and Mega-City One Tales: The Church of Rico will be appearing in Zarjaz 13, available after November 1st.

We've talked about this strip before, but it appears that Jon has been busy. I'm sure you'll agree with me when I say that I'm seriously excited to see how this develops!

Coming soon to Zarjaz- DEVLIN WAUGH...

This isn't going to be in print proper till March next year, when it will be the cover strip for Zarjaz 14. Those of you going to Hi-Ex next year will have an extra reason to check it out as the cover artist for the issue will be there too. Who, you say- that would be telling...

And the scores are being counted!

You know, it is getting a bit frantic here. Not only does the printer demand more comics to print this month, but we are also about to start the judging on the scripts sent in for the JUDGE RICO pages so beautifully rendered by Stephen Prestwood!

Good luck to all those out there who entered and hopefully we'll be announcing a winner by the end of the week and getting the final pages all lettered to appear in Zarjaz 13...

Now, where did I leave that cover by-
