This Just In: I’m Brilliant

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Well not quite. But I have recently come across a rather good  five star review of Hope For The Future 13 in Comic Heroes issue 10. Trying to get any sort of review of your independent comics in any publication or website is usually like bashing your head against a brick wall, (even when it’s a site that specifically covers independent comics), so you’ll forgive me if I start shouting about a well produced internationally published magazine actually giving my stuff a mention.

Yes, that’s my whale! MINE! The review itself is as follows:

There’s no such subtlety in Hope For The Future, but trust us that no bad thing. Now 13 issues in, Simon Perrins’ ongoing series combines tales of dread, a hefty scoop of weirdness, and some superbly creative swearing to devastating effect. The artwork is well handled (it’d be great to see in colour), the story telling well paced and the characters utterly, frustratingly believable. Equally as adept at pinpointing the subtle annoyances in every festival crowd as spinning a hilariously bad-mouthed Middle Ages dragon-slaying yarn, this is genuinely inspired stuff.

Pretty good eh? Almost as if I’d written it myself. Actually, if I had written it myself I would have mentioned that the comic is available here. And that the artist is really, really good looking.
