ComicScene, Time Bomb Comics and GetMyComics have joined forces to bring you the first in a line of SHIFT special editions. These comics are available to pre order but will be coming to newsstands such as WHSmith in late July.
Shift are working with a number of publishers and creators to highlight their work, and bring it to an unsuspecting public! This special edition is produced with Time Bomb Comics and ComicScene, and features strips from Time Bomb’s two Brawler comics and the ComicScene 2021 annual plus a brand new story not seen anywhere else The Baker St Irregulars by David Morris and Patrick O’Connor . Featuring an array of the UKs best independent creators, SHIFT Presents… Brawler contains 11 action packed stories in an 84 page package, designed to fit with your existing SHIFT collection!
Tony Foster, Publisher of ComicScene said, “Adrian Clarke and Get My Comics have been very helpful to us over the last three years, making sure subscribers get our publications. We returned the favour and helped get Shift in newsagents and comics shops and are pleased ComicScene continues in their pages. When Adrian Clarke at Shift said there was an opportunity to bring additional comics and share the work of indie creators on newsstands I jumped at the chance. Steve Tanner at Time Bomb Comics was a big help with the ComicScene Annual 2021 and I’m a big fan of the Brawler anthology so I thought it would be cool to bring strips together that fitted the Brawler vibe. We are all going to continue to do our own publications but to bring these fabulous comic creators to a wider audience through newsstands and possibly comic shops in the UK and US is amazing news.”
Steve Tanner, Editor of Brawler and publisher at Time Bomb Comics said, “Usually when British comics announce they’re joining forces it’s bad news, but for the past few months Time Bomb has been delighted to be working alongside Shift and Comic Scene on the Brawler Special – a publication that really will be great news for all readers – and a great read!”
