Issue #5 of the so far impressive Lou Scannon arrived on my doorstep a few weeks back and somehow it seemed to slip through my “next-to-read” pile as I drowned in an influx of new issues. Wall-to-wall “must-reads” could stand in the way no longer as the intrigue of the creative teams Facebook comments “It’s very different” aimed in my direction had me wary of what to expect.

This weekend sees the Thought Bubble Festival close with its two-day comic book event – quite possibly one of the best Comic Con’s in the UK and definitely a favourite of the Comics Anonymous gang. We have a table this year in the Royal Armouries Hall Table 88 which you can swing by for some Comic chat/shenanigans…..minus G-Man this year (He’s crying himself to sleep on the run up to it).

With 2012 bringing the Lou Scannon team a much deserved Eagle Award nomination and the first three issues (reviewed here – #1, #2 & #3) becoming an instant favourite with the Comics Anonymous team……….could they keep that momentum going with their 4th issue??

It’s no secret that the Lou Scannon title from Dan Harris, Kris Carter & Jim Bampfield is a favourite of mine – check out the reviews here: #1 & #2, #3. It’s a sci-fi comedy and more fun that many comics are able to pull-off on their best days. I got the chance to interview the guys and they even sent me through some exclusive preview art from issue #4 – Phazers set to FUN!

With issue #3 having recently made its debut at this year’s Cardiff Comic Con and making me curse the Con Gods who held London Super Con on the same weekend – my pre-ordered copy hit my door just a week or so ago. Having picked up issues #1 & #2 from the creators last year (and reviewing it here) my “go-to” comic for some escapism and fun had a new name….and it was a UK indie…..even better!

As 2012 fills up the CA team diary with more Cons than Arkham Asylum, there’s also the added bonus of the TOP comic book contributors being highlighted in the numerous award ceremonies which take place at these. None more so than the long standing Eagle Awards (around since the mid-70’s) which are presented at this years MCM Expo London Comic Con in May. With the 1st round of nominations being open since the start of January through until the end of February, the CA team thought we’d try and highlight some key possibilities for your nominations…..

I was fortunate enough to catch up with Dan Harris, Kris Carter & Jim Bampfield as I continued my on-going mission to read more comics than a human brain can process…..and when I heard the words “Do you like Red Dwarf?” as part of the discussions on this book…..they had me hooked…..on the downside….this may confirm my outward appearance as a geek…..and to be fair….I WAS at a comic con….so it was a losing battle for my street-cred anyway.
