(with thanks to Lew Stringer): The twelfth issue of British Comics magazine Crikey! should go on sale this Friday, 29th October.
The issue includes interviews with 2000AD co-creator Pat Mills, Albion writers Leah Moore and John Reppion and veteran comic artist Frank McDiarmid, best known for his work on the humour weekly, Cheeky.
Also featured is the first of a two-part feature on Doctor Who comics across the decades (and yes, it is Doctor Who, contrary to the alarming shortening of the series name on the cover) and an interview with artist Lee O'Connor talking about his new project with Pat Mills, Stars: The Ayatollah's Son), and a feature on The Persuaders comic which featured in Countdown and TV Action in the 1970s, based on the Roger Moore and Tony Curtis TV series
