Scratch that fanzine urge!

British and Irish comics fan Steve Green is to finally launch his long-planned online zine Scratch, early next year - and is on the look out for contributors.

First mooted in 2008 but delayed by 'real life', Steve says the inaugural issue of Scratch should go live in early January, and hold to a quarterly schedule from then onwards.

"I'm after interviews, profiles, convention listings and reports, reviews, news -- anything, in fact, to promote British and Irish comics creators," he asks. One tradition I'm also contemplating resurrecting from my days running Critical Wave is art portfolios, offering a showcase to new comics artists, but I'll phase that feature in once Scratch has built up an audience.

"For now, I'm on the look-out for contributors. If you're interested, please drop me a line via stevegreenATlivejournal.com, indicating your particular interests."

Thanks for the plug, John. I got into comics fandom in the mid-70s, and I hope Scratch will echo the energy of those days.
