Lou Scannon Issue 4 comes knocking at your door

Lou Scannin #4
Lou Scannon and his ragtag band of mercenaries have responded to a distress call from a trashed government research station. Now our anti-heroes find themselves trapped on the station with the very beast that destroyed it and killed its crew!

With about a billion* homages to Aliens and Predator, the fourth issue of this strong-selling adult sci-fi/comedy British indie comic is the funniest and most action-packed yet, the creators tell us (and backed that up with a threat of nuclear weapon use, so we believe them, honest). It's got beasts that lurk in the shadows! Experimental weapons wielded by genetically engineered weapons experts! It's got a forklift truck! And it's got a twist that will take off and nuke your socks from orbit - it's the only way to be sure!

Lou Scannon Issue Four is great fun throughout, with a twist that will have your head spinning in four dimensions. The title's rapidly developing a firm following and both script and art a delight. We recommend this, and we're not just saying that because we're frightened of their guns.

The fourth issue of this Eagle Award finalist from Dan Harris, Jim Bampfield and Kris Carter is now available to buy from, and soon from Forbidden Planet Cardiff, Fish 4 Comics (Cardiff) and Orbital Comics (London).

Issues 1, 2 & 3 are also all still available, and well worth a read! We promise you, you won't regret it! (Stop sticking that gun in my back, darn it!)

• If you'd like to catch up with the Lou Scannon creators, they will be at the one day Cardiff Comic Con event on 4th November, and at Thought Bubble in Leeds on 16th-18th November.

* (not actually a billion, a traitor to the production reveals. Don't let anyone on the team told you we told you this...)
