Some pages from the new weekly subscription-only British The DFC comic are now available to view on line at:

DFC's content includines a strip by author Philip Pullman, The Adventures of John Blake, illustrated by John Aggs, one of the contributors to RapidFire, plus Charlie Jefferson and the Tomb of Nazaleod by Garen Ewing, creator of the highly acclaimed Rainbow Orchid; Mobot High by Neill Cameron, creator of Thumpculture; The Boss by Patrice Aggs; and Good Dog, Bad Dog by Dave Shelton (pictured right) and Monkey Nuts by The Etherington Brothers, creators of Malcolm Magic – both featured in the Saturday Guardian.

Early Bird subscriptions are now also available, offering four free issues and the next 22 with 25% off -- and as an additional bonus for subscribing, you get 50% off Random House children’s books. Click here for more information on the official DFC web site. Special discounted subscriptions are also being offered for schools.

The first issue of The DFC -- already being heavily promoted, if a little erroneously, -- will be delivered to homes across the world on the 30th May, packed with adventure, excitement, robots and talking sausages...
