Today sees the launch of issue one of The Phoenix! It's a fantastic issue with amazing comic creators such as Daniel Hartwell, Neill Cameron, Ricardo Tangle, Jamie Smart, the Etherington Brothers, Patrice Aggs, Kate Brown, Ben Haggarty, Adam Murphy, James Turner and Chris Riddell - and there will be many more to come as The Phoenix appears weekly.
It is a worthy and natural successor to the much-loved DFC, and with that I think this blog kind of comes full circle and it seems a good time to close things down here as a bright new chapter in British comics begins.
There was some consultation and most contributors seemed to agree that the Super Comics Adventure Squad has slowed down quite a bit over the past few months and that with The Phoenix now risen from the ashes of The DFC, with its own website and new direction, it would be a good time to move on to pastures new - which may mean a new website/blog for UK kids' comics ... let's see!
In the meantime - huge thanks to all you readers, and also to everyone who contributed such fantastic comics news, content, drawings and links over the life of this blog. It's been brilliant :-)
Please keep up your support of the vibrant UK comics scene and keep visiting the creators' links over there to the right, and subscribe to The Phoenix, if you haven't already - it's British comics at their very best!
