ON SHELVES THIS WEEK SPOTLIGHT: IDW's Zaucer of Zilk #1
This Wednesday sees the US release through IDW of Al Ewing and Brendan McCarthy’s Zaucer of Zilk in part one of a two issue mini series. The story, which originally saw print in 2000AD beginning in Prog. 1775 earlier this year sees print stateside as part of the new partnership between the two companies.
In a prior interview I conducted with Brendan he described Zaucer of Zilk as “The strip is in the 2000AD tradition of Sooner or Later and Hewligan’s Haircut. It’s a bit of British surrealism… ‘The Wizard of Oz’ meets ‘The Mighty Boosh’.” If that catches your attention then keep an eye out for it when it is released later this week.
ZAUCER OF ZILK #1 of 2 (32 pages, FC, $3.99) will be in stores October 17th 2012. Diamond order code: AUG120394
