Truly Zarjaz!

Futurequake Publishing is a small press organisation who specialise in producing a variety of 2000AD fanzines of an exceptionally high quality. The group publish many scrotnig titles including Zarjaz (a 2000AD inspired anthology,) Dogbreath (dedicated to all things Strontium Dog,) Futurequake (a Future Shock inspired anthology,) Mangaquake (Manga-esque tales,) Something Wicked (horror stories) and the one off Stak (a tribute to Rogue Trooper on his 30th Anniversary.)

The fanzines are very professionally produced and contain the writings and art of a hotbed of young talent. Past, and indeed current, contributors to the magazines have been writers and artists such as Al Ewing, PJ Holden, Nick Dyer, Si Spurrier and Arthur Wyatt.

Testiment to the high production values of these fanzines are their amazing covers, produced by some of Tharg's top droids! Many thanks to commisioning editor Bolt-01 for sending me this selection of covers - click the images to see them in all thier glorious detail!

Please support these superb fanzines (I promise you won't regret it) by buying them from here and checking for news and updates.

Above we had Richard Elson's beautiful 'Kingdom' inspired cover for Zarjaz 6 followed by Dave Kendell's magnificent Slaine for the 'Zarjaz Pat Mills Special':

This is Colin MacNeil's beautiful 'VC's' cover which graced Zarjaz number 5:

Next we have a series of Dogbreath covers starting with Nigel Dobbyn's hilarious 'Pink Gronk's on Parade' cover (spot the iPod!) for Dogbreath 17, followed by Team Tank super-artist Rufus Dayglo's cover for Dogbreath 15 and 'The Authority's' very own Simon Coleby's cool cover for Dogbreath 16.

Finally we have PJ Holden's mean and moody cover for Stak, brilliant!
