Comic Art

I just had to pass this on...The discovery of the
Comic Art Magazine!!!
I was reading
Patricia Storm's blog which is a lot of fun, with great illos and bits of info. She recommended this mag. I was so taken with it that I have ordered my first issue. I cant tell you whats its like but have a look at Patricia's description of the magazine.
If you like Comic Art then this is the one for you!

For a good comic shop in London go to: Gosh Comic shop- A wonderful comic shop on the corner of Museum Street and Great Russell Street, south of the British Museum, easily recognisable from a distance by it's blue and yellow Batman sign hanging outside. I highly recommend this shop. I haven't been to the other ones listed below but you can find more info about them on this website London openguides.
Comic showcase in Soho
Mega city comic in Camden
Mighty World Of Comicana on Oxford street
