This Week In The Phoenix - Issue 67

I haven't posted a review of The Phoenix for a while now, but I received the latest issue, number 67, on time and early, so why not? This weeks issue, shown above, has a fantastic eye catching cover by Adam Murphy, featuring Adam with his "scariest guest ever" - Vlad The Impaler, in the Corpse Talk strip!

Adam also illustrated a second strip this week, entitled The Emerald Slippers. It looks like the strip has been painted by hand, but with the many amazing things Photoshop can do I just can't be sure.

This issue also heralds the return of Blimpville, illustrated by Patrice Aggs. If you have been reading The Phoenix since it's launch back at the beginning of 2012 you might remember this strip from the very first issues. If not, what happens is each week you have to find certain things (a bit of a 'Where's Wally?' is you like), and also spot what has changed since last week. It's all a good bit of fun!

That's all I'm going to reveal from the latest issue, so if you want to find out more you'll have to grab yourself a copy from your nearest store, for £2.99.
