The spirit of 1991

I found the following editorial in the first issue of Shockwave, which was published way back in 1991. Have a read.

Its message is: when the mainstream comic market is in decline, you know the time is right to write a different type of comic, or at least try.

For those that don’t know, Shockwave was an English magazine that reprinted Vertigo stories and was sold in newsagents/news stands.

London Editions Magazines (LEM), who published UK reprints of Superman and Batman stories, was behind it.

Seventeen years on, and it is a shame that I can’t pick-up an adult aimed comic collection from the local newsagents.
