Long Gone Don on the shortlist for the Stan Lee Excelsior Award Junior!

We're very proud to announce that Long Gone Don has been chosen as one of five books on the shortlist for this year's Stan Lee Excelsior Award Junior! This fantastic award is voted for by children themselves, aged 8-11, so we're as pleased as punch to be on the shortlist! A big shoutout to our good pal and fellow Phoenix foot soldier, Jamie Smart, who is also on the list with his excellent Bunny Vs Monkey!

Best of the Year - a little taste of the good stuff!

Every December the guys at the Forbidden Planet International blog invite a series of creators to sum up the previous eleven months of books, comics and movies by selecting their fave three in each category.

Sometimes choosing just three is extremely difficult, so I tend to pick those releases that have really intrigued me. This year was hard. Very hard. I'm just SO glad no one asked me to list my favourite games....

1) Destiny
2) Wolfenstein
3) Broken Age
4) Valiant Hearts
5) Tomb Raider (it counts because I'm talking about the Definitive Collection!)
6) Rayman Legends
7) The Last of Us remastered
8) Counterspy
9) Massive Chalice
10) Valkyria Chronicles (released on the PC so it counts!!!)

And that's not including Far Cry 4 or GTA5 which I'm yet to sample ...***

Oh. It seems I made a list after all.

You can read my ACTUAL Best of the Year HERE!

*** - If any companies wish to send me free games (PS4) then please don't hesitate. ... hehehe

Give the Gift of Adventure this Christmas!

Yes, folks, Christmas is around the corner, and I can't think of a better gift for friends and family young or old than a comic book from the Phoenix or DFC library! Featuring the very cream of the crop of comic artists and writers, every one of these books is sure to delight! You can get all the books direct from the Phoenix store HERE, including all four of our own titles!
