Striker vs The Sun – from the Striker comic’s official news website (via Parallax View). I’d resisted picking up a copy of Striker precisely because I’d assumed it was a News International publication – but no, it’s gone independent and is now suing its former newspaper home. I wish it all the best, not least because it’s the first weekly comic launch to get national UK distribution since (if memory serves) Sonic The Comic, which shares Striker’s committment to gritty realism in the name of cutting-edge entertainment.

(Brown Wedge aside: Striker is also a rarity in being entirely and blatantly computer-drawn: the dynamic ugliness of the results are great, I think.)
