Available from MARKOSIA among other places, Ketsueki is a complete GN, written by Richmond Clements and lavishly illustrated by Inko.

Thos of you out there may well recall that this was one of the strips in the earliest issues of MangaQuake and we did in deed present versions of the opening chapters, however, Inko has completely made this strip her own and it is a delight to read.

FQP At the London Comics Show 2012

Copies of FutureQuake and Something Wicked were on sale at the recent MCM London Expo. Friend of FQP, Ricky-Marcel Pitcher (top right), was attending as part of the Comics village and agreed to take some copies along. Ricky was the writer for 'London 2012: The Worlds are Watching', the lead story of FutureQuake 21. 

By all accounts the Expo was a huge success for FQP, whose publications flew off the stall and were all gone by the second day and Ricky alike, who was promoting his Indi comic, BURN (Left), available now from KickStarter at the following link.
