News has reached the Boys, Blokes, Books blog of new weekly comic. Each issue has twelve stories, including one written by Philip Pullman of the His Dark Materials fame. The comic is DFC and is published in England. But you can’t buy DFC in newsagents or bookshops. Even if you live right in the middle of London, even if you live next door to Buckingham Palace, even if you live on Charing Cross Road which is famous for its bookshops, you still can’t walk in to a shop and buy DFC.
(image from John Blake) DFC is available by subscription only. So it doesn’t really matter that you don’t live next door to Buckingham Palace. (Anyway, the royal corgis might keep you awake at night.) The postage to Australia is about an extra $2.20 per issue. Check out the DFC website…you will find a free comic creator to download, plus tips from the pro’s and loads more.
