Plus interviews with Adam Woodall, Graham Woods, Stacey Taylor and Steve Tanner!

Another quiet week for comics made even stranger because no Marvel titles will actually be in my local comic book shop this week! Of course nothing stops 2000AD though. In MEANWHILE… this week a upcoming book that you should check out.

We’re back with part 2 of our series looking at local Birmingham-based geeky shops still serving during the lockdown.

Welcome back! Read on for more geeky businesses in Birmingham still serving during the current lockdown.

We’re approaching the 1-year anniversary of the first lockdown here in the UK, and well into the third iteration.
With geeky shops and hangouts closed for walk-ins, for nearly a year. This put a lot of those businesses and workers in danger but it has a major impact on the geeky subculture in the city. These destinations are more than regular shops. They formed the basis for social activities and inspired friendship groups. They held events which brought us together to play, talk and bond over a mutual interest. Importantly, many of these places provide a safe space for those of us who need it.

In this issue, Ryan, Keith, & Mat go local and to space!

We discuss the first third of WandaVision, review Star Trek: Lower Decks, on its UK release, and look at three local geek hotspots trading throughout Lockdown 3. Plus regulars Games of the Week(s) and The GeekyBrummie Pull List

Things are looking more normal again this week with 5 books vying for Comic of the Week – the contenders are X-Men, New Mutants, Excalibur, Strange Adventures and WOFTWTD. In MEANWHILE… the Marvel Heroes are Reborn Again?

Another relatively quiet one for the Pull List this week with only Once and Future making the grade. In MEANWHILE… a new service for DC Digital comics launches but what about outside the USA?
