Re: A new British adventure weekly.... Could it ever happen?

I guess the question is really will there be a new British adventure mag like the ones from our childhood years. Probably not. I did try to get some of the better small press creators together for one but... And yet... http://paragoncomic.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/paragon-16-review.html PARAGON is an ...
