As most of you already know Bad Press Ltd. is dead, and took a lot of cool things to its grave, including "Wasted" magazine and very indie-friendly online shop. It's sad that after 15 years of existence the company was forced to shut down "due to unforeseen and adverse circumstances" which have left owners, creators and fans of Bad Press in sorrow. Since Bad Press shop was very kind to "New British Comics" being the heart and brain of the UK distribution that leaves us mourning too.
Thankfully, nature does not tolerate void, and Braw Books has been created lately!
"Our intention is quite simple - to gather together the output of various seasoned Scottish cartoonists into one place, a lasting testament and reward for their years of dedication, skill and application, and a vital record and starting place for the (in)experienced reader (or the simply curious)."
Thanks to people behind Braw Books NBC has found a old-new house from which you can always order our books, and many more great titles, such as: "Collected John Miller", "Collected Shug ’90" and a whole line of "Evil Wee Comics". Definitely it's worth checking out, both online and during comicons in the near future.

If you are looking for quality movie reviews, I recommend you to check 35movieminutes.com. It's an interesting mix of podcasts created by a small, yet dedicated team, and written reviews, published by Ryan Colucci who is an independent producer and writer in both movie and comic areas. By "independent" I don't mean "wannabe", Ryan is a professional, his next movie ("White Space") should be up for release next year. Anyway, his profession gives a nice, fresh perspective on reviewed movies, both new and old.
Every contributor of NBC seemed to do a lot in the last few months, so please just start clicking links on the right for updates (lazy, lazy, lazy). Many of them will be present at Comica Comiket including John Miers, WJC, Van Nim, Paul O'Connell & Lawrence Elwick!
In case you've missed it: Mindlessones.com had a special with Biscuit, the character from "Cindy & Biscuit Save The World (again)" published in NBC #3 and "CINDY & BISCUIT no.1".
