The DFC spirit continues: Super Comics Adventure Squad

A little good DFC news in amongst all the gloom with the final issue coming out earlier. A group of the writers and artists who worked on the comic have put together a blog:

This from Garen Ewing, one of a number of creators who've got work done that was meant to appear, but sadly won't be seen in the pages of the DFC:

The DFC is dead... long live The DFC!

Actually, no... The DFC isn't dead. David Fickling and his inspiring team brought into this world something new and exciting, something that is just too good to disappear back into the ether. So until it finds its place again, the creators who found a home under the covers of The DFC (both published and nearly published) have come together under the guise of the Super Comics Adventure Squad!

Despite the Economic Woe, it is still an exciting time for the medium of comics and this blog will act as a hub for some of the best in British graphic storytelling talent, a place where you can keep up with what they're doing, all in one place, and where they will post
news, events, sketches and comics, with links back to their own websites where you can see and learn more.

There is already a small archive of posts to view, written over the past week as we got ready to go live, including, for instance, some of theconcepts that nearly became DFC strips (and may yet find an outlet somewhere else).

In the meantime, thank you for visiting, and please spread the word and drop in as often as you like - who knows what other exciting stuff will emerge from this little collective?

So there you go: Super Comics Adventure Squad. No substitute for the comic perhaps, but it may soften the loss a little.

On a related note, the DFC website has gone, but it has been replaced with a page with links to the concluding parts of several stories from the comic. (But, much to Molly’s disappointment, no mention of Crab Lane Crew. Jim? Jim? What do you plan Jim?)
