Blazer! #1
01/04/2021
Published by The77 Publications
£4.95

From the mind of The Mighty One - Steve MacManus (2000 AD)!

"Blazer! began as the working title for a new comic being developed by Goodenough Publications in my novel The SheerGlam Conspiracy.

The novel charts a circulation war between two rival comics publishing companies in 1970s London. To establish an outright dominance in the market, one of the companies hires two scriptwriters to create a new title, which is codenamed GNP 13.

Having introduced the notion of a new comic, I felt it my duty to the reader to describe what strips would be in this fictitious title, supposedly being readied for launch in the spring of 1974.

Before I knew it, I found myself scripting the first episodes of each strip. And I felt quite pleased with myself when it occurred to me to include the scripts as an epilogue in The SheerGlam Conspiracy."


Blazer! is a 32-page, indie anthology comic in the style of the British newsstand weeklies of the 1970s such as Battle Picture Weekly, Action, 2000 AD and Starlord. In one sense, it is more a reflection of Lion comic or Valiant comic in that its strips cover a variety of genres rather than being specifically about war, sport or science fiction.
