So, by now the secret is out across the internet. There is an Issue Zero of the new children's comic The Phoenix, Ben Haggarty and I have got a five page comic strip called The Apprentice residing within it's freshly hatched pages.
Issue one of The Phoenix, featuring lots of lovely other artists (not I) will be available in the first week of January 2012 through subscription (check out The Phoenix website for details) and hopefully through more traditional outlets. But that's 2012, for now you can get issue zero by going to the Phoenix website, it may not be that straight forward for some but with a little effort you will be sent a pristine copy of this 32 page full colour, story-centric issue in a special printed envelope... for FREE.
Internet ordering process explained more eloquently than I ever could here by Mr Neil Cameron... and also here by The Etherington Brothers.
