The Phoenix celebrates five years!

It was the indie comic that could, and did! The Phoenix celebrates five years of continuous publication this week with a special cover carrying the autographs of its contributors. 

A remarkable achievement in an industry that is far smaller than it used to be, The Phoenix is a weekly comic for children that features all originated content and no advertisements and no bagged gifts. It's never wavered from its intent and its five years of publication should be respected and celebrated by everyone interested in comics.   

Its achievement is all the more extraordinary in that it relies almost solely on subscriptions, although it is available in selected branches of WH Smith, Waitrose, and some comics shops. 

You can find out more at the comic's website:

My thanks to Jamie Smart for the cover photograph.
