Great news for all readers!

As noted in my last art fail post, Storm Force is very... silly in places. The artwork is good, but at the same time it can be often hard to describe. In a world of knife suits, mutant spider goons, malformed henchmen, shark-shaped cars and armies of insane killer robots, it's actually rather hard to write good, succinct descriptions of what the comic is depicting and what's going on.

Fortunately, a bizarre form of salvation has arrived. Action Force fan site Blood for the Baron has begun a Storm Force ongoing scans project aimed at digitally recreating every issue of Storm Force. The goal is to cover everything from it's origin in Battle to it's two-year run in Eagle after the two merged, as well as one-offs, annuals, holiday specials and even text stories. It's a very lofty goal, given that the strip is otherwise unknown and dwells in the lands of obscurity. It also means that you can get to see Storm Force in its full, nay insane, glory.

On a related note, the fantastic Great News for All Readers has been an invaluable resource for me. The amount of information present, weather simply on-site or though its many, many links, has immensely helped me fill gaps in my knowledge and expand the material I have to work with. Plus it has scans of many obscure pieces, often with gorgeous art that's sadly overlooked. I cannot recommend it enough.
