B7 magazine April 2024
Joe Dredd
Our friends at CultEdge are bringing us issue 23 of the B7 magazine!

Very much a follow-on from the official Marvel magazine, as the look and numbering will attest, but now in full colour! It includes a B7 comic strip based on "Rescue", looking rather Ian Kennedy-ish in parts, a text story, Ask Orac, a Blake's Junction 7 feature, Dorian poster, a 'post cards from Servalan' piece, an interview with Tony Attwood, an article on B7E's proposed animated B7, and more!

Just fantastic news.

Will Vila's Gags be appearing?

The latest on CultEdge's X feed is that the 124 page 'magazine' will have a UK price of £21.25 (plus postage and packing). This includes a donation to charity.

Personally, I'd like that - if they were decent jokes.

It's got an Ask Orac as well. I really hope they manage to strike the right tone.

The new B7 magazine, number 24 - I'm so glad to see they corrected it from 23! - is now available to order from Lulu:

Thanks for posting the link.

Thanks so much for the link…order placed!

Just in case anyone is wondering…order to the UK, and using a 15% coupon, plus shipping and taxes, the total comes to £26.41…

Worth every penny! 👍🏼

There has been a problem ordering the zine for some. The 15% discount does not work for some people. Me included. I tried to order the zine three times yesterday but no go for the coupon being accepted. I'll try again later but I'd rather order it with the coupon than without. Other than that, it looks good.

The coupon I used, WELCOME15 only seems to work for first orders, so I had to log out of my Lulu account, and then check out using guest checkout, and a different email address…

Do that, and the 15% coupon should work 👍🏼

Good luck…

I've just received an email from Lulu with the code SUNSHINE15 for 15% off any printed book. "This promotion is for 15% off when ordering printed products at Lulu.com. Offer is valid through May 3, 2024."
 
Joe Dredd
Just popped in to say what LastSpaceRat has said: SUNSHINE15 is this week's discount code. If you've already been 'welcomed', the introductory WELCOME15 won't work.

I've ordered my copy today. Delivery expected in 10 days time.

I'll try that. Thank you!

Edit: It worked, Zine on its way! Many thanks.

That's just great!
 
Joe Dredd
I'm really pleased they added the "Terry Nation's" to the logo on both magazines. The logos on the books looked wrong to me.
 
Paula
Great news- 500 sold already! We are in a new golden age for our beloved B7.

Brilliant news about the numbers...just shows there is still a massive following, and demand, for Blakes 7...(remastered Blu Ray, anyone???)...

My copy of issue 24 has just shipped, so I should have it by the end of the week! Smile

It looks great, they really nailed it

We got our copy of the B7 zine and just looking at it for a moment, it was gloriously full of content and photos even I had not seen before! Can't wait to get dug into it as it looks like a real winner. I'll be ordering the second zine when it comes out, to be sure!

My B7 issue 24 just arrived (5 days from my shipped email to it arriving...and that's with regular shipping selected, not expedited)...

It just oozes quality! you are all going to love it when it arrives...an amazing piece of work!

That's my Saturday evening sorted, as I read it from cover to cover...

Fingers crossed for everyone else's copy arriving soon!

I like the comic strip adaptation of Rescue. A few dialogue changes from the televised episode - were these in the original script or just added by Jonathan Helm? Also, a clever idea to only give us part one so we all have to buy the next magazine for the conclusion!

Yes, I did. I used the SUNSHINE15 code, but that may not be useable now. The code changes often.

A review by Ian Marchant no less. Lovely to finally see his cat.
