Comments on Event Horizon Issue One:
SFX Magazine (4/5 stars)
"There's a wonderful whiff of comic socialism in the air. A bunch of writers and artists have come together and decided not to wait for the big companies to invite them to play and instead they've published for themselves. Commendable? Definitely… Mam Tor: Event Horizon is a quality spot of pulp fiction in comic form."
"Fantasy tales and imagery too arresting to ignore… bizarre, funny, and visionary narratives in the horror, sci-fi, and zombie-Viking-Elvis genres. The art is every bit as left-field as the writing, with rich depictions of savage brutes… and hot goths in the spirit of Heavy Metal magazine."
"The future of British comics just sort of fell into my lap."
