Well, it’s tough out there right now, no matter where you are. Hopefully you’re all keeping safe and well, looking after yourselves, and washing your hands.

Rebellion are one of the few main publishers still putting comics out while they’re still able, and this week we get a little bit of much-needed fun in a tough time with the publication of the second Cor!! Buster Special

Rebellion acquired much of the archive of classic British comics a few years ago and they’re been doing an amazing job of delivering both classic reprint material through the Treasury of British Comics and all-new Specials of these classic characters.

On April 8, the second Cor!! Buster Special comes out, yet again featuring some of the best humour comics of the Golden Age of Brit comics, all with a new spin from some of the best creators around.

Here’s just a small sampling of what you’ll find inside here, ably introduced by Franken-Bunny…
