Save Our Souls magazine

The first issue of Save Our Souls.


If you've read Private Eye magazine you'll be familiar with David Ziggy Greene's regular comic reports Scene and Heard. He is also the publisher and editor of a new magazine that features journalism, writing, short comics and illustrations: Save Our Souls.

I'm impressed with the quality of the contributions in the first issue. Particularly Fumio Obata's touchingly simple and matter of fact comic report from Japan on the aftermath of the 2011 tsunami Rebuilding of Hearts, Mark Stafford's emotionally powerful comic Accentuate the Positive and an article by Alpha Kamara Now that Ebola the dictator has been defeated, I realise how lucky I am to be alive. All in all a great start and I look forward to seeing the next issue.

The first issue of the magazine was financed by crowd funding, it and future issues can be bought through this website: www.samu.co.uk
