Funtime Comics & Art Zine Presents: Tales from Pandemia #33

'Best Kept from Unsanitised Hands!'

Comics inspired by the global coronavirus pandemic.

That our 2020 issue of Funtime Comics should be focused around Covid-19 was a no brainer. A year plagued by the virus, panic, loss, lockdowns, mis-information, conspiracies and economic crisis brought on by the pandemic has turned the world on its head. Crisis brings out the best and worst of humanity - but it's creatives that tackle these issues through their creative expression that can help us through uncertainty.
