The Jock Welcome to the first issue of The Jock. It's nine years since I last typed words to that effect. The Jock began as a photocopied small press comic back in 1993 and ran for five years and twenty-seven issues (plus a couple of specials). Pretty respectable numbers for small pressers, and we're still very proud of the work we did back then (and hopefully, so are all those other guys who helped out along the way!) The Jock had a loyal following, readers who were passionate about the characters and the world in which they lived - readers who still ask, 'Hey, when's The Jock coming back?'
