Lizard Men

(Comichaus mini-series. Buy issue 1 here, or as part of a bundle as part of the issue 2 Kickstarter here.)

Riding a tidal wave of optimism, your new favourite singer is Prime Minister of Great Britain. Events turn even more unlikely when he and his plans for change meet the shapeshifting lizard people that really *are* in charge of the world…

“…a fantastic elevator pitch of a first issue which introduces us to the oddly likeable Zamani and the weird, supernatural conspiracy he seems to have stumbled headlong into” – Big Comic Page

“Panel after panel of political context and musical evolution sets a depth of vision that immediately snares the reader…Immediately Lizard Men is a compelling read.” – Popbollocks

“…a excellent first installment which combines, melodrama, with comedy and science fiction, into something highly enjoyable.” – Graphic Policy

Chalk

(Comichaus anthology, issues 3-8 and 11-16)

 

Comichaus-4

 

Across the UK and at exactly the same time, an unspecified number of people put down their phones, tablets or laptops and kill themselves.

A young woman receives a call from another, visibly older woman, who says “Sorry mum” before doing the same.

What’s that all about, eh?

“Chalk exemplifies what I’m loving about Comichaus, it’s a blistering, genre-splitting shot in the arm that shows us the basics of the strip’s premise but injects enough mystery to make us want more.” – A Place To Hang Your Cape

“Beautifully drawn…we’re confident in saying it’s one of the most hard hitting intros to a story and despite playing its cards close to it’s chest it’s clear Chalk is going to be a flagship for Comichaus.” – Pipedream Comics

Transrealities

(CoolCookBook)

Transrealities Issue 1-1

Transrealities is about gender, time travel and punching nightmares in the face.

Shape-shifting heroine, Liz Cartwright (aka Whoever) and her team of fellow superheroes try to stop a reality-altering villain from wreaking havoc with the timeline. Separated from her team mates, Liz finds herself literally face to face with someone who forces her to question not just her past decisions, but her very identity.

“When Superhero fiction can be about anything, it’s sad that so many books are about nothing. TRANSREALITIES isn’t one of them. Here, Horry and Cooper’s clean pop lines, embolden Brady’s alternatingly wry, pained and playful voice as it circles her target and strikes. This is the authentic trans superhero comic we’ve been waiting for.” – Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE)

“The best superhero tales are the personal ones, and TRANSREALITIES is unique. Prioritizing the Sturm und Drang of muscle men punching one another, Abigail Brady and company have crafted a fantastic story where a shapeshifter faces the crux of her own identity. Stellar art, real drama and alternate realities come together in a story unlike anything you’ve ever read — and with the driest with of anything since Grant Morrison’s Invisibles.” – Magdalene Visaggio (KIM & KIM)

“Transrealities would be more than worth the price of admission if it were nothing more than a brave, timely, ferocious and utterly necessary new string to the superhero bow. That it happens to also deliver an excellently crafted and thoroughly engaging blast of entertainment from a truly talented creative team, elevates it from the worthy to the unmissable.” – Simon Spurrier (THE SPIRE, 2000AD)

Double D

(Image Comics)

DD01_00

After the official Worst Day Ever, overweight bully magnet Danny Carter discovers he can use his excess body mass to fuel superpowers. Obviously he’s going to be a superhero and fight crime, but when you’re fifteen years old and you live in the suburbs it’s not quite as easy as expected… – See more at: https://imagecomics.com/content/view/double-d-a-grade-a-read#sthash.THju7EXm.dpuf

“What follows is the most quintessentially British graphic novel you’re ever likely to read. Pulp band T-shirts are worn, teenagers wander through leafy suburbs in search of elusive crimes to fight, and – at one stage – the term ‘radioactive sausage roll’ comes up.” – Den of Geek

The Islanders

(Nasty Little Press)

The Islanders Cover

Based on the lo-fi Musical by Amy Mason, Eddie Argos and Jim Moray.

In the late nineties, teenage couple Amy Mason and Eddie Argos went on holiday to the Isle of Wight. Thirteen years on their memories of the trip vary wildly. Funny, refreshing and ultimately moving, The Islanders is about memory, first-loves and growing up. 

“Steven Horry handles the illustration, and works in a crisp, sharp style that conveys essential information while leaving space to fill in your own fine details.  Faces convey silent emotions, gestures speak volumes; the scattered moments when clouds part and color bursts through the black-and-white-and-greywash of the English summertime pack a powerful punch.  And the typesetting and design (also by Horry) tie up the edges and fill in the gaps; not simply working to tell the story, but adding atmosphere and layers of understanding.” – MTV Geek
