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

“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)
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.

“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

“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
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.
