Reads Volume 2 begins here. 4 stories, in 4 parts, over 4 issues.
Featuring: Tim Bird, Luke J. Halsall, Eleni Kalorkoti, Ricky Miller, EdieOP and Owen D. Pomery.
To kick things off we've got Luke J. Halsall and Tim Bird’s The Bullpen. A story set in the offices of a comic book publishing company at the dawn of the Silver Age of comics. Think Mad Men but with Stan Lee instead of Don Draper.
Our second strip sees Owen D. Pomery return to the characters from his hit comic, The Megatherium Club. Skeleton Crew is the first in a series of standalone adventures pitting The Club against the same “villain”, a rival scientist who looks like he might just beat our “heroes” at their own game.
Our third strip, Hitchcock & Film, is brought to you by Ricky Miller and (the hardest working man in comics) Tim Bird. They begin their look at four different periods in the life of Alfred Hitchcock along with a whistle-stop history of the development of film during his lifetime for good measure!
EdieOP rounds things off with a full-colour strip featuring The Story of Lucius Jellybean, an orphan germ, born from the union of a slug and a virus. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll probably want to leave off eating until afterwards...
And on top of all that, we've got a stunning cover by one of our favourite illustrators, Eleni Kalorkoti, who'll be sticking around to do the covers for every issue in this volume!
36 pages, printed in 170x260mm format.
