Book 3

Welcome to a comic that unravels the mysteries of international conspiracies, probes the enigma of the magical underworld, and asks what can three reasonably normal people do to prevent the destruction of the universe. The answer generally involves swearing and running away from stuff a lot. In Book 1, which collects issues 1-4 of the critically praised series, we meet demons, angels, robots, mad scientists, ghosts, Goths, gremlins, and really bad stand up comedians. In Book 2, which collects issues 5-8, our hapless heroes have to contend with time travel, genetic mutants, spirits of the earth, ghosts from the past and magical secret societies. Beards, Christmas and vegetarian food will never be the same again.

130 pages, b&w with colour covers, Featuring brand new covers, sketches, illustrations and commentary. All in US comic format! Most of the art has been rescanned, cleaned up, relettered and mucked about with in a special edition stylee. Each purchase of a trade paperback comes with a free back issue, not included in the collection (subject to availability)

Obviously with loads of jokes, thrown in at random.40 pages B&W with colour covers in US comic format.We have a limited number of these puppies you can order directly from us, via paypal.
