The current world of global politics can often feel like they are the plots of an outlandish comic book. Which is great for those creating polically themed comic books as they can use it for inspiration. Two great example of this are R. Sikoryak’s Unquitable Trump which transposes the presdient tweets on to superhero covers. And just when you thought things couldn’t get worse, the guys from Man Vs Rock are back with their own take on things with UnPresidential!

We were lucky enough to round-up a slew of great books ahead of this year’s Nottingham Comic Convention, including Midnight Man: Gunspace, Perrywinkle and many more. But we also managed to pick up some great book on the day, and here are some of our favourites including the new chapters of Reckless Hero’s space western The Last Sheriff,  James Lawrences’ Legend of Mariposa zines, The Marionette Unit and Accent UK’s Westernoir.

The first volume of Alexis Deacon’s Geis was a dark fairytale that saw an evil sorceress takeover a kingdom and challenge the residents to compete for the right to be chief. But with new volume Geis Volume 2: A Game Without Rules, the stakes are higher than ever as the sorceress reveals her deadly intentions to two of the competitors, and the games become more complex and dangerous. But will A Game Without Rules be another winner, or could it do with better instructions?

Thanks to critically acclaimed books like Endless Summer and I Love This Part, Tillie Walden has become one of the most interesting voices on the indie scene today. But for her follow up to the surreal sci-fi of our Indie Comic Of The Year In A Sunbeam she has opted for an auto-biographical tale about ice skating in Texas. Will this be a gold medal winning performance or will it fall flat on the ice?

It’s the spookiest day of the year and to celebrate the day of ghosts and ghouls we take a look at three frightful indie horror comics including: Leah Moore and John Reppions latest collection of MR James short stories in Ghost Stories of An Antiquary Volume 2; the hilarious and horrible Horrere Halloween Special; plus Thom Burgess’ terrifying travellers tale Hallows Fell.

After eighteen months of fevered anticipation, we finally get to see the third chapter of Improper Books’ Porcelain saga. One of the jewels of the UK indie scene, Benjamin Read, Chris Wildgoose and their talented team are back together to bring us Porcelain: Ivory Tower – but can this third volume maintain the magic Porcelain released with its first two instalments or will its success finally shatter?
